    Hi! We are trying to plan our first trip to WDW and would like to know what is the best time, and the best package for parents with 3 little girls under 10?

    Hi Stephanie - Congratulations on planning your first Walt Disney World vacation!

    The best timing for your trip is really going to vary depending on your kids' vacation schedule.  I personally like to visit during the first week of May, between April school vacation and the start of summer.  It's less crowded in the parks, costs are generally lower, and the weather usually isn't too hot.  Another great time to visit is around Halloween, when the fall weather is cooler and you can attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party. 

    For tickets, I generally like to recommend getting the park hopper option on your ticket.  That way, you'll be able to visit multiple parks per day.  We often enjoy dining in a different park from where we've visited during the day, so the park hopper really works for us.  I also recommend getting the standard dining plan, where you get one snack credit, one table service credit, and one quick service credit. 

    I hope that helps!  Have fun planning your vacation!
