    Hello, first trip for us: Planning is a bit overwhelming. What schedule, events, dining experiences, specific things to do, etc., would you suggest: my husband and I, 80 year old grandma, 5 year old son and 4 year old daughter. 5 day stay.

    Greetings, Annarella, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for this excellent question regarding planning for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    We're here to help, Annarella, rest assured, so you can begin your magical planning with ease. Gather your precious family for a cozy evening familiarizing yourselves with all that awaits by watching the free Disney Parks Vacation Planning Video in preparation for your visit.

    May I recommend you explore a Magic Your Way Vacation Package which will include your Disney Resort hotel, Theme Park Tickets, and the option to select one of many Disney Dining Plan packages. This way, you'll be afforded all the Disney Resort hotel Guest amenities to make your visit convenient, comfortable and surrounded by the Disney magic all day long.

    Then, take a look at Disney's online resource for Grandparents at Walt Disney World Resort which offers information, tips and advice to optimize visiting with your loved ones. As well, the online resource also offers the helpful Planning for Kids which is loaded with suitable attractions, rides, experiences and even a Preschool Parents' Guide which you can download and bring with you as a reference during your visit.

    I look forward to sharing lots of exciting information with you Annarella, see you real soon!
