    We want to plan a trip to Walt Disney World Resort, June 11, 2021, where do I start?

    Hi there, Max! 

    I'm happy to hear you're planning a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth - Walt Disney World Resort! Your travel date is coming up quickly, so I'm happy to help give you some advice about where to get started.

    There are several ways to plan a Walt Disney World vacation. First, you can use the easy-to-navigate Walt Disney World Resort website to create your own Disney getaway. On the website, you can build your own vacation package with lodging, tickets, dining and more. This is a great option for Guests that have visited before and are familiar with the website, and with Walt Disney World. The Chat feature is a helpful tool, as you can ask a Cast Member for help along the way. The Chat window typically pops up when I'm on the website, but if you don't see it pop up, you can access it from the Help Center

    Guests also have the option to call Walt Disney World directly to speak to a Cast Member that can help put together their vacation package. While this is sometimes a great avenue, I don't recommend it at this time due to the high call volumes they are experiencing. Wait times have been unusually long, and even though the Disney "hold music" is fun, it's not my favorite option. 

    The best recommendation I can give you is to reach out to an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner in your area. These travel agents, who are Disney-trained specialists, don't cost one penny more than if you book the vacation yourself. A certified Disney planner can help you select the best Disney Resorts Collection hotel for your travel party, purchase Theme Park Tickets, secure Disney Park Pass reservations, make Advance Dining Reservations, and handle any other Disney vacation planning needs you may have, all while monitoring your reservation for any discounted rates that could save you money. The easiest way to find one of these Disney specialists is to ask for recommendations from friends, or to search on Google.

    If it's simply a day trip you're looking to book, the best place to start is by checking the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar to make sure the theme park you'd like to visit has available reservations for that day. All Guests will need valid admission and a Disney Park Pass reservation for the same park on the same day to be able to visit that park. Once you've purchased a theme park ticket and reserved your Park Pass, you're good to go for a day trip! You can also add the  Park Hopper Option to your theme park ticket if you'd like to visit more than one theme park per day during your time in Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I hope this helps with your planning!
