    Hey! I'm super excited to book my first trip to Disney World in 2019. When will I be able to look and book hotels? And when will park hours be posted?

    Hi Amanda!

    Planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is always exciting, but it is especially magical if it is your first time!  Of course, one of the first things to do is choose which incredible Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you would like to experience!  

    If you would like to make your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservations online, you will be able to do so once the Magic Your Way Vacation Packages are released for 2019.  These packages are usually released in the summer for the following year, so keep checking back!  If you are interested in booking your hotel room only, you can do so up to 499 days in advance by calling 407-560-CHAT or 407-560-2428.  If you would like to go ahead and book your room-only reservation now, then upgrade to a package or take advantage of a promotional deal once it is announced, as long as there is availability, you can do so!  Just remember that if you do this, your original room-only rate will not be guaranteed.  

    Park hours are usually released 180 days in advance, but they are always subject to change.  Make sure to keep an eye on the interactive park calendar and download the My Disney Experience mobile app to make sure you have access to the most up-to-date information!  I'm sure you will have a perfectly magical adventure at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
