Five Tips for Walt Disney World Vacation Planning (and two mistakes to avoid)

Planning a Walt Disney World vacation is a big undertaking. There is so much to consider and so many choices to be made. Disney vacation planning can easily overwhelm even the most experienced travelers.

Before you begin booking your Walt Disney World vacation, it helps to have a plan. These five tips will help even the novice Disney World traveler to have the confidence it takes to plan and book the best possible Disney vacation for you and your family.

As a bonus, be sure to listen to the full podcast (Episode 8 of 1923 Main Street: A Daddy Daughter Disney Travel Podcast) to hear two important mistakes to avoid when planning your Walt Disney World vacation.

Five Rules for Successful Walt Disney World Vacation Planning

  1.  Stay Onsite at Walt Disney World Resort
    There are many great reasons why this makes sense and we discuss them all.
  2. Book Your Trip as Early as Possible
    If you're one of those travelers who prefers to wait (for whatever reason): don't! We'll tell you why it's important to book your Walt Disney World vacation as early as possible.
  3. Book Your Dining as Soon as You are Allowed
    The early bird gets the worm and that has never been more true than it is with respect to booking your Walt Disney World dining. Find out why in Episode 8 of 1923 Main Street.
  4. Book Your FastPasses as Soon as You are Allowed
    It isn't just Disney dining that needs your attention. Knowing your FastPass booking date can make or break your Walt Disney World vacation.
  5. Get to the Park 30 Minutes Before Opening
    Yes, the early bird is back again. Getting to the park early can have a major impact on the enjoyment of your entire Disney day. Amelia and I fill you in on exactly why this is the case.

With a little knowledge and awareness, anyone can be on their way to booking a well structured and thoughtfully planned Walt Disney World vacation. These five tips (and two key mistakes to avoid) will help you get started on a positive note.
