    Hi- My family and I are wanting to stay at the Disney's Fort Wilderness Campsites come March of 2019. When is the earliest I can make a reservation?

    Hi Carrie!

    I love our guests who plan ahead and you certainly are one of them. When getting your resort booked as far ahead as possible you will not have the chance of disappointment at not getting a reservation where you want to be during your Walt Disney World vacation!

    Guests may book a room only reservation 499 days ahead. But this can only be done by calling Disney directly at 407-934-7639 or 407-939-1936. You cannot book this far in advance on line. When you book this far in advance you will be charged the current deposit rate for one night lodging but once the rates are announced for your booking year they will need to adjust the deposit. So booking early does not lock in pricing. What it locks in is a room for you at your favorite resort.

    Booking early also will not allow you to book packages so you would later need to call and adjust that as well. Rates and packages are often announced mid to late summer for the next year so keep an eye on things happening at that time. Keep checking back to the Special Offers page on the Disney website where you can track new things being announced that you might be interested in.

    The Fort Wilderness Resort has become a popular place to stay and during many times it is very difficult to get reservations for a site. It is smart to book ahead and have it in place and adjust as time gets closer. If you have more questions about planning your upcoming vacation don't hesitate to ask. Every fall my husband and I call this resort our home for several weeks as we enjoy the warm temperatures of Florida!
