    Hello!!! Welcome to Disney Secrets!

    First, you'll have to determine your budget, I'd say. That will then give you a framework for the type of resort you want to book, whether you will have a car, how long you will be staying, if you are going to do most of your dining on property or off...

    You can stay offsite for much less than you can stay onsite usually, but you will then need a car. Otherwise, any savings would be spent on taxis. The public transport system in the Orlando area is not that great, so it's not a real option for you.

    So, give us an idea of what you plan on doing and we'll hop right in and give you so much advice your head will spin!!!

    WDW is HUGE compared to Disney Paris, so be prepared!

    Hi and welcome!


    I actually tend to plan backwards. I figure out the resort I want to stay at then figure out how much money I need to save.

    There is definitely a lot to think about when going, where to stay, what to do, where to eat, how much to eat, what to buy, how to get about, how to get there and home, etc....see lots. :D But hey, that's half the fun!
