    I am wanting to plan a trip soon but I am not sure where to begin. I will have my 2 year old boy with me so I want to make it as exciting for him as possible and plan things that are good for his age!

    Hi Maggie,

    It's wonderful to see you dropping by planDisney with a trip to plan!

    I can imagine your son's excitement when you arrive, so let's get started with the planning! First, pick your dates. Once you pick your dates, you can then do some comparison pricing of vacation packages. Take a look at all of the resort options in the Disney Resorts Collection. Given that your son is 2-years old, I would recommend Disney's Art of Animation, All-Star Movies, All-Star Music, or All-Star Sports Resorts. The Big Blue Pool at Disney's Art of Animation Resort is AMAZING! Be sure to check the Special Offers when you book!

    Once you book a vacation package, be sure to link it in your My Disney Experience account. After it's linked, you will need to make Disney Park Pass system reservations for each day that you plan to visit the theme parks. Decide whether or not you will purchase MagicBands for the trip. Our girls still love MagicBands and, for us, they make it easier to scan into the parks and scan for Disney PhotoPass photos.

    Know that we are in the midst of The Word's Most Magical Celebration, so I recommend that you choose your dates and make a reservation as soon as possible. If you decide to fly, also know that Disney's Magical Express® transportation is ending this year, so you will need to make transportation arrangements from the Orlando International Airport if your trip occurs January 1, 2022 or beyond.

    Maggie, download the My Disney Experience Mobile App, review Disney Genie service, check the height requirements of Attractions prior to your visit, and make a few character dining reservations. Just search dining reservations and filter by character dining. Pick up some matching shirts and pack for your Incredible visit!

    Magic and memories,
