    I am interested in planning a Disney trip soon for my family. I have no idea where to start. I would prefer to spend no more than 4000 if possible. We would like to stay for a week. I will have a 10 and 7 year old and my husband. Help please

    Not to worry, Sara, you've come to the right place for help! I'm happy to give you some tips as you start your planning process.

    The good news is that I ran a quick search and found that, indeed, your family of four could purchase a vacation package to include a value resort stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort and theme park tickets for a total price that is under your stated budget. Exact package prices will vary, depending upon when you book, your travel dates and ticket options. Budget-minded travelers typically maximize savings by opting for a resort in the value category and traveling during less busy times of the year. You'll also want to be sure to check for any special offers that might help you save on your vacation. 

    Once you determine which resort is perfect for your budget and family preferences, you should start thinking about dining options. One way to help keep food costs in check is by enjoying a quick breakfast in your resort room before heading out to the parks for a day of fun. While counter service or fast casual restaurant options are among the most budget-friendly eateries at Walt Disney World, you might also want to consider one or two special meals at a fun location, like the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    Hopefully, those personalized tips will get you going in the right direction, Sara. But my planDisney panelist friends and I also have put together some additional vacation planning tools that might be helpful, too! 

    Sara, it is always a pleasure to help a fellow Alabamian discover just how magical a Disney vacation can be. Please don't hesitate to follow up if we can offer personalized recommendations on anything from restaurants to recreation opportunities. Happy planning!
