introducing...

Bundle 1 // Food + Dining

Obsessed with discovering new snacks, picking out the most convenient spots for your family, and getting the know on what the best meals are at each park? This bundle is gonna be your fav.

The Vault Bundles you'll receive instantly:

What's included in this bundle:

The WUAP Comprehensive Dining Guide:
Your 40+ page guide that includes a quick, easy-to-read synopsis and rating of each quick-service and table-service restaurant at all four parks. This one’s for those who think one of the best parts about vacations are the eats!

“Best of” Pocket Guides:
Quick, digital pocket guides that summarize the best snacks, quick-services, and sit-downs in each park (and nearby) so you can quickly pull them up on vacation and figure out the best meal for you and your group—with tips for convenience, location, and style preferences!

Snack Checklists:
Just what they sound like—the full rundown of the best snacks in every park. Because a Bavarian Pretzel with Beer Cheese Fondue usually beats a Mickey Pretzel with plastic cheese (usually...not always!)

The Ultimate Dining Hack: 
Learn how to get any dining reservation—even if you missed it, and even without relying on text alerts—with the Ultimate Dining Hack that our readers say is the best thing we’ve ever taught them outside of park strategies!

Other Pro Dining Tips:
See when (and when not to!) use Mobile Ordering like a pro, how to use the triage technique to score all the dining reservations you want, and more reservation tips!

customer love for the dining bundle:

I've helped thousands of people score those hard-to-get reservations that were causing stress, save money by avoiding overpriced and overrated restaurants, and find the best hidden snacks and dining spots Disney has to offer:

Bundle 2 // Resorts & More

You've probably heard us rave about The BoardWalk, doing an adult "Monorail Crawl" for tiki drinks and classy cocktails, or whisking off on the Skyliner to Riviera to grab a coffee and pastry. That's because the Disney resorts on-site are, dare we say, magical. This bundle will show you how to maximize your resort experience—whether you're on property or off.

Room Request Cheatsheet File + Template:
Picture it: You’re spending the money for a Disney resort so that you and your family can be immersed in the magic all day, every day. You want impeccable theming! You want convenience! You want delight! Annnnnd then you arrive and find yourself in a room that’s not only overlooking the dumpster, but it’s a 2-mile walk to the nearest bus stop… and you have 2 toddlers in tow. Oh noooo. That just won’t do. You’re gonna need the perfect room to go with your perfect vacation, amirite?

We’ll show you the best room requests to make for every resort on property—plus when, how, and where to send it—and, you’ll even get access to the exact template our customers use to get our room requests fulfilled almost every time. 

Anyone can visit the Disney Resorts—not just those staying at them. And thanks to the Resort Hopping Guide, your vacation doesn’t have to just be sweating it out in the parks: you can whisk off in the Skyliner to snag the best chocolate croissant on property, delight in your kids' squeals when they spot a zebra just a few feet away, or indulge yourself in from scratch truffle gnocchi paired with some freshly poured prosecco.

You’ll find checklists and options with the top resorts and just some of the activities anyone can partake in while visiting them. We’ll also give you the 411 on how to effectively resort hop if you’re a newbie. Monorail + Skyliner bar and snack crawl suggestions included!

Bundle 3 // Insider Park Tips

We're all about strategy, but a lot of the real magic is outside of just running from ride to ride.

In this bundle, get over 20+ years of pro secrets in your hands.

What's included in this bundle:

EPCOT World Showcase Chart:
Learn the top experiences and hidden gem spots around EPCOT's World Showcase so you don't miss any of the action—including the best things to do with the little ones so you can drink your La Cava margarita in peace! 😉

Transportation Strategies:
With the Skyliner, Monorail, buses, ferry boats, and walking paths, Disney makes it a bit of a puzzle for most guests to get around. And knowing where you're going and the best way to get there can save you hours—learn how to travel around the World so you’re zipping around smoothly!

Break Spots:
Whether you're battling the summer heat or the day turns rainy, we'll show you exactly where to go and what to do so you can get the rest you need and your family can keep enjoying the day—minus the excessive meltdowns.

Expert nighttime show and firework spots: whether you're a "we're getting in front of the Castle an hour in advance for the fireworks" or the "show me the partial view spot I can just walk up to 5 minutes before a show" type of person, learn the best spot for you (with suggested arrival times) so you don’t waste precious park time standing around—and still get a great spot!

Hidden Gem Spots, Photo Ops, and More:
There's the obvious stuff you'll find on blogs and park maps, and then there are spots in each park that most visitors don't ever know exist. We'll show you the not-to-miss spots and places to take a perfect photo that aren't full of tourists.

How it works

"Your content is absolutely top notch and the most practical and useful info I've used on Disney trip planning and touring yet."

- Dave H.

I just wanted to write a quick note of thanks for all of the amazing resources you have as part of your site and platform. Your guides and all of the content in the VIP Members Portal is absolutely top notch and the most practical and useful info I've used on Disney trip planning and touring yet. My family and I just got back from a week in the parks and couldn't have done it all without your help!"

