    How do I plan with the Disney app?

    Hey there, Cypress, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! Judging by your question, you’ll soon be heading to Walt Disney World for your magical vacation! That sounds like a fantastic reason to get excited! 

    The My Disney Experience mobile app is a requirement for every Walt Disney World Vacation! Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but it is very helpful when planning and navigating your vacations. My Disney Vacation planning always starts with choosing which Disney Resorts Collection hotel I will call home for a few days. Unfortunately, resort hotel rooms cannot be booked directly from within the app. However, the Walt Disney World website is mobile device friendly, so you can still get your planning started right from the palm of your hand. 

    If you do not need a resort hotel reservation for your stay, the remainder of your planning can be completed from within the mobile app, starting with Theme Park Tickets. After opening the mobile app, locate the plus sign located at the bottom of the screen and choose the option to “Buy Tickets and Passes.” After you complete the remaining prompts, give yourself a pat on the back because you’re officially on your way to vacation! With tickets secured, the next planning step is to book your Theme Park reservations. Again, this process can be completed within the app as well through the same screen mentioned above. Simply select the “Make or Modify Park Reservations” option and complete the remaining prompts. With these steps completed, you’ll officially be deep into the Disney Vacation planning mode. 

    The My Disney Experience mobile app is also a great place to plan your individual Theme Park days while you’re at the resort. The mobile app shows you attraction wait times, mobile food order options, resort directions, Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations, and so much more! There’s so much there that it’d be impossible for me to share it all without boring you. And the words Disney and boring should never go together!

    I hope this helps, Cypress! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
