Help!! First timer to dl!!!

I have been to WDW many times. We will be driving from my parents winter place in AZ (5 hours) and staying 3 nights and going to DL 2 days. We are a Hilton family. I see they are about 1 mile away. I would love to stay closer but there are no Hilton's closer. What is my best bet to walk or take the shuttle bus from a Hilton hotel? Will two days at the parks be enough? I am so excited that I can hardly stand it! I am not going to tell my kids till we get there- half the fun

2 days will not be enough if you want to see everything like shows, parades, evening entertainment.

Here's a great thread for you "A DLR Guide for WDW Vets"

I agree with this.
Do a little reading and figure out a list of MUST'S. Start with those and then work your way through other things.
