    I am planning our 1st trip to WDW.. Not really sure where to begin. What is included in the package deals??

    Hi there Rosemary it's so excited to hear that you are planning your first visit to Walt Disney World!  Disney's Magic Your Way packages are a great way to include everything that you need for your vacation.  Packages include your Disney Resort, park admission and the option of including Disney's Dining Plan.  Disney also takes care of the transportation while you are visiting, Disney's Magical Express will deliver you and your luggage from the airport and while on property Disney's transportation gets you where you need to go.  
     I usually start with deciding time of  year I want to visit, certain times of the year are much more crowded and more expensive.Next think about is your budget, Disney has resorts that will fit almost any budget and size party.  This is the only part of the package that can vary in price depending on the season you visit.  
    Once I have all of those details squared away, I start making my dining reservations.  Disney has spectacular restaurants and meals that allow you to eat with your favorite character or princess.  Some of these book very quickly so it is best to book them as soon as possible.  Guests can book their dining reservations 180 days from the day of check in.  
    Two great websites to check for discounts, dining menus and other latest Disney news is and  The Mom's Panel loves to answer questions you may have so feel free to ask us anything!  Hope this helps get you started Rosemary, have a wonderful time planning your 1st Walt Disney World Vacation.
    Best Wishes
