    Hi trying to plan a visit for the first time can you assist?

    Hi Veronica! Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    We would LOVE to help you plan your very first vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Whether you want some advice about how many days to visit or where to stay, or you're hoping for some help mastering Walt Disney World lingo like "Park Hopper" and "Lightning Lane", we've got you covered! Let's see what we can come up with to help you make this vacation your most magical one yet!

    The very first thing I would suggest is to head to the Walt Disney World Resort website and start browsing! You'll find that the Resort is made up of four Theme Parks, two Water Parks, over 25 Disney Resorts Collection hotels and a shopping, dining, and entertainment district of Disney Springs.  With so much to explore you'll find that no matter how many days you plan on staying you'll wish you had more time!

    Take a look through the Disney Resorts Collection hotels and see if there is one that fits your fancy as well as your budget.  With three categories of Resorts, you're sure to find a Value, Moderate or Deluxe Resort that works for you and your party.  Here at planDisney we also have Disney Resort hotel Pocket Guides that will give you a quick overview of each incredible Resort.

    When thinking about purchasing your Theme Park Tickets you'll want to decide how many days you wish to stay and whether you would like to visit one Park per day with a Standard Theme Park Ticket or whether you would like to be able to visit more than one Park per day with the Park Hopper Option. Make sure to check the Theme Park Reservation calendar first and then make your Theme Park Reservations after you've completed your order!

    After these BIG decisions have been made you're ready to think about Advance Dining Reservations, whether or not to purchase Disney Genie+ Service and any Enchanting Extras that you may want to add to your trip!

    If this all seems a little overwhelming you always have the no-cost option of using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner to help you create a practically perfect vacation.  You can easily find these with a quick internet search!

    As you navigate your way through the planning process you know we'll be here to help you every step of the way.  Feel free to come back and ask us any more questions that you may have.

    Happy Planning!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
