    Hello Ladies! Is there such a thing as over planning a Disney trip?? I love to be organized, but sometimes feel as if I've over planned. Where's a good balance??

    Hi Lynn!

         Oh goodness - you sound like one of us!  While it is very important to be prepared and organized for your Disney trip, there is definitely a line that needs to be drawn.  You absolutely need to have your Advanced Dining Reservations made, along with any other special activities that require reservations.  I like to create a table or chart with all of my confirmation numbers, as well as any other numbers that I may need.  I also like to put the park hours in this chart, as well as any Extra Magic Hours that may be going on.  If it is a super crowded time of the year, or if you want to set up a game plan, I HIGHLY recommend TouringPlans.com.  Yes, it does require a small fee to sign up, but you can check crowd levels, access tried and true itineraries and more!

          I personally don't like to be too regimented once I hit the parks, I just use my game plan as a guide.  A certain amount of spontaneity is necessary to thoroughly enjoy your Walt Disney World vacation.  The more educated and prepared you are, the more comfortable you will be once you arrive.  So grab your plans and go!

    Much pixie dust,
