    So we are taking our first family vacation to Disney World in 2 WEEKS (opening showed up in our timeshare). LAst minute thing. Room is about 10 miles from Disney world. What are things that I should plan to do and ticket recommendations not too pricey.

    Hi, Brandy!

    A last minute trip to Walt Disney World is so exciting! Get packing, because Mickey Mouse cannot wait to see you!

    Start with opening a My Disney Experience account. Add each member of your travel party to your account. Then choose your ticket type. I suggest the 4-Park Magic Ticket. This allows you to visit each of the 4 theme parks, one park per day. When purchasing, link these tickets to your My Disney Experience account. Once linked you can book your FastPass+ selections, 3 per day per guest.

    After purchasing your tickets, you will receive a receipt/email for your tickets. You can pick them up at any ticket window or Guest Service location once you arrive in Walt Disney World. These tickets will be used to enter the theme parks and for entry for your FastPass+ selections.

    My last suggestion is to book a few dining reservations. Select restaurants that are in the park you plan to visit. For example, Crystal Palace for your Magic Kingdom day or Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater when at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    If you have any last minute questions, let us know! We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
