    Planning a trip to disneyworld for November 2016. Haven't been to disneyworld in over 15yrs. Should I start booking and planning restaurants and activities now? We will stay in the resort but can not decide on meal plan.

    Hi, Michelle!
    I'm so excited you have a chance to return to Walt Disney World Resort for the first time in 15 years! So much has changed!

    Since you are planning to stay on Disney property, you can start booking activity and Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance of the first day of your trip (up to ten straight days). You can set up reservations even before you decide on using a Disney Dining Plan. In my experience, a dining plan is the most affordable when you choose to book a lot of table service meals and plan to eat a lot!

    Have fun planning your big trip! Feel free to come back to the Moms Panel page and ask me any other questions that might pop up!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
