    Andrea - My first trip to Disney is in 42 days & it is daunting trying to plan all the meals and get the best options! I saw in a post to Lisa on 10-9 you had a secret about the DDP-is that something you would be willing to share with me? Thanks!

    Hello, Brian!

    Wow! Your first trip to Walt Disney World is in 42 days; you must be so excited!

    Planning your first trip to WDW can surely be a daunting endeavor, though; try not to worry about anything that you might have missed, as it is impossible to see and do everything in one trip. Best to pick your must-sees and work from there.

    Regarding the secret? I am all about sharing, especially if it helps to bring a magical moment to others as they enjoy all the wonders of WDW. Lean in, here's the skinny...

    Guests who book a Fantasmic! Dining Package at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano at  Disney's Hollywood Studios, using their Dining Plan are ALSO entitled to order an appetizer from that really great menu. Click on over to MM's page and take a look at the Lunch & Dinner PDF to see why this is such a great deal. That's one appetizer PER Dining Plan-participating GUEST on the reservation, not per table. Can't beat it, and the appetizers are all delicious and gorgeously presented as well. (Okay, now I'm craving their Calamari. Better book a flight...)

    Please feel free to send me details regarding your upcoming trip. I'd love to help you narrow down your choices so that you're in the best parks at the best times with the best reservations for your particular interests. For me, it's like putting together a really great jigsaw puzzle that YOU get to take with you and enjoy. What could be better? :-)
