    I just booked our first family trip to Disney World and my baby girl's first trip abroad. I saw many post saying we can let Disney knows it's our first trip. How do we do that? To whom do I send this information? Thanks.

    Hi Joan,

    A first trip to Disney World is always super exciting!  If you made your reservations through Disney World or an authorized Disney Travel Agent, they should have asked and noted if you were celebrating anything special during your trip.  If not, call back and have them make a note of it.

    Anytime you make reservations for dining or other special experiences, the Cast Members typically ask if you're celebrating anything special and will make a note on those reservations as well.

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, they will ask or you can tell them that you are celebrating your first visit when you check-in.  They will give your family "1st Visit" buttons to wear during your trip.  That will sometimes bring it to the attention of Cast Members throughout the resort and theme parks and you never know what spontaneous magical moments will happen.

    Please feel free to visit us as often as you'd like during your planning.  It is our pleasure to assist you in answering your questions so that your first trip to the most magical place on Earth is smooth and filled with happiness.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
