    Last minute planning going on for March vacation (yes, this year). Am I too late to book and get the best experience?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mary!

    There are many ways to enjoy a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Some people like to plan months or years in advance, and others prefer to do things spur-of-the-moment. Although I am usually a plan-ahead type, occasionally I find myself with the opportunity to plan a last-minute trip. As long as you can be somewhat flexible with your plans, I say go for it! Spontaneous visits can be just as great, or even better than, a long-planned trip.

    Dining Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance. You might find at this point some dining locations have little or no availability in March. No worries! There are many great dining choices in the Theme Parks, Resort Hotels, and Disney Springs. You may discover an unexpected favorite from those with availability. Or during your visit use the My Disney Experience mobile app to search for an available table when you are feeling hungry. You never know what might pop up. Instead of Table-Service dining, you could snack your way around the parks. There are also many delicious choices among Quick-Service restaurants, no reservations necessary.

    Although FastPass+ experiences may be reserved up to 30 days in advance (60 days for Resort Hotel guests), being a little flexible with your selections is the recipe for a great last minute trip! I recently helped my sister with her FastPass+ reservations the night before her vacation. With a little patience and determination, we were able to find her reservations for even the most popular attractions.

    I recommend creating a My Disney Experience account and downloading the mobile app. Then go ahead and book that trip! Feel free to come back and visit us again. We'll be more than happy to help.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
