That's a crazy vague question, without something beyond the "8 year old girl" description, it's hard to start suggesting out of the blue.
So my answer is: Magic Kingdom. Two days minimum.
May 2011 POP for 6 days
Nov 2012 Contemporary for 7 days and MVMCP
Sept 2013 Contemporary for 8 days and MNSSHP
May 2014 cancelled due to FP+ debacle
and dozens of off site trip stays.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!
Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Your timing is good.
As I understand it, the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party JUST opened up its books for October. Call today and book it. You get to sit, almost right in front of the castle, with a wonderful array of desserts. Tinkerbell flies right over your head. And you have an uncrowded SEAT for fireworks.
Tickets are very hard to get-- there's a whole thread here dedicated to it, and people have been stalking Disney waiting for the book to open. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3144695
And, while you're calling Disney dining, consider having a meal at Aukerhaus in Norway at Epcot. FIVE princess will come to your table for autographs and pictures.
Beyond that, it's VERY easy to get carried away with things that can add significant money. Remember: you're in Disney World. She's going to have the time of her life regardless of what you do.
