Even if you have visited Walt Disney World Resort many times, with all of the new attractions, shows and things to do, it sometimes feels like it is the first time. First time or not, it can be very overwhelming!

Latina Magazine and Growing Up Bilingual blogger, Paula Bendfeldt-Diaz, knows a thing or two about planning that perfecta vacación for all. Here are her best consejos to save time and money:

Plan ahead! – Visit the MyDisneyExperience.com web site and download the app on your mobile so you can use it while on vacation! On the site, you can find the best itinerary tools, reserve FastPass+ in advance and make wish lists.

Stay at a Disney resort – Not only is staying at a Walt Disney World hotel convenient, as it saves you time and makes it easier to go to all the theme parks and Disney Springs. But it’s also a fantastic experience in itself. All of the hotels, with their immersive themes, bring the magic of Disney into your room every day.

Also by staying at a Disney resort hotel, there is no need to worry about transportation; you can take Disney’s Magical Express from the airport to your hotel, and then take the resort transportation to the parks and other locations.

And the best benefit of all is the Extra Magic Hours! Each day, at select resort hotels, guests are offered exclusive time in a theme park one hour prior to scheduled park opening or up to three hours after park closing. The park varies from day to day so be sure to check out the times before your plan your day!

MagicBands! – They connect you to your park admission tickets, give you direct access to Disney FastPass+ service experiences, Disney PhotoPass photos and videos and they also serve as your room key when staying at a Walt Disney World hotel.
