    I would like to book my vacation in January 2020 and I've been checking for months but the calendar won't extend past December. I know im a few months early but i like to plan things in advance so i can pay month to month. When will 2020 open?

    Hi Shannon,

    I bet you're looking SO forward to visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next January and chomping at the bit to start planning all of the details of your trip! While the dates for the Epcot International Festival of the Arts have not yet been announced, the 2018 dates began on January 18th, so hopefully you'll be able to enjoy the incredible entertainment, inspiring artwork, and delicious food while you're at "The Most Magical Place on Earth!"

    While Disney Resort Hotel Packages aren't quite available to book yet, it shouldn't be too much longer! Historically, they've become available to book in mid-June of the year prior to travel, so I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll be able to start turning those Disney dreams into reality soon! While it will be nice to be able to make payments on your trip once you have your package booked, one idea for you now is to start using your vacation savings to purchase Disney Gift Cards, which you can later use to pay for your trip.

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shannon, and please come back and see us again with any other questions you may have as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation early next year!
