    Hi Erin. Glad you're back on panel as I feel your answers are always right on. Originally from Binghamton. My ? is it permissable to email you directly to go over my plans for my trip to see if I am overdoing it or work out a "better plan of attack&

    You sure know how to make a girl feel great!

    Disney requires that we conduct all Moms Panel business through the website, so I can't help you directly. However, you are welcome to ask me, or any panelist, as many direct questions as you want via the site. Click on the Meet the Moms button, click on a bio, then click Ask Erin (or whomever) a Question. Some tips for readers:

    - You are more likely to have your question answered if you ask a specific panelist directly. We get so many questions that we can't answer them all, but the ones directly specifically to us do tend to catch our eye more.

    - You will get better answers if you ask lots of small questions rather than one big question. For example, if you want to know about tickets and restaurants, ask two separate questions. We'll have more room to give you good answers.

    As for your concern about your trip. It is very easy to overdo it at WDW. The inclination is to try to "do it all," but this is not possible. I have been to WDW dozens of times and still have many things on my to do list. To do a reality check, make a list of your priorities: top five rides at each park, top five characters to meet, top three restaurants to enjoy, etc. Make a plan to accomplish that and consider everything else to be a bonus. Remember, it's YOUR vacation, do what makes YOU happy. It's OK to skip the Tower of Terror if you're terrified. It's OK to take a nap if naps rock your world. It's OK to eat three table service meals a day if you want to splurge. You get the idea :-)  Disney World is not going anywhere. You can come back over and over to experience more of the magic.

    Feel free to ask as many questions as you need to help make your trip to WDW special!
