Earning My Ears

First Timer from VA!

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself as a new member of the DisBoards! I am a lover of ALL things Disney and can't wait for they day I can make it there again. I went once when I was 4, and haven't been back since. I don't remember much, but I've always had a dream that when my first child turned 5, I would return with them, and hopefully it would become an annual family tradition. That time has finally come. My DD is 3, will be 4 this May, so I am planning our first trip for Nov' 2015! I am so excited and cannot wait! This next year will probably seem like it's taking an eternity to come but I am excited to finally be going back!

Any first time tips or veteran knowledge would be well appreciated especially since I have ZERO knowledge about the planning process.

I would love to stay at the AKL one day, or the Epcot Resort Area, and am keeping fingers crossed for our first vacation for one of those spots! I may stay at the Dolphin (I work in Events for the Westin and am an SPG member, so I would get a discount), but I am also looking at Port Orleans Riverside Royal Rooms, Pop Century, POFQ, or YC/BC (Stormalong Bay )!

I am a HUGE Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, Princess and the Frog, and Frozen fan as is my DD.

But enough about me, I hope you will be seeing a little more of me and able to answer any questions I have as there are A LOT of them.

Anybody else traveling to Disney in 2015? Is November a good time to go? Any advice or well wishes you can send my way? Thanks DIS users!!
