    Hi Doug, We will be taking our first trip in Sept. to WDW with 5 adults & of 2 yr old twin boys. Suggestions on an itinerary, ADRs, etc. We are staying at Polynesian Resort with dining pkg & 6 MYW park passes. It's all a bit overwhelming. Thx.


    I am glad to help! The first trip is always the best!

    Don't feel overwhelmed. It really is not as much work as you think it is.

    First step: your daily park itinerary. If you send me another question letting me know when you are arriving and departing (day and time), I can give you some ideas of what park to visit on which days.

    As a family with a 2 year old, you will find that the Magic Kingdom is where you should spend the most time. But let the adults have fun too! With 6 days, spend 2 days at the Magic Kingdom, 1 at the Animal Kingdom, 1 at Epcot, and 1 at Hollywood Studios. With that 6th day, you could either plan another day at whatever park most intrigues you, or you could leave that day open to deciding later in the vacation after you have tried out all four parks.

    The next step will be dining. After we get the itinerary set, we can work on that!

    So write me back with that info, and we can get the plan worked out right away!

    Have a magical vacation!
