    Hello! My sister and I have booked our first ever Disney trip for August 2023. We will be staying on site and it’s our first trip to the states! Disney has just announced the new dining offer. Do we qualify for this offer having booked so far in advance?

    Wow, a double whammy of excitement, Helen -  a first trip to the States and Walt Disney World! You will make so many unforgettable memories at Walt Disney World. I hope it's the start of many more adventures; I know it calls me back time after time, anyway. 

    From the UK, at the moment, I can see an offer that would apply to your travel time in August this year. The Power of Magic includes up to four free hotel nights and $200 Disney Spending Money

    Currently, you can modify your Walt Disney World Resort package anytime up to 7 days before your arrival date, so you can still try to apply a special offer to your trip. As this is your first trip from Britain, you may feel more comfortable talking with one of our Disney experts - please call 0800 028 0778. They can confirm what is available to you from the U.K. (different offers can apply to different regions) and help you achieve the best from your trip. I hope you find, as I always have, that Cast Members are a large part of what makes a Walt Disney World trip so magical from start to finish. 

    Don't forget to pick up a 'My first visit' badge. They're available from the front desk at Disney Resort Hotels or at various retail locations inside the Theme Parks. Special mention goes again to our Cast Members, who will recognise and celebrate this special inaugural trip with you.

    As it’s your first time heading to the U.S.A. please know that British nationals travelling under the Visa Waiver Programme (it’s what most British tourists travel under) must apply online via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) at least 72 hours before departure. 

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you will have some additional magic sprinkled on your holiday, giving you a little extra to spend on DOLE Whip®! If there is anything else you need, I'm here to help! Louise
