Contemplating a trip to a Disney park? You may be stressing out about planning.
One resource for advice is the Disney Parks Moms Panel . The 40 panelists provide customized, free answers to emailed questions.
A member of the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lindsey P. of Georgia, recently answered some questions in an interview with AP's weekly travel podcast "Get Outta Here!"
She said the sweet spot for booking Disney park trips for most guests is seven or eight months ahead. You can make your hotel reservations at that point, then at six months out, make dining reservations, and at 60 days out, make your FastPass reservations guaranteeing three rides per day.
She also recommended Undercovertourist.com's crowd calendar for seeing how crowded parks will be on any given day.
