    How far out can you schedule park reservations? We are planning a trip for next October and want to make sure we reserve our spots on time.

    Hi Chelsea,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so excited to see you planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    The happy news is that you could make Disney Park Pass system reservations for your travel dates now! Check the theme park reservation availability calendar and you can see how far out Guests can make park pass reservations. Once you book a vacation package or purchase theme park tickets, you need to link those in your My Disney Experience account. Once they are linked, you should be able to make park pass reservations for the days that you have valid theme park admission.

    We adore staying at one of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels. On our last visit, we stayed at Disney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. Last December we stayed at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and loved the walking path to Magic Kingdom. A few years ago I did a girls trip with my girls and we stayed at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort. Decide which resort hotel amenities you prefer and then choose your resort hotel accordingly.

    Keep an eye on the dining reservation window. Currently, we can make dining reservations 60-days prior to arrival. I am always up by 5:45 a.m. on dining reservation day to make sure we get all of our dining reservations. Recently, one of my girls has assumed this responsibility and I am happy to report that she did an excellent job for our most recent trip.

    Chelsea, keep doing your research. It sounds like you are making some fabulous plans!

    Magic and memories,
