    Where do I go to plan a trip? I just want to pick dates, a hotel, and our passes but I can’t find where I can do that.

    Hello Jessica! You came to the right place to get started with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning!

    You’ll want to begin your planning on the Walt Disney World Resort website. Once you arrive at the site, you’ll see a heading that reads, “My Disney Experience.” Click it and follow the prompts to set up your My Disney Experience account! From hotel reservations, to park tickets, and everything in between, this account will help keep track of all of your vacation plans.

    Next, you’ll want to visit the Disney Park Pass calendar! This helpful planning tool shows Guests when the Disney Parks have availability! Select a vacation timeframe in which the parks you are most excited to see have availability!

    Once you’ve got your My Disney Experience account started and you’ve selected your vacation dates by looking at the Disney Park Pass calendar, it is time to select a hotel! I love “staying in the magic” so I always recommend a stay at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection! On the website, you’ll see a heading that reads, “Places to Stay.” Hover (don’t click) your mouse over that heading and a dropdown menu of resort options will appear! Begin exploring the many options available! I recommend you check Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort - Gran Destino Tower, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa! But there are plenty of other options too!

    Jessica, when you are selecting a resort hotel you will also be able to select whether you want to book just a room reservation or a room and theme park ticket package! Follow the prompts to make your selections!

    This is enough planning to get the fun started, but planDisney will want to help you as you continue dreaming of your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth!
