Merry Christmas to all!
Finally, all the shopping and preparation for Christmas is over. All the presents have been opened and the kids are enjoying all of their new toys.
This is traditionally (based on my historical traffic numbers) the time that Mom and Dad start to plan for next year’s vacation.
In an effort to steer you in the right direction, this post is comprised mostly of links that will point you in the right direction but also provide a little guidance too.
There is a lot of planning that goes into a Disney vacation (if you are doing it right). here are a few posts that discuss planning topics. The first one is my big Planning Post that steps you through the planning timeline to let you know what to focus on and when,
Theme Park Tickets are one of the Big Two expenses for your Disney vacation and it is currently required to have them in order to make Theme Park Reservations.
There are 2 kinds of Disney Military tickets, the Disney Armed Forces Salute Tickets and the Regular Disney Military Ticket Discount for Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
The Salute tickets are highly discounted but come with more rules and only in limited lengths and options.
The Regular Tickets are slightly discounted and come in a wide variety of lengths and options and can be the right choice for longer trips.
Here are some informational posts to guide you:
You room is the other big item for your Disney Vacation!
Here are some posts that will provide a bunch of information for you to consider.
Disney offers Salute discounts on rooms too. The discount amount varies by room type and other variables.
You can doo all of your own work to check prices and reserve your room yourself, or as I recommend use a Disney Specializing Travel Agent.
Ears of Experience is my recommended agent. They are a military family owned business and make more military reservations than any other agent! Plus an experienced military spouse will handle your reservation!
