    my head is spinning from the fast passes, dinning reservations and touring plan at WDW that I wondering if were going to do and see things or just be eating all the time. How does a person schedule his visit to be enjoyable and pleasant... I needs help !

    Hello Ann (without an e) from Anne (with an e)!
    I can still remember planning our first trip and how overwhelming everything seemed. The Walt Disney World Resort is huge and offers nearly countless ways to be entertained, to eat, and to relax. Take a deep breath and repeat after me: "We can't do it all, but we can do what we want!"  Different people "do" Disney in different ways. My family loves to hit the parks early and run hard until after lunch. We then take a break, swim, or nap until its time for dinner and an evening at the Parks or at Downtown Disney (soon to be Disney Springs). Other families like to take it slower by sleeping in or simply spending a day or two enjoying their Resort Hotel.  The beauty of a Disney vacation is the ability to do it your way. The real trick is remembering that you can NOT do it all. You will need to pick and choose. Since you have some time before your trip I suggest you pick up the book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World." This entertaining guide book will tell you everything you need to know in order to plan a trip that fits your family.  After you spend some time with that resource, you can also check out some great online resources including or  While these are not "official" Disney resources, they can be extremely helpful. And, of course, you can always come back and ask us more questions here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel- we love to helpl!

    See ya real soon,
