    When will we be able to plan a trip for 2021?

    Hi, Chelsea!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    I am so excited to hEAR that you are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  The Most Magical Place on Earth will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021, and there will be so many new things to see and do.  I can't think of a better time to visit!

    Chelsea, I'm not sure if you've been following the news regarding the upcoming reopening of Walt Disney World Resort.  At this time, new reservations at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels and new theme park ticket sales are temporarily paused so that Cast Members can focus on Guests with existing reservations.  Once everything is straightened out with those Guests, new reservations will resume.  I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the resort operations updates on the Walt Disney World website for the latest news on when new reservations can be made.

    Under normal circumstances, vacation packages for the upcoming year are typically released during the summer months.  For example, 2020 vacation packages became available for booking in June of 2019.  However, even if 2021 vacation packages are not available as soon as the new reservations resume, you can still begin to plan your trip.  You can book a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room-only reservation by phone 499 days in advance.  Then once vacation packages for 2021 become available, you are welcome to upgrade that room-only reservation to a package.

    As you dream about a great, big, beautiful tomorrow, please don't hesitate to ask if you have additional vacation planning questions.  We would love to help!  See ya real soon!
