    I am planning a vacation with me and my son (5) this will be Our first trip to Disney And I am a little overwhelmed and I have No idea where to start. I have our lodging figured out but what we will be doing I am lost please Help thanks.

    Hi Kayla:

    There is so much to do at Walt Disney World that a number of guests ask themselves, "where do I begin?" The good news is that there are some great Disney vacation planning tools available right on Walt Disney World's website.

    My first piece of advice is to order the Disney Vacation Planning DVD, which will give you an overview of Disney World's four amazing theme parks, two incredible water parks and more than 20 magnificent Disney Resort hotels, as well as give you family vacation planning tips and details about special events in Disney Parks in Florida.

    I would also visit Walt Disney World's website to browse vacation packages and take advantage of Disney's My Disney Experience to help you create an itinerary of must-see attractions and entertainment. Also browse through Disney's FAQs for more planning insight.  Since you have lodging set, I would check out Disney's Dining Pages to look at restaurants and reserve some meals in advance of your trip.

    Although a lot of information to take in, the sooner you start planning the better. It's likely that after a few minutes browsing these websites, you'll find that planning a Disney vacation is a lot more fun than intimidating.   Once you absorb the basic information, return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask more specific questions.

    Enjoy your planning.
