    I'm a single mom with my 4 year old son Any suggestions on airport transfers, dining plans and ways to save money to make this easy for me so I'm not stressing out? Is Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom the must see places for him?


    With airport transfers the answer is simple. Disney resort guests use the free Magical Express service which provides round trip transportation between the airport and the resorts. A separate but related service, also free, even handles your bags for you!

    For dining, you have to go with the Disney Dining plans. Also an exclusive for people staying at a Disney resort, these plans not only save you money, but they help you in budgeting your spending, and take a big headache off your shoulders.

    As to where to stay, obviously I lean towards Disney resorts. First establish a budget. That will help you decide what level of resort is right for you (Value, Moderate, or Deluxe). After that you can pick which theme seems to be the most fun for you.

    With your son I would try to hit all four parks, but you are right in assuming that the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom are "Must Do!" parks.

    I am glad to handle your follow-up questions! Just go to my bio page to ask, and make sure to break the questions into separate requests, so I can answer them one-by-one with some detail.

    Have a magical vacation!
