    How far in advance can I book a DW trip for December 2015? I know in the past you could book 499 days out. Have not been since 2012 and want to start planning now. Thank you for your help.

    Hi Casey,

    Welcome Home!  I'm so happy you are planning your next Magical Walt Disney World vacation!  In my opinion, it's never too early to begin planning your next vacation.  You will find that all of the Panelists here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel are always planning our next vacation.

    Currently Guests may make room-only reservations up to 499 days in advance.  In order to make this reservation you will need to call (407) - W - DISNEY (934-7639), as you are unable to make reservations this far in advance online.  However once package prices are released, you may convert your room-only reservation to a package and add items such as theme park tickets and Disney Dining Plan if you like. 

    If you are planning on visiting during a popular time or have a certain Resort you really want, I think it is an excellent idea to make a room-only reservation as soon as you are within your 499 day window.  Additionally, in the future if your vacation falls during a time period in which a Special Offer is released you will even have the ability to call and apply the discount.  It really is a win-win!

    Thank you for your question Casey!  Please come back and visit us with all of your questions as you continue to make your MAGICAL vacation plans.
