    Hi i am just looking for a little advice my Daughter knows exactly what she is doing she has planed and explained our trip but i wan to be a good mom and understand what is going on from the moms side please help we are going to Walt Disney World

    Hi Chloe. Your question makes me so happy. For my daughter's 1st trip to Walt Disney World Resort, we invited my parents and my in-laws. We planned EVERYTHING! Prior to the trip, we had a meeting with handouts, a projector, etc. I was fanatical about making sure everything was perfect! (Clearly, I was a new mom.) Even though we covered a lot of information in the notebook (yes...notebook) we provided, both sets of parents were a bit lost and completely overwhelmed. Our vacation was nothing less than magical but thinking back, it was the spontaneous moments that brought us the most joy.

    I love that you want more information! Learning more about your vacation will be a gift to your daughter and will help you navigate through your vacation with more knowledge. The Power of Magic page is a great resource! It provides in-depth planning information on topics including Special Offers, the 4 Theme Parks, 2 Water Parks and Disney Springs and Planning Tools, including information on My Disney Experience. On top of the great information, there is also a link to a vacation planning video that highlights some of the must do attractions and gives great tips. You fill out a quick form and the video will play immediately on your computer and will then give you options to view more videos as well.

    I would also suggest that you get familiar with your My Disney Experience account and mobile app. On it, you can see plans, make dining reservations and FastPass+ selections, see wait times and so much more. Understanding My Disney Experience will help you as you enjoy each day's journey.

    There are so many topics to cover and I would love to help you understand each one! Please take a look at the videos and planning pages and let me know if I can help answer any other questions. I'm so excited for you and I know you are going to have a magical vacation!
