    I am beginning to plan a visit with my husband and 5yo (at the time of visit) for Sept 2019. There is so much to do and look at it is overwhelming (in a good way). What do you suggest we need to see or focus on so we do not miss out on any fun times!?

    Hi Shaina,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's exciting to plan a Walt Disney World vacation! You're so right that there's lot of magic to see and do and experience. What's great, I think, is that you're giving yourself plenty of time to plan well and to have some fun doing the planning.

    I always suggest starting out with requesting the Free Planning Videos. The videos offer a really helpful and fun overview of the theme parks, their attractions, and their entertainment. You can get to see suggestions tailored for you and your family. I also suggest the newly introduced Tickets & Visit Guide that presents "something for everyone" suggestions, whether you're a first-time visitor, a thrill seeker, a food lover, vacationing as adults, or vacationing with little ones. What I especially like about the Tickets & Visit Guide is that it shares tips and advice from the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    As for things to focus on, here are a few quick tips. Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel offers lots of benefits, including Extra Magic Hours that provide more time to enjoy the parks. I always feel adding in a Character Dining experience like Chef Mickey's makes for memorable moments. And I never miss a chance to take in the nighttime fireworks spectaculars and park parades.

    As you get into planning, ask us all your questions. We're happy to help!

    Shaina, here's wishing you a magical stay for your Walt Disney World vacation.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
