Any chance your family can get away soon? The first two weeks in February are still "Value Season" at Disney World Resorts, and a good time to visit Walt Disney World
before the crowds start flocking for Presidents Week in mid-February, and then the start of March Break/ Spring Break.
For first-timers: Disney World is a giant destination, the size of Boston; take time to plan so you'll get the most from your trip. The good news is, the theme parks are not only fun they're beautifully realized; those who don't like Magic Kingdom may love the international pavilions around the Epcot lagoon, or the safari in Animal Kingdom, the beautiful resorts, the Broadway-quality stage shows...
Start with getting there: see tips for finding flights to Orlando. Then head to Top Tips for Visiting Disney World.
