    Hi Christian!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    Besides the main Walt Disney World website, I also recommend visiting the independent website  That's the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt DIsney World".  They are famous in the Disney fan community for producing a crowd calendar.  The crowd calendar predicts the crowd levels in the various parks on various days.  The team at Touring Plans makes recommendations on which parks to visit on which days and which parks to avoid.  That should help you plan your basic itinerary for your trip!  The recommendations at Touring Plans are based on a lot of math and years of data collection.  As an engineer, I'm a huge fan of their work!

    Once you have your basic itinerary, you should make some Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs).  ADRs are really required if you want to enjoy some of the amazing Table Service restaurants at Walt Disney World.  ADRs can be made up to 180 days in advance either online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.  Don't worry, you still have time to make ADRs for some really good restaurants!

    I hope this helps!  Write back with some more questions!
