    HI Guys, Just wondering if you have any specific advice for a couple from AUS who have never been to Disney or the US for that matter?

    First of all we would LOVE to have you come visit!  A few years ago I had the pleasure of visiting your beautiful country!

    Walt Disney World in Florida is an incredible vacation destination for us and for many around the world.  Encompassing four individual parks, a shopping area, and multiple recreation facilities it is truly a place where everyone can find something they enjoy.

    My best advice for you is to plan for at least a five day visit to Disney if  possible.  That gives you one day in each park and then a day to enjoy the recreation or return to a favorite park. Staying longer is even better if you have the time.  Pick your dates and try to avoid American holidays (especially Christmas, New Years, Thanksgiving, and Easter) and the summer months of June, July, and August. The parks will be most crowded when children are off from school. Check for any special offers through Disney or other travel places and secure a room reservation.  Central reservation number is 407-934-7639.  I strongly recommend staying in a Disney property and you can compare resort rates and amenities and choose the one that fits your needs. They are all fabulous and unique!

    At this point you are ready to plan your stay deciding what park to do on what day and coordinate the dining and make those reservations. I encourage you to check back with us when you are doing this as I am sure you will have more questions and we would love to help you through the whole process!

    I hope we will be welcoming you soon to the U.S.!
