    Need help planning for family vacation 2023 8 adults 6 kids

    Welcome to planDisney, Tami!

    Thank you for sending your very first question our way. Your Fairy Godmother has guided you to the right place for magical Disney vacation planning tips and advice!

    The best thing about planning in advance is having time to think about every single aspect of your Walt Disney World Resort adventure. The Most Magical Place on Earth is my favorite family vacation destination because there is so much for everyone to see and do at the theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, and Disney Resort hotels.

    I recommend booking a vacation package including a stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and theme park tickets, especially if this is your first visit. Plan to Be Our Guest for at least 7 nights and stay right in the middle of the magic to enjoy benefits like proximity to the parks and complimentary transportation. Add 5-day tickets to your package to explore each of the four theme parks and maybe return to your favorite for a second visit, and consider purchasing a Disney Dining Plan to turn your vacation into an all-inclusive experience. Although dining plans are currently unavailable, guests will be able to add them to their booking once they are offered again.

    As you prepare for your visit, explore the online Tickets and Visit Guide, our Panel Extras, and the questions and answers here at planDisney. Also, be sure to learn more about Disney Resorts Collection hotels and keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for news, updates, and announcements. Then, when you are ready to book, please call the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 934-7639, and Cast Members will be glad to assist you. You are also welcome to contact your trusted travel professional and remember to check if special deals and offers become available for your travel dates.

    I hope this information is helpful, Tami! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, it will be a pleasure to continue to help you plan a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
