Disney Trip Planning


If you’re looking to plan a Disney trip, you’ve come to the right place. Here we have vacation planning guides for Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris. Soon, we’ll have guides for Tokyo Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland, too!

These guides will help you plan every step of your visit, from pricing out hotels and airfare to using transportation efficiently and saving money on souvenirs. While they are a bit of reading, spending a couple hours of time with these free guides will save you hours of headaches on vacation and will make your trip stress-free…or as close to stress-free as possible. Each of the guides has links to additional posts that offer more detailed information about particular subjects. Click those links if you need to know more about anything!

Hope these help! If you have any questions, leave them in the comments here (or on those particular guides). We receive email notifications when a comment is left, and we try our best to respond to all questions.

In addition to our Disney trip planning resources, we have some other guides that we’ve written in response to many of our trip reports. In those, we receive comments along the lines of: “you guys look like you have fun touring the parks.” A lot of these comments and questions are more specific, with two especially popular ones being, “where did Sarah get [insert article of clothing or footwear here], it looks so beautiful!” and “what time of [insert name of camera, lens, or other photography equipment here] use in the parks?”

While we wholly deny being fun or cool people, we do admit that Sarah wears clothes to Disney, and Tom carries camera equipment. We also reluctantly concede that we do have a lot of fun when we tour the parks, and that’s because we think we enable ourselves to do that by planning and doing things right. Trips are a lot more fun when you plan properly: if you wear comfortable shoes, bring delicious and energizing snacks, read the right books to prepare for your trips, or use the right apps. To that end, we’ve created a series of Trip Planning Guides wherein we will give the DTB “Brick of Approval” (this may sound bad, but Bricker is our last name, so it’s really a good thing, we swear!) to various things we use to help us maximize our fun-quotient while visiting the parks!

    This may sound like a strange question but how do you go about planning your trips to Disney in China/Japan?
    I’ve booked my other trips online but I’m really struggling to find information on the parks outside of Europe and America.
