    We have booked direct with WDW including flights from the UK for November 2023. When can I get a reference so that I can upgrade flight seats? Is it not until we have paid in full? TIA x

    Welcome to planDisney Christine! I am so excited for you to embark on your November trip to Walt Disney World. We have had great experiences booking directly with the Walt Disney Travel Company from the U.K. too!

    Once the booking is made with the correct deposit payment, the lead guest should receive an email with an invoice attachment that lists all the travel arrangements specified in your package. It will also contain a unique reference number. Should you wish to amend any part of your package - such as flights - you can contact the Disney experts from the U.K. by calling 0800 16 90 730, quoting that booking reference. In my experience, these experts go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. 

    Christine, it will need to be the listed lead passenger that makes the changes, and, once completed, you will receive an updated invoice email.

    Please remember that British nationals travelling to the U.S.A. under the Visa Waiver Programme must apply online via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) at least 72 hours before departure. 

    Another tip is to download the My Disney Experience App well ahead of your arrival. It's the source of many magical moments at Walt Disney World including dining reservations, Mobile Food and Beverage orders within the Parks, and ride wait times. Familiarising yourself with the My Disney Experience App not only helps you to hit Main Street U.S.A. running but also gives you time to field out any questions before your trip.  

    Please do let me know if you need anything else to make your November 2023 Walt Disney World trip the best it can be! Louise
