    What recommendations would you give a mom of 3 year old planning there first Disney experience! I have no idea where to even start planning our trip. We would like to make it a memorial vacation but on a limited budget?

    Hello, April, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The best thing about a vacation to Where The Magic Is Endless is that all Guests, regardless of budget, can make the most unique memories, returning for repeat visits sooner than they think.

    When I'm working with a limited budget I begin by checking for Special Offers, Deals and Discounts and I try to build an inclusive Magic Your Way Vacation package containing a Disney Resort hotel, Theme Park Tickets and the option to add a Disney Dining Plan package. The benefits of staying on property are many, amounting to greater convenience and unique experiences.

    April, you can select a Disney Resort hotel in the Value, Moderate, Deluxe, or Deluxe Villa price point. May I suggest you explore the list of Disney Resort hotels after you have selected your specific 'Price Range' from the drop-down menu in the filter. Disney's Art of Animation Resort for example is in the Value category and a hit with preschoolers.

    May I also offer Preschool Parents' Guide to Walt Disney World Resort for helpful tips and advice which you can download and bring with you to use during your visit.

    If you need any other assistance, April, we would be pleased to help you with your planning.
