    Hello, we are planning our 2nd trip to Disney World for May 29th, 2018. I already made reservations through Disney. Should I do this all on my own or is it worth having a vacation planner do it? My daughter and I kinda like doing everything ourselves.

    Hello Bonnie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    One of my personal favorite aspects of a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation is all of the planning that happens before we arrive. While it is definitely a lot to handle and Authorized Disney Vacation Planners are trained to help you get the most out of your vacation, there is something about planning your own Walt Disney World Resort vacation that is an exciting part of the Endlessly Magical experience.

    Authorized Disney Vacation Planners are subsidized by Walt Disney World Resort for any vacation packages they arrange for Guests, making them an affordable option. With tools like My Disney Experience, it is possible to create a Walt Disney World Resort vacation that is more personalized to your family's needs and wishes than any Travel Agent could arrange.

    Your first step to planning your own Endlessly Magic begins with getting comfortable using My Disney Experience. From here, you can arrange FastPass+ Selections, Advanced Dining Reservations, Check-In Online, plan your own Itinerary, and more.

    Outside of My Disney Experience, the Walt Disney World online site has all of the information you need for booking a Resort Hotel, buying Theme Park Tickets and any Events and Tours you may be interested in participating in.

    If your you and your daughter enjoy doing things like this yourselves, I recommend that you do it. You'll find that planning your own Walt Disney World Resort vacation becomes a treasured part of each visit.

    Happy Planning!
