    My family and I are planning a trip to WDW in april and I wanted to know, well need to know about everything. The best way to get there, the best (reasonable hotels, and what to do when we get there. 2 adults and a 20 month old will be traveling

    Walt Disney World is one destination where having a game plan will help your family enjoy your vacation to its fullest.

    Since you are just beginning to draft your plans, we'll start at the beginning with how to get to Orlando. I would price out flights, although generally I get the best deals when booking farther in advance of my trip. Decide whether the extra time driving with a young child is suitable for your family. One advantage of driving is that you could bring your own stroller, snacks and a case of water!

    The most reasonable hotels at WDW are the value resorts. Take a look at the value resorts to keep your hotel budget low. The resorts that offer the best value, in my opinion, are the moderate resorts. At the moderate resorts, you'll enjoy decent size rooms and many more amenities for your money!

    Once there, you'll want to spend some time at your resort relaxing. Then head to your first park the following morning. Be there when the park opens. You'll enjoy low crowds by touring first thing in the morning. How long do you plan on staying? You should devote at least 2 days to the Magic Kingdom!
