    Hi when will we be able to book rooms directly on the Disney world website for travel in January 2018? At the moment I can only book a room if the booking contains at least one day in 2017, but we don't plan on arriving until a week or so later.

    Hi, Michelle! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited that you have started to plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I am sure you have heard, but Pandora- The World of Avatar will be up and running Expeditions by January 2018 so you have a lot to look forward to!

    If you are trying to book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, these generally come out for the following year during the summer months. If this historical trend continues, you should be able to book your Walt Disney World Resort vacation online this summer for January 2018. However, if you plan to book a room-only reservation, you can book these up to 499 days in advance by calling Walt Disney World Resort Reservations directly as they are not available to book that far in advance online. Keep in mind that pricing may change if you decided to book before actual prices are released. 

    Remember that you can also book your Advanced Dining Reservations up to 180 days in advance. One of my favorites, which I find is underrated, is Biergarten Restaurant! It has such a fun atmosphere and a delicious German buffet!

    I hope this helps you with your planning and come back again real soon!
