    Hey! I am wanting to book with you guys for August 2019 but flights are not yet available, the notice said we can add flights later, so does the overall price include flights or would they have to be booked seperately?

    Hi Samantha,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can imagine the excitement in your household as you plan a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    You will need to add your flights to your vacation package - you (or your travel agent) will need to select the dates, flight times and airline to price the flights. If you are booking online when vacation packages are available for those dates, you will need to select your resort hotel, the number of resort hotel nights and number of days for theme park tickets. Once you have those selections, you should see an option to add flights.

    We always book our flights separately because I am looking for the most affordable price. So, I suggest that you price the flights with your resort hotel package and without. I am also particular about the times of our flights. I look for flights that have us arriving in the morning so that we can enjoy that first day. Given that you are booking international flights, your options may be somewhat limited, but do consider the ages of everyone in your party when selecting flights. Now that our girls are older, they can stay up later and handle flight delays. Also, check out this terrific answer from Moms Panelist Jane about booking flights.

    Samantha, remember to make your advanced dining reservations 180 days in advance and Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.
