    Hello again Anteria. Thanks so much for sending me another question. Making a repeat connection with a guest is one of my favorite aspects of serving on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    Planning a trip to the happiest place on earth can seem overwhelming. Breaking the task into steps, grabbing some assistance from the Moms Panel, and the sheer fun of creating a magical vacation makes preparing for a visit as easy to accomplish as a fairy godmother turning a pumpkin into a carriage. Your first step, picking a resort, has already begun.

    After your family picks a resort you can decide if you want to add on a Disney Dinning Plan. Consider a Magic Your Way Package which includes tickets, resort, and has a meal plan option. For your large crew a basic DDP, which provides one table service meal, one quick service meal, and one snack per day might be a good choice.

    Next consider tickets. Base tickets allow for one theme park per day. The more days your purchase, the cheaper your per day cost is. Some ticket add on options include Park Hopper, which allows you to visit multiple parks per day, and Water Park Fun and More which gives you water park admission, mini golf, and more.

    Making dinning reservations is a must for table service meals and character meals, but you may walk into any counter service restaurant. I would love to provide restaurant recommendations to help you when you reach this stage. One of your final tasks will be to map out your itinerary.

    Consider a five day visit. If your budget allows for a longer stay, however, go for it. Five days allows you one day for each theme park and an off day to check out a water park, Downtown Disney, and your resort offerings.

    I've reached my allotted space limit. Please contact me again for more tips and advice.
