Though I’ve planned multiple trips for my family, this will be my first time planning a trip with another family - my brother’s. I have a good relationship with him and his family, and I CANNOT WAIT for my nephews to experience the Disney Magic! For those of you who have planned successful multi-family trips, I would love to get your thoughts, primarily about the planning timeline. How far out would you advise having the first “planning meeting”? I was thinking about 7 mos out, but maybe that is not far enough out? We are DVC, so we have taken care of rooms, and tickets have already been purchased (prior to ticketing changes). So, I’m not sure when I should get together with them to start the REAL planning. Did any of you ask your family members to do some “homework” by reading like the Unofficial Guide or The Easy Guide? It’s been a long time since my brother has been to WDW, and I’m not sure if SIL has ever been or only went as a child/teen. So, I’d like for them to be able to actively and knowledgeably plan with me. Anyway, would love to hear from y’all about when (and how) you got the planning kicked off! Thanks!!!
