    What is the best way to plan a Disney vacation

    Hello Angela, and welcome to planDisney!

    You have come to the right place, and I want to congratulate you on starting the early planning process. You will find the entire process enjoyable, and that it will yield some beautiful results. 

    The first step in starting the planning process is to develop a budget that will work for you. After that, you will want to have an idea of the dates you would like to visit, and having 2 to 3 timeframes in mind will help. Once you have those dates in mind, the real fun of the planning process begins. You will want to add some research to your plans because you have choices regarding resorts, theme park tickets, dining, and some wonderful experiences from the Enchanting Extras Collection. After the dates are locked in and you have decided on your resort and theme park ticket dates, I recommend making your reservations once the dates are available to ensure that you have everything in place. You can use a local travel agent to assist you or complete the reservation process (on your own) online using the Walt Disney World Resort website. Don’t forget; you will have the planDisney panel to answer any questions you may have. 

    Please be sure to let us know how we can assist you further. 

    Have a magical day!
