    Can anyone help me find a live representative from Disney like a trip advisor? I have never gone to Disney in Florida. I am from New York. I want to take my family of 4 but I want to make sure we do the absolute most. Looking for a day by day schedule/ etc

    Hi Skyler,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am delighted to hEAR that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. I remember planning our first trip with our girls to the Walt Disney World Resort and really wanting someone to help me select our resort hotel and plan all of the details of our vacation. Although we have fabulous Cast Members who can help you book your vacation package if you call 407-939-5277, it sounds like you may want to work with a travel agent. While I cannot recommend one, I will say that, when planning that first trip, I picked an agency that was close to our house because I liked going to plan in person. There are, however, plenty of ways they can help online and over the phone.

    Prior to speaking with someone, I do recommend that you familiarize yourself with the different categories of resort hotels - value, moderate, deluxe, and deluxe villa. Then choose your anticipated travel dates and price a vacation package (with resort hotel and theme park tickets) online. Also check the Special Offers that might be applicable during the dates of your visit. Once I get that initial price, I continue to check the Special Offers to see if others are released prior to my visit. I also suggest that you check out some of our Panel Extras for more great planning advice.

    Given your travel dates, you have plenty of time. On our first trip with the girls, my parents joined us, and we stayed in a 2 Bedroom Villa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. It was wonderful to have the family together with a kitchen, laundry room, and two bathrooms. We have since come to love deluxe and deluxe villa resorts because of the wonderful amenities they offer, especially the dining options. As it gets closer to the dates of your trip, do make advanced dining reservations. A few of our favorite restaurants are Cinderella's Royal Table, Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera, and California Grill.

    Skyler, use this time to get an idea of the cost of your trip so you can plan accordingly. Our girls love to save their own money so they can purchase souvenirs in the parks. We are so excited to welcome you to a world of magic!

    Magic and memories,
