    How far in advance do you have to book room at the Contemporary? I realize that it open 499 days in advance, but wondering how far our the rooms become unavailable.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mary!

    Disney's Contemporary Resort has a special place in my heart. It's where I spent my first Walt Disney World vacation as a momma to two Mouseketeers, and just last year I had an epic birthday celebration there. It has an unbeatable location just a walk away from Magic Kingdom Park, fantastic dining options…and the monorail runs right through it!

    Mary, I wish I had the skills of crystal-ball dwelling Madame Leota from The Haunted Mansion so I could help you out with your question. It's impossible to predict whether a resort will have availability because of all the factors that impact occupancy. My best advice to you is: if you are absolutely certain that you want your stay to be at Disney's Contemporary Resort, and you have your heart set on a room category, such as Club Level or Theme Park View, I recommend booking as early as you can. At Walt Disney World, a dream is a wish your heart makes, but planning is the pixie dust that works behind the scenes.

    Remember that a deposit is all it takes to make a room reservation, so my approach is always to make the reservation, and then modify it later if things change or if applicable special offers come available. Of course, always check the terms and conditions for cancellation to be sure you're comfortable and aware of any key dates or deadlines. 

    Now, more than ever, it's an amazing time to visit Walt Disney World, with Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening this summer and so many new attractions and experiences coming soon all around the resort. I am a notorious Disney World vacation enabler, but my advice is to make that booking as early as you can. As we say in the Mickey business, reach out and find your happily ever after!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
