    We are planning our first family vacation and our first time to Walt Disney world I'll be traveling with a 12, 10, 6 and 1 yr old. How do I start planning? What do I need? Can I bring my own stroller especially on the plane?

    Hello Jenny and thank you for bringing such a great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I can almost imagine how super exited you all must be about planning towards your 1st ever family trip to Walt Disney World Resort and with all those darling Mouseketeers it's sure to be very magical indeed!
    My 1st piece of advice is for you to create a My Disney Experience account; this amazingly clever gizmo holds all your Disney vacation information in one easily accessible spot! 
    Secondly, spend a little time researching and choosing your Disney Resort hotel and selecting which Disney Theme Park Tickets best suit the needs of your family and don't forget once you've made your Disney booking to customise your families MagicBands!  
    Another top tip is at 180 days out from your planned visit to Walt Disney World Resort to begin making those all important Advanced Dining Reservations for your favourite Disney restaurants.  
    Lastly, as a Guest staying in a Walt Disney World owned and run Resort remember to take advantage of making FastPass+ selections up to 60 days before arrival. 
    If I can help sprinkle any extra pixie dust onto your plans to visit to Walt Disney World Resort for the very 1st time please pop back to ask me another question. 
    Have a great Disney day.
