HI All, I just joined as we are planning our first trip to WDW. We are a family of 4. Me, DH, DD(8) and DS(6). We are hoping for sometime in 2014. Still debating on June (when kids get out of school), August (before kids start school), or May (risking taking kids out of school, but maybe worth it?). I am in the super beginning planning stages and am a little overwhelmed with all the decisions. Hoping reading and posting here will help. I will take ALL advice from anyone willing to help out. Major things I'm thinking about: 1. Where to stay. Definitely Disney resort, currently looking at Art of animation family suites, Port Orleans (relatives advice) and the Wilderness Lodge. 2. Dining plan...oh my gosh. Can't even begin to wrap my head around this one. My kids are SUPER picky eaters. I'm thinking maybe a buffet or 2 might be nice so they can pick whatever they want. But I imagine we don't wnat to be stuck sitting in restaurants very much. 3. Rides...son LOVES roler coasters, daughter won't go hardly any rides. Have a feeling we'll be splitting up for some of this trip. ANyway that's a start....if you're reading this and have any advice...send my way! Thanks.
