    I am surprising my 2 kids (girl 13, boy 8) with a trip to WDW for Christmas, this will be the first vacation we have taken in 4 years. Where do I start? We really want to see the night laser light show!

    Hi Tammy:

    Congratulations on the well-earned vacation. You have some great Disney vacation planning tools available to you on Walt Disney World's website.

    I would start by visiting Disney's in-depth planning page for planning your first trip and Frequently Asked Questions page. Make sure you order Disney's Vacation Planing DVD (look for the Moms Panel cameo), browse Magic Your Way vacation packages and take advantage of Disney's "My Vacation" planning tool to create an itinerary of must-see attractions and entertainment.

    Another popular site,, which is not an official Disney website, also has some great planning tools. Just use the search function on the website to search for "planning."

    Enjoy your vacation.
