    Hi Jac,

    And :spraywelcome: to Secrets!

    Give us some specifics. Are you staying onsite? How long will you be there? Those kinds of things. If we've got some boundaries to work within, we can provide better information.

    Hi Jac and a warm :secrets3:

    You really can`t beat that first ever visit to WDW and I can guarantee that it won`t be your last! :yes:

    You will be amazed at how big WDW is, and taking account of all of the other attractions in the area, make sure that you allow some "free" days in order to catch your breath or you will be worn out at the end of your vacation.
    I recall our first visit when we were dashing around like headless chickens trying to see and do everything and quickly found that two weeks ain`t enough!

    Feel free to post away with any specific questions you have and someone will be along real soon to help out.

    See you around the site. :wave:

    Welcome!! My BIGGEST words of wisdom for you would be to utilize the fastpass system to its fullest. It will cut down on wait time and make for an overall better experience!

    hi:wave:
    my tip is to plan what you will be doing each day, this saves a lot of time each day. plan in to your itinery some rest time too x
    i am starting to plan my days now, i start off by booking some dining reservations where i would like to eat, decide which parks i am going to and you are nearly sorted.
    last year i did 3 days doing parks and 1 day off etc that worked well:yes:
