    We are coming in December and have not made reservations for anything besides accommodations. What specific things do we need reserve? We have an 8 year old son and an 11 year old daughter

    Hi Danielle,

    How exciting that in a few weeks you'll be able to join the celebrations during the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. It is my favorite time of the year to visit, when the Resort dresses up for the occasion with colorful decorations, Christmas trees, and special events all around.

    Guests can make advanced FastPass+ reservations 30 days in advance per day, for up to three of their favorite attractions. This will let you skip the lines and have more time for fun. But one of the excellent Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefits is that you can make these up to 60 days in advance, giving you a leg up for the best time slots.

    Another way to enjoy family time, is with a nice meal at one of the many restaurants. From character meals, to fine dining, I'm sure you'll find something that everyone will enjoy. A favorite for my family is Teppan Edo, in the Japan pavilion in Epcot. You can make advance dining reservations up to 180 days in advance.

    One last tip: the My Disney Experience mobile app is the best way to manage all details of your vacation. Make sure you download it and, let's keep on planning!
