    Does My Disney Experience still count down the days until your trip? Me family and I loved logging on each day to see how many days were left until we started our wonderful Disney trip. We are going back to Disneyworld in a December and cannot wait!

    Hi Shirley,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. I'm so excited to hear you're counting down to a December visit – Walt Disney World is filled with a very special holiday magic at this most wonderful time of the year, and I know you will have the most merry and magical time.

    The current version of My Disney Experience does not offer a trip countdown option. Just like you, many of us are missing it and hoping it will return in a future update – lots of us are wishing pixie-dusted wishes, so keep checking when the app updates. In the past, it's been under the Resort section of your plans, along with your arrival date details.

    Most of my Disney friends have downloaded countdown apps on our phones to keep the countdown magic alive. There are plenty out there; simply search for apps and be careful to read reviews. The one I'm using allows me to add a photo, enter my arrival date, and create a caption. When I swipe over to the app, I can see how many days until I'm in my happy place.

    Shirley, when my family gets to 30 days from arrival, we create a paper chain of 30 links – one for each day until we leave. We split the links between us and then each of us writes inside each link one thing we're excited to do or try on our trip. Then, each day after dinner, we gather together and take one link from the chain and read what it says. It's so much fun! We save the links and make a scrapbook afterward, with photos or keepsakes connected to each link included. We love looking at these when we’re waiting for our next trip!

    Enjoy your Disney dreaming, and please come back and see us if we can answer any more questions. It’s always a pleasure!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
