    Hi. This is our first ever visit to WDW. Any tips for us? DD is turning 4 and DS is almost 3 (ticket is still free yay!). Most likely staying at Swan. Planning for a 4-5 day trip. CM is a must- (lunch preferred). Tips? Suggestions? Must dos? Thank you!!!

    Hi there, Aimee!

    How exciting that you're planning your family's first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! With just a little bit of planning ahead, you can really make a big difference and you've come to the right place for some help!

    The first thing I recommend is to place your order for your Free Disney Parks Vacation Planning DVD. Once it arrives, you can sit down with your kiddos and watch the magic that is in store for you. The kids will surely see some things that will excite them and you'll instantly know that those things are not-to-be-missed.

    Chef Mickey's is definitely a must! It's especially fabulous that one of your little ones is still under 3 and will be able to eat off of your plate. I think your kids will just love watching the monorail glide by overhead while you're enjoying your meal too. This is a very popular location and reservations are highly recommended. You can make dining reservations either online or by calling 407.WDW.DINE [939.3463].

    With the ages of your kids in mind, I think you'll probably want to spend most of your time at Magic Kingdom Park. You'll find the most age-appropriate Attractions there with no height requirement. Check out the Traveling With Little Ones section of the website for lots more recommendations. If your kids are Disney Junior fans, [who isn't?] you'll want to plan some time at Disney's Hollywood Studios where they're sure to enjoy Disney Junior - Live On Stage!

    I'm about out of room for my answer, but please write back in if we can help with more questions!

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
