What To Do and When: Before your trip to Disney World in September:

March?(180 days prior to arrival date): ?Make dining reservations! ?Make at least one reservation per day. ?You can cancel what you don’t want prior to arrival.

July?(60 days prior to arrival date): ?Make Fast Pass Reservations

August?(60 days prior to arrival date): Add that Disney Magic! ?You can book extras like Bippity Boppity Boutique, Pirates & Pals Dinner Cruise and much more! ?Post on all of the extras coming soon!

September?or earlier: Purchase Memory Maker!? It’s a must have in my opinion if you’re spending several days in the parks! ?Pre-purchase for $169, purchase while at the parks or after $199

Late July, early June: ?Shop and Pack for your trip.??Shop for the items on the packing list you don’t already have. ?Click here to see my Disney World packing list.

June?or earlier: ?Download the My Disney Experience App. ?Use this app to manage your reservations, see your Fastpass+, see wait times and park maps while in the parks.

June?or earlier: ?Reserve a stroller!???Even if you don’t think you need a stroller, chances are you do! ?It’s great to push around your tired kids (not just babies and toddlers) and stash your stuff (including heavy water bottles). ?Post on why you need a stroller coming soon! ?I like to rent at Kingdom Strollers. ?They will deliver and pick up the strollers at your resort, no hassle for you! ?If you reserve a stroller with them, please list my name and email in the comments. ?TIA! ?

One week prior to departure: ?Order Food and Snacks.??I like to bring snacks and sometimes entire sandwich meals into the parks! ?Food at Disney is EXPENSIVE! ?Don’t get me wrong. ?It’s good, and you should try it, but it doesn’t have to be every meal. ?Order snacks, water bottles, sodas, sandwich makings to your hotel. ?I prefer to order all of my non-refrigerated items via Amazon and have them delivered directly to the resort.

One Week Prior or sooner: ?Pack!? There’s no reason to wait until the last minute!

By November?(up to 45 days after your trip): ?Make sure to view and download your My Memory Maker pictures/Photopass.

Hi, I'm Jamie, traveling mama, entrepreneur, and travel advisor. I'm addicted to Disney, traveling and exploring the world with my family, and have a passion for helping families experience the magic of travel. My home is filled with love and chaos, 2 crazy girls, 2 large dogs, and the most spectacular architect and Disney Cast Member I call my husband. We live in Florida and spend our weekends playing at Orlando's many theme parks and visiting the beach. In 2015, after helping numerous families plan their vacations to various Disney Destinations, I started a blog to answer all of the many travel questions I received daily. In 2016, the blog grew into a travel agency, and Love of the Magic Vacations was born. With a team of nearly 20, we spend our days creating family vacations around the world. What started as a blog is now a full service, worldwide vacation destination planning service. I create custom itineraries for each of my clients that not only meets but exceeds expectations. There is no greater gift than making memories while sharing the world and its cultures with your kids.


  1. […] September? Labor day weekend is busy as summer travelers squeeze in the last part of the season. ?The remainder of the month is one of the best times of year to visit in my opinion. ?Low crowds, cooler temperatures, and if you go late enough in the month, you can catch the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party of the year.
