    Hello there, We are totally excited about bringing our family of 6 to Disney! It's a treat for all of us to be together for a week, and my husband and I to be off from our busy full time jobs. Any suggestions on where to start? Which park and where to go?

    Hi Deb!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Moms Panel.  You didn't say if this is going to be your first trip to Walt Disney World, but I'm going to guess it is.  I'm sorry if I'm wrong!  Several panelists recently answered a question about planning a first trip, and you can see their various view points here..

    You can price out a vacation on the main Walt Disney World web site or you can call Disney Reservations at (407) 939-7675.  Be sure to ask about any special offers or promotions when you call.  You can see the latest specials here on-line.

    You should order a free planning DVD.  If you are first time visitors, then I also recommend picking up a copy of "The Complete Walt Disney World" by Mike and Julie Neal.  It's a great tour book, winning 8 national book awards, and  loaded with lots of pictures.  Actually, it's a great book regardless of how many times you have visited!

    Finally, be sure to make Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) for any Table Service (full service) restaurants you are interested in.  ADRs can be made up to 180 days in advance.  Walt Disney World has some really great places to eat and many of them book up rapidly.  You can make ADRs here.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions.
