    I'm planning my family's first vacation to WDW, There are 3 adults and 2 kids ages 17 & 10. What would be the cheapest way to go?

    Hello, Megan!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    I love hearing from guests who are planning their first ever Walt Disney World vacation!  I know there is so much information out there that it can be a bit overwhelming.  However, the Moms Panel is here for you.
    A WDW Resort vacation package can be very budget friendly.  You will want to begin by checking the SPECIAL OFFERS page.   Many times they will offer free dining or room discount rates.  Even if you book your reservation and a deal comes out at a later date, they may be able to apply the savings to your reservation.  

    Select a Value Resort for your stay. They are simply MAGICAL and many times are cheaper than resorts located outside the Walt Disney World Resort area.  There are also many BENEFITS that you can take advantage of when staying at a WDW Resort.
    In order to keep your food budget in check, I recommend the DISNEY DINING PLAN.  You will be amazed at how much guests will pay daily for meals.  There are different DDP to choose from and I am sure you will find one that fits your budget.  

    With this being your first visit, I recommend tickets without the Park Hopper option.  Use your time to fully enjoy a park without wasting time traveling from park to park.  

    The good news is that all of these items can be bundled together with a MAGIC YOUR WAY PACKAGE PLUS DINING.  A Cast Member will be happy to put your package together by calling (407)939-7675.
