    Hello! Our Family is going on our 1st DW trip in October for Halloween and are staying at the Pop Century. Can you give me any info on the hotel.....also how can I plan an itinerary ??


    Firs off, great hotel choice! I know sometimes I help people who say "Well, it is just a Value hotel!", but I think it is GREAT! The hotel is centrally located, which is a plus, and you can learn more about it here.

    As to planning your daily itinerary, here is what I like to do. First, I get the family together and write down the top things that each person wants to do. What we call the "Must Do!" list. A great place to get ideas on what those might be can come from navigating the Walt Disney World Website, and getting a travel guide. Then I map out for each day the following items of where we are going for;

    • Breakfast
    • Morning Park 
    • Lunch
    • Afternoon activity
    • Dinner
    • Evening entertainment

    I plan what park to go to every day, but I always recommend starting at the Magic Kingdom on a first trip. Then plan your meals based on where you are going to be at those times.

    This is obviously just a start. If you want more detail on further planning, feel free to send me a follow-up question from my bio page.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
