    I won theme park tickets! Awesome, right? But I've only gone to Disney World using a package, staying onsite, and using a dining plan. It makes my head spin thinking of booking everything separately. Do you have any tips about where I should start? Thanks!

    Hi Corrina!

    How exciting!!! Congratulations! You can begin by visiting and signing up for your "My Disney Experience" account. You can also download the My Disney Experience App! Here you can beginning your planning! You can search for your hotel, dining and even plan your itineraries! The best thing is that once you plan, you can link all of your reservations and view and modify your plans from your mobile phone! I like to start my planning by selecting my Disney hotel. I base my decision on what type of setting we are in the mood for (safari, camping, luxury, whimsical, etc). Once the hotel is selected, I look up the park hours for the days I will be visiting, paying close attention to the Extra Magic Hours. Then I plan my park visits and dining reservations accordingly. I try to visit the parks on the days they have the extra magic hours so that we can enjoy it to the max! Hope this helps!!

    I am sure that you will have tons of more questions! If I can help you further, send them my way!

    Happy Planning!
