    I need help planning my first trip to WDW. Can a Disney travel agent reach out to me?

    Hello Lawanda! Planning your first-ever visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is certainly exciting but can be a little overwhelming too! From four treasured theme parks to two splash-tastic water parks, and a world-class shopping district, there is so much magic to experience! Let’s see what we can do to get you some help!

    Let’s start with where you first came…planDisney! My fellow planDisney panelists and I can answer just about any Disney vacation planning that might be on your mind! You can send us any questions like, “What resort hotel do you recommend if we are traveling on a budget?” or “Where I can grab a quick breakfast if I want to get to the theme parks early?” We’ll get back to you quickly with answers based upon our own vacation experiences! You can use our advice to start planning your own vacation! So, ask away!

    Next, you might want to visit the Walt Disney World Resort website and use the “Chat Now” feature! This is one of my favorite tools on the website! Simply clicking the “Chat Now” icon when it appears will connect you with a knowledgeable Cast Member at the Walt Disney World Resort! Like planDisney, you can ask them anything on your mind about planning your vacation! They will get back to you instantly! Speaking of the website, it can also be a great planning resource! When you arrive at the website, explore all of the options available. Click around on the website! Don’t worry, you can’t break the website! We usually leave that to Ralph and Stitch!

    I am also including an informative and fun video with this answer! This is a video starring yours truly and my fellow planDisney panelist, Elaine (she’s awesome)! In the video, we share our top planning tips for first-time visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort! I hope you find it helpful!

    Finally, Lawanda, if you prefer to speak with someone over the phone you can always call (407)-939-5277 to speak with a friendly Cast Member. I highly recommend having a few basic planning components already known prior to making your phone call. For example, knowing a time period for when you want to visit, and an idea of which resort category you want to call “home” (i.e. value, moderate, or deluxe) is always good to know ahead of time. It will help expedite your phone call.

    So, there you go, Lawanda! I hope you find some or all of these planning resources helpful as you dream of your first-ever visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Happy Planning!
