    My fiance and I have decided to go to WDW for our honeymoon and we are SO thrilled. Our wedding isn't until Fall 2009, but is there anything I should be doing, as far as planning, in the meantime? What are some of the "must-sees" for a honeymoon.

    There's so much planning to do with a wedding it may be tough to plan the honeymoon at the same time, so you're right to get a start on things early. I would invest in several good Disney guidebooks: the Unofficial Guide to WDW, Birnbaum's guide, and the Passporter guide are must-haves for any Disney traveler. You might also add the Luxury Guide to WDW if you're splurging. I would also order the free vacation planning DVD from the WDW website and subscribe to the newsletters at and After reviewing all this information, you'll be able to select your resort. You can book this up to 499 days in advance, and if you want something very particular, you should reserve as soon as possible. Bear in mind that the deluxe hotels have suites and concierge level rooms that can only be arranged at 407-W-DISNEY. Speak to a cast member at this number to book something extra-special.

    Other aspects of your trip, dining reservations for example, cannot be booked until 180 days prior to your vacation. But you can read all about the restaurants and make some lists of where you'll want to eat, so that when the time comes, you'll be ready.

    For the romance you'll want for the honeymoon, I suggest you look at ideas we've had on the Panel for other guests in similar situations. Click here, here, and here. One thing you'll want to be sure to do is pick up a free "Just Married" pin at the guest services desk at any of the theme parks. Other guests and cast members will be sure to offer their good wishes. You may even want to pick up Bride and Groom Mickey ears for even more attention.
