    We used to be able to order park maps and info to receive via snail-mail... Is that still a possibility? My daughter is planning our first Disney World trip for her 16th birthday and I'd love to have some hands-on stuff.

    Hi, Sheena!  Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hEAR that you and your daughter are planning your first visit to Walt Disney World Resort!  A first trip combined with a 16th birthday celebration sounds practically perfect in every way!  Be sure to pick up your complimentary "First Visit" and "Happy Birthday" buttons at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel's front desk or any Guest Relations location so that Cast Members will know that you're celebrating.

    In order to conserve resources, Walt Disney World Resort no longer sends vacation planning materials through the mail, but Hakuna Matata, no worries!  I'm happy to tell you that there is a wealth of useful information online to help with your vacation resEARch.  I would recommend that you and your daughter begin by exploring the Walt Disney World website to learn about all there is to see and do.  If you're interested in guide maps of each theme park, they can be found by using the following links:
    Magic Kingdom Park
    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    You can simply view these maps on your computer, or you may print them out if you wish to have a hard copy.  Please be aware that you may need to use larger size printer paper or adjust your printer's settings to fit the entire map on your page.

    Our planDisney website is another great resource when you're planning a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth.  Be sure to look over the Panel Extras section and our expansive Video Library for lots of helpful tips and useful information.  If you'd like to learn more about the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, if you want to know the best attractions for thrill-seekers, if you'd like a restaurant recommendation for a birthday celebration, or if you have any other vacation planning questions, please visit us again.

    See ya real soon!
