    How do I plan my visit, adding tickets, etc

    Greetings, Crystal, welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you for consulting planDisney, you’ve come to the right place, and I will help you begin your planning. By reaching out to planDisney, you’ve taken the first important steps by creating a Disney account. You can use this account to book your Disney Resort hotel, purchase Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets, make advance Disney Dining reservations, and add Enchanting Extras Collections events and activities to enhance your stay.

    Crystal, I recommend perusing through planDisney - Disney Resort Hotel Pocket Guides and the planDisney Video Library for information on Disney Resort hotels and videos containing helpful planning information to give you a broad sense of what is on the horizon.

    In your Disney account, under the “Places to Stay” tab you will find "View Special Offers" which may interest you. As well, you will find a list of all the Disney Resort hotels. Simply click on one that interests you and a new page will pop up asking you to select from a Guest Room-only Booking, a Package Vacation, and sometimes you’ll see a Special Offers tab - click on one of those options, plug in your dates, and follow the simple, step-by-step process for booking your stay and adding theme park tickets and any options - such as the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane service which will save you time waiting in lines for attractions that offer a Lightning Lane entrance. Please ensure you secure your Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservation once your theme park tickets and booking is confirmed, as this is the system in place currently for visiting the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.

    Once you confirm your booking and receive a reservation confirmation number, double-check to see if the reservation is linked to your Disney account. Download the My Disney Experience app to then manage all your plans before, during and even after your visit.

    Crystal, please come back to planDisney to receive first-hand tips for adding Things to Do at Walt Disney World Resort to enhance your stay, especially during the holiday season - thank you!
