    My friend group is planning a Disney World trip for later this fall and we are wondering about your planning resources. Is there someone available we can give all of our information, budget, wishlists etc. to that can help us with the planning process?

    Hi Caitlin!

    Welcome to planDisney! You’ve started in the right place! Here at planDisney, we are a group of moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and everyday Disney vacation experts here to help answer your trip planning questions. While we are unable to plan your entire trip from start to finish within this format, we can help you answer specific questions as you make your plans. We can help recommend resorts, dining choices, popular attractions, or answer questions about how to navigate the theme parks.

    Caitlin, I would recommend you seek out the assistance of an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, as this sounds like what you are looking for. These are specially trained travel agents that can help you plan your trip from start to finish, and this sounds like what you are looking for. They can review your budget and wishlist, and help you search for special offers, book your room, theme park tickets, Disney Park Pass Reservations, and dining reservations.

    A quick search of your favorite browser should come up with multiple companies that offer these services. Be sure to choose an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, rather than a standard travel agent that works down the street or is a friend of a friend. Also, know that there is no charge to use their services! Many people incorrectly think that it costs more to book a trip with a travel agent, but it does not! Their services are free to you, and your trip will cost the same if you book yourself or through an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.

    Once you have connected with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner and are making decisions about your trip, submit questions to us here on planDisney! What are the best attractions that pack a thrill? Where do you find the famous DOLE Whip dessert? Which Disney Resort Collection Hotel do you recommend for a girls-only trip? What about a trip with pre-schoolers? Should we do two days at Epcot or just one? How does MagicMobile work?

    I also recommend reading through some of the previously asked questions and answers, Caitlin. You may see something you didn’t think of, or be inspired by other Guests’ questions!

    Looking forward to helping you as you plan your trip! You can submit questions to me, or the Panel in general, we are here to help!

    Happy Planning!
