    If I book my vacation directly thru the website, is that considered booking thru the Walt Disney Travel Company?

    Greetings Robin! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your planning question. We're always happy to help.

    As far as I'm concerned, the only thing better than actually being on a Walt Disney World vacation is planning one! For my family, choosing our resort hotel, reserving dining, and selecting FastPass+ is part of the fun. Robin, if you choose to book your magical vacation directly through the Disney website, then YES, you are booking through the Walt Disney World Travel Company. If you prefer to speak directly with a Cast Member and book your vacation over the phone, call 407-939-5277.

    Once your vacation package is secured, the fun can really begin! You'll want to mark some important planning dates on your calendar. Advanced dining reservations can be made up to 180 in advance of your check-in date. As a guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you are eligible to select FastPass+ experiences up to 60 days prior to your stay. You can even check-in to your resort online and go directly to your resort room upon arrival. And don't forget to customize those MagicBands! They add some personalized style to your theme park outfit. As you can see there is plenty to keep you busy even before your vacation begins.

    Robin, I see that you are lucky enough to live in the Sunshine State. Did you know that there are special Walt Disney World offers just for Florida residents? You might want to explore some of the options to see if any work for your family.

    I wish you all the best in planning your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth! Enjoy every minute of it, and come back and see us if more questions come throughout the process.

    Let the memories begin!
