I need help planning the trip. I'm on the website and there's so many options on where to stay, what to do, etc...

Ideas and advice would be great! Thanks girls.

I've been but we didn't stay on site only because we had a free place to stay. If I were paying I would stay on site for sure. If you have any specific questions I would be glad to help as much as possible. :)

Thanks for the help. I'm confused as to how the tickets for the park work. Can you only use one ticket per park per day? Does that make sense? And did you use any of the dining features?

We got park hopper passes for the whole week. What web site are you booking through?

 I've never been but my dd went with her bio father and family.  I wish I could help but I don't have any experience with it.
How fun!!! When do you plan to go?

Budget?

Which parks are you interested in?

Only Disney parks or do you want Sea World and stuff too?

What kind of accommodations do you prefer?

What's your usual eating habits?

We didn't stay on site, w stayed at another hotel that had a shuttle to and from the parks. We also bought park hopper tickets so we could go to any park.

How many people? 4. But I'm going to say 3 because my son is 2 and from what I've read he's free.

Budget? I have no idea. Dad (who is overseas) called me this morning and told me to get an estimate for everything. My total so far is $1,9??and change :-/ That was before airfare so I don't know if that's fair or not.

How many days? I want to say 4 days. Anything longer would be too much for the little one. What do you think?

Which parks are you interested in? Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon

Only Disney parks or do you want Sea World and stuff too? Disney only

What kind of accommodations do you prefer? Some place clean! And safe obviously. I don't see us spending alot of time in the room so...I don't need anything 5 star.

What's your usual eating habits? My usual eating habits are all day everyday. Lol. But I imagine that the kids won't do alot of eating because they'll be so busy playing. That was a hard one for me. They offer different packages and I couldn't decide between 2 meals a day with snack or 3 meals with snack.

Well dad should be home in June. Since we don't know the exact date we're planning a late July or early August trip. I'm so excited! I've always wanted to go. 

lightbulbIDEA!! If this plan falls through, I'm going anyway minus the kids and you're coming with me!! Lol!

So 3 adults and a 2 year old?

How many rooms do you need?

Do you want the option of cooking in the room?

I say you can never have to long at Disney. LOL

I would suggest that you don't leave out Epcot. That's the best one in my opinion. 

If you don't have the option of cooking in your room then 3 meals a day is the way to go.
