    I am looking to book a Disney vacation in Florida next spring, 2025. It will be for 2 adults and 2 childs.

    Hey Howdy Hey Alesia and welcome to planDisney!

    I am so excited to hear that you are in the early stages of planning your Magical vacation next year. If this is your first time visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, there are a couple of strategies for you to consider when planning your vacation. I will be happy to review them so you can confidently plan your vacation and enjoy the process. Giddy up!

    Planning a trip to Walt Disney World is no small task. With over 25 Disney Resorts Collection hotels, 4 Theme Parks and 2 Water Parks, this may be thrilling for some yet overwhelming for others. If you are excited about planning and looking forward to doing it yourself, Disney does have a landing page on where to start. This has a lot of helpful information and allows you to browse the site to look into all there is to offer during your upcoming vacation. You will be the one planning your vacation, adding items to your plans such as tickets and hotel accomodations and navigating any reservations yourself. This can be super fun and you have your newfound Ohana here at planDisney to help answer any questions you may have along the way. If you do feel that this may be a bit much for your first time, there still is another way to go about planning. 

    Your other option Alesia is connecting with a vacation planner. You can do an internet search for "Authorized Disney Vacation Planners" for several options of companies or individuals to choose from. These expert planners will be able to guide you through the full process of booking your vacation and reservations for dining and other things to experience during your Magical vacation. Not only will you be working with an expert when it comes to planning Disney vacations, but there is no charge for their services! All the expertise and help for no extra cost! It really is a great deal and can help a ton to offload the tricky parts for you and just enjoy the process. 

    When searching for vacation planners you may see some advertising their "earmarked status". For those with consistent work and experience in the field, this is a distinction given by Disney to these companies for their quality and experience. You may find this helpful and reassuring knowing the company you pick has acknowledged experience from Disney for their service. 

    I hope this information helped give you places to start when booking your Magical vacation. If you have any further questions, just know you have a friend in us here at planDisney to answer any questions you may have! 

    To Infinity and Beyond,
