    My DH and I are planning our first trip to Disney in March 2010 for Spring Break with our DS 9 and DD 2. We have a modest budget and I'm overwhelmed as where to start planning since Disney has not released any 2010 package information. Where do I start?


    Step 1: Don't let the planning intimidate you. Trust me that it will be easier than expected!

    Step 2: While waiting for the 2010 information to be published, start with some fun planning steps;
    • Nail down your exact travel dates.
    • Figure out your top 3/4 resort choices. For ballpark pricing, pick a resort and then select Room Types & Pricing, and then select the Peak Season from the drop-down menu on the upper right.
    • Think about your dining (i.e. how many meals at table service vs. counter service restaurants), and look at the information on the Disney Dining Plans. These are a great cost saver, and the question is not "Do I get one?" but instead "Which one should I get?". 
    Step 3: Get a guidebook. While I won't recommend one over another, get something with reviews of resorts, attractions, and restaurants. This can help you both plan, and get excited for the trip.

    That should get you started. Don't be shy about sending me more questions to help you along the way. That is why I am here. We will do this step by step together!

    Hope to hear from you soon!
