    Husband and I are celebrating our first anniversary next summer. Unfortunately, there's so much to see and do that planning (especially just for the two of us) seems impossible. Any helpful information to dumb it down?

    No "dumbing it down," Teniya, but maybe I can offer some tips on navigating your way through the trip planning phase.

    1. Set a budget and stick with it.  Your budget will likely be a deciding factor as you plan some of the details of your vacation.
    2. Narrow down your time frame.  When planning your visit you might also consider the availability of special events.
    3. Decide on a resort.  Reference your budget when deciding between a value, moderate, or deluxe property.  
    4. Establish an itinerary.  Consider how much time you'd like to spend in each park and plan out a schedule for where you'll be each day.
    5. Make meal reservations.  Schedule meals based on which park or area of the resort you'll be on any given day.
    6. Consider extras.  Things like character meals or tours or spa experiences or water sports add a personal touch to your trip that make it especially memorable.
    7. Last but not least, relax and enjoy the trip you planned!

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
