    My family just got back from a trip to WDW last month. We are already planning our next return trip, but were curious when pricing would be released for 2019. We are planning on a late January/early February 2019 trip. When can be begin online booking?

    Hello Tracie! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When I first got bit by the frequent Walt Disney World Resort vacation bug, it was the day after we returned from our first vacation as a family. Nowadays, I find I am usually planning a future Walt Disney World Resort vacation up to 3 vacations in advance.

    While I always recommend a solid plan organized well in advance, booking Walt Disney World Resort vacations online are restricted to calendar-year releases. Walt Disney World Resort has historically released the upcoming calendar year for online bookings and Magic Your Way Vacation Packages in the middle of the previous summer. That means that you should be looking to book your Walt Disney World Resort vacation online around July 2018.

    If you want to begin booking your Walt Disney World Resort vacation sooner or make Reservations for that must-experience Resort Hotel earlier, Room-Only Reservations may be made up to 499 days in advance of your planned Check-In by contacting a Cast Member at (407)939-1936.

    Once you have your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Reservations, you may Change or Cancel your Reservations once Magic Your Way Vacation Packages, Special Offers or booking online becomes available through your My Disney Experience Account or by contacting a Cast Member. Doing this will secure the date and Resort Hotel of your choice while being able to take advantage of offers once they become available.

    Happy Planning!
