I’m a little obsessed with Disney World. When I went as a child, the trip was so magical and memorable that I spent the rest of my childhood daydreaming about it. And when I got the chance to go as an adult- it didn’t disappoint.
Given my love for Disney- it’s not surprising that I’ve been fantasizing about taking my own little girl there since before she was born. Heck- before she was even conceived! But I dont want to take her when she is too young to have fun- so I’ve been trying to strategize the right time to make the trip. And now- I think I have something to wait for! There is word that the Magic Kingdom may be doing the biggest expansion it’s done in my lifetime.
The Orlando Sentinel reports plans have been leaked. Are they legit- who knows. But if they are…then Princesses are about to takeover the Magic Kingdom. And as a mom of an already Tinkerbelle obsessed toddler- nothing could make me happier! See some renderings below…

From what I can gather the expansion includes an area for Winnie the Pooh, as well as Tinkerbelle and her fellow fairies, Princess Aurora, Cinderella, and the Little Mermaid.
No date has been set for groundbreaking or completion, but I would gladly wait a couple years to visit the Magic Kingdom after these additions will be put in place! It sounds wonderful! My fingers are crossed that the plans are met with enthusiasm and they start digging soon! My little girl is going to be ready for her first visit soon!
Have you taken kids to Disney? What age do you think is a good time to go?
