Vacation: it's supposed to be relaxing.

But if you’ve tried to plan – and, ya know, actually go on – a vacation to Walt Disney World in recent history, you know that “relaxing” does not even come close to describing it.

It’s more like “spending hours on hold, Googling, clicking through hundreds of websites, combing through dozens of forums, lying awake at night while making a mental list of everything you still need to plan, and trying to get practical answers to your most essential questions."

→ Fitting all of these rides, shows, restaurants, and attractions into one short vacation: HOW!? What if we pay all of this money and don’t get to do all the things we want to do?

→ What rides should I prioritize?

→ Standing in long lines in the Florida heat and humidity: can it be avoided?

→ Am I gonna have to buy Genie+? 💸

→ My kid’s favorite ride is a headliner with 90-minute wait times all day every day. Help?

→ We can’t get a reservation at our family’s favorite restaurant. Are we out of luck?

→ Is going home exhausted, broke, and questioning all of my life choices just part of the experience? 😅

Questions like...


“Whoa, whoa whoa, when did theme park vacations become so complicated!?” 

Then don’t worry – you’re not alone!

Walt Disney World has changed a lot since you were a kid.

Heck, it’s probably changed a lot since your last visit!
Until you’re in the thick of it, there’s just no way to know how much you’ll need to learn, plan for, keep track of, and – unfortunately – stress over.

If you’re thinking, 

Feel confident and prepared during the planning process

Arrive at the parks relaxed and ready to go because you’ve got a strategy and you know what to expect

Get ALL of the dining reservations you want

Spend less time waiting in line (yup, really)

Experience everything you want to do while on vacation – rides, restaurants, shows, and more – as many times as your little heart (or your offspring’s heart) desires

Make memories you and your family will treasure for a lifetime
(Cheesy? Maybe. True? Definitely.)

But! How incredible would it feel if you could have access to everything you need to…..

Grab this before it's gone >>

That’s right – you can absolutely set yourself up to have tons of fun, get the most bang for your buck, and spend your vacation feeling like:

“Wow, this is incredible; I can't believe we’re making all of these memories together!”

Instead of ... “Wow, remind me why I thought bringing these wild kids into a 100-degree zone of talking mice and chaos would be a good idea, again?”

Going on a Disney vacation doesn’t have to include crying over spreadsheets at 2:00 AM, rushing your kids from ride to ride like a drill sergeant, waking up before dawn every day, or paying a fortune to download (and then try to keep track of) a dozen checklists, planners, and apps from five different websites.

So, what if you could have unlimited access to all of the expert advice, proven strategies, tools, guides, downloads, tutorials, and checklists you need to make it happen – all in one place, and all for one teeny tiny price?

If you’re like, “Uh, yeah, that sounds AMAZING, please tell me more immediately!” Then we’ve got good news for ya – you’re in exactly the right place!

Here’s the truth:

The only membership that gets you VIP access to every single expert-developed strategy and product we've ever created - to help you beat the crowds, save time & money, and actually have fun (and avoid meltdowns) at Walt Disney World.

...PLUS the new Listletter PRO, resort-hopping guides, snack checklists, and more!

We haven’t missed out on a much-anticipated ride or restaurant since finding Wish Upon a Planner three years ago. 

We don't miss anything.

I didn’t realize reliable Disney tips and strategies existed until I found you. Once we got to Disney World, I was really surprised just how much using your tips – especially the advice on how to stack – helped us make the most out of our trip.

Your tips work.

When I’ve gone to Disney with Annual Passholders, they’ve all been really impressed with what we were able to accomplish while following your guides. I can’t imagine doing to Disney without them! 

Even Passholders are impressed!

community members how to plan more efficient, stress-free Disney visits.

Our trip has been from 6/19-6/26. I’m at WDW doing this survey, actually. Our trip has been epic and super efficient and we have loved it! We are a family of 4: Mom, Dad, 2 girls (ages 8 and 4). Park hopper, LL, the Genie+ Tips and tricks, 26/8, EE, rope drop, staying late, your foodie suggestions for snacks and restaurants, it ALL worked for us, so thank you, Ali. You’re my new best friend.

Our trip has been epic!

– shelley, VT

I want to thank you for all the Genie+ tips. We took advantage of early entry and with the tips, we rarely waited in line. We rode Expedition Everest three times in a row with no line. We never followed the crowd but we stuck to your tips and it worked. Thank you for all your work!! 😊

We never waited in line!

– Mellisa M.T., Texas

Since being a customer, I’ve taken the time to really strategize ahead of our WDW trips in order to maximize our vacations and get the most for our money. I felt like I was prepared for any scenario, which is awesome b/c you don't always know if the fam is going to be up at dawn ready to rope drop or needs a day to sleep in. Either way, I felt prepared to still get a lot out of our day!

