    Hi We have booked our first trip to Disney. We are starying in a house off site. Woundering what tip & help you can pass on to make the planning easier. There is Me, hubby DS 9 and Twin DD 6. We have tickets all booked. Thanks

    Hi Natasha! Be sure to make Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) as soon as possible. Not making ADRs is the number one mistake first timers make! They can be made online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE. I also suggest picking up the book "The Complete Walt Disney World" by Julie and Mike Neal. It's the perfect book for first timers with just the right amount of information, without being overwhelming. It's also a beautiful book full of color photographs. It should give you lots of ideas for your trip. When we stay offsite, we generally plan on not taking breaks if it's a long drive back to the hotel. Thus we will usually back some snacks to bring with us. Good luck with planning!
