    How to book tickets for stay and theme park?

    Welcome to planDisney, Niranjanamurthy! Planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is a fun and exciting process, with lots of decisions to make, but don’t get overwhelmed. Disney created MyDisneyExperience to assist Guests in booking the perfect vacation, from Disney Resorts Collection hotels to theme park tickets and even dining plan options!

    To start, you’ll want to ensure you have a Disney account. Visit the Walt Disney World website, hover over MyDisneyExperience, scroll to the bottom of the list and select Sign In or Create Account.

    Next you will want to do some research on which Disney Resorts Collection hotel you would like to call home, the type of ticket you would like to purchase, and whether or not you will be purchasing a Disney Dining Plan. 

    There are four Disney Resorts Collection categories to choose from: Deluxe Villas, Deluxe Resort Hotels, Moderate Resort Hotels, and Value Resort Hotels. Each category will offer different options to fit your style, budget, and proximity to your favorite park. My personal favorite is Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The Victorian style and walking path to the Magic Kingdom, make this resort the perfect combination of elegance and convenience.

    There are also four theme park ticket types to consider: Base Ticket (one park per day), Park Hopper Option (same day admission to all four parks), Water Park and Sports Option (one park per day plus visits to water parks and more), and the Park Hopper Plus Option (same day admission to all four parks plus visits to water parks and more).

    The two Disney Dining Plans being currently offered are the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan. The Quick-Service Dining Plan includes 2-Quick Service Meals (no table service meals) and 1 Snack/Nonalcoholic Drink per person, per night. It also includes 1 Resort-Refillable Drink Mug per person. The Disney Dining Plan includes 1 Table-Service Meal, 1 Quick-Service Meal, and 1 Snack/Nonalcoholic Drink per person, per night, and also 1 Resort-Refillable Drink Mug per person. With the Disney Dining Plan, you can also redeem your meals for special dining experiences, including Character Dining.

    Once you have chosen your resort, you should head to the Vacation Planning page. Here you will be walked through the process of booking your hotel room, choosing your theme park tickets, and picking a dinning plan, if you choose to purchase one.

    Once you have done all of the above you will be well on your way to enjoying your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Don’t forget to download the My Disney Experience app as well so you can take advantage of Disney Genie Service, MagicMobile Service, take advantage of Mobile Food Ordering, see your Disney PhotoPass photos, and much, much more! If you have any additional questions about planning your vacation, please come back to ask me directly, or submit another question to planDisney, and one of my amazing friends will be happy to help!
