    How far in advance do you recommend book the hotel?

    Hi Jennifer!

    It's never too early to book your Walt Disney World Resort! Typically, when our family begins planning our next Disney trip, our first step is to pick our travel dates. Once we figure those out, the next step is the resort!

    When you finally narrow down that decision (it may be the hardest decision you'll make), I'd go ahead and make the reservation if your dates are within the next year. If it is possible, the latest you'll want to make your reservation is about 7 months before travel. This way you can begin planning your dining and special experiences which often have a 180-day reservation window. As a resort guest, you may be able to make your dining reservations sooner (180 days from your arrival date plus the next 10 days). This is a great advantage if you'd like to dine at some of the more popular and exclusive Disney restaurants.

    Happy Planning! Please let the Moms Panel know if we can help with any additional details!
