    Hello Disney Moms, I was wondering what steps I can do now to prepare myself for 1st WDW trip in 2015, depending if in June my. Daughters will be 7& 2 but if in August before my older one starts school my little one would have already turned 3. Help p

    Hi Roselee! 2015 seems so far away but I think we both know the time will go by super fast! The first thing you should do is order a free Disney planning DVD. This DVD will give you an overview of the different resorts, theme parks, water parks and much more. If anything, it will get you super excited for your Walt Disney World vacation!

    Next, you'll want to figure out when to go. It sounds like you are deciding between June and August. In your situation, I would choose June as your youngest daughter will be able to enter the parks without a ticket which will save you money.

    You'll also need to start thinking about where you'll want to stay.  There are many resorts to choose from in deluxe, moderate or value categories. Please let us know if you need help deciding on a resort.

    The next step would be to start thinking about where you want to dine. I know it seems early but Disney allows guests to book their dining reservations 180 days in advance - and believe me, the more popular restaurants will be difficult to reserve if you wait too long.

    Roselee, unfortunately we have limited space we can use for our answers. There is a link on Disney's website you can review that is geared towards planning your first vacation for more planning tips. Take a look at that page and please write back with any specific questions you may have.
