4 Ways to Bring Disney to You!

Looking to Bring Disney to You?

I’m getting the Disney itch! It happens every 4 years like clockwork! 

  • 2008: Hubby and I went on an amazing honeymoon in Disney World.
  • 2012: Four year anniversary trip to Disney World.
  • 2016: We took our almost three year old on her first Disney World vacation. (Hint: kids under three do not need a ticket!)

So here we are in 2019.  Next year is 2020 and I am feeling a MAJOR need to plan!  I want to be booking fastpass+ reservations, choosing our dining options, making plans to check out Galaxy’s Edge (new Star Wars land coming Hollywood Studios August 2019)!

Good thing my wonderful sister is now a Travel Agent specializing in Disney World (because I think our love of the World may be genetic?)  You can contact her at jwells@taketimetotravelga.com!

Did you know that it is completely free  to use a travel agent to book your Disney vacation?  Just make sure you are using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.  We used one for the first time in 2016.  I was nervous to plan my first trip with kids.  It worked out great!  She helped me navigate the new Magic Band system and answered questions I had about My Disney Experience (the app used to book all of your ride and dining reservations).

But for now I need a way to bring Disney to me!  Lest I push the “Check out” button on the Disney booking page too soon, here is what I do to calm my inner child:

1. Drink tea from one of my favorite Alice in Wonderland themed mugs.  

2. Bake something wearing my Disney apron (you can see it on the left pictured among my haul from our last trip).

3. Watch Tim Tracker on YouTube.  Any fellow Tracker fans out there?

4. Listen to a Disney podcast.  Some of my favorites are:

  •  “WDW Prep To Go” from WDW Prep School (Shannon Albert gives some amazing planning tips that will help both the seasoned and new Disney traveler)
  • “MouseChat.net” sponsored by Pixie Vacations (this is a panel of travel agents that offer some great advise if you are looking for restaurant recommendations!)
  • “The Jim Hill Media Podcast Network” (Jim Hill is a theme park historian who has some very interesting behind the scenes type stories ranging from the founding of Disneyland to recent movie releases)
