    Hello All! I am very new to this- My husband bought me Annual passes for Christmas and I am overwhelmed. To start, is January a good month to visit the parks? The pricing is so expensive. Also any good resources or tips to plan the trip on a budget ?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Gleidys! What an awesome Christmas gift! You’re going to get to enjoy so much magic at the theme parks with your Walt Disney World Annual Pass!

    I always try to plan just a few experiences every time I visit with my family. If you try to experience everything all at once, that’s when it can become overwhelming. Your annual pass will allow you plenty of time over the next year for lots of fun! I'm also a Florida Resident and I’m always trying to escape the heat and humidity. I think January and February are great months to visit the Walt Disney World Resort because of the cooler weather.

    Gleidys, I start by booking my Disney Resort hotel. Guests get to enjoy benefits like a 60-day window to make FastPass+ selections. After I figure out where we’re staying and which attractions we’d like to enjoy, I start making dining reservations. Before you know it, all of the pieces of the puzzle come together, and your trip will be planned!

    When it comes to budgeting, make sure to search for Special Offers specifically crafted for Florida Residents. You will find discounts on Disney Resort hotel stays and other promotions meant just for residents. Don’t forget that you will get to enjoy passholder discounts all year! You will save at least 10% on merchandise, experiences and at Disney restaurants. It really does add up!

    I hope this helps you start your planning. My space is limited so please feel free to come back to see us soon if you have any other questions. Helping you with the details of your next magical visit is our pleasure!
