    Who can I book my vacation with for free? I haven’t been to Disney since I was a teenager and I am coming back in August with my kids. I need lots of help/advice. Thanks!! Robyn.

    Hi Robyn,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted to hear that you are bringing your kids to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    First, if you are willing to do some research, you can make all of your own plans for free! Start with the Walt Disney World Resort website and search for resort hotels. Typically, the more affordable resort hotels are value resorts. Although I have enjoyed staying at several value resort hotels, my family prefers Disney's Deluxe and Deluxe Villa resort hotels because of the fabulous amenities they provide. 

    Check the Special Offers to see which vacation package might fit your budget. You can search different dates and try pricing different resort hotels. Also add your theme park tickets and check the prices of a dining plan. The Disney Dining Plan might be the best option for your family. It gives each person 3-years old and over in your party one quick-service entitlement and one table-service entitlement per night of your stay. When we use this plan, we usually use our quick-service entitlement for lunch and our table-service entitlement for dinner.

    Robyn, know that the parks can get quite crowded now, so I definitely suggest that you make dining reservations (especially for character meals) and Fast Pass+ selections. If you prefer to speak with a cast member to plan your trip, call 407-939-5277.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
