    how to begin --extended family teenage kids

    Hi Linda!

    The beginning is one my favorite parts of planning a vacation because that's where the adventure begins! 

    First of all I always start with WHEN?  What time of year are you planning on going, and what is good for the rest of the family?  Do you want to visit in the slower months, or are you planning a holiday or summer vacation? 

    Second is BUDGET?  What is your budget for this vacation experience?  Will all of your family want to stay at the same resort?  Disney offers Value, Moderate, and Deluxe resorts--something for every budget--this will help you decide WHERE you stay and for HOW LONG

    I always suggest starting by ordering a Vacation Planning DVD, and checking out the Resorts section of the website.  Look around, see what catches your eye, discuss plans with family and then...LET THE MAGIC BEGIN! 

    Have a magical vacation!
