    I'm planning our first DW trip for 7/3/10-7/10/10. I have 4 adults and 2 kids, ages 10 &7. We are staying at AK. Can you help me figure out an itineary for parks and eating. I'm overwhelmed with all the choices! Oh and transportation seems crazy too. C


    Right now the schedules for July aren't published, so let's work on other planning steps for now, and address actual daily plans closer to the early January time frame, ok?

    Let's start with transportation. Are you using the Magical Express service to get to your resort from the airport? It is free and convenient, so make sure you are signed up, via wherever you made your reservations.

    As for transportation within Walt Disney World, you have it pretty easy. From the Animal Kingdom Lodge, most everything is a bus ride. Theme parks, water parks, Downtown Disney, you name it. If you want to go to another resort for dinner, you just take a bus to Downtown Disney, and transfer to a bus going to that resort. There are a few easier ways to get to a few select resorts, but we can chat about that later!

    Meals. Are you considering the Disney Dining Plan? I recommend it highly. Let me know how you eat (fast food, table service, etc.) and I can make  a plan suggestion.

    So that kicks off our planning. Let me know about these, and we can get started!

    Have a magical vacation!
