Find the Best Disney World Vacation Information

  1. AllEars.net: It’s the be-all, end-all of Disney World information.
  2. DIS Boards: This is an e-mail forum where you can find tons of info. It’s a great way to stay up-to-the-minute on what’s going on in the parks and what’s working for others. It’s also a place to find out if there are any room codes (discounts) being offered that can save you money. Many people actually post from DW while they’re on vacation! I would never have time for that!
  3. Mousesavers.com: Lots of
    write-ups about trips and even more information on how to get things
    cheap! She also has a monthly e-mail newsletter you’ll find handy. She
    also posts whether there are any room codes (discounts) being offered.
  4. Planning Strategy Calculator for Disney Reservations: This site will basically let you mark which restaurants/shows you want and then will help you figure out when you need to book them. Remember, you want to book your dining asap—which is 90 days from your arrival date. You usually can’t book anything until exactly 90 days out.
  5. The Mouse for Less: Just what it says. I haven’t used this site as much. They have some good educational downloads for Epcot. And YES, EPCOT is FUN!
  6. Tiffany Town Cars: You will need a way to get to your hotel from the airport. You’ll pay as much for this as for a cab, if I remember correctly. We’ve used these people before and had no problems. Check on the DIS Boards for more recent reviews; there is usually a discussion about this somewhere. Also, their web site has a coupon.
  7. Disney Height Requirements: Just FYI. I’m not sure how old/big your kids are. This is handy so there is no disappointment after waiting in line.
  8. What to Say to the Characters: Cute thread on what some people have said to characters and those characters’ reactions.
  9. MagicTrips.com:
    This site is currently under construction, but when it’s finished it
    will have a laundry list of things to consider. This site also helps
    with a month-by-month breakdown of what you should do when (e.g., when
    to make reservations for hotel, reservations for dining (called ADRs),
    etc.).

Oh, how we’d LOVE another Disney vacation! It’s been 10 years since we went last! I need to put pencil to paper and figure out just how much $$ it would take and just start socking it away.

I am so happy you are posting this information. My husband and I are going to take our son to Disney World in Feb or March and we have no idea what we are doing. I can’t wait to look at these sites to familiarize myself with DisneyWorld! We are travel novices and DisneyWorld freshmen!

Great sites! Thanks for including the height requirements–I’ve seen so many little ones wait in loooooooong lines just to be turned away. :-(
