    When we cruised on Disney Cruise Line a DVD was mailed to us. I tried to order one now for Disney World but the link is no longer valid. Is this planning DVD still available?

    Hiya, Tonya.

    I’m so glad you stopped by planDisney today. Hooray for planning a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! You’ve come to the right place, and I’d be happy to help.

    Unfortunately, Walt Disney World Resort no longer mails out vacation planning DVDs or materials. Hakuna matata though, because everything you need to plan your magical vacation is available online! You can get started by visiting the vacation planning webpage, which gives an overview of the magical components that make up a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, but here is what you’ll want to start exploring:

    • First, peruse the Disney Resorts Collection hotels to decide on your home away from home for your stay. Value Resort Hotels are the most budget-friendly and over-the-top with their Disney theming. Moderate Resort Hotel rooms offer a bit more space and on-site amenities but are still more budget friendly. Deluxe Resort Hotels and Deluxe Villas are the cream of the crop when it comes to luxury. The rooms are spacious, and these Resorts offer a host of amenities you won’t find elsewhere.
    • Next, you’ll want to decide how many days you want to visit the theme parks during your trip and purchase the appropriate theme park tickets. If you want the ability to move from park to park each day, then you will want to consider adding on the Park Hopper Option.
    • Once you’ve purchased your tickets, you will then need to make Theme Park Reservations via the Disney Park Pass system for each day you plan on visiting a theme park.
    • Start exploring the plethora of dining options on property. You can make Advanced Dining Reservations for your vacation 60 days in advance, but it helps to know which restaurants you plan on dining at ahead of time. I suggest you also check out the Enchanting Extras Collection in case there’s anything that piques your interest. You can book many of these experiences at the 60 day mark as well.
    • Check out the pages for EPCOT, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park to discover all of the exciting attractions, entertainment, and Character Experiences that await you on your magical adventure. If you scroll all the way down, you will even see an option to download a Guide Map for each park on its respective webpage.
    • Finally, you should download the My Disney Experience Mobile App and get to know the ins-and-outs of how to use it. It’s truly your key to the magic and will streamline your vacation.
    Tonya, I hope this information helps. Please stop by planDisney again with further questions that pop up while planning your vacation, and let me know if I can clarify anything for you. I’m all EARs and happy to help!

    Until next time,
