    Is there a checklist for before leaving for our trip for example book Magic Express, make fast pass reservations, food reservations etc.... I will be leaving soon and I feel like I am forgetting something. Thanks!

    Hey Jessica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Mom Panel! Thank you so much for bringing us your question. You must be so excited for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World.

    I completely understand wanting a checklist to make sure you are remembering all the nuances of your upcoming vacation. There are several great planning tools online. The first is the free Planning DVD offered by Walt Disney World. This will give you tours of all the theme parks, pocket-sized planning guides, planning tips, and information on special events. Another great planning tool is the trip planning checklist offered by the Disney Divas (

    I also suggest searching Google for 'Disney Planning Checklists'. There are so many out there to view and each is slightly different. You should note, most of the online checklists have not been updated to include information regarding Disney's FastPass+ service. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort you can begin making your FastPass+ selection 60 days in advance. If you are staying off-property and have your park tickets linked in your My Disney Experience account you can begin making your selections 30 days in advance.

    I hope this helps your planning. If you have any other questions please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a magical vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
