Newbie here, but WDW vet, taking extended family for first time!

Hi All, There is so much to read and learn here, but I thought I would throw my story out and see what happens! I used to live in Orlando, so I've been to the WDW parks many times. But that was with friends and we came and went as needed. Finally, I will be going back with the family in June; my dad, brother, sis in law, 9 yr. old niece and 4 yr old nephew! None of them have ever been. We are staying off site at a condo nearby.
The current thought is the military appreciation tix as my dad is a veteran.
I really want to help in making this a wonderful vacation for everyone as we probably won't all do this together again. We are trying to be as budget concious as possible.
I want to have somewhat of a plan but keep options open so everyone is happy. Since I've never done this with a family, I would love some tips on making this a really great experience for everyone. I've never worried about the fast passes before or much about food since it was usually a few hours out with friends. So I'm fairly clueless where all that is concerend!
Looking forward to some expertise advice!
