    I need suggestions and advice for two mid 50 adults going to Disney world for the first time.

    Howdy Suzanne!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Your first visit to Neverland is going to be so exciting!  I am glad to hEAR that you are soaring off to “The Most Magical Place on Earth” in just a few weeks!  Oh boy!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    Oh my, oh my!  I have lots of ideas for you to enjoy during your visit to Neverland, but at the top of my list is “Stay in the Magic!”  If you are not staying at a Disney Resort Collection hotel, I recommend booking your stay as soon as possible!  When you stay at a Disney Resort Collection hotel, you can relax and let Disney transport you from your resort hotel to the theme parks!  Staying at a Disney Resort Collection hotel takes all the stress away!  The Cast Members are fantastic, the resort hotels are perfectly themed, and everything from food, drinks, merchandise, and so much more are steps away from your room!

    Since you will be visiting during the middle of January, you will be able to enjoy the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts!  This festival will take you on an immersive experience through the culinary, performance, and visual arts!  I love the POP-INTO art!  Would you love to hop into a masterpiece?  At this fabulous festival, you can!  All of the POP-INTO art makes for the best photo ops!

    If you have not booked your advanced dining reservations 60-days before your check-in date, then you still have time!  I love to experience a few of the one-of-a-kind dining experiences throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!  The Disney Parks Blog has just announced two dining experiences returning to the Walt Disney World Resort next month!  Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White will be open during your visit!  My family and I also love to enjoy an evening dinner at Boatwright’s Dining Hall on the weekend so that we can enjoy an incredible meal and see Yehaa Bob sing and play the piano at River Roost Lounge!  Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more announcements in the days to come!

    If you have not added Memory Maker to your vacation, you still have time!  With Memory Maker, you will be able to capture an unlimited amount of photos at one great price!  I love all the fun-filled mini photo sessions with the Disney PhotoPass Photographers!  Make sure to ask the photographers if they offer Magic Shots!  With Magic Shots, you never know who or what might pop into your photo!

    Oh, Gawrsh!  The Walt Disney World Resort is filled with fun for everyone!  I hope you are ready to “Make Memories to Last a Lifetime” during your visit!  If you have any more planning questions, please come back to planDisney!

    We are looking forward to helping you again, Suzanne!

    See Ya Real Soon,
