    Where in My Disney Experience can you find the countdown until your trip?

    Hi, Katelyn!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    If I'm not currently visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, you can bet I'm counting down the days until my next trip to my happy place.  In the past, there was a trip countdown feature in My Disney Experience, but unfortunately, it is no longer available.  However, if you search "Disney vacation countdown" in the app store, you can find a handy vacation countdown app for your phone.

    While you are counting down the days until your magical vacation, don't forget that dining reservations can be made 180 days in advance.  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days before your arrival.  FastPass+ selections can be made 30 days in advance if you are staying elsewhere.

    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.

    While you are counting down the days until your vacation, if you think of any other planning questions, please visit us again.  Have a magical day!
