Walt Disney World: The Countdown Begins

Planning a trip to Walt Disney World can be both exciting and frustrating. There are so many attractions, shows, and restaurants to visit and experience that you can have a hard time prioritizing. You can find something new every time you visit. I just found out about a snack bar in Adventureland today that I had never noticed in any of my prior visits. I can't wait to get out there again and try an Citrus Swirl.

Walt Disney World doesn't make it easy on vacation planners either. With 19 resorts to pick from just narrowing down the hotel can be quite challenging. Don't even get me started on the restaurants. Every trip you leave wishing you had tried just one more place.

We are currently planning the next trip and we are doing our best to keep the families of authors of Walt Disney travel books well fed. As we purchase more and more I am finding myself more and more confused. Do we take a longer trip and stay at a value or moderate resort or shorter trip and a deluxe resort? Where do we make our ADR's? Do we get the standard dining plan or the deluxe? When do the questions stop?

The closer we get to booking a vacation the more questions and little must "do's" we have added to our list. We haven't been to Walt Disney World since our honeymoon in 2003. We just kind of threw that trip together at the last minute. This is a very different story this time around. By the time we take the trip I am sure that we will have down to the minute itineraries that have potty breaks scheduled. Maybe that is a little extreme. This is absolutely going to be the best planned trip we have ever taken though.

Our trip is still pretty far away but we are excited for the time to come and confused on where to stay, eat, and play.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who plans way ahead. ;) And happy to see you have a Passporter in your list of guidebooks, PP rocks!

Hope you've made some headway in the planning!

I agree that planning a Disney World Vacation can be very confusing but at the same time, extremely exciting. There is so much to choose from which can make it hard to decide, but it also means that you will never get bored. I always enjoy planning my Disney World Vacations. I try to be as prepared as possible but always leave enough room to be spontanious (which can be difficult considering how far in advance some restaurants are booked). I have recently started by own disney blog. I would love if you can check it out and leave a comment. It is always great to hear feedback from fellow Disney Fans.
