    We want to start planning our first trip to Disney World. As a family of 5 I would like to learn the best tricks to plan our trip and get the best discounts we can. I have no idea where to even start. Any tips?

    Hello Ashley and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where I'm thrilled to help sprinkle some additional pixie dust onto your plans to visit the magic of Walt Disney World Resort for the very 1st time!
    Planning for your 1st ever trip to Walt Disney World Resort can be half the fun of your visit and I would suggest beginning by having a good look around on Disney.go.com and also Comparing Disney Resorts to discover the Resort that is just right and practically perfect in every for your lovely family.
    Plus you may want to check out this helpful spot to uncover all current Special Offers, Deals & Discounts and don't forget there are Disney Gift Cards which can be pre-purchased and then used as payment to help with the cost of a Disney vacation and in my experience are a convenient way to help budget whilst at Walt Disney World Resort.
    Another unmissable building block to creating your special 1st ever Disney vacation is to create a My Disney Experience account and to download the super magical My Disney Experience Mobile app; both these amazing gizmos will help seamlessly connect all the elements of your zip-a-dee-do-dah Disney days creating more free-time to relax and enjoy what's sure to be unforgettable 1st ever trip.
    Have a great Disney day.
