    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!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
