    Hi Its my first time planning a WDW trip with my 2 kids which will be 2& 5 in november. We have the dining service and have no idea where to begin planning the "daily venues" to cover the major attractions for my kids age group with the diffe

    Hi Jessica!

    Planning your first trip is so exciting, but I can understand how you might feel overwhelmed at the same time.  Well, you have come to the right place!

    First - put your worries away. There are Guests who are planners and Guests who are not.  The beauty of a vacation at Walt Disney World is that you can plan as little or as much as you would like.  Since you have young children, you probably want to have a "framework" of a daily plan but also have quite a bit of flexibility.  In your case I recommend going to touringplans.com and viewing their free listing of touring plans.  There is also an option to pay a small fee to view more plans, an extended crowd prediction calendar, and other general tips.  Another site that I find helpful for first time Guests is AllEars.Net.  This site is good for giving detailed descriptions of the different Walt Disney World theme parks, restaurants and individual attractions. 

    I also highly recommend exploring our Disney Parks Moms Panel site to view questions and answers to topics that you would like to know more about.  By using the left navigation pane you can view questions and answers to the topics such as Planning and Budgeting, Theme Parks, or Dining.  Another way to navigate our site is to use the search feature.  You can find a wealth of opinions about any Disney subject right here.

    Finally, ask more questions right here!  I have given you a "starting point" for making touring plans/daily venues and dining selections that will be age appropriate for your children, but you are likely to have more questions as you make your preparations.  Please just come back to our site and ask your question and we would be honored to help you make your vacation more magical.  Happy planning!
