    Can I book a trip 3 years in advance?

    Hey Howdy Hey Tamera and welcome to planDisney! 

    No matter how far in advance, there are always reasons to get excited about planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort! I love that you are thinking well ahead for your trip and trying to get the planning done early. There are certain timeframes to keep in mind when booking your vacation so let's jump and get a plan going!

    Walt Disney World is a super popular place for world travelers all around and Disney is well aware that planning in advance is always recommended. This is why Disney does allow for room-only reservations to be made up to 499 days in advance for most Disney Resort Collection hotels. When making these reservations, you would need to call Disney at (407) 939-1936 and a Cast Member will be happy to help book your room. Room-only bookings do come with a down payment equal to your first night's stay plus tax with the final payment due at check-in. 

    While you can make your room-only reservation by calling, you also have two options when it comes to booking a vacation package, which includes your room and Theme Park Tickets. If you do make your room-only reservation, by calling the same number above, you can also have the Cast Member change this reservation to a vacation package. You can also wait to book your vacation package online. 

    Vacation package information and availability usually open up to be booked online in the early summer of the year prior. Disney usually releases this information around May or June for the following year if you wanted to wait until around this time next year to get this part taken care of yourself online. Vacation packages can be made online with a deposit of $200.00 and final payment due 30 days from your date of travel.

    All reservations with Walt Disney World can be linked to your My Disney Experience account. This account is the one place to have everything planning available at a glance as well as a place to make further reservations when it comes to dining reservations or anything you book from Disney Enchanting Extras Collection

    Planning your vacation should be where the fun starts. Researching all the resorts available and looking at all the options each theme park has to offer is a great start to getting excited about your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth! If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out, we would be happy to help!

    Happy Planning,
