    Wow Theresa!

    That is a whole lot to plan! I will take a first stab, but please e-mail me any follow-up questions at my bio page. I am glad to fill in any details that you need beyond what I can put in this answer.

    Here are my suggestions;

    • Since it is your first trip, I would definitely start at the Magic Kingdom.
    • Don't think you are going to see "everything" in this one day. Not going to happen. Instead list out the "Must Do!" items for your family, and focus on getting to as many of those as you can.
    • Regarding transportation, don't move your car every time you change parks. Use Disney transportation, to move from park to park.
      • Make life easier by parking at the theme park where you plan to end your day, even if you have to bus to your first park of the day.  
    • Use each park's "tip board" as a place to meet if separated. There is one in every park and are listed on the park maps.
    • Don't try all four parks in one day. You will waste time traveling instead of having fun.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
