    Hi Lise! 

    Congratulations on your magical trip to Walt Disney World!

    I have a few tips that will help you plan this once in a lifetime trip. 

    I highly recommend the Art of Animation Resort! This is a value resort and its brand new. They have the largest pool in all of Walt Disney World resorts. Their food court is great and the rooms are gorgeously themed. 

    Since you'll be there for five days, you will be able to visit each of the four parks: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Have your kids make a top five list for each day and plan your trip around those items. This will ensure you hit up what each person wants to do, while still keeping your list tight.

    make at least one Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) for a character dining meal. I recommend Cinderella's Royal Table and Chef Mickey.

    The best mode of transportation is the Disney buses, which you can use if you stay at a Walt Disney World Resort.

    Please let me know if I can help you with anything else to help you plan a magical vacation.
