    My 4 year old twins (they will be 5 when we go), my boyfriend and I are all planning a trip to Disney World March 13-17th 2018. Where do I even start? I know we are driving but I have no clue where to even begin..?

    Hi, Aleigh!

    Planning a vacation to Walt Disney World is a big job, but as Mary Poppins says, in every job that must be done, there's an element of fun. Let's find the fun!

    First, let's talk places to stay. There is a Walt Disney World resort for just about every budget. Choose from an amazingly themed value resort, a moderately priced resort with awesome amenities, or a deluxe resort with all the bells and whistles.

    Next, decide how many days you want to visit the Walt Disney World theme parks. Some people want to see all four parks. Other families prefer to spend more time at Magic Kingdom, especially with little ones. For some people, one park per day is plenty; others like the park hopper option, so they can visit multiple parks in the same day. You'll want to think about which works better with your vacation style.

    Dining is another consideration. You can add a Disney Dining Plan, which for many families is a great way to know ahead of time what the food budget will be. It can really help in planning.

    You can do all of this one step at a time, or go ahead and book a Magic Your Way vacation package, that can include everything. And always check to see if there are any special offers available.

    Have a great time planning, Aleigh, and come on back if you need us!
