    Hi we are planning our first time ever tO WDW we are gonna be there July 21- July 28 2012 we are going in a large group of ages 2-50 but we reall don't have and idea on what to do PLEASE HELP!!

    Hi, Diana!  Let's start with this - BREATHE!!  We'll get you through it!

    Okay, let's start with theme parks.  How many days do you want to visit the parks?  Many people opt for one park per day, and then either go back to the ones they haven't seen enough of, or they use other days to go to the water parks, Downtown Disney, or DisneyQuest.  So, how many days passes are you going to have?  That will help you plan that part.

    Have you made any dining reservations yet?  With a large group, it can be tough to get reservations sometimes, but you may still have time if you want to do some of the sit down dining experiences.  Start by checking online by visiting Disney Dining Reservations.  You can put in the day you want to eat, the time, the number of guests, and what type of food you want, and a list of available options will pop up.  Things like character dining experiences book quickly, and guests can begin booking 180 days in advance, so if you want to try to snag one of those reservations, check right away!

    I'm assuming you've got your resort booked, and you have your transportation to the Orlando area.  If you are flying in, do you know about Disney's Magical Express?  It's the free shuttle that will take you to the resort. 

    If you have specific questions, we can go from there, but I hope this is enough to get you started in the right direction!  I'm hoping this is the first of many magical trips!
