    Hi, I'm wanting help planning a vacation for my family.

    Welcome to planDisney, Sabryna!

    If you're hoping to plan the most enchanting trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth, you've come to the right place. Whether you've visited before, or if this is your first time in forever, my planDisney pals and I are here to help you maximize the magic of your Disney vacation. On the planDisney website, you'll find a plethora of tips, tricks, and advice to help you plan. You'll also find our ever-growing library of planning videos. All of the resources we provide will help equip you to have a zip-a-dee-doo-dah vacation.

    Here are my top tips for planning an out-of-this-world Disney adventure:

    First, stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. With their legendary storytelling, enchanting theming, and world-class customer service, Disney Resorts immerse you in the magic from start to finish. There are also unique benefits available to Guests, such as Early Theme Park Entry, complimentary transportation within Walt Disney World Resort, dining reservation advantages, and more!

    Second, if possible, try and visit each of the four theme parks during your visit. That might mean getting the Park Hopper Option on your ticket. Each park is delightfully magical in its own way and I trust you'll fall in love with each one.

    Third, dine at some of the restaurants at Walt Disney World. One of the many benefits of staying on property is the ability to make dining reservations up to 60 days in advance of your trip plus the length of your stay (up to 10 days).

    Fourth, purchase Disney Genie+ in order to experience more attractions in the theme parks. We've been told there are upcoming changes to this service. Keep an eye out for any exciting news.

    In terms of putting together a vacation package, you have a few options:

    1. You can price up and even book a vacation through the Walt Disney World Resort website.

    2. You can speak directly to a Cast Member, who can help you plan a vacation that accords with your budget and needs. 

    3. You can find an authorized Disney vacation planner. There are many no-fee agents who are experts at helping Guests plan their next Disney adventure. A simple search on Google should help you find one.

    I hope that's helpful, Sabryna. Feel free to come and see us again if you have any more questions. You've got a friend in me.
