    Hello! I am overwhelmed with planning an itinerary for our first trip in Feb. I booked our dinner reservations (dining plan). How hard is it to get between parks? I was limited on choices, I guess I didn't know I had to book so early. Thanks.

    Sara, it can be definitely be overwhelming, but that's what we are here for!  First off, I'd like to recommend that you check in with your resort concierge when you arrive to see if there are any cancellations for meals you may not have been able to book.  I've had good luck doing that in the past.

    As for transportation between the parks, I'm assuming you will not have your own car?  If not, you can take the Disney transportation system from one park to another.  While the Magic Kingdom and Epcot are connected by monorail (with a connection required at the Ticket and Transportation Center), the other parks are connected by bus service.  I'd recommend planning at least one hour for transportation on buses, although in my experience, it doesn't usually take that long.

    Going from resort to resort can be a bit trickier -- in most cases you will have to go to a park and transfer to resort specific transportation from there.

    Good luck!  I hope that you are able to get reservations at all of the places you'd like to visit!
