Trip planning checklist
☑ January or early February: 180 days before your trip begins, make dining reservations (website is available at 6 a.m. eastern, phone lines are open at 7 a.m. Eastern). Use the dates on the calendar to show you when to do that.
☑ March - May: book flights (tips on finding best flights)
☑ May: if you're staying onsite, you can start making FastPass+ reservations 60 days before your trip begins. Use dates on the calendar to see when you can start making FP+ reservations online beginning at 7 a.m. eastern time. You can also check in online for your resort room if you'd like.
☑ July: pack (packing list to help you) and go to Disney World!
☑ August: finalize PhotoPass pics and order within 45 days after your trip
