    i need help with planning a vacation around March 12-15, 2012. This will be our first time party of 5.

    Hi Jammeka - I'd need more details to really provide you with a personalized answer, so please feel free to write back to me more information on the ages of your children and what types of things you like to do.

    As a general overview though, I'd suggest that you book your trip as soon as possible since it's coming up quickly.  I'm not sure if you will fly or drive, but if you are flying, you'll want to get your plane tickets asap.  In addition, I'd suggest that you make your dining reservations now.  Most of the popular dining spots book up well in advance, so you should do that as soon as possible.  You should also decide what type of tickets you'll purchase.  Since you need valid park admission to dine at a theme park, you'll either have to plan to already be in that park, or have the park hopper option on your tickets.  You can book your own vacation reservation online - which is something I like to do because I can play around with all of the options to understand how each change affects the price of my vacation. 

    Finally, because you have a party of five, your room options are somewhat limited if you are all going to stay in the same room.  The suites at All Star Music are spacious enough for a family of five, so that's a good option if you'd like to stick with a value resort.

    I hope that helps!
