Hi there. We want to take our little girl to see The Castle and I've looked at Disney's website and just get lost. Since she is still so young we are hoping to do a 4 day trip that isn't all out crazy. Anyone know of a good travel agent or way to plan a "simple" Disney trip?

Just go to the local bookstore, pickup any of a dozen of WDW books and plan away.

My advice with the really small ones (under a year) is to stay ON GROUNDS so you can use the monorail or bus service (easy) and avoid having to drive in & out every day.

Buy a 4-day park hopper pass for each person in your party. Book a hotel near the parks. Plain and simple.

The Disney hotels cost more than a lot of the other ones in the area, but they make it a lot easier to get between your hotel and the parks, which can make a huge difference if you have little ones who can only do a few hours at a time before needing a break. A lot of the local hotels do have shuttle services to the parks, but typically only at a few set times per day.

+1. Definitely stay on the grounds. It also makes leaving for naps and coming back later much easier.

Make sure you plan out what popular rides you want to get on and get your fast passes as soon as you can. I don't know how young your daughter is, but you can do a baby swap also if you and your husband want to do big rides.

have fun!

We went through Mann Travels...they were great and seemed to know more about Disney than Mickey knows! ALOT of great deals out there last month for travel this month....not sure when you want to go. With the deals Disney have out there I think it is cheaper to stay on property...you don't have to pay to park each day and you have access to the Disney transportation system which takes you everywhere you need to go.

Another benefit of staying in a Disney hotel is that each park has extended hours on a particular day for people staying on Disney property (i.e. you can get into the park an hour early if staying in a Disney hotel). You can avoid some crowds then.
