    1. Love all of your ideas! thank you so much for sharing them. We did a few similar things before our Disneyland trip and we are going to try and plan a Disneyworld trip in a couple of years (when our youngest is a little older) Hopefully I won't forget about this then! Can't wait to see your Disney Family Nights ideas! thanks again!

    2. I think we are finally going to make it to Disney World. We had plans to go last April for my son's 7th birthday, but they were cancelled. Hopefully we will make it there in early December. Thanks for sharing your Disney tips! I know many of them will come in handy.

    3. I just want to thank you so much for putting this guide together. We are finally making our first family trip to WDW with our 7 year old daughter and almost 2 yr old daughter. My husband and I haven't been since 1996!!! I was "born at Disney" my mom likes to say since it opened the year I was born and my aunt worked there so we went for free all the time when we were little. My older brother was at the opening and even in a fashion show there! Needless to say it was a huge part of my childhood and we are so excited to finally be able to take our girls there and your guides are super helpful. Thanks so much!

    5. I have never visited Disneyland and reading your post it seems that the visit is very alive. We are planning to learn more about Walt disney and for sure I will make a link here later. Thanks for sharing.

    6. I've never used a travel agent before but it seems like that would be the best option when going to Disney World. And I see that you recommend a certain agency. Do you pay more when using an agency? Do they have fees that they charge? Thanks for your help and for all the wonderful information on your blog about Disney. I am planning a trip for my girls' birthday celebration in February (2 yr old and 5 yr old).

      1. No fees for using a travel agency! You will get the SAME price as booking through Disney, but will get the personalized service and expertise of someone who is trying to get you the best deals!! It's a win-win!

    7. About how much does it cost to go to Disney in Florida for a family of 4? I'm thinking next year sometime, when our kids are 4 and 6. I have no idea how much I need to save for it. Thanks!
