I'm new and overwhelmed!

Hi! I'm brand new to this and am a little overwhelmed. I've been to Disney World several times, but I am now planning my first trip as a momma. My husband and two children have never been!!! Any tips on navigating this site would be much appreciated. I don't even know what questions to ask. I see there is a trip planning area, so I think I'll head there next...

Do you know when you're going? There are discussions for different months and the resorts and dining. Just type up what you're looking for and there will be a thread for it, it's totally awesome here and I visit the boards every day. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask, everyone here is very helpful and friendly and will answer any question that you and your family may have. Have a Magical Day and enjoy the DISboards.

Welcome to you!! As THEVACATIONFAMILY `sez, there is something on the boards for each part of your planning: budget, when, how (car/plane), where, dining (including the DDP), attractions, shows, etc. The DISboards actually makes planning FUN and part of your vacation experience!!

Have a wonderful, magical trip.

Feel'n A Wee Bit Ignorant

I'd like to say...where the heck did you folks come from...but as a guy who has been traveling, every year since 83, to Disney World...I'd be admitting that I have had no clue about how to travel to D.W....but that's what I'm doing...God, I feel ignorant...

Been booking blindly for years...and then I stumble upon this great web site.

For those of you laughing...you have right. For those of you shaking you heads and saying prayer for this travel sinner...much thanks.

Now its time to really learn how to travel to Disney World. We'll be heading back in November...so any suggestions would be much appreciated.

In the interim, I will have each my family members give me a good swift kick. No doubt they will happily oblige!

I like to Welcome you to DISboards and say congratulations on finding the boards. There is no need to worry, we all started the same way as you did, but once you search all these posts, you can get an idea of what to do and where to go and what to see. But you've been to Disney World before, so it's nothing new, its just you may find different things that you may have had no clue about. Also, if you type up November in the search box, you'll find other families that may be going the same week and or even staying in the same place as you. DISboards is truly wonderful and I have learned alot from being on here each and every day, well since we've booked our trip for August. So once again, we welcome you and congratulations. Have a Magical Day.

WOW what a cool place!! We are planning our second trip to Disney World and appearently didn't know anything the first time!! AND this time we are traveling with some other families that is complicating our planning... plus we have some food allergies to contend with... and we just decided (yes spur of the moment is our style) to go this Spring Break (looking at April 10-16).

Whew I can tell I'll be busy reading for awhile on this site!!

Hi there! I'm new to the DIS boards, so I thought I post here first. I've been going to disney for years, but this is my first trip as an adult, without parents or school groups, so I've been obsessively planning things out since october. I am a medical student and am ready for a much needed break from northeast weather. I am so excited to re-live a bit of childhood and be back in disney at POR in 2 weeks!

I've been reading the DIS websites for more than 3 years and I can't believe the volume of information that is available. I needed info on an offsite property and made my first post three weeks ago; the DISers have been very supportive and responsive.

Glad to be part of the community. The support and direction is very helpful!

Hi folks,

Newer to DISBOARD and NEW DVD member...I want to add the pic that I'm an owner to my signature, but it doesn't have a URL, I want to upload it from my computer. How do I do that?
