    We just booked our first trip and are STOKED!!! We have a family of 4 (girl 5 and boy 6). The site is OVERWHELMING. I am a planner and I'm really stressing out about it. Where is the best place to really plan (shows, dinners, fireworks, etc). Thanks!!


    You have come to the right place! You are now talking to some big-time Disney planners!

    Here is what I suggest you do;

    • Map out the days that you are here.
    • Go to the park calendars and get the operating hours for each park, including Extra Magic Hours. Do that by going to "Plan" and "Park Hours".
    • FYI, when you click on a particular day you can even get the schedule for entertainment for that day (i.e. parades, fireworks, select shows).
    • Figure out what park you will visit on what day.
    • Next, schedule meals for each day, based on where you are going to be.

    So you ask now, "Great, but how do I know what parks to go to on each day? Where should we eat? What should we make sure not to miss?". Just ask us! Give us some info on the days you are coming, where you are staying, what your interests are (like food, Disney characters, etc.). We can then offer some personalized recommendations.

    To ask me (or another member of the panel) a question directly, just go to my bio page. I can then get to work helping you plan!

    Have a magical vacation!
