    We have never been to Disney World as a family. We want to take our 4 year old son in September. I need help on where to begin to plan a trip and possibly organizing what we do each day. Do you have suggestions? We will probably only stay 4 nights.

    Hello, Lauren!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    First, you are visiting during a great time of year!  The crowds are not too overwhelming which will ease up your wait times.  Second, there is so much to do and see that the best way to experience Walt Disney World is to let your excitement guide you.  Many folks ask for an itinerary only to discover that they took their own approach once inside the parks.  However, there are some helpful tips that I love to share with guests visiting with young children.

    I recently shared some, in my opinion, great tips with a guest seeking some advice for their upcoming visit. Please read my response which may offer you some helpful TIPS as you continue with your WDW planning.  
    I would also like to add that I would spend two full days at the Magic Kingdom followed by Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.  Epcot is a wonderful place, but I feel there is so much more for the little ones to experience at DHS, MK and AK.  Now if you have the Park Hopper Option, and are really considering visiting all 4 parks, then I would split my day between Animal Kingdom and Epcot.  Again, these are only my suggestions based on my past experiences, but I hope they help with your planning.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"~
