Planning is the secret to a successful vacation. The Walt Disney World Resort is vast and overwhelming without a game plan. Good planning is rewarded by a far more magical Disney experience. Planning is also wonderful fun. It increases the anticipation and starts the excitement months before your vacation begins.
Planning begins with learning about the Walt Disney World Resort. Your PassPorter has all the information you need for a great vacation, and then some! Written to be complete yet concise, PassPorter can be your only guide or act as a companion to another. You can use it in a variety of ways: as a travel guide, a vacation planner, an organizer, a trip journal, and a keepsake. You can take it with you and revisit it after your trip is just a fond memory. You can personalize it with your plans, notes, souvenirs, and memories. PassPorter is the ultimate Walt Disney World Resort guide—before, during, and after your vacation.
This first chapter helps you with the initial planning stage: gathering information and budgeting. Your PassPorter then continues through the planning stages in order of priority. Sprinkled throughout are ways to personalize your trip, little-known tips, and magical Disney memories.
Above all else, have fun with your plans, both now and when you reach the Walt Disney World Resort. Leave room for flexibility, and include time to relax and refresh. You might be tempted to try to see and do it all, but an overly ambitious plan will be more exhausting (and frustrating) than fun. Don’t get so bogged down with planning and recording that you miss the spontaneous magic of a Disney vacation. To paraphrase Robert Burns, “The best laid plans of mice and men go oft astray.” Use your PassPorter to plan ahead and be aware of your options so you can relax and enjoy your vacation, no matter what it brings.
