    Hi Jaime!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm actually kind of jealous of your Walt Disney World Resort planning patience. I'm the one who makes reservations a few weeks before arrival, and even then I can't concentrate on anything else!

    One of the neat things for those who are able to super-plan their vacations to the Most Magical Place on Earth is that you can make a Disney Resort Hotel reservation up to 499 days in advance of your check-out day. (The system currently only goes up to 499 days out, and the entirety of your stay has to fit within the calendar of the booking system.) This ensures that you have a bed for your head, or in this case a campsite for your tent or trailer. Generally ticket information isn't available until nine months to a year before today's date, and Disney Dining Plan information is usually released the summer before the new year. So while you won't be able to make all of your reservations in one swoop, you'll be able to plan one aspect of your vacation at a time, which makes the process a bit more fun for some. To add either of these to an already existing reservation you will need to call the Disney Reservation Line at (407) 939-1936.

    You can technically add a Disney Dining Plan to a Disney Resort Hotel reservation up until a few days before check in, and tickets can generally be added or upgraded minutes before you enter a Disney Theme Park. But you can also add any Special Offers, Deals or Discounts to your resort reservation, should once become available, once it's announced.

    Bonus Tip: You can book Disney Dining Reservations 180 days in advance even without a theme park ticket or Disney Resort Hotel reservation!

    We'll See You in 2020, Jaime!
