    I am taking my nephew to Disney World for his 10th birthday don't know where to begin to plan, do you have advice or a checklist as to what to do 120, 90, 60 & 30 days out from our trip?

    Hi, Jenni! You are an awesome aunt! I can't think of a better birthday gift than a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Start your planning by setting up a My Disney Experience account on the Walt Disney World Resort website. If your nephew's birthday is within the next several months, you should book your vacation package now! I recommend that you stay in a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection. Doing so will give your nephew (and you) the opportunity to live in the magic! If your nephew is a huge Disney fan then he will really enjoy Disney's Art of Animation Resort! This heavily themed Disney resort has rooms, pools, and other amenities based upon The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Cars, and Finding Nemo!

    Once you book your vacation package, including theme park tickets, you will want to book your Disney Park Pass reservations right away! This is especially important if your nephew is a fan of Star Wars! Disney's Hollywood Studios is home to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - a land where Guests become completely immersed in the world of Star Wars! This park is very popular and reservations fill-up quickly! 

    Finally, the most important date to mark on your calendar is 60-days prior to your vacation arrival date! That is the time you can begin making advanced reservations for Disney Dining experiences! There are some very popular dining experiences such as Chef Mickey's and Topolino's Terrace where favorite Disney characters host breakfast each morning! Chef Mickey's might be perfect as the breakfast is themed as a big celebration! Be sure to book your reservation on the morning of your 60-day mark! Your nephew is one lucky kid!
