    Hi, Karlin!

    A first vacation to Walt Disney World is so much fun, but it can be a bit overwhelming!  Let me start a basic itinerary for you, and then you can build on it.  Here we go!

    June 2  Arrive, check out Fort Wilderness.  Dining suggestion:  Dinner at Trail's End buffet, then join Chip and Dale right at Fort Wilderness for a campfire and sing-along!

    June 3  Hollywood Studios.  Dining suggestion:  Lunch at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater

    June 4  Animal Kingdom.   Dining suggestion: Breakfast at Tusker House with Donald Duck

    June 5  Magic Kingdom.  Dining suggestion:  Early breakfast or lunch at Crystal Palace with Pooh and pals

    June 6  Epcot.   Dining suggestion:  Garden Grill in Land Pavilion with Chip, Dale, and Mickey Mouse

    June 7  Quick visit to a favorite park, then time to head home. See Ya Real Soon!

    You can add it the park hopping however you like, perhaps you want to switch parks for a nighttime fireworks show or parade, adjust to what you have on your "to do" list. Remember to make dining reservations for all table service locations.  

    I hope this is a start.  Let me know if you need more details or suggestions, I am happy to help!