We maximize our vacations!

– Christina B., Ohio

We were able to get many sold out rides with your strategies. I think my family would hate our trips if I didn’t have them planned out and strategized with what I’ve learned through you. It would take our favorite family time of the year to possibly the worst if they went on a trip only to stand in lines. They never stand in lines because of my planning. The only lines we stand in are bus lines.

We went on sold-out rides!

Q

FAQs

Does my membership renew automatically? What if I don't want a monthly subscription?

If you select the $17 month-to-month option, then yes, your membership does renew automatically. You’re free to cancel at any time, which you can do yourself online. And there is no minimum required!

If you select the 3-month package for $47, your membership won't automatically renew. If you don't want to have a subscription - we totally get it - and this is why we created this option!

If you decide you want to stick around for another 3 months or you want to continue with a month-to-month subscription, we’d love to have you and that option will be there! 

Yep, gimme that expert status! >>

What if you add something new?

As long as you’re a current member, you get access to it!

How long will I have access?

You’ll have access to the materials as long as your membership is current.

Most of the materials are downloads, which means you will also be able to keep them and use them even if you decide to cancel your membership.

What happens once I purchase?

Once you complete your purchase, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to create your account and get started immediately! 

Can’t I just buy these items individually?

Yup – the individual products you’ll have access to as part of the All Access Pass are available in our shop year-round, so you can definitely just purchase individual items if you want. 

Like you might have seen above, though, buying each item individually would run you more than $xxx. With the All Access Pass, you get huge savings, access to all updates, and access to any new products we add… all for just $17 per month.

If you want the huge bundle of everything PLUS the massive savings, though, the All Access Pass is the only way to get it.

Pssst: Even if you’ve purchased 1 - 2 individual products in the past, the All Access Pass unlocks EVERYTHING else and has two bonuses that cannot be purchased.

How do all of these resources work when systems/hours/policies/rides/etc at Disney World change so dang often?

When Disney makes any changes that could affect foundational strategies (touring the parks, making dining reservations, the Genie system, paid features, and so forth) – and if you know Disney, you know that happens often – we update our materials.

Your membership includes all updates and unlimited access as long as you’re a member. Plus, you’ll also get our free weekly Listletter® (mini-briefing of news and changes at the parks) AND our monthly Listletter PRO (more in-depth intel, critical updates, the latest deals, fresh tips, which tactics are working well (and which aren’t), and other essential Disney must-knows).

Tl;dr: you’re covered, no matter what, whether you've purchased an All Access Pass or individual products from us.

When’s the best time to purchase?

Membership for the All Access Pass ONLY opens once per quarter. The doors will close until Nov. 30th at 10pm EST.

We recommend anyone heading to Disney to start really learning strategy 3-6 months before your trip, so you can put it to use once you have to start making reservations. Many of our readers find the planning process exciting, so they prefer to purchase 6+ months in advance. If that’s you, go for it!

I’m only going to WDW or Universal for one day. Is it still worth joining?

That’s totally up to you! While you’ll probably get the most out of your All Access Pass if you’re spending multiple days at WDW or Universal, you’ll still be able to find (and use!) plenty of tips, tricks, and hacks to help you save time and make the squeeze the most magic of out every moment (which, tbh, might be even more precious and important if you only have a single day to enjoy the park(s)!).

And, like, not to toot our own horn, but hear us out: membership starts at $17 and park tickets start at $100+. With the All Access Pass, you’re absolutely going to learn enough to save that $17 and fit in a whole lot of fun stuff you might not have had time for (or known about) otherwise.

I’m not sure I’m ready to join yet. When will All Access Pass open again?

Membership opens four times a year, for one week at a time.

This time, the doors close at 10pm EST on November 30th. The next time we open them will be late January 2023.

Individual products and bundles are always available in our shop year-round, so you’ll never be left hanging if you have a trip coming up! 

If you want ALL of the info and the ginormous savings, though? The All Access Pass is the way to go.

"When we first started planning our trip, I was overwhelmed by everything. I hadn’t been to Disney World since I was a lot younger, so I didn’t have any knowledge of what it’s like to plan a Disney trip today.

Thanks to Wish Upon a Planner, I had strategies to use for planning and in the parks. I felt prepared and informed. They made the process a LOT less overwhelming, and our trip went pretty smoothly!

Their information is the best. It’s so thorough! They manage to cover so much, but they do it in a succinct and direct way so it’s not overwhelming.

Even with a short trip, we still did almost everything we wanted!

Take my word for it: Disney is busy, and getting through your day can be tricky if you don’t have the right tips! It’s worth it to learn how to make the most of your time." 

Your information is the best.
