As summer approaches millions of people are planning their family vacations. Walt Disney World is one of the most popular family summer vacations there is on the face of the earth! With children out of school it is a most convenient time for people to travel. Now, on top of the crowds add all of the major overhauling and drastic changes Walt Disney World has gone through just within the past six months and it is a recipe for disaster if you are not properly prepared and thoroughly planned for your vacation months before you even leave the house!
Did you know you are able to book all of your dining reservations 180 days prior to your arrival? That is six months before you even get there! Were you aware these reservations can be booked up solid in the blink of an eye? Also one of the big changes in WDW is the Fast Pass Plus which is now reserved online 90 days prior to your arrival. Gone are the days of getting to the parks at your leisure and getting a hard Fast Pass ticket in your hand.
Now, don't get me wrong. I am not looking to make a WDW vacation sound unattractive because of all the work that goes into it. If planned just right, it can be one of the most rewarding vacations you and your loved ones will experience. In order to plan it correctly you must either know all there is to know about the changes in place and how they effect the Parks, The Resorts, Dining, Attractions etc. or be planning the trip with someone who does.
