    I want to plan our first trip as a family for very early Feb 2010, I can't seem to do it online yet. but I want my daughter (3) to meet Mickey, Minnie, etc. how early can I reserve character dining and is it hard to get a reservation?

    Hello Dena! Planning a trip to Disney is so much fun, and your first trip as a family is extra exciting!

    Disney won't be releasing their 2010 rates until later this year. However, you can book a room-only reservation 499 days in advance by calling 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639). Once the packages are announced, you can always call and convert your room-only reservation to a package if you wish.

    You can make reservations for character dining and your other meals 90 days in advance of your trip by calling 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463). There are many character meals to choose from and if you have a good idea of which ones you would like, it is usually not a problem to get a reservation when you book early. If you don't get a reservation for the day or time you want on your first try, my advice is to be flexible or keep calling back in case of cancelations.

    In the meantime, enjoy researching all of the fun things to do and see at Walt Disney World. It's so much fun to decide on which resort to stay at and what restaurants you would like to try. By the time you're ready to book your trip, you'll be really prepared.

    Good luck and have fun planning your trip!
