    Need help planning a trip.

    Hi Whitney,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney! You have come to the right place. We here at planDisney love to help guests plan magical vacations! Let me give you some of the tips that I give to my friends at the very beginning of their planning for a Walt Disney World vacation.

    My first suggestion is to consider when you might like to visit Walt Disney World. Some guests can only visit during certain times of the year, such as when children are on vacation from school. Others have more flexibility in the dates that they can visit. I suggest that you consider the schedules of all the guests in your traveling party to see when is feasible to visit. Also consider the weather. Florida can be very hot, so if you have guests traveling with you who do not tolerate heat well, you might want to avoid summer as a time to visit Walt Disney World.

    My next suggestion is that you consider where you would like to stay for your vacation. Especially if this is your first Walt Disney World vacation, I recommend a Walt Disney World resort hotel. The convenience of being so close to all of the theme parks, as well as complimentary transportation around Walt Disney World, can make your vacation so much smoother. There Walt Disney World resort hotels have many different themes, as well as many different levels of resorts, from value to deluxe. Take some time to look at the resort hotels to see which one is right for you.

    You will also want to look at the Walt Disney World theme parks and ticket options. While many guests want to visit a theme park, and even multiple theme parks, each day, some guests prefer to take a slower pace and have some days to simply relax at the resort hotel. Walt Disney World has ticket options for all of these! The link I provided earlier in this paragraph can help you to look through those.

    I also suggest that you take a look at the Walt Disney World special offers, deals, and discounts page. Walt Disney World offers a variety of special offers. Some are available to everyone, and some are available to specific groups, such as Disney+ subscribers or United States military members. It is always a good idea to see if any of these special offers apply to you!

    When you are ready to start exploring, you can head to the Walt Disney World vacation planning page. This page will help to guide you through the steps of booking a Walt Disney World vacation. There is also a phone number at the bottom of the page if you prefer to call and speak with a cast member to do so.

    I know that this is a lot of information, Whitney, and that is why planDisney is here for you! As you continue along your planning journey, please do feel free to come back to us with any further questions you may have.
