    How far in advance can you plan a Walt Disney World vacation? I am trying to plan a future vacation for Spring 2018 and I wonder when I can start.

    Dear John,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about planning your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I also love to plan ahead so that I can starting counting down to the magic as soon as possible!

    At this time, 2018 Walt Disney World Resort hotel "room only" reservations can be made for 2018 by calling (407) 939-5277 up to 499 days in advance of your check-in date. 2018 packages cannot yet be booked online, but I advise you to check back in with us frequently because Walt Disney World Resort typically releases vacation package details for the following year in the late spring or early summer!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
