    How far In advance is it good to plan and booked a package to visit Walt Disney world

    Hi Graciela,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this excellent question.

    You are most definitely a Disney vacation planner after my own heart! How far in advance to plan, you asked? The sooner the better! In order to reserve the Disney Resort Hotels accommodations of my choice, I almost always book my trips as soon as the following year's package rates are announced. Then I keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the Special Offers page too. If a better discount comes along for my specific dates, I will then contact Disney to have them apply the discount to my reservation (based on availability). Right now you can reserve a Magic Your Way Vacation Package through December 31, 2018.

    You may also book a Room-Only Reservations at Disney Resort Hotels up to 499 days in advance of your intended checkout date. They will charge you for a single night based on the current rate, and then automatically adjust pricing once future rates are released. To make Room-Only Reservations 499 days in advance, you must contact Disney directly. Your reservation will then be posted to your My Disney Experience account. Any possible modifications can then be made directly via your Disney account. Also, if Disney releases another offer that best fits your budget, do call them at (407) 939-1936 to determine if it can be applied to the booking.

    I hope you found this information useful, Graciela. Please write back with more questions as you continue to plan your visit to the place where The Magic is Endless!
