First time to disney!

Hii, I'm new to all if this but I am proud to say Me and my boyfriend have our very first trip to Disney next September! We are staying in the quality inn down I drive and we figured we probably won't be spending all that amount of time in it. I could do with a few tips, where to buy tickets from? We know we want the all in one tickets and also discovery cove but it is like a mine field out there! Good tips in general for Florida? I really want to go to a beach while in Florida to have a chill out day by the coast, looking at maybe cocoa beach or Daytona? We won't be hiring a car so is there any shuttle buses to any of the beaches? We LOVE our food and not picky eaters at all, I really want to go to a proper American Style Diner, anyone know of a good one? Also if anyone has an itinerary I can have a glance at? We want to do most of the parks (I'm not fills convinced on sea world) but definatly all of Disney and universal and im a lover of water parks too :-) Thanks for your help! Beth

Are you from the U.S.? The American diner is the Waffle House. Eggs , Bacon ,Grits , hashbrowns smothered and covered. Not real good health food but it sure does taste good. Black coffee . Daytona is a good beach I do not know of any shuttle bus service. Buy your T shirts at Walmart. They are Disney shirts for allot less money. Go to the Kennedy Space center. Go see the alligator farm. Disney has great water parks. Sea World is great. Since you are going in September I would go to Mickeys not so scary Halloween Party. Universal has the night of horror all are good partys to attend , You must have a special ticket for these events. If I think of anymore I will post it for you. Good Luck on your first trip. You will be in for the time of your life.

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, Beth, and welcome! You are going to have so much fun!!!

As for the tickets, lots of people have luck with undercover tourist.

For itinerary, take a look at www.touringplans.com . Lots of their stuff requires a subscription, but there's a fair amount for free. Or take a look at www.easywdw.com

Sorry, I can't help you on diners, though I can reccommend some great ones near me in NY.

For the beach, Orlando is pretty much inland, about an hour to the coast. I imagine that an Orlando tourism site could probably get you the info you want. And I'll second the idea of the Kennedy Space Center.. it's amazing!

Happy planning!
