    What is the earliest you can book at room at a resort. My family is planning a trip at Christmas in 2022 and I would like to get a good room with good rates at one of the resorts. We are currently planning on 7, possibly 8, adults and a couple of children.

    Welcome to planDisney, Jenna!

    I'm so glad to hear you are planning ahead for your Christmas 2022 visit!  The holiday season is my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World Resort.  The weather is usually pleasant and mild, and the atmosphere is so festive with all the beautiful holiday decorations and yummy seasonal treats.

    Normally, room rates and vacation packages are released sometime in the summer (usually June) for the following calendar year, and room-only reservations may be made up to 499 days in advance by calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line at (407) 939-1936.  I think most will agree that this year has been anything but normal!  At the present time, reservations may be made through September 26, 2021.  We have not yet received any information about when bookings for trips beyond that date will become available.

    I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any news or announcements.  In the meantime, browse the various Disney Resort Hotels online to get an idea of resorts that suit your taste and budget.  You'll find Resort Overviews that describe each resort and its amenities, as well as photo galleries.  You can use sample dates in 2020 or 2021 to get an idea of rates (prices subject to change.)  Most standard Disney Resort Hotel rooms sleep 4 or 5 Guests; Family Suites (available at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's All-Star Music Resort) and The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort sleep 6, and 2 or 3-bedroom Deluxe Villas sleep 8 to 12.  At this time, some Disney Resort Hotels remain closed and do not have a projected opening date.  I have included this "Know Before You Go" information with the most recent operational updates for Disney Resort Hotels.

    If you would like more specific resort recommendations or advice, please feel free to write us back.  We are always happy to help.
