Get Ready for an Adventure!

Your vacation is booked, and now it’s time to plan out the details! Here’s a quick guide to everything that you need to know to plan the perfect Walt Disney World vacation!

My Disney Experience

Now that your deposit is paid, you can start your planning online before you hit the parks! Disney has introduced MyDisneyExperience for all guests to get a jumpstart on their planning. Once you register/log in, you will be able to link all your resort reservations, dining, and family and friends traveling with you.

Once you’re in your MyDisneyExperience account, you can link your reservation by going to the “MyDisneyExperience” tab and selecting “My Reservations & Tickets” and then “Link Resort Reservation”. At that point, you’ll enter your confirmation number and last name to link the reservation. You can also download the free My Disney Experience app on your smartphone from the app store. This will allow you to access your magical itinerary on the go!


You will also be able to customize your MagicBands in your account! These bands contain your admission to the parks, allow you to charge items to your hotel room account, get fastpasses, use dining credits, etc, and come in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, or grey. There are also tons of other designs and colors available at Disney World or on the ShopDisney website!


30 days before check in

Your deposit has been paid, and your final payment just has to be paid 30 days before check in. You can make as many payments as you’d like between now and then. To make a payment, you can submit your information here:

Dining Reservations

180 days before check in

There are literally hundreds of dining options available at Walt Disney World, so there’s guaranteed to be a little something for everyone! One of the best ways to take advantage of all of the options is to make dining reservations before you arrive. Many of the most popular restaurants will book up right at the 180 day opening, so if you’re wanting to score these reservations, we’ll need to get them as soon as they open. Here are a few links to help you choose your dining reservations:

Fastpass+ Reservations

60 days before check in | 30 days before check in

Fastpass+ reservations open for booking 60 days before check in if you’re staying on Disney property or 30 days before check in if you’re staying off property. You get 3 fastpasses per day that all must be used in the same park. You can read more about which fastpasses are available in each park and which ones might be best for you here:

I know, this seems like a lot {and it is}, but it will be worth it once you get to Walt Disney World! If you have questions about what might work best for your family, feel free to contact me!
