    How early should I start planning a Disney World trip? My boyfriend and I are planning on going October 2022. Thanks!

    When it comes to a visit to Mickey and Minnie’s Florida home, it’s never too early to start planning! Welcome to planDisney, Mackenzie!

    The best place to begin planning a visit is to view the Disney Park Pass reservation calendar. This helpful planning tool shows Guests when the Disney Parks are both available and unavailable for reservations. You are planning so far in advance that the calendar is showing that all parks are currently available for October 2022!

    The next fun part of planning is to select a resort hotel! When visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, I want to stay in the magic! While there are many options, I always prefer a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection! Staying on property keeps you close to the Disney Parks! You also have access to complimentary transportation during your resort stay! I always like to recommend Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Coronado Springs - Gran Destino Tower, Disney’s Riviera Resort, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa!

    The other part of planning that I love is selecting which Disney Dining experiences we are going to enjoy! Some favorites are California Grill, Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria, Yak and Yeti Restaurant, Be Our Guest Restaurant, ‘Ohana, and Cape May Cafe! Start exploring all of your Disney Dining options now and make a wish list of your top choices!

    Mackenzie, start your planning by visiting the Walt Disney World Resort website to set up your My Disney Experience account! You can also download the My Disney Experience app to your mobile device! This account will help you keep track of all of your planning including your resort hotel, park tickets, park reservations, dining reservations, and more!

    Keep bringing questions to planDisney as you begin dreaming of your vacation! We’ll help you every step of the way on the journey to your happy place!
