    Hi! My family will be checking in on Sept. 29th and will be there a week,We have a 2 year old little boy. My husband was 7 the last time he was there and I have never been so needless to say we need a little help planning our trip!! Thanks so much!


    Well we are here to help!

    So planning can include a lot of things, or just a few. What I would recommend you do is this;

    1. Plan out where you are going, and on what day.
    2. I recommend with a 2-year old that you spend 2-3 days at the Magic Kingdom, 1 day at the Hollywood Studios, 1 day at the Animal Kingdom, and 1 day at Epcot.
    3. Decide what table service meals you want to have, and make reservations for them asap. I would not plan more than 1 a day, and not more than 2 character meals for your entire trip.
    4. Figure out what your transportation plans are for getting to/from Walt Disney World, and when you are here how you plan to get to/from your resort to the parks.
    5. Get to know your resort in advance so that you can know what is available to do there. 
    In all these cases, and others that may not be covered here, I would write a separate question each to the Moms Panel (I am glad to help, just mention me in the start of the question) for some added guidance. We can help you plan out more. Just tell us more about where you are staying, what you like to do, what kinds of foods are your favorites, and anything else you think might be relevant. This way we can recommend where to go on what day, some good dining recommendations, and maybe some insight into things to do at your hotel.If you split the questions up we can provide more detail to each response.

    Have a magical vacation!
