Family planning a trip

    We have a Disney World vacation booked for mid-June. We have been able to get all the dining reservations we wanted in just the last couple of days. Too good to be true? Do you have any info or a "hunch" about what may be happening in June?

    Hi Lori!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    As much as I would also be gleefully jumping up and down at that kind of last-minute success, I believe your disbelief is wisely cautious. And, although I would love to speculate (with happy optimism), I would advise that you check the most up-to-date information on Walt Disney World operations. I would also check daily My Plans in My Disney Experience and, if nothing changes with your plans in My Disney Experience in the next week, call to speak to a Cast Member directly at 407-939-1936.

    I am typically a Plan A and Plan B thinker. In case we need to change our plans, we always have alternative dates in mind. We check the resort hotel and ticket prices, Special Offers, and airfare for alternative dates until we find dates that fit with our work or school schedules AND that are still within our budget. Having another option in trip dates allows us to stay hopeful while also being prepared for unavoidable changes to our travel plans.

    Although we have not had to cancel or re-book a reservation recently, I also take into account any fees associated with changing our flights. Those fees and/or the change in the flight prices to reschedule can put the trip out of our budget. Having said that, if you are flying, check the most up-to-date cancellation policies for the airlines and always call to speak to a representative. 

    Lori, with a little pixie dust, I trust your planning will lead to the most magical memories at the Walt Disney World Resort no matter when that might be!

    Magic and memories,
