Vote of the week: How long do you take to plan a theme park vacation?

By Robert Niles: Are you thinking about a Disney World trip for Christmas? Or maybe a visit to Universal Orlando next summer? Or are you the type who plans way ahead, and are putting together a budget for a theme park vacation in 2013 or beyond?

That’s our vote of the week this week on Theme Park Insider: How far in advance do you start planning your theme park vacation?

We’re not talking about random day trips to parks near you, but about overnight vacations instead. Maybe they’re to a nearby park. Maybe they’re to a park across the country or around the world. We’ve got a nice page here on the site with some general theme park vacation planning tips, but I know that different people do that planning in very different timeframes. Some readers make vacation planning a year-long process. Others believe in spontaneity (or last-minute discounts), and throw the whole thing together in a day or two.

Which type of theme park vacation planner are you?

Please share your favorite vacation planning tips, in the comments. And, as always, thank you for reading Theme Park Insider!
