    Hi Annette!

         Yes, I have been accused of having a little enthusiasm about all things Disney and I take it as an awesome complement!  You are going to love staying at one of the All Star Value Resorts!  Planning for your Walt Disney World vacation can seem very daunting especially if you are getting the Disney Dining Plan too!  My advice to you as you begin planning your vacation is to decide what Park that you will be going to on what particular day.  I typically look at the calendar for each Park to see when the Extra Magic Hours are for each Park during the dates of my vacation.  I use the Extra Magic Hours to maximize my time in each Park.  Then I pick a Park for each day of my Walt Disney World vacation.  I do research on the restaurants in each Park or Resort and decide which ones that I want to eat at.  Then I make Advanced Dining Reservations for the Table Service Meals that I want to dine at each day.  When I have that nailed down, I start listing what rides, shows, and attractions that I want to see in each Park to start developing a tentative Park schedule for each Park (I prioritize and put the most popular rides on my list to experience first each day).  Don't forget that as you continue planning your Walt Disney World vacation you can always ask us Moms more detailed and specific questions at!

    I hope that you make magical memories on your Walt Disney World vacation!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
