    Need to plan the most epic trip to Orlando.

    Hey, Shivram! Welcome to planDisney. 

    If you're hoping to plan the most enchanting trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth, you've come to the right place. My planDisney pals and I are here to help fellow Guests like you maximize the magic of their Walt Disney World Resort trip. On the planDisney website, you'll find a plethora of tips, tricks, and advice to help you plan. You'll also find our helpful planDisney podcast, which you can watch or listen to. All of the resources we provide will help equip you to have a Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah vacation.

    Shivram, here are my top tips for planning an out-of-this-world Disney vacation:

    First, stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Disney Resorts truly immerse you in the magic from start to finish with their legendary storytelling, enchanting theming, and world-class customer service. There are also unique benefits available to Guests, such as Early Theme Park Entry, complimentary transportation within the Walt Disney World Resort, dining reservation advantages, and more! Looking at your arrival date, Shivram, you might struggle to find hotel accommodation on-site. However, hopefully, you'll be able to find something late in the game. In the future, I recommend booking your Disney Resort at least 6 months in advance.

    Second, if possible, try and visit each of the four theme parks during your visit. That might mean getting the Park Hopper Option on your tickets or getting a 4-Day Ticket. (There is currently an amazing deal on a 4-Park Magic Ticket right now that's worth checking out). There are four theme parks and two water parks on property. Each park is delightfully magical in its own way and I trust you'll fall in love with each one.

    Third, dine at some of the restaurants at Walt Disney World. 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). Again, since you're planning on arriving soon, many of the restaurants will be fully booked up. However, I've been noticing that many wonderful restaurants still have availability for last-minute reservations. Therefore, just look around and see what you can find. 

    In terms of putting together a vacation package, you have a few options:

    1. You can price up and even book a vacation through the Walt Disney World Resort website.

    2. You can speak directly to a Cast Member, who can help you plan a vacation that accords with your budget and needs. 

    3. You can find an authorized Disney vacation planner. There are many no-fee agents who are experts at helping Guests plan their next Disney adventure. A simple search on Google should help you find one.

    I hope that's helpful, Shivram. See ya real soon!
