    I want to book a package & start making payments for Jan 2025 but it’s not available yet. Can I book a Dec ‘24 package and start paying then modify my reservation to Jan when those packages are released and my payments transferred to new dates?

    Hello Shannon - thank you for visiting planDisney with your question!

    You can certainly book a December 2024 Walt Disney World vacation package and modify the dates once the 2025 dates are available and it's fairly easy to do. To change the dates of your vacation package, simply look for the Change Reservation button in My Plans on the Disney website.  If for some reason you do not see this option, you can contact a Disney Resort Hotel Reservations cast member.  Because your confirmation number will remain the same, any payments made will be used towards your new dates.

    As an option, here is what I prefer to do when waiting to book a future Disney vacation. I purchase Disney gift cards on a regular basis at retailers who offer them at a discount.  I then consolidate the gift cards online at  Once I'm ready to book my next vacation, I use my Disney gift card(s) as payment.  

    Regardless of which way you choose to plan for your vacation, January 2025 will be here before you know it!  Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist with.
