    Hello, I have booked and paid in full a reservation for June 2022. It's our family's first trip to Disney so we are beyond ecstatic! My question is what happens next? Will I receive anything in the mail, or until I check in on the date of arrival?

    Oh Boy, Claudia!

    I am overjoyed with excitement and so incredibly happy to hEAR that you are booked and ready to visit.

    I know a little under a year seems like a long wait, but it will be here in no time. I do recommend adding a countdown calendar to your everyday life. My Mouseketeers enjoy changing the number each morning and talking about their upcoming visit.

    The next steps are adding your reservation to your My Disney Experience account and scheduling your Theme Park Reservations. Closer to your arrival, you can start the online check-in process as well. The only thing you will receive in the mail would be, if ordered, your MagicBands. Otherwise, keep an eye on your email and your My Disney Experience account for any other notifications you may receive. 

    Waiting truly is the hardest part. It seems like the days drag before a Disney vacation but please don’t worry. Before you know it, you will be on your way to a world full of Magic. The best part is, we are here to help answer any questions you may have until then, or even while you’re visiting.

    I do recommend taking a look at the dining locations. My family always plans to enjoy at least one Character meal each trip. Our most favorite is Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends at Topolino’s Terrace- Flavors of the Riviera. Mark your calendar because 60 days before your visit is when you can start scheduling Dining Reservations for you and your family.

    Have the most incredible visit and remember we’re all EARs!

Hi ya Pals! I'm Shantel from Arizona. I am a mom of two and a military wife. I grew up going to the parks, and now we're sharing that tradition with our kids. When I am not visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, I'm at home researching and planning for our next trip! One of my favorite things to do is search for new snacks to try, especially if they are Mickey shaped. I'm definitely living the dream my heart wished for!
