    This will my our families first disney vacation in june. we have an 11 yr old and a 5 yr old. I am trying to figure out a budget. i chose music value resort, no park hopper, and the quick dining feature. will be driving from michigan. is this a good start?

    Hi Amanda,

    I would definitely say that you have made a fantastic start in planning your very first trip to Walt Disney World!

    By staying at one of the Value Resort which are big on fun but small on cost you this will ensure that you will be staying right in the heart of the magic and will be eligible for all of the Resort hotel benefits which include complimentary Airport transportation via Disney's Magical Express and extended theme park hours. 

    As this will be your first visit, Magic Your Way Base park tickets will be ideal as you will not need to park hop as your time will be spent most effectively by spending whole days at the theme parks and by adding the Quick-Service Dining Plan you will also be saving money.

    I would now suggest that you spend some time looking at all there is to offer at each of the four theme parks on the Walt Disney World website, making a note of your must-dos at each park which will help you to get an idea of how many days you would like to spend at each park. This is something that you can get the whole family involved in and will be a lot of fun!

    Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to visit us again.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
