    Am I crazy to think I can have a good time with planning a week before I leave???

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Fernanda!

    Crazy? Nah. Crazy-cool!

    You are going to have a magically good time on your visit to Walt Disney World! Take a few minutes now to put together some plans for each day of your stay.

    First? Get organized. You can do thIs! If you have not done so, create a My Disney Experience Account, then download My Disney Experience app. Both will help you keep track of FastPass+ plans, Advanced Dining Reservations, character greetings and more.

    FastPass+ is great for avoiding lines. Be sure to read the link above to determine how to make your plans. Guests cancel various details of their visits to WDW as plans change, so you may find FastPass+ slots, Advanced Dining Reservations and much more available now, as some guests may release their plans as their touring options change. That's great for you!

    When looking to plan your days at this point, I would grab three FastPass+ options in a park each day, arranging them as early in the day as you'd like. When you use that third FP+, you'll be able to get a fourth FP+; use the 4th, you'll be able to get a 5th, etc.

    If looking for an Advanced Dining Reservation that fits in with your plans, remember, too, that guests cancel up to 24 hours in advance without penalty. Thus, you might find just what you're looking for the day OF your stay. If not, don't forget to look at dining locations that are in a WDW Resort hotel that is adjacent to the park you'll be in that day. Some of these gems are our absolute favorites!

    Send more questions as you plan; we love to help!
