    never been to Disney need help booking everything

    Welcome to planDisney, John! You've come to the right place!

    Think of me (and my fellow panelists) as the Fairy Godmother to your Cinderella, the Maui to your Moana, the Philoctetes to your Hercules, the Zazu to your Mufasa… well... you get the idea. We are here to help and I couldn’t be more excited that you’re planning your first trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth

    Since this is your first time, there are a few places to begin. If your travel time and budget allow, I recommend staying on property at a Disney Resort Hotel. There is nothing quite like being immersed in the Magic from sun up to sundown. There are quite a few choices including value, moderate and deluxe accommodations. John, once you’ve selected a Disney Resort Hotel, you can book your stay online or you can call into the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations. John, since it’s your first trip, I hope you're able to visit each of the theme parks! While I have my favorite, each is unique with “must-do” attractions. If you love classic Disney Movies like Snow White or Peter Pan, Magic Kingdom Park is sure to make you feel like a kid again. If your heart lies with the Resistance and you want to live your Star Wars adventure, don't miss Disney's Hollywood Studios. Once you've made a decision, I recommend bundling your tickets with your hotel to create a “package.” Again, this can be booked online or by phone. 

    Now, let's chat about the Disney Park Pass system. While the Walt Disney World is still in its phased reopening with enhanced health and safety measures, you will need a reservation to enter the park. You can check availability HERE before finalizing your ticket purchase. If you haven’t yet done so, make sure to create a My Disney Experience account. This online platform will connect your tickets, hotel reservations and more to streamline your vacation. You can even download the handy My Disney Experience Mobile App!

    John, once your trip is booked, I hope you’ll come back to planDisney with a lot more questions. My fellow panelists and I love to talk about dining recommendations, our favorite shows and of course... where to find the famous DOLE Whip®.
    Best wishes John! As Mickey himself likes to say, we'll "see ya real soon!”
