    I am looking to take my children to Disney for the first time. I have a 5 yr old daughter and a 8 yr old son. This may be a very broad question, but where would you suggest I start in trying to plan a trip like this? THanks..

    Hi Mark!

    Making the decision to plan a vacation to The Happiest Place On Earth is the first great step to take. Your kids are at a fantastic age to really get the most out of a Walt Disney World holiday. Your next 'big' decision would be to decide on the time of year you'd like to visit and where you'd like to stay.

    Visit the Walt Disney World website to view the different resort hotel and package options, as well as the Special Offers to see what great discounts you may be able to receive depending upon your preferred travel time. Your best option is a Magic Your Way Vacation package including your Disney Resort stay, park tickets & dining plan. Disney's Magical Express will whisk you from Orlando airport directly to your resort, and even deliver your checked luggage right to your room. I highly recommend that you consider the Disney Dining Plan for your vacation.

    In considering Resorts, there are so many options depending upon your budget & 'wish list.' If you don't want to spend a bundle, consider the brand new Art of Animation Resort or Pop Century Resort at the Value level. At the Moderate level, my number one pick is Port Orleans French Quarter Resort. Finally, if a Deluxe Resort suits your taste & budget, and you'd like to be close to all the action with on-site, table-service dining and fantastic amenities, my number one 'family' geared picks include Beach Club Resort or my #1 favourite, Disney's Polynesian Resort.

    Thanks for visiting Mark! I look forward to hearing from you again when you're ready to take the next steps in the planning of your Magical vacation, or with more questions before you begin making decisions!
