    Hello moms, happy holidays to everyone. I am planning a trip in October 2021. I was wondering when is the earliest I can buy tickets? Can I buy them now? I would get the flexible ones because we know roughly the dates but they aren’t in stone yet. I

    Hi there, Christopher!

    Thank you and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Good for you to start thinking about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation early! Part of the fun for me is the planning process. It's so exciting to start thinking about which attractions I'm going to experience and all the delicious food I'm going to eat!

    Since you'd like the flexible tickets, I would suggest waiting for a Walt Disney World vacation package to be released. It's best to do everything in a package with the room, tickets, and adding Disney Dining Plans. The Walt Disney World vacation packages are refundable up to 30 days out from travel and only require a $200 deposit-- *note: prices are subject to change without notice. Canadian packages are available with special discounts and offer more room for flexibility on travel dates. These are usually released over the summer for the following year. If you were to buy your theme park tickets outright at the moment, they would be for specific dates. Since you're unsure of the exact dates you are traveling, I would keep an eye out for the Walt Disney World vacation packages. 

    I hope you found this information helpful. I am so excited for you to begin the planning process, Christopher!