"All the info I needed in one place -- it saved me hours/days of internet digging and a lot of stress. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

- Emily s.

Hi - I just wanted to send you a BIG THANK YOU! I'm a planner... and the thought of digging through the internet to find the info I needed was so overwhelming and it was causing major anxiety and paralysis... your site popped up in my feed and I'm so glad I paid the too low of a price.

"My membership was invaluable on our last trip to Disney! I felt like I knew secrets that not everyone else knew!"

- jordan s.

My VIP Membership and the Playbook were invaluable on our last trip to Disney! I felt well-prepared, up-to-date on the latest information, and like I knew some secrets that not everyone else knew! Thank you for what you do and for offering your courses and memberships at such a reasonable price point. I feel like Wish Upon a Planner is a strategic investment if you're going to spend the money to go to Disney.

Studies show that planning and anticipating vacations actually bring just as much pleasure, if not more than the actual travel itself…ummm, yeah, we believe it (and, hello, excuse to buy new notebook and pens!).

Might as well make the Disney planning part fun and stress-free and make sure that precious vacation time goes the same way.

Anticipating and planning = more happiness

FAQs

The Complete Parks Strategy Playbook and Genie+ Mastery Mini-Course are digital guidebooks/courses with Modules that teach you how to tour the parks like a pro – how to beat the lines, when to go where, and how to maximize your use of Genie+.

VIP Vault+ is for people that want even more tips & tricks (especially beyond park strategy, like food & dining and resort info), want to be on the inside of the latest changes, and would like access to our private group, author, other channels. 

How is the VIP Vault+ different than the other Disney World products? (The Complete Parks Strategy Playbook to Walt Disney World and the Genie+ Mastery Mini-Course)


I'm newer around here. What do you recommend I purchase first?

The most critical part of trip planning is maximizing your time and making sure you're not waiting longer than 15 minutes in a line. That way you're doing as much as you want, with as little stress as possible. The Complete Parks Strategy Playbook is what I recommend everyone have to start with. You can bundle both the Genie+ Mastery Mini-Course and the VIP Vault+ for a big discount during any of the checkouts for all of these products!

Can I change or cancel the monthly membership easily?

It is easy to cancel your monthly membership at any time with a few simple clicks – there is no minimum, and you are welcome to back any time. For Annual, the paid-in-full discount is offered for the purpose of the full commitment. If you are not sure if you want a full year, we strongly advise the monthly.

What if I decide I don't like it? Is there a trial? Do you offer refunds?

There are no refunds or trial periods with the membership, if you decide you do not want to be a member anymore, you simply cancel your membership and you will not be charged again.

For the VIP Vault (content only), we do offer a happiness, moneyback guarantee like we do on all of our other products.


What if I pay in full for an Annual and then decide I don’t want it?

The paid-in-full discount is offered for the purpose of the full commitment. If you are not sure if you want a full year, we strongly advise the monthly. If you want to cancel a membership paid in full, you would be refunded any leftover portion of the full monthly price times the used duration of your membership. 



I'm interested in finally committing to this planning thing for my vacation, and I think I want the Playbook, Genie+, and the VIP Vault+. Can I just get all of them at once?

Yes and of course we recommend this! You can bundle both the Genie+ Mastery Mini-Course and the VIP Vault+ for a big discount during any of the checkouts for these products!

I'm a travel agent and I love your stuff. Can I join VIP Vault+?

Yes, we love TAs. But please remember: you membership includes one license ONLY for your use and all of our material is federally copyrighted—you may not share our hard work (logins, downloads, or our materials) with your clients (we will take legal action). Because that's theft, and that ain't cool. Kapeesh?


No worries—the VIP Vault+ is here to stay and you can come in and join whenever you feel the timing is right for YOU!

I'm interested but not at this exact moment. Will this be available in the future?

What if you add something new?

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

How long will I have access?

You’ll have access to the materials for one year from your purchase date.

Most of the materials are downloads, which means you will also be able to keep them and use them even when your access expires.

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?

Most of 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. 

With the All Access Pass, you get huge savings, access to all updates, and access to any new products we add… all for just $72 this round.

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 separately. You are eligible for a discount coupon on this if you've already made a recent purchase - check your customer portal or email us!

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?

Your access is good for one year, so just make sure you're within that period!

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 6-12 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?

If you've already purchased the Parks Strategy Playbook, Genie+ Mastery Mini-Course, or Universal Strategy Guide (or multiple), and want to upgrade to the All Access Pass to receive everything, you're eligible for a big discount! 

You will find your discount code within your members area—if you have any trouble though, just shoot us an email at support@wishuponaplanner.com.

cheers to easier planning

"It was all worth every penny"

I know that a Disney vacation, even minus all its complexities and stress, can create a lifetime of priceless memories. And that magic can be started during the planning process.

 I made this VIP Vault+ not because you HAVE to have it ...

... but because I know that when you’re home putting the picture frames of your kid's first coaster smiles or the massive-character-hug-moments on the shelf, you'll think:

"Yep—all the planning paid off" ☺️
