    I am wanting to plan a trip in October and would like more info sent. Like a vacation package kit for animal kingdom lodge.

    Welcome to planDisney, Adam! I'm so glad to be able to answer a question for a fellow Texan today. I firmly believe that half of the fun of a trip to Walt Disney World Resort is in the planning, and working your way through your planning to-do list helps build anticipation for your magical vacation. 

    Disney does not send vacation planning literature through the mail but I am pleased to tell you that all of the information you need is available right at your fingertips and can be accessed instantly on the Walt Disney World Resort website. The best place to start is on the vacation planning page, which gives you an overview of the four Theme Parks, the perks of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, and a peek at what special offers are available. 

    From that page, if you click "Get Started," you'll be walked through the entire process of booking your vacation package, starting with your Resort Hotel. Enter the dates you want to stay and the number of adults and children, and click "Check Availability" for your preferred location, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. You'll then be shown all of the available room types and the price of the package. This is where you'll be able to apply any available offers as well! 

    Once you have selected the type of room you want to stay in, you can choose your tickets and add any options like Park Hopper or admission to the Water Parks. You will also be given the opportunity to view the Theme Park availability calendar to make sure that there are Disney Park Pass reservations available throughout your visit. 

    And that's it, that's all there is to it! Once you've booked your vacation package, you can make your Disney Park Pass reservations, book dining 60 days in advance of your check-in date, and add any Enchanting Extras you're interested in. If you have any questions about the planning process or want to talk to someone about booking your vacation package, you're welcome to call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations and they can assist you directly. Of course, here at planDisney, we're available to answer all of your questions about itinerary planning, special events, and everything in between, so please come back to us with your questions when you're planning your magical vacation!

    See ya real soon, Adam!

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups. In fact, we even opted out of a tropical honeymoon to spend a blissful week at Walt Disney World Resort instead! I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
