    we just booked our entire trip through walt disney world's website, including our flights. how do we find information about our flights such as seat selection, and baggage details? is there extra fees for that, or was it already included in our booking?

    Hello Ryan! Last fall was the first time I had booked everything, including flights, through the Walt Disney World website. I understand it can be confusing, it is quite a lot of information to handle. When you book a flight through the Walt Disney World website you should get a confirmation number. You will have to go to the website of the specific Airline to view additional information like baggage policies, prices, and seat selection information. Walt Disney World does not provide specific details on flights, you will have to go to find out that information through the Airline. I do not know which airline you booked through, so I unfortunately cannot give you any specific help in that area.

    Last fall I believe I flew through Southwest Airlines and the first two checked bags are free. Baggage fees are not included when you book a flight through Walt Disney World. You should be able to find out how much you will have to pay in baggage fees on the Airline's website. Also, I paid extra money in advance for reserved seats to have my party of three sit together. I was traveling with my child and didn't want to risk being separated. I think that  some Airlines offer seat numbers in advance, and some do not. In the case that they do not offer seat numbers in advance, you can either pay to have a reserved seat, or you can pick a seat upon check in at the airport. I like to know seating arrangements in advance so I opt to pay a little extra in this scenario.

    If you go to the Airline's website and still cannot find the information you need, I would give them a call. Keep your flight confirmation number handy in case they need it.

    If you need anything else, please let us know. Have a magical day, Ryan!
