    Hi, taking family to Disney July 20-25th of next year. Can I please get an iteniary !? Ages are 25,33,38,42,66,16,18,4 and 4. we are staying in the Animal Kingdom 3 bedroom villas ! Thanks in advance !

    Hi Bianca!

    That is quite the crew you have going! We often vacation with my four kids, my parents, friends and cousins. A Grand Villa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas is a great plan. Everyone will have their own space, yet you can still be together.

    A full 5 day vacation itinerary for a party of 9 is something way to large to fit in my limited space, but I do have a few suggestions for you! One of the best resources I found, and one I still love is The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World. In addition to going through all the resorts, attractions and dining choices in detail, it also offers what it calls Touring Plans. These are detailed, step by step plans of what to see in what order in each park to minimize your time spent in line. You can find this book at major booksellers, or my favorite place, your local Library! You can also visit their website, TouringPlans.com. There is a lot of free information there, but with a subscription you can get even more. On our first family trip, I used a Touring Plan for each park, and although my husband thought it was a little crazy to follow a plan, after a few hours he agreed that it was awesome!

    You may also wish to consider using a Disney Authorized Travel Agent. Many Guests do not realize that a travel agent’s services are completely free, and you will not pay more to book your vacation with a travel agent. They can help you make Advance Dining Reservations and FastPass+ selections and that may be something that would be helpful for you. Most major Disney Parks fan sites have a travel agency they recommend, so I usually recommend one of those that only work with Disney vacations, rather than visiting a local travel agent.

    Other great planning sites I like are AllEars.net, MouseSavers.com and EasyWDW.com. I hope that helps a bit, and if you have any more specific questions I really would love to help you out as much as possible!

    Happy Planning!
