    We are a family of 3 ( son 13) and planning our first trip to Disney in January. We've been when he was around 2 and so much has changed. I don't even know where to begin. Also we are a law enforcement family does Disney offer any special rates?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy! We’re so glad to see you here!

    How exciting to be planning your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation in quite some time! There have been so many great changes that I don’t even think I will have enough space to tell you about it all! I would say that the biggest change would be MyMagic+, which encompasses everything from FastPass+ Reservations, My Disney Experience, and the My Disney Experience mobile app, MagicBand, the Disney PhotoPass service and more! You now have the ability to make 3 FastPass+ Reservations up to 60 days in advance when staying at a Disney Resort hotel, or 30 days ahead of time when staying at an alternate location! Also, making Advanced Dining Reservations is now more common than not, and this can be done up to 180 days in advance, I strongly suggest doing so. I often suggest that Guests who haven’t visited in a long time or who are visiting for the first time use the help of a trusted Travel Agent, who often do not cost any extra! Also, there are some great online planning videos which will give you an idea of the newest Attractions! Speaking of new Attractions,  Flight of Passage over in Pandora- The World of Avatar is not to be missed! Another great resource is the Disney Parks Blog who shares the latest and greatest news about Walt Disney World Resort.

    As for the second part of your question, at this time, there are Military Discounts for Park Tickets, but I do not believe there are any for law enforcement. There are, however, some pretty great Special Offers available to the general public from time to time!

    I hope you have a magical vacation and please stop by again!
