    I want to bring my family to visit a few parks such as Epcot and one other but not sure how to start. My son is 9 and adventurous and my daughter is 7. Is there a Disney tour guide that can guide us through the parks so we can see everything?

    Hello, Tassia! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with a question for me. Your family is going to love visiting the most magical place on earth and your children are at such a wonderful age to go and enjoy all of the magic in store for them. 

    Tassia, I know it can seem overwhelming to start planning a Walt Disney World vacation. There is so much to see and do. Truth be told, I've been going my entire life and still can find new things to enjoy, that's one of the reasons I love visiting so much. Each of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks offers something to love, there isn't a wrong choice for you and your family to visit. 

    If you are looking to have a truly memorable day that is taken care of for you, then a Disney Private VIP Tour might be something that you are interested in. This is a personalized tour just for your family and is a one-of-a-kind experience. A Private VIP Tour includes pre-arrival planning, a flexible start time picked by you, a chance to visit multiple Walt Disney World Theme Parks in one day, experiencing some of your must-do attractions with little to no wait and a Guide throughout your tour. This is an absolute dream come true experience. To speak to a Cast Member about this tour and to book you can call 407-560-4033. 

    A Private VIP Tour isn't always in the budget but you can still have a memorable day without one! Start by making a list of all of the attractions at the parks you plan to visit. Let your kids select their top 3-5 attractions each and do those first. If you arrive anywhere between 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to park opening, it's going to set your day up for success. You'll be able to walk on several attractions when you get there and you'll be amazed at how much you'll cross off of your must-experience list by lunchtime. Then, in the afternoon, when the parks tend to be the busiest I always encourage people to take a break and go enjoy the pool. No one loves waiting in long lines and with the Florida heat, the pool is a better option. Then when the kids have had their fill of splish splashin' around you can clean up and head back to the parks. You'll notice that after dinnertime the parks tend to thin out and this is prime time to get in some of those other attractions you missed in the morning. 

    Tassia, I know you are going to plan such a great trip for your family and I am here to help. Please feel free to come back and ask me any other questions you might have throughout the planning process. 

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
