    Smile I'm going to DisneyWorld!

    Hi everyone, I'm so excited! I never thought we would be able to do Disney, but we are going at the end of June with my 9 year old son who turns 10 while we're there, and my 3 year old daughter. I'm just amazed at all the planning involved, and so worried about the crowds and lines. I've researched EVERYTHING, my husband laughs at me because I've been obsessed with finding every website about DW that I can find! Stumbled upon this this morning and I've been reading all the threads, I'm so glad cuz' I have a ton of questions!

    Welcome, you've found a nice site with great folks that are always helpful.

    My best tip is a break mid-day from the heat, a dip in the pool and a nap for the 3 yr. old. Been traveling with my two for nearly 20 years. It works well when they are so young.

    Have fun planning.

    Welcome! I noticed someone already suggested a mid-day break. I highly recommend this. Also, know that the parks could be crowded, and just accept the fact that you do what you can, and make a "next time" list for those that you don't get to enjoy. WDW is a big place, and it's not intended to be done all in one trip unless you have an unlimited amount of time and money. Pick a few priority activities and restaurants with contingency plans should rides breakdown or whatever. Think about some guessing games or "I see something...." games that will help pass the time in the lines. If you stay on property, you'll be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours in Magic Kingdom. Not all the rides are open, but a majority of the rides for little people are. I hope you'll have a great time.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    Welcome to the fun. You can hit Deb's Unofficial Walt Disney World Vacation Information Guide - WDW Planning Guide - Walt Disney World for the menus of every restaurant on property and that will really help with reservations if you need them, but ask whatever question and someone will know the answer or where to get it.
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.
