    Going to Florida 12/26 - 12/30 and will spend approx 2 days at WDW - 2 boys, 5 and 8. I was told I need to make reservations for stuff ASAP, but I find the website and even the Q&As overwhelming. Where do I start? HELP!!!

    Hi Marcie:

    There's still time to prepare.  Don't worry.  But I would concentrate on securing dining reservations first and as soon as possible as favorite restaurants tend to book very quickly.  Check out this list of Disney Restaurants that can be filtered very easily by cuisine, experience, and location.  As soon as you identify some choices that look appealing, make reservations. I'm not sure if you plan to spend those two days staying at Walt Disney World property, but if so, you should make reservations at a Resort.  You can then check out this list of tours and special experiences if you want a planned activity during your stay.  But with only two days at Walt Disney World, you'll likely just want to spend time in the Parks.  If you want Park Tickets, you can secure them in advance or at the Parks. 

    If you are able to catch your breath after that, take some time perusing Disney's In-Depth Planning page for first time visitors.  So to recap: (1) dining first (2) then room (if necessary) (3) then take a breath (4) then miscellaneous planning.
