    How do I begin planning my trip? I have a hotel reservation and 7 days of park tickets for 4 people.

    Hello, Deborah! With a hotel reservation and seven days of Disney Parks tickets already booked you are ahead of the game! 

    There are a few more planning steps that I would prioritize for you! First, with seven days of theme park tickets you have really ensured a great visit! You should decide now which parks you want to visit on the specific dates of your vacation. Once you have done that you need to reserve those days at the parks using the Disney Park Pass reservation system. There is a short, but helpful video of exactly how to do this on the Walt Disney World Resort website! Make sure you have your My Disney Experience account set-up prior to making your Disney Park Pass reservations.

    The next thing you should do is start to explore the delectable Disney Dining options available to you! Making advanced reservations for Disney Dining experiences is a must right now! Guests can begin making their reservations 60-days prior to their vacation arrival date! You have given yourself plenty of time to look at the options and decide where you want to dine! Once you've made up your mind on where to dine, be sure to be on the Walt Disney World Resort dining reservations page, or the My Disney Experience app, at 6:00AM on your 60-day mark! Make those reservations!

    Deborah, while there are many great dining experiences, some of my family's favorites are Be Our Guest Restaurant, Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria, 'Ohana, and Yak and Yeti Restaurant! I'm getting hungry just writing this answer!
