    I am a mother of 3. My son is 13and my 2 daughters are 8 and 3. How do I plan a trip that will be enjoyable for all three? This will be our first Disney vacation, I feel lost!

    Oh don't feel lost! We are here to help you along your planning process! I can't answer everything in this space so let me get you started.

    Choose the date that you will be coming and check for all Disney specials or airline packages that might be running for that time. Compare the Disney resorts and choose one that fits your needs and your budget.

    Now it is time for the fun planning...what park on what day and where to dine!  I would suggest you purchase a good guidebook and I recommend the Complete Idiots Guide to Walt Disney World by Doug Ingersoll or Birnbaum Guides, Walt Disney World.  Both can be found at any major bookstore chain or on line through  Talk to your children about each park and what they think they might like to see and do and make a list.  Pick one park a day...trying to do more then one is very exhausting!  Make a plan and choose some dining so you are able to make dining reservations ahead (90 days). 407-939-3463

    Make sure you schedule some down time so the children can enjoy the resort pools and other recreation that is available.  Once you have your plan set I know you will have more questions and please feel free to check back with the question is too small or too big!
