    can i get some help with planning a disney family tip in august

    Hi Sharnese! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    When it comes to getting help for planning a family trip to the Walt Disney World Resort, you have come to right place! Between deciding which Disney Resorts Hotel to stay at, what parks you want to visit, and where you plan to eat, there is no shortage of questions to be answered. August will be here before you know it, so let's dive right into everything you need to know!

    The first aspect is to decide if you want to stay at a Disney Resorts Hotel. There are plenty of options to choose from that will typically fit many different budgets. Walt Disney World offers resorts in three different categories; value, moderate, and deluxe. Each one is incredibly themed and comes with a host of benefits. One of the biggest perks to staying at one of these resorts is having complimentary Disney Transportation to and from the parks each day. You'll never have to worry about how you plan to get anywhere you are going. These transportation options come in many forms, including by bus, boat, monorail, or even through the sky on the Disney Skyliner. Sometimes getting to your destination is an attraction in itself!

    Your next decision will be to choose a ticket package that fits best for your stay. You can add up to 10 days if you plan to stay for this amount of time. The base ticket allows you entry into one park per day, but you'll have the option to add the park hopper to your tickets. This added feature grants you access to all four parks each day and provides you flexibility during your trip. It's especially beneficial for shorter visits since it will allow you to see all four parks if you do not have a specified day for each.

    Advanced Dining Reservations will be available to book 60 days in advance of your trip. You'll be able to make reservations online using your My Disney Experience account or by downloading the My Disney Experience App to your mobile device. Once you create an account and link your resort reservation and ticket package, you will be ready to start making reservations at the 60-day mark. One of the big perks to staying in a Disney Resorts Hotel is that you can book all of your dining reservations 60 days in advance of your arrival day for every day of your trip (up to 10 days). This will give you an advantage against other Guests staying offsite who have to book their reservations each day at the 60-day mark. 

    Sharnese, if you prefer to work directly with someone to book your entire stay, including airfare, I suggest reaching out to an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. You'll be able to communicate back and forth with these individuals to help plan the perfect stay. To find one, simply perform a Google search and a host of options will appear. Choose the one that will work best for you and start planning your magical Disney vacation. The best part about using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner is there is no additional cost to you. You'll pay the same amount for your trip as if you booked it yourself!

    I hope this information helps you plan for your upcoming visit! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    Happy planning!
