    Hi, We are thinking about another Disney World vacation, possibly in late summer of 2022 if finances and border opening allows. Does Disney recommend booking directly from website or using a Disney vacation planner? Thank You, Nicki & Chris

    Hi, Nicki. Hi, Chris. I sure hope everything works out and you are able to return to Walt Disney World next summer!

    When it comes to booking directly or using one of the many Authorized Disney Vacation Planners, it really depends on your personal preferences. Are you the kind of people who relish in planning every last detail of your vacation or do you prefer a more hands-off approach in which someone else helps fine tune your trip?

    Planning your vacation can be a fun extension of the vacation itself for people who, like me, enjoy perusing dining options and reading about the latest news in and around the Walt Disney World Resort. It can be exciting to arrange (and, often times, rearrange as plans change) dining reservations to align with your touring schedule and to research all of the Enchanting Extras that add even more pixie dust to your trip.

    With that said, I'm not kidding myself in thinking that everyone enjoys planning as much as I do. Sometimes, getting a little help in booking reservations, checking for discounts and planning an itinerary makes a vacation all the more magical for the traveling party. If having help appeals to you, you might really appreciate the services of an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. He or she can help as much--or as little--as you like.

    Of course, if you decide to plan your own trip, and you run into something that leaves you stumped, you're more than welcome to stop in here at planDisney anytime. It's truly our pleasure to offer firsthand advice, tried-and-true tips and personalized recommendations for all Guests!

    As you can see, there really isn't a right or wrong answer to this one; it all comes down to your unique preferences and approach. No matter which route you decide to take, I hope that all of your vacation dreams come true!

I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
