    Hello, this is my first trip being planned to Disney. It will be me and my 7 year old son. Is there anyone who can walk me through the whole process and help me book/plan my trip?

    Welcome to planDisney, Stephen! 

    Your son is at the perfect age to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth. Please let me offer a few recommendations to ensure the most magical visit for both of you. 

    First up, I suggest creating a budget that works for you! Once you have that number in mind, I recommend contacting a trusted Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. These travel agents specialize in planning trips to Walt Disney World. You can look out for the 'Authorized Disney Vacation Planner' typically proudly displayed on their website after an internet search. They can help you select the best option for you and your son for both Disney Resort hotels and Tickets. Many will even help make your Advanced Dining Reservations! You should never have to pay more for this service, so it's a win-win situation!

    There are plenty of online resources available to help you feel confident in your choices. You should definitely check out the planDisney website - they have tons of cool videos showcasing many aspects of Walt Disney World, and Pocket Guides to help you plan your stay. 

    My similarly aged son's top picks from our recent trip include Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Galaxy's Edge in Disney Hollywood Studios. He's a self-professed padawan! Toy Story Mania, again at Disney's Hollywood Studios, gets the competitive juices flowing in our family. His final top-three pick was TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom Park. Regardless of the rides you experience, I know you and your son will enjoy making many magical memories together. 

    I hope this information helps today, Stephen. If there is anything else I can help with, I will be right here at planDisney. Have the best time!
