    Hi there, this will be our first visit for our entire family NO ONE has ever been. Kids are and will be 4&2... i have ordered the park maps, and the dvd. Any tips or books I must read? We know it will be hot & busy what to avoid? thank for any &

    Hi Elizabeth,

    As you begin to plan the details of your trip, there are several websites that are great to start with:  huge amount of information, updates, & photos; it also has a weekly newsletter  extensive information on dining/food at Disney, including eBooks available             for purchase  huge help with itinerary planning & ways to make the most of your days; it does           have a small fee, however

    As for books, I have several favorites (among many):  The Unofficial Guide Walt Disney World by Bob Sehlinger & Len Testa (they are behind the TouringPlans website); PassPorter's Walt Disney World by Jennifer Marx, Dave Marx, and Allison C. Marx; & The Complete Walt Disney World by Julie and Mike Neal.

    I'd start your planning by looking over the books & websites, perhaps studying dining first since you'll be able to make reservations when you are 180 days away from your trip (if you are a Disney resort guest, you can make 10 days of reservations at that point) and as you find more questions, please don't hesitate to let us know.  We love helping guests, and you can send us question after question after question!  ---Kara
