Planning a Walt Disney World vacation can seem like an overwhelming task. But many people find the planning to be the most fun. How can this be, you say? Well, the planning enthusiasts often know the tools to use – “in every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.” Lets look at some of the apps and sites that can help you approach the planning of your next vacation with a twinkle instead of a scowl.
- WaltDisneyWorld.com – Yes, it really can be that simple. This website gives you the opportunity to check out the parks and resorts. You can purchase your park tickets, reserve a room (or rooms, depending upon the size of your party) at your favorite resort, and make your dining reservations. On this site, you can also access and set up a profile in MyDisneyExperience (also an app you can add to your iPhone or android phone). MyDisneyExperience puts all the information and planning for your vacation at your fingertips. You can even schedule your FastPass+ here.
- Disney Vacation Planning DVD – This free DVD is updated annually and includes tips to help you make your vacation a dream come true. Some Disney fans order a new one each year, but if you want to conserve space in your DVD collection, you can watch it online.
- WDW Customized Maps – On the WaltDisneyWorld.com website, you have to option to create free theme park maps highlighting your family’s favorite attractions and shows. When complete, you can print your maps at home, or have them printed and mailed to you. These can become treasured reminders of trips you’ve made to Walt Disney World.
- Touring Plans – We have partnered with Touring Plans to offer one of Chip’s favorite planning and park tools. The Crowd Calendar & Lines App is near and dear to us here on Chip and Co and something we use pretty regular.
