    My wife and I are visiting Disney World for the first time in our lives with our 3 children ages 9, 6, & 3. We'll be spending 5 days in Orlando, with 5 day park hopper passes. I just want to know some must do's in order to maximize our family experienc

    Hi Kevin,

    When it comes to planning how to spend your days at the parks, I am a huge fan of It is a website from the fine folks behind the tour book The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World. This site offers over 100 itineraries and suggestions (based on research) about the best dates to visit and the best dates to avoid visiting specific parks.  Even with all the trips we've taken, we still rely on the touring plans since they can really reduce our waits in lines.  You'll discover a significant number of itineraries to choose from that will best reflect your family's needs. I think it is a perfect choice for families planning their first trips to Walt Disney World.

    Just to note, there is a small fee for this, but one I find incredibly worthwhile. If you'd prefer to go another route with planning, just let us know.  We are happy to help!  

    If you have any more questions, please let us know.  We all know how overwhelming it can be planning a first trip to WDW.
