    Next year I will be celebrating my 50th Birthday and 30 years in Education. It’s taken me this long to realize my Disney Dreams but I have no clue where to begin! I just want to see Everything. All I know is I want to stay in the Wilderness Lodge.

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Dee!

    I am so happy to hear that your dream of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation will soon come true! We are honored to help you plan a pixie-dusted visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth to celebrate your milestones!

    You are off to a great start in planning by deciding to stay right in the middle of the magic at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is a classic Disney Resort hotel where I have made magical memories with my family. I highly recommend making dining reservations at Whispering Canyon Café, using boat transportation to travel to Magic Kingdom Park, and enjoying the sunset and lake views while having a meal or drink at Geyser Point Bar & Grill.

    Since this is your first visit, I recommend booking a Disney vacation package including 5-day theme park tickets and a 7-night stay at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. By staying for a week, you will have the chance to experience each of the four theme parks and return to your favorite for a second visit, enjoy your Disney Resort hotel, and explore dining, entertainment, and shopping options at Disney Springs. To celebrate your milestones, I also recommend making dinner reservations at California Grill, securing tickets to see Drawn to Life, a thrilling spectacle of Cirque du Soleil, and maybe even booking a fireworks cruise. In addition, visiting in November 2022 means you will also get to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Check out the Tickets & Visit Guide to explore theme park ticket options and discover the possibilities at each theme park. Then, when you are ready to book your stay, contact your trusted travel professional or the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 934-7639. You are also welcome to view our Panel Extras for more tips and advice and remember to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for news and updates.

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Dee. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions! It will be a pleasure to continue to assist you as you plan your dream Disney vacation!

    See ya real soon,
