    Hi! How can start booking reservations?

    Welcome to planDisney, Amanda! Your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is just around the river bend. I typically pack weeks in advance because I'm so excited! Do you have those Minnie Mouse ears tucked into your suitcase yet?

    And the good news is that you can start booking all your reservations, Amanda! I'd like to talk about some plans you can make now to help your visit be its most fabulous. First, if you still need to book a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, I'd highly recommend doing so online. Staying in the magic is one of my favorite parts of a trip. The theming and complimentary transportation would be enough to convince me, but the perk of entering the Theme Parks early seals the deal. 

    Next, check Theme Park Availability and purchase your Theme Park Tickets. Once you complete the ticket purchase, you can choose which park you want to visit each day. If you've chosen the Park Hopper option, the current procedure is to start your day at the theme park where you make the reservation, and then you can hop to another park after 2:00.

    Finally, you are within the booking window to make some dining reservations. My family typically likes to schedule one Table Service meal each day. This is our time to relax and recharge by sharing photos and planning the remainder of our day. If availability is limited for restaurants in the theme park, you can also check nearby resort restaurants and Disney Springs. And the Quick Service options are more convenient than ever thanks to Mobile Ordering through the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    Amanda, I'm sending you pixie dust galore so you can make some magical bookings for your upcoming visit. Please stop by and ask me any other questions you might have. It's my pleasure to help!

    Magic awaits,
