    hi there my family and I haven't been to Disney since 2015. I was wondering should we go to WDW this summer or wait until the 50th anniversary has begun?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jill!

    Thank you for stopping by with a great question. It is a pleasure to assist you as you plan a Disney vacation!

    There is so much to see and do at the Walt Disney World Resort that Guests can always enjoy a magical stay no matter when they visit. However, since you have not visited in a while, I recommend waiting until The World’s Most Magical Celebration has begun. This 18-month event will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort with dazzling decorations, exciting adventures, and magical touches at all four theme parks, including the debut of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT. I also hope with all my heart that the current situation we are going through starts getting better soon and that new updates and announcements are made, especially regarding the return of Disney Dining Plans, character meet and greet opportunities, dining experiences and events that are currently paused, and more. I am already planning a visit for next year, and I cannot wait to find out more about Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, which launches in 2022 at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    If you are ready to start planning, I highly recommend contacting Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936 to book your Disney vacation package including theme park tickets and a stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. If you decide to Be Our Guest, you will find yourself immersed in the magic during your stay and enjoy benefits like proximity to the theme parks and complimentary transportation. Although Disney Dining Plans are currently not available, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future announcements. Once they return, Disney Resort hotel Guests will be able to add a dining plan to their reservations.

    I hope this information is helpful, Jill! Check out our Panel Extras for more tips and advice, and come back to visit us if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help.

    Best magical wishes,
