    When is the best time to purchase/book our flights if we're traveling to Disney World in December?

    Hello Angelita!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I see that you are planning on arriving for your Walt Disney World vacation in early December. This is one of my all-time favorite times to visit the resort. You can celebrate the season with Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, enjoy the Candlelight Processional at Epcot, and visit the decked out Resort hotels. It is a GREAT time to go!

    As far as when to purchase flights, my recommendation is to check out kayak.com.  This website can show you flights on numerous airlines and can often suggest if this is the best time to buy. Typically, we end up purchasing our flights 4 - 6 months before departure.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you need more assistance come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    See ya real soon,
