    I am planning for fall of 2019 to bring my children to WDW parks for the first time. I would like to know how early to start planning. To pay everything off and set up park visits and dining

    Greetings, Naia, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It’s never too early to begin planning your Disney Vacation and spark the excitement. I’m thrilled to hear that you want to stay at a Disney Resort hotel, where you will bask in convenient benefits and enjoy many magical experiences. To begin your planning, may I offer our free Disney Parks Vacation Videos which will prepare you for exciting adventures ahead. Then, take a look at our periodic Special Offers in building your Magic Your Way Vacation Package which will include your Disney Resort hotel, Theme Park Passes and the option to add a Disney Dining Plan. This way you will create an inclusive, pre-paid vacation package, which, you will typically receive notification by email to pay off, approximately 45 days before your arrival.

    Naia, with My Disney Experience, advanced reservations for Disney Dining can begin at 180-days before your scheduled visit, and as a Disney Resort hotel Guest, your FastPass+ planning begins at 60-days before your stay. Once booked, you can personalize your MagicBands with name and color and they will be shipped to your home in preparation for your arrival. Just be sure to book your Disney’s Magical Express® complimentary return airport shuttle service, if flying into Orlando International Airport, to assist with your arrival and departure.

    Best Disney Wishes!
