Hello MWers, I am fairly new here (less than a month). I am also a novice with WDW planning, it being our first trip. I would appreciate your feedback. But first, let me introduce my family. Me, DH, DS13, DS10 soon to be 11 (with Aspergers, high functioning Autism spectrum) and DD3 who's celebrating her 4th bday during our WDW trip. We are also celebrating 1 year post her winning battle against brain cancer.
Welcome! Ur children r beautiful ! Congrats on ur winning the battle against cancer ! God bless u! - shewsluvwdw  58.0 #84 9:13PM
Welcome, congrats on the cancer celebration! Have a magical visit! - DizneyGirl  545.5 #9 9:35PM
Welcome! It sounds like you have quite an amazing family. Feel free to ask any questions you have. We love to help! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  796.8 #3 9:37PM
Welcome! Congrats on battling (your daughter's) cancer!!! That's AWESOME!!!! Also, congrats on your first trip! Your plan looks great!! I would just second what skcanfield said... Know that you won't get to see/do everything. I had a hard time with that on our first trip. I planned and planned and I was so disappointed when we didn't get to everything on my list (not even close). Now, I ask each family member to tell me the top 3-4 things they want to do at each park (there are 5 of us). This is our must-do list. Then, anything extra that we get to see and do is just the icing on the cake! Of course, some of us have a hard time narrowing down to just 3-4 things, especially in MK! ;) Happy planning! - BagGal  221.4 #31 9:40PM
Also be sure to check out the star wars parade. It's really cool - Disneyaddict  340.6 #599 9:42PM
I think I have said it already, but just in case I didn't Welcome!! What amazing miracles you have to celebrate and you will be in the best place to do it in. You have a wonderful family. Your line up and dinning choices sound great and some of my favorites. --another favorite dinning in DTD is earl of sandwhich. I could be wrong, but I don't think BOG has breakfast. You will love liberty tree and Hollywood and vine. Coral reef is amazing , ask if there is a table by the glass. The kids will love Disney quest and pizza planet! Wow fun filled magical week - mmddgp  371.1 #18 9:45PM
Sounds like you have a great plan so far, just relax and enjoy your visit! Like others have suggested, chose the things that are most important to see and do because you never have enough time to do everything. Make sure to take time to relax throughout the day, the parks can be very exhausting. Don't forget your First Visit and birthday buttons, just ask when you check in if they don't give them to you! You guys will have a great time! - Andrea84  625.0 #7 10:52PM

How's your planning going ? Congrats to your daughter and all the family for you success against cancer - 5disneylovers  769.7 #5 9:15PM
Congrats & welcome !!! Your plan looks very good . The only change I would make is to allow some down time to enjoy your resort . Remember , you won't be able to see & do everything !!!!! - skcanfield  467.7 #12 9:27PM
With kids of different age groups and interests, I am struggling with creating a tour plan for each park. I hope to be together with the mild rides and some shows. - nanay2jdr  28.1 #123 9:29PM
Sounds great! I believe you are staying at the port Orleans riverside. We are staying there now and we did the horse drawn carriage. My kids loved it. If you have time, you may want to check it out. - Disneyaddict  340.6 #599 9:38PM

Sorry for the multiple thanks. Tried to post it for each person but not doing it right and tried to delete them too. Thank you everyone for the congratulations and warm welcome. Time for me to go to my night shift. Good night. - nanay2jdr  28.1 #123 10:22PM
