    I am so excited! I just found out that we are going to WDW the first week of February! Our last trips I have planned down to the second, a year in advance! I don't know where to start to plan something so quickly! Please help!:mickeyjum:mickeyjum:mickeyjum:

    You still have time to get together a good plan. The most important things: Where are you staying? DO you need to try to make and Dining Reservations....I think for me the easiest way to plan is to figure out what day and what park, then I figure out the "Must Do's" at each park and just work on that, anything else will be a bonus!! Have Fun!!!

    This is what I would do:

    Step 1 -- Look at the park schedules and decide which parks you want to be at based on EMH. Do you want to do all the am EMH or all the pm EMH? Or do you want to avoid EMH parks? Once you have picked your parks, then . . .

    Step 2 -- start booking your ADRs. You might not get what you want the first time, but keep trying. I booked our last trip in a little over two months time and got every single ADR. A lot of them become available when people reach their 45-day mark and cancel their trips. That would be about now for an end-of-Feb trip. I got on the Disney dining page multiple times a day throughout the day until I had everything I wanted. You might also want to look at a thread in the dining section called something like Feb. 2012 Cancelled ADRs (title may vary).

    Step 3 -- Now just go with the flow! You know which parks you will be visiting each day and you know your ADRs. I don't think crowds will have picked up at the end of February the way they will in March, so touring the parks should be relatively relaxed.

    Have a great trip1

    Here's what I'd do. Find out park hours. go on line and pick some meals don't stress about getting into a favorite restaurant, dont stress about "best park", don't stress over EMH's. I've had wonderful vacations with 2 weeks notice. In fact they were better because I didn't have months in which to obsess over every detail.
