    Hi, do I have to be a disney+ subscriber to plan a trip to disney world?

    Greetings, Chinyeaka!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so delighted to hear that you are planning a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! This is an incredible year to visit. The World's Most Magical Celebration is still going strong and offers EARidescent excitement throughout all four theme parks. You will find beautiful Beacons of Magic, dazzling nighttime spectaculars, and some exciting new attractions, including Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. I am sure you are so excited to make your visit official, so let's tackle that question!

    Guests planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort do not need to be Disney+ subscribers, Chinyeaka. So, Hakuna Matata, you can plan your visit with no subscription necessary. It is worth noting that there occasional exclusive offers for Disney+ subscribers that offer a considerable discount on Walt Disney World Vacation packages. You may find that the savings these promotions offer offset the cost of adding Disney+ as a streaming service for your Ohana. So, if you are a big fan of Disney entertainment like myself, you may wish to consider this option. You will have the magic of Disney at the click of the button anytime, and save on your next big adventure!

    Speaking of your upcoming adventure, if you plan on traveling this July I would encourage you to make your Disney Park Pass reservations as soon as you book your vacation package or purchase tickets. All four theme parks require a reservation in addition to a valid theme park ticket, and some dates may offer limited availability due to popularity. Pro tip: You can check the availability of your favorite parks before you purchase your tickets. This is a great way to make sure your top pick is an option for the days you are considering for your magical stay. 

    We hope to see ya real soon!
