    My family and I are going to Disney World this May We have a four year old and two year old. We are not staying on Disney property, my in-laws are taking us on this trip so we are staying at a time share. How should I prepare?

    Howdy Michelle!  I'm so excited for you and know your family is going to love their time at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    When my family is planning our next Disney vacation, we make a schedule to determine what days we will be visiting each Theme Park.  Once our Theme Park schedule is made, we plan our dining.  If you plan on having any table service meals, I would advise to you make any needed dining reservations as soon as possible so you can best maximize your time in the Theme Parks.  There are several dining recommendations I can make.  Do you have boys, girls or one of each?  On our last visit to Walt Disney World, we dined at Chefs de France in the Epcot World Showcase.  Chef Remy, the "pint-sized prodigy" visits Guests atop a rolling chefs cart four times a day, six days a week.  Remy was a huge hit with my 6 and 3 year old.

    Is this your first trip to Walt Disney World?  Make sure you have a stroller for both of your children as you will all do a great deal of walking.  I would also try to build in some time to rest each day.   

    I would love to know what all your in-laws have planned for your vacation!  We have been to Walt Disney World with both sets of Grandparents and there is nothing more magical than watching Grandma and Grandpa see the awe and wonder in the eyes of their grandchildren when they first Mickey Mouse or ride on Dumbo.  I know you are going to have a magical time!!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
