    Hi everyone! I need help please! I would like to surprise my 9 year old with a trip for spring break, however i am not sure where to start. She has talked about a certain lodge , but i need help with all the other stuff. Any help is greatly needed.

    You've come to the right place, Jennifer; the moms are happy to help!  It sounds like you're a bit overwhelmed by the planning process.  Let me walk you through the steps and then you can check back with us for any follow up questions you might have.  You've already got two steps taken care of: choosing a time to visit and deciding on a resort.  The next thing you're going to want to do is actually book your trip.  Call 407-WDW-STAY to do that.  From there, you'll want to make dining reservations at approximately 180 days out.  Do that by calling 407-WDW-DINE.  Like I said, the moms are happy to offer dining recommendations based on your preferences.  The next step would be to consider any extras such as a visit to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or dining with the characters.  Once you've got all of those decisions made, the hardest thing to do will be wait for your trip dates to arrive.  Hopefully, this gives you a good overview of the steps to take.  If you need help along the way, the best thing you can do is write back to the moms and ask a single question, such as, "Which rides will my daughter like best at Magic Kingdom?" or "Can you give me some dining recommendations for Epcot?"  We're happy to help you plan the most magical trip imaginable!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
