    I am planning my first WDW vacation for my family. My husband and I will be bringing our 4 year old daughter and 9 year old son. I have no idea where to begin except where we are staying. We will be staying at WDW Dolphin hotel. Where do I begin?

    Hi Farrah! 

    First, relax, we, here at the Moms Panel are here to help you. 

    Ask each family member what their top five "must sees" are and Plan your days based on that. 

    With your kids ages, I highly recommend visiting Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios replace to get in the things they will love the most. 

    You will also want to make all of your dining reservations in advance by calling 407-WDW-DINE. I recommend Chef Mickeys, Ohana and Crystal Palace.

    Explore the Disney site to see what experiences you would like to have outside the parks as well. Pirates and Pals Fireworks Cruise is a lot of fun! 

    You can also pre purchase your PhotoPass CD to ensure lasting memories of your special trip.
