    How early is too early to book a Disney World Vacation? We are a family of 5 and plan to go in September or October of 2013 and was wondering when reservations for the new Value Resort Family Suites would be accepted and when reservations for meals too?

    Hi Katherine,

    I love that you are thinking ahead. In general, you can only make your resort reservations about 12 months in advance. Since you want to come in 2013, you would need to book them in September or October of 2012 which is still almost 18 months away. The Disney Cruise line does allow a larger booking window.

    For Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs), these are currently booking at 180 days in advance of check in. However, this number has changed a few times in the last year so keep checking back.

    I did drive by the new resort this weekend and it is going to be great. The outside of one building was finished and I really like the location.

    Sign up with Disney to receive all the latest information on the new resort!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
