    Can I use a Disney planner to assist with selecting park reservations, restaurant reservations, etc if I have already booked our lodging and tickets?

    Welcome to planDisney, Ashley! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today. 

    Using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner is a great way to plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I have certainly used one before, and they are an excellent resource for taking some of those vacation planning tasks off your plate. Since they work independently, you will probably find that there are Authorized Disney Vacation Planners with varying policies about what they are willing to do for guests who have already booked their vacation themselves.

    With that in mind, I recommend that you get in contact with one if that's what you want to do! They will be able to tell you what their services are and what they can do for you. You can find Authorized Disney Vacation Planners with a quick internet search, but the best way is probably to ask your friends and family if they have a recommendation for someone you can work with. It's a good idea to chat with a few of them to find one that you click with and trust and ask if they're able to take on some of those vacation planning tasks even though you already have a vacation package booked. 

    Of course, I also want to remind you that making your own Disney Park Pass reservations, dining reservations, and other bookings can be done quickly and easily in the My Disney Experience app if you decide you want to do it yourself! All these reservations are flexible and can be made and modified at your convenience, so they're easy to manage on your own if that's what you end up deciding to do.

    Have a magical day, Ashley!
