    Welcome Shalyn!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We love to hEAR from you and hope this is just the beginning of your visits looking Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning answers and advice. It's awesome to hear your eagerly awaiting planning your trip.

    You are able to book room only reservations up to 499 days prior to your visit, but vacation packages are currently only available for dates in 2018. Historically, packages have been released for the following year, sometime in the summer prior. This means 2019 packages should be released later this year, 2020 in the middle of next year and so on. Most packages require a deposit and then you are able to make payments as your vacation approaches. As your dates get near, you'll also want to keep an eye on the Special Offers page of the Walt Disney World Resort website.

    Happy planning, Shalyn, and please come back and visit us again soon! We are all EARS and happy to help with your vacation planning questions.
