    I am interested in planning a trip to Disney the week of June 5-12, 2010. It seems a bit overwhelming to me and I have no idea where to start. Can a Disney expert please help me.

    Hi Vanessa!

    I can understand how overwhelming it can seem when you're beginning to plan a trip! You've already made one of the toughest decisions - when to go, so now you'll just need to work on the details!

    First, you should work out a budget for your vacation. Once you figure out what you'd like to spend that will help you narrow down which resort to choose. When choosing a resort, think about how much time you plan to spend there versus the theme parks and other activities. Sometimes it doesn't make sense to pay a lot of extra money for your hotel if you plan to only be there to sleep and get ready for your day. If you think you will spend time relaxing by the pool and enjoying other amenities, you may want to invest a little extra for a moderate or deluxe resort.

    When park hours for June are released (start looking for them at the beginning of December), you can plan which park you will visit on each day. Once you know where you'll be spending your time, you can plan your meals according to what park or resort you'll be closest to on each day. When you have a good idea of your basic plan, you can use that information to decide if you want park hopping on your tickets or want to add a dining plan to your package.

    So, to get started browse through all the resort options available, and take it from there! You may also want to order a free planning DVD to get more ideas and guidance.

    I hope this helps you get started! Please ask us any further questions you may have, and have fun planning!
