The ULTIMATE Guide to Making Your Disney Vacation Magical

If you follow Serendipity and Spice then you know I am a total Disney nerd!!  I love all things Disney and I try to talk Hubs into going ALL THE TIME!  In fact, Hubs just gave me permission to start planning our next Disney vacation to coincide with the opening of Star Wars Land so I’m all over it!

When planning the ultimate Disney vacation there’s more than just booking your room.  Disney is all about the magical moments and creating lasting memories for your family.  I mean, you are spending thousands of dollars on this vacation so you want to make sure you make it as memorable and magical as possible….right?!

Disney Vacation Planning Tips

For starters, planning WHEN to go is a top priority.  If you have a bit of flexibility in scheduling then check out When Is The Best Time To Visit Disney World — not only will this help you find the best time for pricing but also the best time for lower crowds and special promotions.

If you’re planning a trip to Disney World during the summer months then you’ll definitely want to follow these Tips for Staying Cool at Disney….your kids will be thanking you….there’s nothing worse than a hot kid standing in a long line experiencing fun overload!

When it comes time for packing you’ll definitely want the Ultimate Disney Vacation Packing List so that you don’t forget a thing!  Grab the free printable packing list here .

To do the dining plan or not?  That is one of the biggest Disney vacation debates of all time!  Many people say it’s not worth the money– I personally think it’s worth every single cent!  Typically we try to travel while Disney is having their promotion with the Dining Plan for free but last year we didn’t get the dining plan and I swore we would NEVER do Disney again without it.  I love that the dining plan gives us the ability to disconnect from the cost of every single meal…we don’t have to stress about the kids being finicky and not eating the $120 meal that we just purchased so they could meet Jake and Sophia.  If Little Man wants a Mickey shaped pretzel then he gets one without a thought because it’s part of his snack credits.  He knows that once those credits are gone then they’re gone…it definitely cuts down on the “I wants” when at the parks.  You be the judge.. read 101 Disney Dining Plan Tips from The Frugal South.

You could literally get lost in the sea of Disney knowledge out there!  But my absolute BEST piece of advice is to work with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner….it costs you nothing and can save you tons of money!  Authorized Disney Vacation Planners are experts in all things Disney and they are privy to special promotions, they know the insider secrets, and they can always update you to the best deal available.  Plus, they are full of information about making your dining reservations, the best spots with the best deals, and remind you when it’s time to book your fast passes.

Finally, go get the e-book Insider’s Guide to Disney World!  You’ll seriously want to print this book out and take it with you because it’s packed full of so many tips to add a little more magic to your vacation.
