    Planning a family trip to DW for February. Last time we went was abt 9yrs ago and I only had one 7yr old. I will now be with 3 boys (8yr, 7yr & 5yr) and feeling overwhelmed. Any advise to help me make this a happy vacation experience?

    Thanks for visiting the Mom's Panel, Tracy! Planning a Walt Disney World Vacation can be a little overwhelming and we would love to help alleviate any stress with your vacation planning! I also have three boys so I totally understand wanting to plan a vacation in which it is a happy experience for everyone! The first thing you will want to do is decide where you want to stay.Disney's Art of Animation Resort is Disney's newest Value Resort, which offers family suites accommodating up to six guests. I think your boys would love the Cars Family Suites themed after the movie Cars.You will also want to decide whether you would prefer to purchase a Magic Your Way Package or purchase your room accommodations and tickets separately. With the Magic Your Way Package, you can also add the Disney Dining Plan, which I find to be a great value in particular for children.Follow the link I have provided to learn more about the different options that are available with the Magic Your Way Packages. Although rates are not available for 2013 at this time, you can always call Disney Reservations at (407) W-DISNEY to learn more about the different package options so that when the rates are released you will have some of your questions already answered. Guests may begin making Advanced Dining Reservations for table service restaurants 180 days in advance. I highly recommend booking your Advanced Dining Reservations when your booking window opens up by calling (407) WDW-DINE or by going online here. I like to visit the unofficial website to view the Disney Restaurant menus. This website also features photo galleries for all of the Disney Resorts. I am out of room, but please feel free to write back with additional questions you may have! Best wishes for a Magical 2013 Trip, Tracy!
    Happy Planning,
