    I am planning our 1st trip to WDW in Feb. It will be my hus., myself, an adult friend, our children- 2 boys - 8, 6 & a 4 month old girl. I was looking at a villa at Wildreness. Do you have any suggestions for your fav. places to stay. Also things to do

    Hi, Donna,   I am so excited for you to be planning your first Disney vacation!    With your size party, the Villas at Wilderness Lodge will be a nice choice.  You can stay at 2 bedroom villa that sleeps 6 and has a full kitchen so you can enjoy some meals right in your room.  I have stayed at Wilderness Lodge and thought it was great.  Your kids will have fun splashing around in the pool and there are wonderful restaurant choices right in the resort.

    For other resort choices for parties of 5 or more, check HERE.

    You didn't say how long you were staying at Disney, but if time allows, try to schedule at least one day for each of the 4 Theme Parks.  Your boys are at a fun age that they will want to try so many of the different attractions!  My kids are 9 and 5, pretty close to your kids ages, and some of their favorites are Test Track at Epcot, Toy Story Mania at Hollywood Studios, and Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom.  You know your kids best, so go on rides that you think they will like.  Your 4 month old will probably be dazzled by the colors and lights all around!

    Enjoy your 1st magical vacation to Disney and stop by guest service to receive your "First Visit" button!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
