    Hi, my name is Kristen and we are planning our very first Disney World trip hoping for Spring 2020 and I have no idea where to start. Please help 

    Hi, there!

     Kristen, I am just thrilled to hear you're planning your family's very first Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's my pleasure to help you plan a magical stay!

     Your first step is to book a Disney Resort Hotel Package. In the booking process, you'll select a Disney Resort hotel and ticket package that suits your family's unique needs, interests, and budget. You can even add flexibility and convenience to your vacation by adding a dining plan to your Disney Resort Hotel Package!

     Need a few hotel recommendations? At the Value level, I suggest Disney's Pop Century Resort. In the Moderate category, my family most loves Disney's Caribbean Beach ResortDisney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge are my favorite Deluxe options

     When choosing theme park tickets, I suggest selecting at least a 4-day package which will allow you to visit each of the four theme parks. My family prefers a 5-day ticket package because we like to visit Magic Kingdom Park on the first and last days of our vacation, with visits to the other three theme parks in-between!

     Once you have your Disney Resort Hotel Package booked, you'll want to link your reservation to My Disney Experience. This vacation planning tool is going to make your vacation planning process a breeze! With My Disney Experience you can manage your hotel reservation, book dining experiences, make FastPass+ selections, and create daily itineraries! Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app for planning on-the-go. It really IS magic at your fingertips!

     Did you know free planning videos are available online? I found these to be super helpful when I was planning my family's first Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kristen. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
