This episode we discuss my family’s May vacation and the trip planning we have done.  I share our planning strategies with our budget and the starting of making the daily itinerary.

A question we get asked a lot is when should I book our vacation.  The answer I give is: as soon as you fairly certain our are going to go.

You should book at 180 days out so you can take advantage of the booking windows for onsite resort guests with Advanced Dining Reservations.

60 days you can book your FastPass+ reservations for your ride reservations.

We are planning our vacation.

Here is our trip planning Excel sheet as we have it right now.


Our steps were:
Book Room
Book Airfare
Book rental car
Decided on if we wanted dining plan
Deciding on day by day activities to prepare for FP+
Deciding on if we are going to day trip to Universal.

Use Touring Plans subscription service to help us with decisions.

Learning about Star Wars Weekends so we can plan that day since we haven’t attended this before.
