Disney Travel Agent - Walt Disney World Vacation Planning

Step #1: Choosing a Walt Disney World Resort

Walt Disney World has many resorts to choose from depending on how much money you want to spend.

The resort categories are: value resorts (around $100 to $200 per night), moderate resorts (around $165 to $260 a night), and deluxe resorts (around $400 or more a night).  Pricing does change depending on the time of year.

All the resorts that are currently open in Walt Disney World: Bay Lake Tower, Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Copper Creek Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's All Star Movies Resort, Disney's All Star Music Resort, Disney's All Star Sports Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas-Kidani Village, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Beach Club Villas, Disney's Boardwalk Inn, Disney's Boardwalk Villas, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Old Key West Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter Resort, Disney's Port Orleans Riverside Resort, Disney's Riviera Resort, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, and The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

All of the Disney resorts have a special niche. The details of the resorts are listed below. ​

The resort is the smallest in Walt Disney World (WDW) and is themed after New Orleans. It has a great food court that is small, quiet, and manageable. I highly recommend trying the beignets. This New Orleans favorite is fried dough with a powered sugar topping. There is even boat transportation in the back of the resort to Disney Springs.
Rooms: The rooms sleep 4 and have 2 queen beds. There are King bed rooms as well that sleep 2 adults.

The Beach Club Resort is gorgeous and has the best and most unique pool area I have ever seen, including a sandy bottom and a lazy river. The resort is home to my favorite restaurant in the world, Cape May. The Yacht Club shares the pool area with the Beach Club. The Yacht Club has wonderful restaurants as well including: Ale & Compass and Yachtsman Steakhouse.
Rooms: The Beach Club & Yacht Club have numerous room choices that include standard rooms, pool and garden view rooms, and even suites. The rooms have either 2 queen beds, 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa, or a king bed. They sleep 5 people. At the Beach Club Villas there are deluxe studios, 1 bedroom villas, and 2 bedroom villas. The studios have a kitchenette and sleep 5. The 1 and 2 bedroom villas have a full kitchen. The 1 bedroom villas sleep 4 and the 2 bedrooms villas sleep 8 people.
You can walk out the back doors of the resorts and be on the Boardwalk, which is similar to boardwalks in New Jersey and Maryland.  You can take a 10 minute walk or a boat over to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios from the resorts as well.

Step #2: Choosing a Dining Plan (Returns in 2024)

Dining for 2024

Guests under 21 can choose (1) non-alcoholic beverage (including specialty beverages where offered). Guests over 21 can choose either one (1) single serving non-alcoholic beverage (including specialty beverages where offered) or one (1) single serving alcoholic drink within their meal entitlement.

A table service is eating in any of Disney’s full service restaurants. If it is a buffet then it includes the buffet and a non - alcoholic drink. If the restaurant is a traditional sit down restaurant the Disney Dining plan includes your non - alcoholic drink, entrée, and dessert per person. You do have to take care of the tip out of your own pocket.

A single serving non-alcoholic beverage includes items such as:
Milkshakes, Smoothies, Premium Hot chocolates, Soda, Coffee, or Tea

A single serving alcoholic beverage includes items such as:
Beer or Cider, Wine or Sangria, Mixed Drinks, and Specialty Cocktails

Note: If you choose to eat at Cinderella's Royal Table, for example, you will get charged 2 table service credits for the meal. Almost all full service restaurants are 1 table service credit.

Step #3: Choosing the length of your theme park tickets

What is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?

If you would like your little girl to have her hair done, nails, and make up like a Disney princess, then Mouse Vacation Planning can make a reservation for you at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. This salon is located in the castle in the Magic Kingdom and in Downtown Disney.

This service starts at around $65 and goes as high as $250 which would include a princess dress.
