    I am looking to wanna plan a trip but clueless on how to plan it

    Hello Kelsey,

    If you're looking for recommendations for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, I'd say you've come to the right place. The planDisney panelists always love to share suggestions based on our own Disney vacation experiences.

    I'm happy to share some tips that can help get you started with planning your vacation. You'll likely have questions along the way, so do come back and ask us here at planDisney for additional suggestions.

    The tips I'll offer here can help you plan and book your own vacation. If you prefer a travel agent take care of booking, you can do a web search for "Authorized Disney Vacation Planner" and consider working with a travel agent who has earned this special distinction for their expertise in booking Disney destination vacations. 

    So let's talk about when to visit, where to stay, how to book your vacation package, and how to make your theme park reservations. 

    I think the first question to think about is when you want to visit. You might already have a specific vacation time in mind, or your dates might be flexible. Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks need both a theme park ticket and a theme park reservation. It's helpful to know that theme park ticket pricing is date-based. You might want to look at the "Choose the Day You Will Visit" calendar to get an idea of ticket pricing. You might also want to check the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar to see when the theme parks have reservations available for the dates you'd like to visit. You might also want to check out the "Seasonal Events Throughout the Parks" information to learn about exciting experiences available at different times of the year.

    Next, think about where you'd like to stay. There are so many wonderful options available in the Disney Resorts Collection to help make your stay magical. You might want to take some time to get familiar with the Resorts and all that they offer. One great way to quickly get familiar with the Resorts is to check out the planDisney pocket guides like the planDisney Pocket Guide to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. You'll see you can check out pocket guides for other Resorts, and there are more pocket guides on the way. 

    Next, you can use the easy online tools to book your vacation package. Simply start by entering some basic trip information like Check In and Check Out dates and travel party details. You'll see choices for Resort hotels you can select, and after you select your Resort hotel, you'll be prompted to add your theme park tickets.

    Next, you can book your theme park reservations with the Disney Park Pass system

    Kelsey, if you need help with booking your vacation package, you can call the Walt Disney World Resort at (407)-934-7639 and speak with a Cast Member for assistance.

    I hope these quick tips are helpful as you start to put together your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Here's wishing you lots of Disney magic in your day today, Kelsey!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
