    Hi Ashley:

    There is so much to do at Walt Disney World that a number of guests ask themselves, "where do I begin?" The good news is that there are some great Disney vacation planning tools available right on Walt Disney World's website.

    My first piece of advice is to order the Disney Vacation Planning DVD, which will give you an overview of Disney World's four amazing theme parks, two incredible water parks and more than 20 magnificent Disney Resort hotels, as well as give you family vacation planning tips and details about special events in Disney Parks in Florida.

    I would also visit Walt Disney World's website to browse vacation packages and take advantage of Disney's "My Disney Vacation" planning page tool. Also look at Disney World's FAQ page for answers to frequently asked Guest questions.

    Another popular site, allears.net, which is not an official Disney website, also has some great planning tools. Just use the search function on the website to search for "planning."

    I would make sure you visit all four major theme parks, but without knowing your budget or your daughter's age or interests, it's tough to recommend specific activities.  I would browse Disney World's Accommodations page to look at various Resort options (there's a Resort for every taste and budget) and Recreation page for some activity ideas.  If those pages give you some ideas, return to the moms panel if you have specific questions.
