    do you have vacation planners that can assist me with planning a family vacation?

    Hi Doug!

    Welcome to planDisney! We are a group of Disney enthusiasts and experienced Disney vacationers who are Guests, just like you, here to offer tips, tricks, and advice on planning your perfect Disney vacation! While we are not able to plan your trip from start to finish, if you'd like to book yourself online, you can submit specific questions to us here on planDisney and we can make recommendations to help you make your choices of resort, dining, and activities along the way, or answer specific planning questions.

    If you are looking for someone to walk you through the process, there are two options for you. You can call the Walt Disney World Resort and speak to a Cast Member who can assist you with booking a Disney Resort Collection Hotel and tickets. Advance Dining Reservations can be made online 60 days before the day of your visit, or if you are staying at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel, you can book the entire length of your stay beginning 60 days before check-in.

    The other idea, and what I think I might recommend based on your question, is to reach out to an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. These are travel agents that are well versed in booking Disney vacations and can walk you through the entire process from start to finish. They can present multiple quotes for you in different budget ranges, and suggest resorts and dining to suit the size and ages of your travel party. Many people mistakenly believe that using a Travel Agent means an additional cost, but that is not the case! You’ll pay the same for your resort and tickets for your Walt Disney World Vacation regardless of whether you book yourself online or use an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. To find one, use the search feature of your favorite internet browser and search for “Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.” You should see multiple options to choose from!

    Once you've spoken with a vacation planner, let us know if you have questions or need help choosing between resorts, want our recommendation on the best character meal for big kids, how to use Genie+, what not to miss in Toy Story Land, or any other questions you have about your visit. We love talking Disney and are here to help!
