    I'm a 34 year old mom from Suffolk, VA. I would like to take my 4 kids on an exciting adventure to Walt Disney World. How can you help me plan a trip August 2012. And I would also like to know if there are any kind of payment plans you can assist me with.

    Hello neighbor!

    A Walt Disney World vacation is definitely an exciting adventure!  You and your children are in for the trip of a lifetime, that's for sure!  I will suggest visiting towards the end of August, when the summer crowds begin to thin out.

    The first thing you'll want to do is decide where you'll want to stay and for how many days. You'll want to click over and check out the options for parties of five or more.

    Once you choose your hotel, start thinking about the types of tickets you'll want.  Do you want tickets for every day of your stay? Water park tickets? I'm not sure what ages your children are, but we always make sure we have at least one non-park day to relax and hang out by the pool.

    Then consider the Disney Dining Plan (click the link to see more info).  If you'll want to do character meals or other sit-down meals, you'll need to start thinking about those and making reservations 180-days prior to your arrival.  You can do this online or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.

    I always prefer to book our vacations by calling 407-939-7675. The Reservations Cast Member can walk you through all of the package options and get your reservation booked and your deposit paid.  You are most certainly able to make payments on your vacation.  It's on your own schedule, but packages do need to be paid in full 45 days prior to arrival.

    I'm running short on room, but I'd love to continue to help you plan your magical vacation.  Please come back and ask me anything else about planning your trip!
