    When is the best time to book a DW package for February 2018

    Hi Mary,

    So glad to know you are thinking about a Walt Disney World vacation for next February. Let me help you out with your concerns, and make sure you are ready to discover how The Magic is Endless.

    Did you know you could book a stay at a Disney Resort hotel up to 500 days in advance? You cannot do it online, and instead need to speak to a Vacation Planning Specialist at (407) 939-1936, or your Travel Agent. This is best for those Guests that have a very specific request for room or Resort at a particular time. Rates will be subject to change until the rates for 2018 are published, which should hopefully happen sometime in the late spring. Keep an eye at the Disney Parks Blog for announcements and exciting news.

    To answer your question, I always recommend my friends and family to book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, when they have their dates finalized and that falls within your budget. Then, if Mickey surprises us with a Special Offer, you can try to apply the discount to your package and save some Disney Dollars. Typically, offers for your trip's time frame should become available during the fall.

    One last tip: remember you can book dining reservations up to 180 days in advance. Just visit the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page. Happy planning!
