    What do i need to do first to start planning my trip? Do I need to buy tickets first or hotel?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sabrina!

    I'm so glad that you chose to be our Guest. Planning a trip to Walt Disney World can leave your head spinning, right? This is why planDisney exists. We're here to help fellow Guests with their questions and to share our collective experience and knowledge. So you've come to the right place. 

    When it comes to putting a vacation package together, you can speak directly to a friendly Cast Member. They will be able to book accommodation and tickets for you, as well as answer any questions you might have.

    Another option many people choose is to find an authorized Disney vacation planner. You can find these with a simple Internet search. There are a number of no-fee agents who can help you plan your vacation, often even saving you lots of money in the process.

    Here are some things to consider:

    There are four Theme Parks and two Water Parks at the Walt Disney World Resort. At the very least, I'd encourage you to visit as many of the four Theme Parks as possible. Each one is delightfully magical in its own way. Have a look online and see all the enchanting things on offer at each of the Theme Parks.

    I always encourage people to stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. There are loads of magical benefits available to Guests staying on property, like convenient and complimentary transportation and extra time in the Theme Parks. They also immerse you in the Disney magic for the entirety of your vacation.

    When it comes to meals, "What could be more important than a little something to eat?" There are so many amazing places to eat, not only at the Theme Parks but also at the Disney Resorts and Disney Springs. You're going to be spoilt for choice! Tables get booked up quickly. Therefore, you'll want to make reservations as soon as possible. One of the many benefits of staying on property is the ability to make dining reservations up to 60 days in advance of your trip plus the length of your stay (up to 10 days).

    I hope that's helpful, Sabrina! With the 50th Anniversary Celebration currently underway, this is a "practically perfect" time to visit. Please stop by planDisney again in the build-up to your trip if you have any other questions.

    See ya real soon!
