    Can you guys point me in the right direction on where to start and what to to get the planning started or is there a trip coord. that can guild me in the planning process. We have 2 girls and one is developmentally disabled, this is a dream of hers. Help!

    Welcome to planDisney, Brandi! Rest assured, we are here to help you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort family vacation. 

    Your first task is to think about how many days you would like to spend in the Theme Parks. I recommend no less than five days; this includes spending one day each at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and Disney's Animal Kingdom, and two full days exploring Magic Kingdom Park. If you wanted to stay even longer, the longest stay my family has had was eight days in the parks, and we never ran out of things to do!

    After a long day of making memories together in the parks, you will need somewhere to recharge. There are three levels of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to fit your budget; Value, Moderate, and Deluxe. I have stayed at several different locations in each of the three categories. My family and I have never been disappointed! You can view theming, amenities, pools, and dining for every option by viewing each Disney Resort Hotel online and viewing each tab. I know there are so many choices! If you need help narrowing it down, feel free to visit us with any questions.

    Once you have decided where you will spend your nights and for how long, I recommend looking at the Disney Park Pass Availability Calendar to ensure the Theme Parks you wish to visit are available on your chosen days. If all looks good, you are ready to book your Vacation Package! Once you are all booked, you will need to link your Vacation Package to your My Disney Experience account. You can easily and quickly create an account if you don't already have one. Once everything is all linked to your account, you can make your Theme Park reservations using the Disney Park Pass System.  

    Walt Disney World Resort strives to make sure all guests have the most magical experience possible, including special services for Guests with Disabilities. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your visit, you can contact Disability Services before your arrival. 

    Brandi, while you are reading all about everything Walt Disney World Resort has to offer, be sure also to check out the Know Before You Go page for information. Here you will find updates to policies and procedures and learn how Walt Disney World Resort is helping to keep you and your family safe during the current worldwide pandemic. 

    As you review all the information above, I am sure you will have additional questions. Brandi, please "Be Our Guest" and visit us here at planDisney as many times as you would like - we are happy to help!
