    I wanna plan for going to Walt Disney World, give me step-by-step guideline on how to go there

    Hey there, Jessica!

    Welcome to planDisney, friend! I am so excited to hear that you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort. You picked an amazing year to visit. There are fabulous new nighttime spectaculars, traditional Character Greetings have recently returned, and The World's Most Magical Celebration is still going strong. But before you can start enjoying all there is to see and do at The Most Magical Place on Earth, you need to book your upcoming adventure! Let's go through all the basics so you can create the perfect itinerary and continue planning for the best trip ever. 

    The very first thing you need to do is pick the dates that work best for you and your travel party and set a budget. Once these details are secured you can get started with all the fun that comes with planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. The next step I recommend is creating a My Disney Experience account for the individual in your travel party that will be doing the majority of the planning. I also suggest that each adult in your crew makes their own account and that you link them together. If you are traveling with children, their parent or guardian should create their accounts. 

    Okay, now that everyone has an account it's time to pick your home away from home for your upcoming visit. Spend some time checking out the amazing resorts that are part of the Walt Disney World Resort Collection, and compare their amenities to the needs of your Ohana. Each resort in this collection features exclusive Guest benefits that add a little extra Disney dazzle to your stay. You may also want to spend some time comparing the four theme parks and ticket options to decide how many days of your stay you want to set aside for each location. If you are staying for 8 days or more you may want to consider two days for each park or set aside a day to enjoy all that your resort has to offer. Should you be spending five days in the park I recommend one day for each with the 5th day reserved for the park that has the most experiences on your to-do list. Four days or less makes the decision a matter of park preference. You may also want to consider the Park Hopper option, giving you tons of flexibility during your visit.

    After you have picked your resort and the number of days you want to spend in the parks, it's time to build your vacation package. You can do this online or through your preferred travel agency. And finally, after booking your package or purchasing your tickets, you'll need to make your Park Pass reservations. All four theme parks require a reservation in addition to a valid theme park ticket, making this step is essential!

    I know this is a lot of information, and there is still so much more to cover! Once your stay is booked there are dining reservations and other magical decisions to make. So stop back by planDisney anytime with your questions! 

    I hope your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical! 
    We'll see ya real soon!
