    How can I get the countdown to our Disney vacation? I thought it would be on My Disney Experience but it's not. Thanks!

    Hi, Miguel!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    If I am not at the Walt Disney World Resort, then you can be sure I'm counting down the days until my next visit. Besides being a fun way to look forward to an upcoming vacation, counting down the days until your trip also has some practical uses. Your Walt Disney World Resort dining reservations can be made 180 days before your arrival. Also, you can make your FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to arrival if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or 30 days before your trip if you are staying elsewhere. For these reasons, it is a good idea to keep track of the number of days until your magical vacation.

    At one time, there was a vacation countdown that could be viewed when you logged into your My Disney Experience account; however, this feature is not currently available. If you search "Disney vacation countdown" in the app store, you can find various vacation countdown apps for your phone that can help you count the days until your next Dole Whip or Mickey ice cream bar.

    In my household, we like to have a little celebration when we reach 30 days until our next Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I usually make some type of Mickey-shaped treat for my kiddos to eat and surprise them with a little gift from shopDisney like t-shirts, autograph books, or gift cards to use for vacation souvenirs. It's a fun tradition that lets the magic begin before we have even left home.

    If we can answer any additional questions for you as you count down the days until your vacation, please visit us again.  See ya real soon!
