    How far in advance can I plan a trip to Disney World?

    Hello Linda!  Thank you so much for stopping by planDisney!

    Did you know that this past Tuesday was National Plan for Vacation Day? The best way to get through these dark, cold winter months is to make plans for a trip to a place that is warm, sunny and full of magic!  Walt Disney World Resort is the Mary Poppins of vacation destinations, meaning that it is practically perfect in every way! Let's start planning!

    The very earliest that you can begin making your Walt Disney World vacation a reality is 500 days before your planned visit.  At this time, you are able to book a "room-only" reservation.  This means that you will be able to book your Guest room at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel.  From a tropical Deluxe Polynesian Villa to a larger-than-life, but budget conscious room at Disney's All-Star Music Resort, you and your party are sure to find a theme and price that makes you smile at one of the Resorts on property.  Usually, reservations this far out need to be booked over the phone, not online.  Calling (407) 939-1936 should get you connected to a knowledgeable Cast Member who can start setting up your vacation!

    If you're looking to book an entire vacation package where you can combine your Theme Park tickets and Guest room reservation, you might have to wait just a little bit longer!  Typically, Disney Vacation Packages are available for booking in June or July for the following calendar year.  I would suggest keeping your eye on the Walt Disney World Resort website or the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news about Vacation Packages and Special Offers that you may be eligible for during your visit.  

    I know how exciting the planning can be, after all we are planDisney!  Enjoy the planning process and come back and see us again if you have any other questions!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
