After countless hours, you’ve decided you want to head to Walt Disney World. Congratulations! I can’t explain the magic that awaits you. Your trip can also be very overwhelming if you don’t do a little bit of research before you go. There’s also such a thing as too much research. Having a little bit of nervous excitement leading up to your vacation is a good thing. Remember you don’t need to know everything before you go. Spending time here at My Pixie Dust Diary before you go will help you answer your questions and make your trip go smoothly.
First things first. Head over to the official Disney website for Walt Disney World and order your free planning DVD. Another thing to get while you’re at the Disney site is your free set of park maps that you can customize to reflect your family’s interests. It will take a couple of weeks for both of these items to arrive so be sure to order them with enough time for them to arrive before your trip. Go ahead and bookmark the Disney site – you’ll need it later on in the planning process to make Advanced Dining Reservations, check in to your resort and make FastPass+ selections!
Spend some time thinking about when you’d like to go and how long you plan staying in the area. This information will help determine your budget and your plans for your trip. You’ll also need to know who’s planning to travel with you and any special accommodations that may be needed to fit the needs of your group.
Most importantly, have fun!! You’re going to Disney World!
