    Where can I go to access the Walt Disney Resort planning/pocket guides?

    Hi there, Andrea, and welcome to planDisney!

    My husband and I are currently discussing which Disney Resort hotel we'd like to call our magical home away from during our next Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Isn't it such a fun stage of the planning? I'm pulling for Disney's Wilderness Lodge while he's firmly on 'Team Gran Destino Tower' at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. We'll see who wins! 

    In our discussions, we have referred to the helpful planDisney Pocket Guides you mentioned because they give such a well-rounded picture of all that many of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels have to offer. Typically, you can find these planDisney Pocket Guides for Disney Resort hotels here under 'Panel Extras' on the planDisney website or conveniently linked through planDisney's Instagram. However, while working on the answer to your question I noticed that the links I just mentioned currently direct you to the Disney Parks Blog main page instead of a particular Pocket Guide. I'm not sure why this is happening, but it might have something to do with the recent redesign of the Disney Parks Blog. Have you seen it? It looks incredible and is so easy to navigate! You can now conveniently find planDisney resources by selecting 'PLAN' from the heading at the top of the screen. While it seems that the planDisney Pocket Guides are currently unavailable through the Disney Parks Blog, my wonderful planDisney Podcast partner Nimmy helpfully linked several of the Pocket Guides as PDFs while answering a previous question that you can still access here! Teamwork makes the (once upon a) dream work, am I right?

    As a bonus tip: Did you know that planDisney recently launched a new Resort Guide video series that kicked off with Disney's Beach Club Resort? My pals Amy and Matt helpfully walk (and slide!) you through public areas, rooms, restaurants, pools, and amenities providing the perfect visual complement to our Pocket Guides!

    I hope this was helpful in directing you to the information you needed, Andrea. If not, feel free to stop back by, and we will continue the search! Hakuna Matata! I'm always happy to help.

    Thinking Happy Thoughts,
