    We are planning a large family trip to WDW in 2022 to celebrate my daughter's 15th birthday (approximately 20 people); what resources are available to help with planning the entire trip (lodging, tickets, guides, tours, dining, etc.).

    Hi Agustin!

    Welcome to planDisney where you have a planning friend in us! 

    We love to celebrate birthdays at the Walt Disney World Resort. And with two 14-year old daughters, I understand your wish to make the magic happen for that special day. Although you can always call to speak with a Cast Member (407-939-5277) and contact us at planDisney, I have found it helpful to research using all of the online resources first so that I can ask better questions if I need to talk with a Cast Member. 

    Review the resort hotel categories - value, moderate, deluxe and deluxe villa. While I love each resort hotel category, my family prefers deluxe and deluxe villa resort hotels because of the amenities they offer. Given the size of your party, you may want to consider a deluxe or deluxe villa resort because they have suites or villas. We always look at photos, resort maps, and YouTube videos to get a better sense of the resort layout. Decide the number of theme park ticket days you will need, and check the Special Offers to get a sense of what kinds of discounts are currently available. Finally, when I am planning early, I always price our vacation package for the current year's dates just to get a sense of what the price could be understanding that the price could change by the dates of my visit.

    If you want to add a personal touch, consider Disney Private VIP Tours. They can help you create your Disney Dream Day. By the time of your visit, you may be able to book some of our Enchanting Extras. Also take some time to review all of the dining options and decide which advanced dining reservations might be good ones for your family. Consider where you want the birthday girl to celebrate her birthday. Check the Restaurant List and use the filters to narrow your search as necessary, A few of our favorite restaurants for celebrations include Cinderella's Royal Table, California Grill, and Narcoossee's

    Agustin, we follow the Disney Parks Blog to get the latest news and updates. Check the operational updates to be sure you know what the current park availability and procedures are for the time of your visit. Once you are ready to book, make sure to create a My Disney Experience account if you do not already have one so that when you make your plans you can be sure to link your resort hotel, theme park tickets, and dining reservations!

    Magic and memories,
