    Hello! I'm planning a family trip for May 2017! Does anyone know when Disney World usually release packages for an upcoming year? Also the packages that are offered are they usually the same year to year?

    Hi Shelesia,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are undoubtedly a planner after my own heart!

    I wish I had a crystal ball to predict if past special offers will be released again in 2017, but, alas, I do not. What I can tell you with certainty is that you may reserve accommodations at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels up to 499 days in advance of your intended checkout date. However, you cannot make an on-line reservation for a Magic Your Way Vacation Package until the actual package pricing is announced. Historically, rates have been released during the summer so you can expect the 2017 package prices to come out around the same time this year.

    Let me offer another suggestion, book a room-only reservation today by calling Disney at (407) WDW-DISNEY or (407) 939-7639. They will charge you for a single night based on this year's rate, and then automatically adjust your reservation once the 2017 pricing is released. After the 2017 package pricing is announced, you may convert your room-only reservation into a Magic Your Way Vacation Package reservation. Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the Special Offers page too. If a better discount comes along, simply call Disney to change your package reservation, based on availability, to the offer that best fits your budget.

    I hope this helps, Shelesia. Please write back with more questions as you continue to plan your family's May 2017 visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.
