    Hey Jackie! Looking to take a trip to Disney world in 2016 for my two nephew's birthdays. They will be 4 and 5 years old. Hoping you could help us get more information on our trip to Disney World! We don't know where to start. Thanks!

    Hi Britni!  Thanks for asking me a question here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I like to start planning my Walt Disney World vacation by going to the Special Offers page of the Walt Disney World website.  There, you will find all of the special promotions being offered.  If your dates are flexible, this is a great way to save money.  My favorite promotion to plan around is the free Disney Dining Plan.  

    After you know when you are going, it is time to start planning your dining experiences.  You can make dining reservations 180 days in advance from your check in day by calling 407-WDW-DINE at 7am.  I'm sure your little nephews would love to enjoy a character meal, my favorite is Tusker House at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and those do fill up really quickly.  

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can now make 3 FastPass+ selections 60 days ahead of time.  You'll want to create a MyDisneyExperience account for yourself and then add the people who will be traveling with you under your friends and family.  Once everyone is added, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections for everyone in your party so you can stay together as a group. You also have the option to make individual selections if your group wants to split up.  You can also see all of your resort and dining reservations on your MyDisneyExperience account, as well as your ticket information.  

    I hope this helps point you in the right direction! If you have any other questions while planning, please come back and ask.  Have a magical day!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
