    First trip with little kid! Should I use the Disney planning service or a separate Disney trip planner? What are the differences?

    Hi there, Annie! Welcome to planDisney, and thank you so much for bringing us a great question! I am so happy to hear that you will soon be taking your first Walt Disney World vacation with your little one! This is a momentous occasion and one that deserves some advance planning to make it as unforgettable as it can be. There are several ways to plan your getaway. Here at planDisney, we love to help with any and all aspects of your plans. We often point our Guests to the planDisney video library, where you will find inspiration and advice from our amazing panelists, including many videos regarding top highlights for the younger Mousketeer! You can also ask us to plan any aspect of your trip or make suggestions along the way. First trips, and trips with smaller children, are our specialty and passion around here! Just check out this page on the Walt Disney World website with recommended attractions for little ones. 

    In contrast, the services of a certified Disney Travel Planner are complimentary, and you may find that this is an excellent option for you! I’ve used one for many of my past trips and have always been incredibly happy with the services. The travel planners make the trip reservations for you, and sometimes they assist with planning and booking of experiences. You may find that, if you have not visited many times in the past, you may enjoy this option to streamline your travels. 

    Annie, I hope that this information helps you continue to plan your dream trip with your littlest love! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us anytime we can help with your plans. It would be our pleasure to see you back here again.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
