Made Your Walt Disney World Plans Yet? Website Says You Should Do So By Sunday, June 6

Share Article

For the best first family visit to Walt Disney World, complete planning by June 6. This timing allows a visit in early December--the best time to visit Walt Disney World--while hitting the 180 day reservation window for some of Disney's best-loved family meals.

nowhere else can you find exact advice in one page for a great Disney trip, or find your family's next best options in case that exact advice can't be followed.

Did you know that December 4, 2010 is the best Walt Disney World arrival date this year? That one of the best loved parts of Disney visits is family dining? That these fill up very quickly? And that you can reserve family dining spots at Disney World up to 180 days in advance?

Put all that together, and Sunday June 6 is a key date. If your Walt Disney World plans are firm by then, then you will have hit the 180 day window for making Walt Disney World dining reservations.

At least that's what the website, called "the most valuable Disney World site on the web," says.

The website gives exact instructions for first time family visitors, and its principal author, Cleveland-based David Hobart, notes that early December is the best time at Disney World for first time visitors--lower crowds, the lowest prices of the year, and spectacular holiday events and decorations.

Hobart suggests that the best arrival date in 2010 is December 4. He also notes that since guests can begin reserving dining at Walt Disney World 180 days in advance, having plans firm by June 6th--181 days before December 4--allows travelers to make their dining reservations on June 7th, the earliest possible day.

The site,, is the only website designed solely for first time visitors to Walt Disney World. For them, it has precise advice for making a first family visit to such a complicated place as good as it can be. In addition to when to go, and how long in advance plans need to be made, topics include how long to stay, how old and tall children should be, where to stay, what to budget, how to eat, where to eat, itineraries for every day of a stay, and a to-do list.

Families that can follow its advice to the letter will be done with their planning after reading just 400 words on the home page. Moreover, for families that can't follow its exact advice, the site includes their next best options. For example, if a family simply can't arrive December 4th, the site ranks every week of 2010 (and 2011!) in order, based on whether or not rides are open, weather, typical crowd levels, and prices. Families can simply go down the list of ranked weeks until they find the one that works for them.

One travel agent, Allison, called it "amazing." Another travel agent, Kerri, noted that "first time guests are very often overwhelmed with planning their vacations to Disney," and that "is a great source of straight-to-the-point information."

David Hobart, the author, says "nowhere else can you find exact advice in one page for a great Disney trip, or find your family's next best options in case that exact advice can't be followed."

The site has been very well received. Traffic is doubling every few months, and one frequent visitor to the site, Lee, called it "the most valuable Disney World site on the web." Another, Jeff, a school teacher in Los Angeles who is using the site to teach writing to his students, called it "a staggering achievement."

About is a travel site that focuses on first time visitors to Walt Disney World, gives them exact instructions for the best possible first trip, and gives next best choices if these instructions can't be followed.

It uses the power of the web, and its ability (through links) to focus on just what is of interest, to free people from having to invest hours in poring through guidebooks or websites that were written for everyone, to dig out what's just right for a first--and perhaps only--visit.
