Ideal and short-on-time Disney World planning timelines – PREP049

The time it takes to plan a Disney World trip is often a surprise to many first-timers. It is a more than a little strange to have to think about what you're going to eat 6+ months ahead of time.

Today, I have an ideal Disney World planning timeline and what to do if you're short on time.

I also have a quick tip to increase your chances of getting a FastPass+ to meet Anna and Elsa.

These are notes from this episode. There's much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Quick tip of the day

People who are staying on-site and trying to get a FastPass+ to meet Anna and Elsa should log on at midnight eastern time (Updated May 19, 2016: it's now 7 a.m. eastern time) 60 days before their trip begins and book a FastPass+ for Anna and Elsa first, before booking the other days of your trip.
