We started planning our first Disney vacation in 2014 (went for the first time in 2015) as a way to have something exciting to focus on in the midst of our struggles with infertility. We had no idea we’d get addicted to the most magical place on earth like we did, and no idea that it would save our sanity after our miscarriage last year. While we haven’t become a “Disney every year” family, we do go every other year, and we’re currently planning our third Disney vacation for May 2019!
Quite often people tell me “I want to plan a Disney vacation but have no idea where to start”, so that is what this post is going to focus on today! Disney vacations are not like any other trip you plan. I spend fewer hours planning to go to the beach or the mountains. There is a lot of detail involved with Disney, and while it can look overwhelming from the outside, once you’re in it you understand why there is so much to plan. From dining to FastPasses, to touring plans so you can avoid long lines, there is just a lot to figure out. But the good news is there are so many free resources available to not only making planning more fun but to also take the hard work out of it. Whether or not you have children to take to Disney, there is something at the parks for everyone.
