    In the beginning stages of planning my first ever WDW trip with my 18 month old son and my mom. I would like to stay in a resort and take advantage of the free meal plan. I am looking at the early part of December 2011 and I am feeling

    Hi Amber!  Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!  I understand how it can feel overwhelming when you are planning a trip to WDW for your first time - or even your 50th!  There are so many choices!  However, this is definitely to be looked upon as a positive thing, because you can choose the BEST options for YOU, personally!

    First, check out the the web page for the "Special Offer" with the Free Disney Dining by clicking HERE.  You will notice that you have a choice between staying at a Disney "Value Resort" or a "Moderate Resort".  Also, take note of the dates for which this package is available.

    Once you have made your resort, date, and package selections, secure your reservation either online on the page referred to above, or by calling (407) 939-1880.

    Once this is completed, the fun really begins!  It's time to begin planning which parks you will visit on each day and any Character Dining experiences you would like to try.  I highly recommend making your Advanced Dining Reservations for these experiences as soon as you possibly can - they can be made up to 180 days in advance.

    Please come back to ask us more questions at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel as often as you'd like, or peruse through some of the older questions and answers on our web page in the categories of interest to you to find some wonderful tips from all of the Panelists.  I hope you all have a magical first experience at Walt Disney World!
