    16 Days 'til my family's 1st WDW trip!!! Know @ online check-in, up to 10 days prior. Need to contact airlines 24 hrs prior to flight...Right? Anything I am missing, as far as Pre-trip things?? Thanx for the help. You guys are an immense help!!

    I am so thrilled to hear about your upcoming trip! We just got back from a lovely stay at the Cabins in Disney's Fort Wilderness! An awesome experience I totally recommend. As for planning your vacation, sounds like you are doing a fantastic job. Here are a few tips that always assist us when we travel to Walt Disney World. Weigh your luggage at home and make sure you are in compliance with the airline requirements. I would also make sure you enough space to add the awesome treats and souvenirs you all will be coming home with. Make sure you have your park tickets ready to go when you arrive. If you get in early and the room is not ready, the bell hops will gladly watch your luggage while you all ride all the great attractions! If you are riding on Disney's Magical Express make sure you bring an extra sweater on the bus ride. The air conditioning is on high and it can get pretty cool in there. Comfortable clothing and shoes are a must as well as a cheap poncho in case you get caught in a shower. I think that should get things started for an awesome trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.
