    how far in advance can I start planning my disney vacation

    Hi there, Melissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad that you stopped by with a question for us. I'm sure you are looking forward to getting your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planned, and it's great that you're getting started so early. The more time you have to plan, the better!

    Vacation package prices for next year have not been released just yet, but we should see those announced very soon. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, because you'll definitely see this exciting news there first. Disney Resort Hotel room-only reservations can be made up to 499 days in advance, so you could possibly make a room reservation now if you would like. Otherwise, just stay tuned and I'm sure you'll be able to book your vacation package for next year very soon.

    Once you've made your resort reservation, you'll want to start thinking about dining reservations. You can make those 180 days in advance of your check-in date and if you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can make your Fastpass+ reservations 60 days in advance.

    I hope this helps with your planning and if you think of any other questions, just let us know. Happy planning and have a magical day!
