    bringing my children and grandchildren in July 2024. I need a real price estimate for vacation package for the cheapest resort in Disney ( including 3 rooms, park passes,and meal plan) for 5 adults and 5 children (ages 13,10,8,6,3) date I can reserve?

    Hey Howdy Hey Connie and welcome to planDisney!

    With four Theme Parks, two Water Parks and more than 25 Disney Resorts Collection hotel accommodations, a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort does require some planning to make the most of your Magical vacation. I love that you are getting a great jump on it, thinking about details and booking your vacation for 2024. There are some general dates and timelines to keep in mind as you are going through your planning, so let's go over them to get you the best time to book your vacation. 

    So the first thing that you would have access to when it comes to booking your vacation is room-only reservations. These are available for Guests to book up to 499 days in advance but are only available to book by calling Disney at (407) 939-1936 and speaking to a Cast Member. For room-only bookings, you are required to put a down payment of the first night's stay plus tax and the total amount due would be at check-in on your date of arrival. These room-only bookings are also able to be changed into vacation packages which tickets are usually not offered that far in advance. 

    Now if you wanted to wait and book the full vacation package for your party which includes Disney Resort Collection hotel accommodations and tickets, Disney releases these in early summer. Around the May or June time frame, Disney usually releases the following year's vacation package rates as well as ticket options. So if you are looking to book for July of 2024, around May or June of 2023 I would expect these prices to be released as well as your ability to book them online. 

    Also to consider your time of travel being in the future, currently, Disney Dining Plans are not available for Guests to purchase. There is a lot of time between now and your vacation so just keep an eye out for any announcements on the status which you will be able to find on the Disney Parks Blog as this is a very popular plan with a lot of interest in its return. 

    No matter when you book, I would also advise you to keep an eye on any Special Offers Disney may release closer to your date of travel. If you do notice an offer applies to your trip, head over to your My Disney Experience account or give Disney a call to see if you would be able to apply any discount to your trip! 

    I hope this information was helpful in getting approximate timelines on when to expect more information on booking your vacation in 2024. Sounds like you all will have a great time together in the Most Magical Place on Earth! Please let us know if you have any further questions, we are happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
