    77 days tll our adventure1 I just made the final payment. Now what? We are Canadian but flying out of buffalo using the magical express option. Since this is our first time plaaning any trip let alone Disney, what happens next?

    Hi Tara,

    Congratulations on successfully planning your first Disney vacation!  I get giddy when I think about how much fun your family is going to have in a little over two months.  Woo-hoo!  I'm going to warn you though; once you've been to Walt Disney World, you're likely to be bitten by the Disney vacation bug and will certainly want to return. 

    Have you made advance dining reservations for the table service restaurants you'd like to try during your vacation?  If not, call (407) WDW-DINE today to make your reservations. If you need suggestions for good places to eat, just post a follow-up question to the Moms Panel and we'll be happy to make recommendations.  Be sure to note what types of cuisine you enjoy.

    If your final payment has been made, just hold onto your confirmation number and await your mailing from Disney's Magical Express.  Approximately one month before your departure, you'll get a lovely envelope containing your luggage tags.  Put these on your bags before you check them at the Buffalo airport.  The next time you see them, they'll be waiting for you in your Disney resort room.  Pretty cool, huh?

    And finally, ten days before your check-in date, you can check in online.  This is not required and I frequently just wait and check in upon arrival but you are welcome to take advantage of online check-in if you so desire.

    So, enjoy the delightful anticipation leading up to your trip!  I'll be sending pixie dust your way in the hopes that it will be the most magical vacation you've ever experienced.

    Best wishes,
