Wow! Your first family trip AND your first trip to Walt Disney World! What an exciting time for your family!
Each Walt Disney World Resort hotel and park is geared toward families with members of all ages, so no matter how you plan, there will be features that are just right for you.
First, take a look at this post regarding Traveling with Little Ones at Disney Theme Parks
. There, you'll find tips which will be especially helpful in planning your days with the toddlers in tow.
Next, consider your gang's favorite characters and plan accordingly. In Magic Kingdom, dine at The Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and Pals after enjoying Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, "it's a small world", Dumbo the Flying Elephant, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor, Peter Pan's Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid and Walt Disney World Railroad. Don't miss Main Street Electrical Parade, Celebrate the Magic and Wishes nighttime spectacular, too.
At Epcot, we let our kids play at Innoventions before heading to The World Showcase. There is so much to do here, so be sure to stop and enjoy the entertainment and dining options as you tour.
Disney's Animal Kingdom Park will surely be a favorite; don't miss Kilimanjaro Safaris, The Boneyard, It's Tough to Be a Bug, The Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo - The Musical and Rafiki's Planet Watch.
Disney's Hollywood Studios should include Muppet*Vision 3D, Toy Story Midway Mania!, Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage, Disney Junior - Live on Stage!, Star Tours, Voyage of The LIttle Mermaid and Fantasmic!
Send dates of your stay if you'd like help in planning each day, Deborah; it's so much fun to help Guests plan any stay. A first is truly SPECIAL!
