Welcome! WDW has so much to offer - hope you have a great first trip! The DIS is a great place to get started.

As far as hotels go there are many to choose from - with different themes, locations, amenities and of course cost. I like to think WDW has a hotel for just about anyone. The fun part is deciding which kind of atmosphere you want for your first trip! At least the hotel is where I usually start when planning a trip and then I go from there. Allears.net is a good resource - there are videos of all the WDW hotels so you can get an idea of what they are like.

You may be able to get a special offer for your stay - I almost never book rack rate - always try to get a discount - 30% off or even free dining. I am an AP holder so get good room discounts but I have noticed the AP discount is about the same as the special offer that is on the WDW website right now. If you can get a discount - the package is a good option IMO - room and tickets and if you choose - dining plan. One of the things WDW does well is take care of everything for you from getting your luggage from the airport to your room, to making sure you get back to the airport right on time.

You will want to book your dining reservations as soon as possible and plan for those just like everything else.

Have a great time planning - ENJOY! I have booked trips even just one week before and had a great trip - even though I had to shlep my own bags because I didn't have time to get the "Mickey Mail". WDW is a fun vacation to plan and a fun vacation to experience and I hope you find lots of helpful information here on the DIS!
