    I was wondering if I could be mailed a disney vacation guide, information on planning vacation, and anything else to look over to help plan our vacation.

    Hello, Jodie, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question for the Panel. I see that you're planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort next October. I love all of the spooktacular fun and festive fall décor around the parks and resorts during that time of year!

    Disney is no longer mailing out printed materials to Guests, however, I'll be happy to tell you how you can find everything you need to plan a magical Walt Disney World vacation online. The best place to begin your Disney vacation planning is On this page you can explore all four theme parks, browse through a vacation planning guide, and even discover current resort packages

    Guide maps for each theme park can be found online right on the park's homepage. For example, visit Magic Kingdom Park's homepage and scroll down until you see a link for Guest Services on the left. Next to this link you'll find a blue arrow and a Magic Kingdom Guide Map link. Click that link and the current park map will open up. Please keep in mind these maps change throughout the year, especially with the seasons and special events.

    Another online resource for Disney vacation planning is right here on! Not only can you search for thousands of questions on our homepage, our Panel Extras page is also full of extra vacation planning advice. Earlier this year, the planDisney Panel took time to share 21 Tips for Your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation and our personal Best Tips for Selecting a Resort. One of our most recent Extras is Walt Disney World Greatest Hits and Classic Must-Trys. If you don't want to miss the classic attractions such as "it's a small world" or Pirates of the Caribbean, this Classic Disney Itinerary is for you!

    I would suggest exploring the official Disney Parks YouTube channel as well. There are dozens of video playlists to watch online, including "Taking a Disney Parks Vacation" and "Virtual Disney Rides." planDisney also has a Video Library on Be sure to take a look at all of the planning tips and must-dos from my fellow Panelists.

    Jodie, please let me know if I can help you with any other questions as you plan your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Have a magical day!
