    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christine!

    How exciting that you already have your flight booked for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I get giddy with anticipation every time I have another element of our trip planned.

    You can book your vacation package now, and I definitely encourage you to do it soon! You will have more rooms to choose from at the Disney Resort hotels the sooner you book and you will get to take advantage of the many benefits that come with a stay at a Disney Resort hotel. One of my favorite perks is the ability to make Advance Dining Reservations 180 days prior to your check-in date for the entire trip, up to 10 additional days! This helps you snag those hard-to-get dining reservations like Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park and California Grill at the top of Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    If you are worried that you will miss out on a special offer or discount by booking early, don't be! Keep your eyes on the Special Offers and if you see one that pertains to the dates and Disney Resort hotel of your travel, simply call a Cast Member at (407) 939-5277 and they will assist you in applying the offer that best works with your vacation.

    You will love Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! I have such sweet memories of my son dressed up as Buzz Lightyear, collecting candy around Magic Kingdom Park. Make sure you do not miss the Boo-To-You Halloween Parade. It's one of the best parades in my opinion! The dates for the Party are typically released around April, so keep a watch on the Disney Parks Blog for more information. Enjoy your trip!
