    I will be visiting around spring break. It will be my husband, 4 kids and myself, the kids are ages 13,9,2,1. This will be my husband and the 2 younger kids first trip. What are some must do things that will make this a magical trip?

    Hi Ashanti!

    Your entire family will absolutely fall in LOVE with the magic of Disney! Since you'll be traveling with your two younger children, I recommend reading this excellent Disney Parks Blog entry. As a general plan, I would suggest visiting the 4 Disney Theme Parks & 2 Disney Water Parks at least once. If possible, begin at Magic Kingdom and end there too. Be sure to take advantage of the convenience offered by Rider Switch services.

    If your vacation plans aren't a surprise, invite your children to browse through the Disney Resort Hotels. It could help you determine which resort they might prefer. Please don't forget to check any Special Offers that may be applicable to your specific dates. I recommend selecting 5-Day Tickets and adding the Water Park Fun & More Option. Afterward, start planning your days through My Disney Experience. Your older children have already visited the Walt Disney World Resort. Therefore, they could select some favorite attractions, and help you look for others based on their interests. I recommend booking at least one Disney Character Dining reservation. They are so much much!

    Instead of trying to check all the "must-do" things, do focus on what's most important to you and your family. As you continue to plan your visit, please come back with any other questions you may have for us.

    Wishing you an unforgettable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
