    How to begin planning a price

    Hey there, Stephen! I'm so glad you brought your question here to us at planDisney! 

    As much as I love to visit Walt Disney World Resort, I love planning the trip almost as much! There's so much excitement that bubbles up as I dream about which Disney Resorts Collection hotel to stay at, which attractions I can't wait to ride, and who I'm going to take with me. As Mary Poppins says, "In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun!" So true! In order to step foot into The Most Magical Place on Earth, we need to do a little planning.

    Stephen, I see you're hoping to travel in July of next year. What a wonderful time to visit! Currently, room-only vacations can be booked up to 499 days in advance by calling the amazing Cast Members at (407) 939-1936. This room-only reservation can be upgraded to a vacation package (which includes tickets) at a later date. Right now, it looks like vacation packages can be booked through December 2022. I know you're looking to estimate prices, so here's what I would suggest:

    First, you may want to compare vacation offers set for July of this year. While prices can often change, this will help you to see a ballpark estimate of what to plan for. You can choose some sample dates, the ages of your travel party, and compare different Disney Resorts Collection hotels. Personally, my favorite Value Resorts are Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort, my favorite Moderate Resorts are Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, and my favorite Deluxe Resorts are Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Beach Club Resort. My husband and I even love camping at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort! I would recommend playing around with different combinations of dates and resorts to see which fits your family the best.

    Of course, you could also talk through some options with a Cast Member. They're a little like real-life fairy godparents who are able to assist you with some of the finer details of travel planning. If you'd like to give them a call, try to call them first thing in the morning when the phone lines open (usually at 7:00 AM) since their type of magic can sometimes be in high demand. 

    Stephen, I hope I was able to give you a starting point with pricing your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. If you have any other questions, please visit us again! After all - you've got a friend in me!

    Happy planning!
