    What is the best way to plan and reserve a trip to WD World for the family? 6 adults two kids under 10. I am in the website but am getting confused when going from resorts to plans to dining, etc.

    Hi William!

    Planning a vacation is a big task. Planning a Walt Disney World vacation is a HUGE task, even for the most seasoned planner! There are so many things to consider when putting together vacation plans for a magical Walt Disney World Resort visit, and sometimes it helps to have a bit of guidance through the process. 

    There are several options when it comes to planning your Disney getaway. Guests can choose to build their own vacation by using the tools on the Walt Disney World Resort website and can use the "Chat" feature to have a Disney representative help navigate the site. The Chat feature is active between 7 AM - 11 PM EST, and the Cast Members are super helpful and can answer questions in real time. 

    Another way to plan your vacation is to call Walt Disney World Resort directly. You can get planning help with Reservations, Tickets, Resort Hotel and Theme Park Information. At this time, call volume is high, so if you choose to call and speak with a Cast Member about your vacation package, be prepared for possible longer-than-usual wait times. 

    My best advice is to reach out to an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. These pixie-dusted professionals provide practically perfect personalized planning (how's that for some alliteration?), and their services come at no cost to you! Authorized Disney Travel Planners are Disney-trained specialists that can help navigate Disney Park Pass reservations, help you decide which Disney Resorts Collection hotel best fits the needs of your travel party, make Advance Dining Reservations at your favorite restaurants, and help streamline your plans so your vacation days flow seamlessly. A simple Google search can help locate an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner near you. It's also a good idea to post on your social media for friends to share who they've used to plan a Disney vacation. There's no better way to find an amazing travel planner than from a recommendation from a satisfied customer!

    I hope this helps get you started with the planning process for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
