First-timer report with lots of bells and whistles – PREP139

by Shannon Albert 7 comments Like the Facebook page

Today I have a new trip report from a first-time planner which includes lot of extra options that many of us don't get to do so it's fun to hear how that worked out on this December trip.

I also have a quick tip for families planning to use a stroller during their trip.


These are notes from this episode. There's much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Gina's trip report

Gina and her family (including her parents, husband, and children) traveled just after Thanksgiving. Their trip plans included staying Club Level at the Boardwalk Inn, a VIP tour guide, Memory Maker, Free Dining, some character meals, dessert parties, Candlelight Processional dining package, Universal, and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

Gina recommends the Birnbaum's Walt Disney World For Kids book to help prep children before their trip. They also had a good experience using a car service to get from the airport to their resort.

Quick tip of the day

Another reader named Gina suggests that people using a stroller during their trip who are worried about valuables being stolen consider packing 2 bags - 1 with valuables and 1 with other items. When the stroller is parked, just take the bag with your valuables in it.
