    I have booked a holiday with flights, hotel and tickets included. I want to upgrade my seats but i need a reference number to do this. I haven’t received any information yet as the flights are over 12 months away. Will i receive this closer to the time?

    Hi Bethany!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    It's always a pleasure to assist my fellow guests from the UK.  I'm very happy to help with this question as I often upgrade my seats on our long-haul flights for a lovely comfortable experience, making a very nice start to the holiday.

    Flights are not released until around 11 months prior to the travel date, at which time a reference number should be available - this will be a six-digit alpha-numeric number (any combination of letters and numbers) and is unique to your booking.  Your reference number may not be available until 11 months before the return date.  If you have booked directly with the Walt Disney Travel Company, you may see this booking reference on 'Manage My Booking' on the website, or they might send your updated travel documents to you.  If not, please call them on this UK freephone number: 0800 169 0730.  

    If you made your booking with a 3rd party UK tour operator, you will need to contact them to obtain your flight reference number.

    As you have booked your holiday package for next year, I hope you've been able to utilise the fantastic Free Dining & Drinks offer for 2025!  This is too good to miss!  I've attached a video to this answer which explains everything about the Disney dining plans.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions, or you can send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World.
