    Hi! This will be our first trip to Disney World. My husband and I have downloaded the Disney Experience App. I want to be the main planner and invited him to be able to share planning on the app. Was this the correct/best way to do it?

    Hello, Linda! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    It's a HUGE pleasure to help you plan your first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! As soon as you get there, you will not regret researching in advance. Planning is as fun as the trip itself and will make your days much more fun!

    Your approach to the My Disney Experience app is not only correct: it's the smartest approach possible! You will be able to make dining reservations for your family 180 days before your arrival, enjoying even greater benefits and booking privileges if you have a booking at a Disney Resort hotel. The app will also allow you to research and modify dining reservations very easily!

    The FastPass+ reservation process will be similar. That's what we do in our family, and we were always able to secure coveted attractions like Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park. I hope you're able to do the same soon!

    Since some dates are very strategic for your planning, I suggest making a reverse calendar with all the important milestones. My husband and I always have a few Disney appointments in our schedules so that we can act fast and strategically when it's time to do so! 

    If you have ANY questions about your upcoming trip, please, don't hesitate to come back. We will be here to guide you through every step of the way!

    We can help you choose the best ticket option, share some insights to help you create a plan for your dining reservations, and share our experiences with FastPass+ arrangements. 

    You've got Disney friends here to help you make your dreams come true, Linda! I hope we can make them happen together! 

    May the magic be with you,
