Family planning a trip

    hello can I have some help planning my trip for my wife and 1 year old?

    Welcome to planDisney, Abner! You have found the right place to come for help planning your family's Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    The first thing you need to do is decide on how long your stay will be. I recommend no less than five days in the Theme Parks. One day each at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Epcot and two days exploring Magic Kingdom Park. Of course, if you want to spend more time in any of these parks, there is no limit to the amount of fun that can be had - you will never be bored! 

    Next, decide which Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you would like to call home. There are three levels of hotels to fit your budget; Value, Moderate, and Deluxe. My favorite Value hotel is Disney's Pop Century Resort. It has been recently refurbished with vinyl flooring and a second queen bed that can be stored away or used as a table - giving you lots of space to move about the room. It is also on the Disney Skyliner route for easy transportation to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot. An excellent option for a moderate resort is Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. Here you can even stay in a Pirate Themed room for extra around-the-clock fun! If we are staying at a Deluxe resort, my go-to is Disney's Yacht Club Resort. This nautically themed hotel is within walking distance of Epcot and the Disney Skyliner for a quick ride over to Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    Once you have decided where you will rest after your days filled with magic and fun, you are ready to book your Vacation Package! 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. You only need to put down $200 to book your package, with the remainder due 30 days before your arrival date. Please note your 1-year-old does not need a Theme Park ticket but will need to be added to your reservation.  Be sure to add the Memory Maker option to your trip so you can download all the unforgettable family memories you are going to make. Once you are all set, you can link your reservation to your My Disney Experience account. If you don't already have an account, you can easily create one using your email address. Once everything is all linked, you can make your Theme Park reservations using the Disney Park Pass System.  Be sure to also check out the Know Before You go page for information on how Walt Disney World Resort is helping to keep you and your family safe during this time. 

    Abner, I know this is a LOT of information condensed, and you may have even more questions now than you did before. But, here is the good news! You are more than welcome to come back and visit us here at planDisney as many times as you wish to ask us any questions you may have.
