So if it’s your first trip, or 21st time to visit the Mouse, here is one of my favorite online resources for planning information to get you started on your way to a fun-filled vacation to sunny Orlando: is a great web site with all sorts of resources that make vacation planning easier. This site covers

This website will look familiar to many Disney travel veterans.  This is Disney’s main website for vacation planning, and the site that pops up when you Google for information. It’s a good site, and I personally use it a lot to look at prices and restaurant menus. You can get price quotes for vacations, make reservations, and check on existing reservations. is loaded with bright-colored  photos to get you doubly excited about your future trip. My kids enjoy cruising around the parks pages just to look at the photos.

Because the site is interactive, you can order a FREE planning DVD, print out FREE customized maps, and using the Vacation Package Guide, get personalized recommendations on vacation packages. I’m all about FREE!  With a high quality production value, kids will love watching the planning DVD before you leave for your trip, and you will too.

Right now, there are two specials worth mentioning on the website.

  • For $68 per person, per day, you can enjoy a six-night package for a family of four at Disney’s All Star Resorts.
  • You can save $40 and get special vacation financing when you apply for the Disney Rewards Visa.

Have I ever booked a reservation straight from the website? No.  I actually like calling the Disney’s number, 1-407-WDI-SNEY so I can talk to a knowledgable Cast Member.  But as more and more vacation are booked online, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this route to someone else.

So with this many resources at hand in one spot, it’s time to start planning your Walt Disney World vacation today at Once you get your trip planned and booked, join Mouze Kateerz on Facebook for Disney World photos each day. Just what you need to get you all excited about your next vacation…
