Greetings to all! 1st visit for my family this summer.

Hi everyone! Been reading for a while, seems like a very friendly board!

Heading down this August with my family (wife, 14, 12, 10 year old kids), haven't been since I was a child.

I think I've figured out the dining aspect (made ADRs), and have picked days to visit the parks.

The question I have is in regards to 1st timer advice...is there a thread dedicated to the things you should know (transportation map, check in procedures, etc?) for beginners?

Thanks!

Tim

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Hi Tim and welcome! I'm Alice from Long Island

I'm not aware of any particular thread, though you can learn a lot by just hitting the resorts and theme park forums.

Where are you staying? It can be tricky finding accomodations for a family of 5!

Here are my reactions to my first two family trips:
