    Authorized Disney Vacation Planner needed to plan 2024 trip for a 7 year old and the family

    Hi ya, pal, and welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for stopping by with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. You’ve come to the right place! Our planDisney team knows all the ins and outs of planning a Disney vacation and we love to help other Guests have a magical time on their vacations. We are here to share our heartfelt planning advice with you. So, ask away; we are ready to answer your questions with an extra dose of pixie dust mixed in!

    Now, you can book your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, dining reservations and Enchanting Extras Collection offerings directly from the Walt Disney World Resort website or contact one of the helpful Disney Resort Hotel Reservations Team Cast Members. I often give them a call to assist me! There is no charge to utilize their useful services. Be sure to ask about the special Kids (Ages 3 to 9) Play & Dine for 50% Off offer for most nights from March 3, 2024 through March 24, 2024, and April 7, 2024 through June 30, 2024 (subject to eligibility and availability).

    Seven is a fabulous age for a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth! At that age, my kids were ready for all the thrills of roller coasters and were equally as charmed by greeting all the Characters. They were ready to try new cuisines at the delicious dining locations that made the grown-ups happy, too. As a bonus, they were excited to help plan out our days by selecting their “must-do” attractions and snacks and loved to choose where to watch the parades and Nighttime Fireworks Spectaculars. I encourage you to make planning your vacation a family affair since planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is part of the fun and excitement!

    I have a few quick tips to help your planning go smoothly:

    1. Be sure to measure your child’s height (in the shoes they will wear during your trip) before the trip. Some attractions, like TRON Lightcycle / Run and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, have higher height requirements than most attractions. I wouldn’t want your young thrill seeker to be disappointed!

    2. I highly recommend building some downtime into your vacation! The theme parks have so much to offer, and so do the Disney Resorts Collection hotels. I’m sure your seven-year-old will appreciate a little pool time and enjoy activities around your resort hotel.

    3. Finally, check out this episode of the planDisney Podcast for more top tips for traveling with kiddos!

    I hope this information is helpful for your planning. Don’t forget, you can always write to us with questions you have about your vacation!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
