    My family is looking to book our first trip in January 2019 but it isn't showing that month available yet. When do they release those dates for booking? Will they release their specials at that time also?

    Hi, Mariah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for stopping by with your great question. I’m so happy to hear you want to plan your family’s first magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    You can actually reserve accommodations at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel up to 499 days in advance by calling (407) W-DISNEY, or (407) 934-7639. You can currently book rooms through the Walt Disney World Resort website for check-in dates up to and including Dec. 31, 2018 only, so you must call to reserve dates in 2019 rather than book online. 

    As of now, you’ll only be able to reserve a hotel room, not packages that include extras like park tickets or the Disney Dining Plan, for dates in 2019. You can, however, reserve your room at the 2018 rates, and when the rates and package details for 2019 are released (typically in the summertime, so likely very soon) your room rate will be automatically adjusted to reflect the current prices. You can also make a room-only reservation to be converted into a vacation package after next year’s rates are announced.  

    I hope this helps you make plans, Mariah. Please don’t hesitate to ask any other questions you can dream of as you continue planning your pixie-dusted family vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
