    What is the absolute farthest out that I can book my package, if I want to make payments?

    Hello Alli and from all of us here at planDisney, welcome! We're happy you're here!

    Alli, as a guest who is always in some stage of planning vacations years in advance, I'm thrilled to chat with you today and hope I can help make your Walt Disney World Resort vacation feel a bit closer!

    Alli, currently, vacation packages are available through the end of 2023, however, typically new dates are added in the spring for the following calendar year. My best recommendation is to keep a close watch on the Disney Parks Blog as announcements (like the availability of new vacation packages) tend to show up there first. 

    While this may not be as far in advance as you'd like, I do have another recommendation. Did you know that you can pay for your entire Walt Disney World vacation with Disney Gift Cards? While we are saving for a trip to see Mickey Mouse, my husband and I like to pick up gift cards throughout the year while running errands and grocery shopping. We then register our Disney Gift Cards and combine and consolidate them (up to $1,000 per card). This is my family's version of a Walt Disney World savings account! Alli, if you want to slowly save up and start paying for a trip in 2024, 2025 or beyond, this might be a method you consider. Once vacation packages for your desired dates are released, you can pay your deposit or any amount you'd like using your Disney Gift Cards.

    In the meantime, I encourage you to channel your inner Snow White and keep wishing... by learning all about the Disney Resort hotels and considering which might be the perfect choice for your upcoming trip. With choices for every taste and budget, I know you'll find something that would make even Grumpy smile. 

    If you have any additional questions or need help in your planning journey, please come on back to planDisney where we're happy to lend a hand and "whistle while we work."
