    1st trip to WDW is 5/30-6/6, my girls are 3 & 5. I didn't want to be rigid in planning every aspect of our trip not knowing how tired they would be, but after reading these panels, I feel maybe I shoud plan each day out,?

    Hi Tina!  How exciting to soon be headed to WDW for your first trip and thanks for the great question.  You can do WDW any way you like, however, I will tell you that having some sort of game plan does seem to help keep your week in order.  This does not mean that you have to plan out every single moment.  But for instance, let's say you really want to take your girls to a character dining experience.  You do have to have reservations for these and it helps to know what day you will be in each park, so you can make sure your reservations work with your schedule.  I will tell you, I love to plan out the beginning of the week, which parks we will be at and which reservations for dining must be made.  Then on the last two days, it's anything goes.  We go to whatever parks the girls pick and we just eat wherever.  That way they have done so many different things at the beginning of the week, we go back to their favorites and the end of our vacation, and I betcha those little princesses will have their favorites.  I hope this helps you and I especially hope those girls enjoy their very first trip to WDW.
