Overplanning Crazy Head

Hi! I'm a WAHM of two preschoolers and y'all are all gonna laugh at me, I know it - but my DH and I are planning a WDW trip with them for their birthdays...in 2017... They will be 8 and 9 that year, and we know things change but are just trying to keep up with info and save money. DH has never been to WDW, only DL (he grew up in CA), and I've been to DL several times as a toddler and once as an adult; WDW when I was 11 (almost 12) in 1996. Excited to get to know all of you and learn from your expertise!

Almost forgot - this will be our first and likely only trip to WDW as a family, so I want everything to be just right. There's talk of a DL trip next summer when we visit our relatives in CA (we are in CO for the time being), so we will be looking for guidance on that as well!

I feel like we should have special rings that we bump together that emit pixie dust when you say that! Hahaha
