    I am planning a family trip (6 adults and 2 children) from Jan 11- 15. I need help planning - making park reservations and dinner reservations. Is there a Disney planner that can help me? Please let me know. Thank you!

    Hiya Katherine,

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m so excited to be a part of your planning journey. Going on a family vacation can be such an incredible experience, especially if you plan it well. I’m currently planning a family vacation for my family (including four adults, two toddlers, and an infant), and I can completely relate to feeling like a bit of assistance would be a welcome gift.

    Luckily, Katherine, I thrive off of a bit of chaos, detailed planning, and a whole lot of pixie dust, but I understand that is not everyone’s cup of team. Based on your question, I think you would benefit from working with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner! While you no longer need Disney Park Pass Reservations for date-based tickets beginning on January 9th, 2024, Authorized Disney Vacation Planners can help you reserve your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, make advance dining reservations, and every other aspect of your trip.

    So, what is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner? They are talented individuals who have received special training from Walt Disney World Resort in Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning. Once completed, they receive the designation of an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner! Not only are they skilled at helping you find the best deals and plan out your itinerary to make your trip stress-free and seamless, but they also provide their services for free! You can find an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner using your favorite search engine and typing “Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.” To verify that the person you are looking at is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, make sure that their website has the official Authorized Disney Vacation Planner logo (it has a Mickey hat on it) and their EAR-Marked status (diamond, platinum, gold, silver, or bronze).

    I hope this was helpful, Katherine, and gets you on your way to planning an incredible family vacation! Don’t forget you still have a friend here at planDisney! You can always come back and visit us here as well for recommendations for dining, must-dos, and resort hotels.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
