    Hi: We are going to Disney middle of December with our 6 yr old son. It will be our first trip for ALL of us. We are super excited but I am also overwhelmed with all there is there. Can someone please send me some tips or schedule? Thanks for any help

    Hi there Daniel and thanks so much for the question! I know first hand that planning the perfect Disney vacation can be a bit overwhelming, so please know that you can come back here and ask me any questions that may arise during the process!  That's why I'm here!

    With four resorts, 2 water parks, an amazing entertainment and shopping district, dozens of resort hotels and tons of tasty restaurants, Disney World is the ultimate vacation destination for families!  That being said, when considering a vacation, it's very common to feel a bit overwhelmed because guests want to experience everything there is to offer!  The best place to start is right on the official Disney World web site. Here you will be able to browse the many offerings at the resort, including attractions and dining options for each theme park.  You can even order a FREE planning DVD which will highlight everything DIsney World has to offer. Here are my tips for planning your Disney vacation:

    1) Make an outline calendar of your days.  Decide which park you plan to visit on each day and begin penciling in attractions that you and your son will enjoy. is a great source of information and will help you research the attractions and offerings in each park.  It's also a good idea to purchase a guide book such as Birnbaum's Guide to Walt Disney World. 2) Browse the Dining options online or in your guidebook, and begin making dining reservations based upon your park location on each day!  Pencil these into your calendar as well!

    Now that the ball is rolling, I encourage you to come back and ask me any questions you may have.  Once I have more specifics, I'll be able to help you tailor the plans to your individual needs!

    Best Wishes, Amanda F.
