websites to help in planning!

Hi all so my question is what websites do you guys use to plan which parks to visit and what days?
We will be going to Disney World on the 21st of June to the 5th of July.
Stay off site as my Dad (who I cant even believe caved in) needs days away from the madness of it all. His idea of a vacation is historical buildings and days by the pool. So this will be a first for him.
I'm the only one out of the five us who has ever been to Disney World. I went last year on a trip with other Au Pairs for four days and the days and rides we're planned out by our leaders. I loved it and fell in love with Disney World so much and knew I had to get my parents and younger sisters there.
So basically I'm going crazy with planning I have Excel open and a presentation forming on my laptop at the moment...I want them to fully experience the Magic that I mentioned so much to.
Any websites or tips would be great!

mousesavers.com- great tips on discounts, how to save money

allears.net- very good info on all aspects of WDW- I especially like it for the menus.

And of course this site!

I also like EasyWDW

JMHO but you can "get away from the madness" at resort hotels - just avoid those that seem to cater more towards kids (Value resorts).

The advantages of staying within the World outweigh the negatives.....
