    How far can I book my disneyworld trip ?

    Hiya Laura! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy, it's that time! Time to plan a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! I can feel your excitement from here! I love a Guest who plans, as I believe this is the key to unlocking the most magic during your vacation.

    Good news, Laura! Guests can book a room-only reservation at the Walt Disney World Resort up to 500 days in advance. Ka-Chow! While this may seem like a long time away, time flies when you're planning for a fairytale! Since technology sometimes takes time to catch up, you'll want to call a Cast Member at the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations Line. They'll be able to handle booking your room for you over the phone.

    If you're interested in booking a Vacation Package, you'll have to hold tight just a bit longer. Vacation Package options are usually released in June or July for the following year. Vacation Packages allow you to book your room and theme park tickets for all Guests in your travel party. Disney Parks Blog is usually the go-to source of breaking news and updated information, so keep your eyes on their page for the Vacation Package announcement!

    While there is no right answer, I often prefer booking my room-only reservation as far in advance as possible, then make adjustments if needed. As some Guests are not as proactive as you, Laura, you'll often see the most availability when booking further in advance. So if there is a specific Disney Resort Hotel you wish to visit or a room type that you've been dreaming about, go ahead and get that reservation on the books!

    I hope this helps answer your question today, Laura!

    See ya real soon,
