    How far in advance can you book packages? So not just room only - I am looking for 12/18-12/24 for 2020! Hearing conflicting answers so just wanted to ask here! Thanks in advance!!

    Hi Colleen!

    Thanks for your question. It never hurts to plan your Disney World vacation as early as possible, so kudos to you! As best as we can, our family does the same: It allows us to create a budget as to how much we wish to contribute monthly to our Disney vacation (as opposed to large lump sums), and it give us something to look forward to when we formally commit to our trip.  :-)

    So for room-only reservations, you can book Disney Resort rooms 499 days in advance, which, at this writing, would be early December 2020 (a few weeks before your travel date).

    For Disney World vacation packages (i.e. resort room, Disney Dining Plan, tickets), the packages for the following year are released during the Summer period of the previous year historically. Once they are released, Disney Vacation packages for the following year (2020 in this regard) cover the entire calendar year!

    Be sure to visit the Disney Vacation packages site to start planning your Disney vacation.

    Wishing you all the best and a terrific Disney trip in December 2020!
