    Hi can pls tell me what is Personalised Holiday Planning Emails as I have received this "Disney Magical Extra" with a booking given to me as a present.

    Hiya Mark!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so happy that you found us hEAR. Thank you for sending this Disneyland Resort vacation planning question our way!

    This sounds like a very jolly holiday indeed! First off, this magical gifter sounds like one incredible person - be sure to keep them close and on your nice list! I believe the 'Personalized Holiday Planning Emails' are marketing emails that are sent out every few weeks leading up to your vacation to assist with not only planning but also showcase activities that you simply cannot miss. While you may have missed out on these already, the good news is that I can catch you up!

    As far as planning, you'll want to be sure that you've made your Park Pass Reservations. In addition to needing a Theme Park Admission Ticket, each guest also needs to reserve which theme parks they're planning on playing in and on which days. (I'm told this gives Mickey a heads up on knowing when and where to expect you!) You can view your current Park Pass Reservations hEAR in your My Disneyland Account; if you still need to make Park Pass Reservations, you can view the Park Pass Reservation Availability Calendar by clicking hEAR.

    Another step in planning is to think about Disney Dining. Locations that accept Reservations, which are traditional sit-down, table-service meals, open their booking calendar 60 days in advance of every Disney day. Some locations may have same-day availability if you were to just show up and ask for a table, but your best bet would be to either try to make a reservation now, or to utilize the Mobile Dine Walk-Up Waitlist when in the parks. If you're all set on Dining Reservations, now would also be a great time to check out your Quick Service dining options by browsing the menus at these locations.

    As far as planning tips and what you cannot miss, that's a hard one because I want to recommend everything! The Main Street Electrical Parade, which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this yEAR, will still be running nightly during your visit. The brand new Disney Genie+ add-on product includes access to the digital downloads of all Disney PhotoPass Photos captured on the same day of Disney Genie+ use. Be sure to check out the Disney Parks Blog for everything from attractions and shopping to seasonal treats, sweets, and eats!

    I hope that this helped to clEAR your question up, Mark! Be sure to check out and follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account for even more tips and tricks! And If you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
