When planning your trip to Walt Disney World, don’t wait until the last minute, expecting everything to be available for you. While this might have worked for Cinderella, don’t expect to show up at Disney World and things to work out magically. That doesn’t mean the agency has pulled off some last minute magic for guests but we know people also love anticipating the magic. Here are some reasons to start planning your Disney trip now.
#1. Start Planning Now So You Can Work Out Schedule Conflicts
You may want to start now planning for a week, where there are no issues with scheduling. Schedule conflicts are a big issue, when it comes to planning your Disney Trip. The sooner you have this part figured out, the sooner you can book your trip.
#2. Start Planning Now So You Can Work with a Disney Travel Agent
If you begin now with planning your Disney vacation and find it overwhelming, not to worry. A Travel Agent who lives for Disney, can help you with all the headaches and questions that might be going through your mind. Seriously, they can take care of everything and are commission by Disney, so cost you nothing! They will talk to you about what your family wants and needs not what everyone recommends that worked for their family! (so what they traveled with 2 teens and you have a 3 and 5 year old…it’s the same planning right? NO)
#3. Start Planning Now to Take Advantage of Deals & Discounts
If you’re worried about missing any deals or discounts by booking too early, there’s no need to fret. Your EZ Dis specialist will “code watch” for you and notify you of future discounts that may apply to your already booked stay.
#4. Start Planning Now, So You Can Stay At Your Favorite Resort
Do you plan on staying at a certain one of Disney’s Resorts? Waiting too long might mean you miss getting to book with the resort that has the right amenities for you. You may be able to reserve a room at the resort you want but could find the least expensive option is already sold out. Booking early will let you get what you were looking for, not the left-overs.
#5. To Lock in Your Dinner Reservations ASAP
There are several great character sit-down dining options to enjoy with your family down in Disney. Some are so popular, that you need to book 180 days in advance, just for a table. I know this seems ridiculous, but hey, hundreds of people will gladly take your seat.
6. So You Don’t Miss Out on FastPasses+
You need to sit down with your family and find out what rides you want to get FastPasses+ for in each theme park. Planning the times for each ride strategically will save you time, and ensure each family member gets to ride the ones their excited about. Getting FastPasses+ early for these rides will lock you into a time, so that your plan is not messed with.
#7 Your Child Will Only be Young Once
Every age is great and different to travel to Disney. Some of the best memories we have were the smiles our infant gave characters. Sure, they’ll never remember it but we will (and since we pay, isn’t that what counts?)
#8 Now More Than Ever
There are new things to explore in all of the Disney parks from Coast to Coast. Everything from family things such as Frozen Ever After, Navi River Journey, Animation Classes and more to thrills like Slinky Dog Dash, Flight of Passage and Galaxy’s Edge. There are new memories to be created.
