Meet Dad: How We Can Help Plan Your Vacation

You shout…”I’M GOING TO WALT DISNEY WORLD!!!!” YES! It’s time to celebrate! You are going to a better place. This is going to be Fun! Or is it???

Planning a Disney World Trip Can Be Stressful

Have you started planning your trip? How’s that going? Are you feeling a little stressed? Overwhelmed? Burned out? Confused? Lost? Scared? And maybe even a little…FREAKED OUT!!!!

Maybe you’re struggling with questions like;

  • When should I go?
  • Where should I stay?
  • What should I pack?
  • When do I make hotel/airplane/FastPass (whatever that is) /dining/and on and on… reservations?
  • What are ADR’s, DDP’s, DVC’s, MDE’s, EMH’s, AP’s, CRT’s…

I’m so confused.

Or maybe you are just overwhelmed with the unbelievable amount of information on the internet about WDW. But who do you believe?. One site says this. A different site says that. Everyone says I have to stay at the GrandFloridianPolynesianContemporaryWildernessLodgeFortWildernessCampground (do I really have to type all 28 hotel names in here?) that I have to eat at Casey’s Corner, get a Dole Whip, ride (insert ride name here), and the character meals…

Can someone please help me?

Meet Dad

Hi, my name is Carl Trent, but around here I’m kinda known as Dad. I’m here to help.

I love Disney World. It’s my favorite place anywhere. My whole life I’ve had an obsession with Walt Disney and especially the Theme Parks. When I was small, my Grandma would take me to Disneyland. I fell in love with it. It didn’t even matter that my sister made me sick on the Teacups, I loved Disneyland. That Disney love continues to this day.

When it comes to a Disney World vacation, I’ve been there, done that and made all the mistakes. My goal in life is to help people like you with planning YOUR Disney World vacation.

In the immortal words of Billy Swan, “if you’ve got a problem, don’t care what it is, if you need a hand, I can assure you of this, I can help.” I can help you with plan YOUR vacation. I can help you make YOUR memories. And I can help show you how to do it YOUR way.

YOUR Vacation, YOUR Memories, YOUR Way

Your vacation is all about YOUR memories. Creating memories is what going to Walt Disney World is all about. From the time you shout I’m going to Walt Disney World, until the day you stop crying after you get home from your trip, it’s YOUR vacation. You are going to create some wonderful memories.

So you’re probably saying “That all sounds nice and flowery Dad, but how on earth am I supposed to sort through all the noise and plan my vacation? How do I do this my way?

I think you just asked the perfect question.

Simple Fun Magic

I believe planning a WDW Vacation is Simple, it’s Fun and it’s definitely Magic. Let me explain. Going to Walt Disney World has become a pretty big undertaking. The average length of a WDW vacation is now more than 6 days. With 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, more than 25 hotels, over 100 restaurants, shopping areas, golf courses, bus schedules, rides, shows, tickets…

Yes, it sounds pretty overwhelming and a lot of websites try to make going to WDW like rocket science. It’s not. Your Vacation can be Simple. YOU are going to have Fun and your Memories will be Magic!

Trust me! With Dad’s help you will have a Simple, Fun, Magic Walt Disney World Vacation.

Dads Guide to WDW

I started back in 2008 to help people get ready for a Walt Disney World vacation. That’s still my mission today. In Dad’s Guide, I cover everything from where to eat to what the crowds will be like every day of the year. I have pages for every park, every hotel, almost every ride, most of the restaurants, and lots more. If you need to know it I’ve probably talked about it.
