    can you help me plan my disney vacation?

    Hi Sergio!

    Here at planDisney we can help you plan your Walt Disney World vacation. In fact, we LOVE to help plan Disney vacations!

    Your first step is to open an My Disney Experience account. Here you can link hotel, park and dining reservations, and tickets. One place to see and manage your itinerary is vital. I tend to make my reservations online on a desktop, then refer to the app on my phone while at Walt Disney World.

    Next up, theme parks! Currently to visit a theme park, you will need a valid admission and a Disney Park Pass Reservation. Before you purchase your tickets, check the Theme Park Availability Calendar to make sure the dates you want are open. Once your tickets are purchased, book a park for each day. My family absolutely has to have Magic Kingdom as our first park, but some like to visit here last as a grand finale.

    Ticket choices include Standard Tickets and Park Hoppers. Standard passes grant you one park per day while Park Hoppers allow you to visit multiple parks in a day. If you are planning a two day visit, for example, and want to enjoy all four parks, a Park Hopper is the way to go.

    Of course, you need a place to enjoy sweet, pixie dusted dreams. Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort allows you to immerse yourself in the Disney experience. The convenience of these hotels also allows you to take a midday nap or pool break! Free transportation, fun, whimsical pools, and starting in October, early access to the parks, are perks you only get from the mouse. I find the dorm size refrigerators for my Diet Coke supply and in-room coffee pots for that morning cup invaluable. Value Resorts to Deluxe Villas allow for a wide range of budgets.

    For a character, castle, or any table service meal, you will need dining reservations. You may begin booking restaurants 60 days in advance. Choices range from a three course French inspired dinner in the Beast's Castle at Be Our Guest to African-Indian cuisine while you gaze at giraffes, gazelles and zebras out your window at Sanaa.

    The help offered here is only a brief, general outline. As you continue to plan, you will have more questions such as- do I want Memory Maker?; how do I choose a character meal?; which attractions are must-dos?. Please come back to planDisney where we love to help!

    Enjoy your visit to Mickey!
