    My family and I are wanting to plan Christmas at Disney World with the dates 12/23-12/28/21. I am having some trouble finding places to stay, and am getting all sorts of lost when I try. Is someone able to help me plan this trip?

    Hi Gina,

    Thanks for stopping in to see us here at planDisney!

    Celebrating the spirit of the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort always makes for a merry and magical vacation. Over the years, we've enjoyed many holiday season stays, and those stays are always among our most cherished Disney memories.

    Gina, if you're open to selecting and booking your own Resort reservations, I'm happy to offer a few helpful tips. If you'd like to speak with a Cast Member for assistance in booking your selections, you can contact the Walt Disney World Resort at (407)-934-7639 or chat with a Cast Member online.

    Another option you might want to consider is to do a quick website search for an "Authorized Disney Vacation Planner" and choose a travel agent who has earned that special distinction and who can offer fee-free services to help you plan and book your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    If you're open to selecting and booking your own Resort reservations, you can begin by getting a quick view of the Disney Resorts Collection accommodations. You'll see there are so many magical choices, from Resort hotel rooms to Disney Story Rooms to Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts for larger travel parties.

    You can begin to search for accommodations and book reservations with the "Explore Resort Hotels" search feature where you can enter your travel dates and travel party information. If you and your family will be booking multiple room reservations, you'll want to do each search and booking separately if you're booking online.  

    After you select your Resort stay accommodations, you'll see you can choose to book a room-only reservation, or a package that includes both your Resort stay and theme park tickets. The booking steps will guide you to select the number of days you want to visit the theme parks, and select your theme park ticket options. For example, theme park ticket options could include the Park Hopper Option to visit more than one theme park in a day, and the Disney Genie+ service to help you get the most out of your theme park visit by purchasing arrival time windows for attractions.

    If you are planning to purchase theme park tickets, it's helpful to look at the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar first as a way to see which theme parks have reservations available for the days you want to visit. After you book your vacation package with theme park tickets or purchase your theme park tickets, you can then link your reservations and tickets to your My Disney Experience account and make theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass system

    Gina, I hope these planning and booking tips are helpful as you put together your very merry Disney holiday stay.

    Here's wishing you lots of Disney magic in your day!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
