Double Your WDW Workbook

5

If you know you want to plan the best possible Disney World vacation but you're not sure where to start, or if you're dreading the hours of research required, this workbook is the perfect fit for you. Small enough to manage, but comprehensive enough to plan the best vacation possible, it's the perfect companion for someone just starting out on their Disney World journey.

Not sure where to start while planning your Disney World vacation? Worried you won't make the most of your time at the most magical place on earth?

When planning a trip to Disneyworld, the stakes are high. There are endless guides, videos, podcasts, articles, and more around the web. Worse yet, much of the information out there is out of date or flatly wrong.

When planning my extended family's first big trip to Disney World (for sixteen people!) I devoured all of the information I could find in an effort to maximize the return on fun that we'd get from collectively spending over $25,000 on our vacation. I started putting all of that info into emails to my family to help them have the best vacation possible. Pretty soon, I was providing that same guidance, tips, and travel hacks to my friends.

After that trip, I thought "why not put all of this information in one place? Why not share this information with everybody?"

Double Your WDW is all of the planning information that you need to plan the best trip that you can for your family in one easy to digest step-by-step guide.

I love planning, I love Disney World, and I love helping other people have a magical Disney World vacation because the thing that I hate to see is somebody who is overwhelmed and bogged down by planning their trip to the point that you just can't have a fun vacation.

I'll walk you through planning your vacation from start-to-finish step-by-step so that you too can get the most of your budget. (Step 1 is deciding on a budget... any budget.) Disney World is supposed to be fun and magical and I want to help you have that fantastic vacation that you and your children are dreaming about. In other words: I got you, babe.

Super helpful

Coordinating any trip with my family is a huge weight on my shoulders. Disney is especially tricky and awful for navigating with budget. Seriously, Julie’s advice is up to date and saved me so much time and money for my trip.

Makes the thought of a trip less...well...financially terrifying :)

My parents weren't quite well off enough to take us to WDW when my brother and I were really young, but they turned it into a family trip when I was older (they "felt guilty" for not taking us earlier). Though the trip was a lot of fun, unfortunately I was also old enough so that most of what I remember was how expensive it was! As a result, I've sort of avoided the subject until now due to fear of sticker shock. After reading Julie's guide, I at least feel like I'm better prepared for taking my family to WDW. She does a great job of outlining what will be involved, and does a lot of the legwork that I tend to avoid under the principle of "it doesn't exist if I'm too scared to go looking for it" :) Particularly on the cost savings side, those tips can be hard to find in a sea of conflicting info, and make the small price of the guide more than worth it. If you're like me and don't love planning trips well in advance (life gets busy, and I can often barely keep up with this week let alone next year), you'll get a ton of help from this. Thanks Julie!

Huge faimly HUGE result

I was super overwhelmed planning my Disney trip for the whole family. We have 5 kids, one in high school, and one in diapers. Julie is transparent with the challenges of planning, prepares you for the park, and really guides you in the right direction. This saved my computer screen from having 6 million tabs open and saved me some long nights of planning. You can't go wrong with this purchase, especially if you've got a big family like ours.

Perfect Timing for Planning My Ultimate Holiday!

Im just in the planning process with my wife for our ultimate trip to Disney World and came across Julie's guide which has just been such a time saver! With us coming from Australia things are always a little more daunting and this guide has helped in so many ways from understanding the costs of things like tickets and accommodation, to when are the best times to go, Julie has covered all in the details that I was asking myself. This guide has saved me countless hours of web surfing and investigations... it really is a comprehensive guide and so much more than I thought it would be. Highly recommend this to anyone who is planning their Disney World adventure!

count on julie to tell it like it is

i was excited when we decided to plan a trip disney world but then i got worried about "screwing it up." what if we miss the best rides? what if we can't get in the good restaurants? how do we get around? basically, i was experiencing the most severe case of FOMO ever. friends started giving me random tips and crash course advice over dinner, but it seemed overwhelming. then i found julie through a mutual friend. she gave me an advanced copy of her book (double your wdw.) it was exactly what i needed: a straightforward guide for a regular person just trying to make the most of a pricey trip to disney world. after following julie's advice, i was convinced that our trip would be a success. i was more than right... our trip was such a hit with our kids that i have no doubt we'll be going back, and i'll absolutely be turning to julie & double your wdw as our trusted advisor for disney world vacay planning. i know i can always count on julie to tell it like it is!!
