Not only am I new to the DisBoard but I have never been to Disney either. So, this year I am taking my 11 yo daughter and myself on what she is calling the "vacation on a lifetime". 4 days at Disney, then 4 days cruising. We are planning for the end of May 2013. Just a few short months away... And I am lost, confused and overwhelmed! If someone could point me in the right direction, I would certainly appreciate it. I'm pretty sure of where we will be staying, what we will be doing, and how we are going to get there and back, but it's all the little "in between" stuff that is getting to me. Like tips?? What tips? We have to tip everybody? Where can I get a list of all the cool restaurants so we can decide where to eat? Someone told me to book through a DVC member by renting points. Good idea? What about extended hours? Where do I go to find out that info? As you can see, there is alot I don't know. But I feel confident that my new found WDW friends will guide the way!!! Thanks guys! Bonnie p.s. I want a timer so I can count down to my vacation too!
