    Hi. First time in Disney and looking to plan a vacation for my family . 2 adults and two kids aged 7 and 8 . We are looking to travel in feb of next year for my sons birthday . We also want to stay at a value resort. Not sure where to even start tho

    Hiya Elizabeth, Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with your excellent question. I'm thrilled to assist you! How exciting that you're planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort. You are sure to make awesome memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    I always plan our family vacations with cost in mind. My preference to determine cost is using the Build Your Vacation tool at the top of the Walt Disney World Resort homepage. There you are able to enter your vacation dates, total number of adults and children in your party and you can search all resorts or just one if you have a favorite. You are then able to see the cost per night and can select the package option. The page will then populate the total cost of resort and tickets. Before checking out, you'll be able to select a base ticket or the park hopper option!

    Another great option is calling Disney Resort Hotel Reservations and speaking directly with a Cast Member and they'll be able to go over all your details and get you a final cost.

    There are a few other things I always keep in mind when planning my family's Walt Disney World Resort vacation; time of year, length of stay, and most importantly which resort we will be staying. The Value Resort Hotels are more budget friendly than the Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels so I tend to start there. And we can't forget our Moderate Resorts tucked right in the middle! 

    Now for the birthday boy! Birthday Celebrations are truly magical at Walt Disney World Resort! There are many ways that you can celebrate his birthday during your visit to Walt Disney World Resort. My first suggestion is to stop by any Guest Relations or Front Desk location to pick up a complimentary “Happy Birthday” button that he can wear on his special day!

    Elizabeth I hope you find this information helpful. Thank you again for visiting planDisney! Have a Magical Day!
