    Hi! This will be our first trip to Disney with our 4 year old twins. I'm a little overwhelmed with all the options! We will be staying for 4 days. Any suggestions on where to stay/eat/play? Thanks!

    Hi Bambi,

    I know how overwhelming vacation planning can be, especially when you are traveling with small children.  Never fear! That's why the Moms Panel was founded.  We'd be happy to walk you through every step of the process. 

    After you determine your dates of travel, select your Disney resort hotel.  If it is within your budget, stay at a resort near the Magic Kingdom.  My favorite is Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  This resort has a great rustic theme and it is only a 4-minute bus ride to the Magic Kingdom.  Some prefer Disney's Contemporary Resort because you can actually walk (or take the monorail) to the Magic Kingdom.  That's pretty handy when you're pushing a stroller or two.  Once you choose a resort, call (407) W-DISNEY or a trusted travel agent to book your hotel. 

    I highly recommend that you opt for one of the Disney Dining Plans.  I have found the basic Disney Dining Plan (with one table service credit, one quick service credit, and one snack credit per day, per person) to be a very cost-effective and easy way to feed a family while vacationing at Walt Disney World.  Make reservations for at least one character dining experience during your stay.  Your kids are at the perfect age to enjoy dining at the Crystal Palace, Chef Mickey's, or Hollywood & Vine.  Whichever of these restaurants you choose, call (407) WDW-DINE to make your advance dining reservation.

    Try to spend one day at each of Disney's four main theme parks.  Let us know if you need suggestions for age-appropriate attractions for your twins.
