    Plan to visit Disney in 2014. This will include my parents, siblings, spouses and children. Approx. 20-25 in our party, ages 3-65. Traveling from IL. This is our 1st visit, any planning tips & cost saving advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank You!

    Hello, Bobbie!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    Wow!  You certainly do have a large group and I am quite certain the memories are going to be plentiful and most MAGICAL!  How thrilling that you will all be enjoying Walt Disney World for the first time together.  It does not get any better than this, so we had better get started.  

    I would highly recommend contacting an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner who specializes in Disney vacations.  He or she will be able to offer group discounts which will help with the cost of your vacation. At this time, you will also be able to discuss ticket pricing for your length of stay.  

    Once you have secured your rooms, I highly recommend the DISNEY DINING PLAN for your large group. This is the best way to keep your food budget in check and there are so many MAGICAL dining experiences that you can all enjoy.  Trust me, you will save.  When you are 180 days out from the start of your vacation, I recommend calling (407)WDW-DINE and allowing a Cast Member to help you with dining reservations.  I am quite sure you will want to enjoy many dining experiences together and the folks here at Disney know how to work their MAGIC.  

    Well, this is a start.  Once you have taken care of these first steps, please come back and visit with me again for more tips and advice as my space is limited.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
