    Can anyone help me plan a Disney vacation??

    Hello Faith,

    It sounds like there's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow coming your way, and it's bringing with it a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    If you're open to learning a bit about how to book your own Disney vacation, I'm happy to share some tips and links that you might find helpful.

    If you're looking to work with someone who can do the planning and booking for you, you might want to look into working with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. You can do a quick website search for that phrase ("Authorized Disney Vacation Planner"), and you'll discover travel agents who have earned that special distinction for their expertise in booking Disney destination vacations and who can offer free-to-you services to put together your vacation package. 

    Before you get started with booking your vacation, it's helpful to know that you'll need both theme park admission and a theme park reservation to visit a theme park. You can use the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar to see the theme parks that have reservations available to select. 

    A great place to begin your own planning and booking is to get to know the Disney Resorts Collection. There are many wonderful options for a magical stay, including Resort hotel rooms, Disney Story Rooms, Family Suites, and Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts. You can also check out @planDisneyPanel on Instagram to see the planDisney Pocket Guides that can give you a quick and helpful view of the Disney Resort Collection hotels.

    You can use the "Start Planning Your Disney Vacation" tools to explore Resorts by entering your check in and check out dates and your travel party information. You'll see the Disney Resort Collection hotels with offers. You'll be able to book a room-only reservation, or a vacation package that includes tickets.  

    After you select your accommodations, you'll be prompted to add theme park tickets to your package. You can select the number of days you want to visit the theme parks, and the theme park ticket options like the Park Hopper Option (to visit more than one theme park in a day) and the Disney Genie+ service (to get suggestions for your theme park days, and to choose attraction arrival windows).

    With your vacation package booked, you can then link your vacation package to your My Disney Experience account, and then you can use the Disney Park Pass system to make your theme park reservations. 

    If you'd like some additional help as you go, you can always call the Walt Disney World Resort at (407)-934-7639 to speak with a Cast Member who can assist you. You can also chat with Cast Members using the online chat service.

    Faith, there's always so much to see, do, and experience in a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Enjoy a magical stay!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
