    I would like to go on a Disney vacation but I have no idea where to start. There is so much information on the website. I have 5 people and would like to stay inside the park. Everything is for 4 people. This is my first time and very overwheleming.

    While the majority of accommodations are meant for a family of four, Gena, you have some options for your family of five.  THIS LINK will take you to a page devoted solely to resort accommodations for parties of five or more.  Of those mentioned, my personal favorite would be the Fort Wilderness cabins.  I love the rustic charm and plentiful recreational opportunities available there.  Once you decide upon a resort, you should look into ticket options and decide whether you want to purchase the park hopper option, and other upgrades like the water park fun and more option.  With that decision nailed down, you might want to consider where to eat.  Disney has a vast array of fun restaurants, many of which book up early.  It's best to make your dining reservations 180 days out or as close to that as possible. 

    Above all, relax.  The Moms Panel is here to help with every planning step of the way.  Once you have some specific questions, ask away and we'll gladly offer our expertise!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
