    When is the best time to book a January 2025 vacation to Disney World? As of today, there are no available offers for this period. All current offers expire way before then.

    Hi there, Ninon! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Since you're already looking to book your 2025 Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you're clearly our kind of Mouseketeer. With so many things to look forward to on a magical vacation (delicious dining, thrilling attractions, and memorable character interactions), my fellow panelists and I were delightfully surprised when 2025 reservations became available to Guests in February of this year!

    Although reservations are currently available for your desired dates, I understand you're a bit disappointed no special offers are available during this time frame. Just like you, I always try to take advantage of available offers so that I have a bit more in the budget to use on snacks, merchandise, and Lightning Lanes once I'm in the middle of the magic. Special offers are released periodically throughout the year, and historically, discounts for January are released three to four months in advance. However, with this year's earlier-than-usual release of 2025 vacation packages, I would keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog for an announcement any time in the second half of the year. 

    I know you don't want to wait to book your magical vacation, so I have good news for you, Ninon! You can book your 2025 vacation today, and apply a special offer to your existing reservation once it becomes available. Simply log in to your My Disney Experience account, select  'My Plans', and click on your reservation. You should then see the option to 'modify or cancel' your reservation and add the booking with the promotional rate. If you experience any difficulties during the process, you can reach out to a helpful Cast Member at the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line. Either way, you'll find saving money is as easy as bibbidi bobbidi boo!

    By visiting in 2025, I'm so excited that you'll have the opportunity to traverse the Louisiana lowlands on Tiana's Bayou Adventure! My husband is a Louisiana native, and he can't wait to see how The Most Magical Place on Earth pays tribute to his home. Did you know that Disney Resort hotel Guests will also gain complimentary admission to a Walt Disney World water park on the day they check in to their hotel? This is such a fun benefit that Florida's warm temperatures will allow Guests to enjoy all year long! 

    I hope this was helpful, Ninon, and that you find yourself with a bit of extra pixie dust in your pocket during your January vacation. If you have any additional questions as you are planning, you're welcome to stop back by. Hakuna Matata! I'm always happy to help!

    Thinking Happy Thoughts,
