    It has been a long time since I have been to Disney World. I thinking of taking our 7 yr old this year. Is there information brochure or maps that I can have mailed to me. I really like to pre plan our vacations.

    Hi Shelley,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you have fantastic planning skills. I know that your 7-year old must be quite excited! As part of its ongoing efforts to protect the environment, the Walt Disney World Resort no longer sends paper maps and brochures in the mail. Instead, all of the information guests need is now available online. 

    We find the online Maps and Activities list helpful when planning our vacations. There are also online Vacation Planning Videos that you can access. To access the videos, you will need to enter some additional information. We find them informative and love to watch them before we start planning our vacations.

    If you have not done so already, create a My Disney Experience account. Since you are a planner, you should appreciate being able to make Dining Reservations and Fast Pass+ Reservations for rides and attractions. Character Meals are a fantastic way for your 7-year old to meet the characters. Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance. Reservations fill quickly, so be prepared to make the reservations as close to the 180 day mark as possible!

    Happy Planning!
