5 Ways to Build Excitement for Your Next Disney Vacation!

December 13, 2022

There’s nothing like the anticipation of an upcoming Disney trip!  With so many rides, shows, special events, and festivals, there’s always something new to look forward to.  Here are 5 fun ways that will help with your Disney vacation planning and build the excitement as you await your next Disney vacation!

Check Out Blogs, Vlogs, and Live Streams

If you haven’t been to Walt Disney World in a while, there have been quite a few changes since the reopening.  From park pass reservations to Genie+ and MagicBand+, there are lots of new components to planning a trip.  Vlogs, blogs, and live streams can help bring you up to speed on how they work and how to get the most out of your trip.  These resources are also helpful in learning about the latest attractions, EPCOT festivals, holiday parties, and more.

Discuss Your Must-Dos

Now that you know what’s new in the parks and resorts, talk to your travel party about your must-dos.  This way, you can strategize where to book your park passes and which attractions to hit first, especially if you have Early Theme Park Entry as a Disney Resort guest or Extended Evening Theme Park Hours as a guest at a Deluxe Disney Resort or Disney Deluxe Villa Resort (i.e., all DVC resorts).  

Plan Out Dining

Dining is an essential part of Disney vacation planning! Start checking out menus to get an idea of where you would like to dine.  You can make advanced dining reservations as early as 60 days from your check-in date, so mark your calendar!  Reservations can be booked online starting at 5:45am ET or by calling 407-939-3463 starting at 7am ET.  Some of the more popular restaurants, especially character dining like Chef Mickey’s, Cinderella’s Royal Table, Garden Grill, and Topolino’s Terrace, can be difficult to book, so take advantage of your 60-day booking window. Having trouble finding that perfect dining reservation? Join Unlocked Magic and utilize their dining availability finder that will send a text and email when the reservation you are looking for becomes available!

Create a Countdown

With a countdown app, you can see how many days are left until your trip every time you use your phone.  For little ones, you can also create a countdown using stickers, paper chains, or Mickey-shaped cutouts that they can use to mark the days left until the trip.  Countdowns are a fun reminder that another magical vacation is just around the corner!

Start Planning Your Outfits

Whether you like to wear outfits that go with the park you are visiting, you like to Disney bound, or you like to wear matching shirts with your family members, creating outfits can be a lot of fun.  Don’t forget to add your favorite accessories like Minnie ears or Disney hats and bags!
