    We have decided on coming to Disney World Oct. 2016. When can should I start booking our vacation? If we wanted to do a package when can we start that? Thank you.

    Hello Mary,

    What a great choice!  October is my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World!  The weather is great, crowds are generally manageable, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a must-do and you can enjoy the delicious options at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  

    You can always make room-only reservations up to 499 days before your check-out date by calling the reservation line at (407) W-DISNEY (934-7639).  Rates won't yet be guaranteed, but you'll have the peace of mind knowing you have exactly the dates and Disney Resort hotel room you want for your vacation.  Once 2016 information is released, you can then call back to convert that room-only reservation to a package and confirm rates.  If past years are a clue, I'd guess that 2016 information will be released around July 2015.  

    Wishing you pixie-dusted vacation planning, Mary!  Please visit us here again if we can help answer any other questions.
