BEFORE YOUR TRIP
Safeguard your honeymoon with some upfront planning to help your vacation go as smoothly as possible.
- Lock down your reservations well ahead of time—you can book your Disney honeymoon more than a year in advance.
- Don't short-change your vacation. Consider 8 to 10 nights—or longer—so you can completely unwind. It's your special time!
- Consider the savings of purchasing a photo package in advance of your trip. Memory Maker includes digital downloads, discounted prints, select Attraction and Character dining photos, videos and more.
- Better safe than sorry—have someone check up on your home while you two are gone.
- Arrange care for your pets well ahead of time, complete with instructions, to minimize your stress. Don't leave it to the last-minute!
- Check your airline's luggage weight restrictions and per bag limits before you pack. Then weigh your packed bags—and repack if you need to.
- Make sure your carry-on baggage fits within the TSA's size guidelines.
- When changing time zones, resist napping once you land—it'll throw off your internal clock. Jump right into your day, staying up until bedtime in your new time zone.
- Purchase travel insurance for your trip. It'll ensure peace of mind or assistance, should you need it. Ask your travel agent for details.
- Download your specific Disney Park app—if available—before you leave on your trip to get the lowdown on show times, attraction wait times, operating hours and much more!
