    Considering a trip to DW last wk of April. This will be our first trip with the kids. Is is possible to plan a trip in 6-8 wks and be able to schedule all the "must do" dining and activities?

    Hey, Stephanie! I've actually planned a Disney vacation in less than a week!  Although we didn't do everything we had planned, we certainly had a great time and didn't feel deprived.  So, planning a WDW vacation in 6-8 weeks is absolutely possible!

    With so much to do and see (and eat!) at WDW, sometimes it helps to narrow down the planning by starting with the dining options.  As soon as you've booked your room, call 407-WDW-DINE and give the cast member your preferences for dining and the days you'll be there.  Then, you can book your ADRs based on what's available each day.  Remember that eating at off times may help you get reservations at some of the more popular restaurants.  (We like to eat late breakfasts, early dinners and snack in between.)

    Before you call, take a look at the calendar for each park for your vacation time so that you have an idea of park hours, Extra Magic Hours, special events and entertainment schedules (fireworks, parades, etc.).  This will help you in your planning process as well.  If you have more specific questions, come visit me again on the Moms Panel, I'd love to help!

    Have a beautiful Alabama day and a magical vacation!
