    Amber from AL Asked

    I'm planning our first trip to Disney in 2017. Hopefully by March. Is there a certain time to go that is better than others? It will be my husband, 5 year old, 2 year old, and myself. I'm a bit overwhelmed at where to start planning. Any advice?

    Hi Amber,



    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. So excited for you! First, decide how many days you would like to stay at WDW. Suggestion? 5 to 6 days and you will not see it all. Decide which Disney's resort would you guys will stay. Stay in a value one because you will not have time to use the resort amenities, pools and everything. Disney's Pop Century Resort will be a great option for you. Read a  great review about that resort at Touring Plans. For the restaurants with table service, specially the ones with Character Meal, you will need to make reservations starting with 180 days in advance. Create your account at My Disney Expedience app and start to plan and book everything. With 60 days prior, schedule your FastPasses+ and purchase a Memory Maker because you will want to have all the photos from this first  trip and it will include the ride photos too. Don't hesitate to come back with other questions.



    Have a magical day!
