    I'm thinking of spending a vacation at the Disney World with my wife and three kids under 12. I would like to know the procedure and the cost

    Greetings, Eddy, and welcome to planDisney! How exciting to be planning an international holiday to Walt Disney World Resort. I love that Mickey Mouse is a friend to all; he'll be so happy to meet you and your family! Let's look at planning your vacation so you can experience the sparkle of pixie dust for yourself.

    As the saying goes, a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, and planning a Disney vacation is the same. While there are many fun experiences to plan, my tip is to start with the basics. 

    First, choose dates that suit your family's schedule and head to the Walt Disney World Resort website. Everything you need is online, and my first tip is to do some fun research by looking at the different Disney Resort Hotels. I recommend you stay at a Disney hotel because you get perks like Early Theme Park Entry and complimentary transportation to the theme parks. My family enjoys staying at Disney's Pop Century Resort because it's affordable and offers the Disney Skyliner as a means of transportation.

    Once you've decided on a resort, you can easily add it to your online shopping cart to see other options and pricing. You can add theme park tickets, a dining plan, and more, tailoring your vacation package to your family's preferences. You can secure this vacation package with a deposit and make interest-free payments leading up to your trip. I see your location is offering a promotion that allows adults to purchase admission at children's pricing, so that would be a fabulous deal if you're eligible!

    If you prefer, you can call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations with questions, and the friendly Cast Members will be glad to help you plan and reserve your trip. You could also work with an independent travel advisor; look for one certified to book Disney vacations. 

    As you plan this magical vacation, remember that you're not alone. Feel free to reach out to planDisney if you have any questions. My fellow panelists and I are here to assist you every step of the way. Thanks, Eddy, and I look forward to hearing from you again.

    Magic awaits,
