    Hi! I'm planning a family trip for May 2017, I want to know if I can reserve from now and later change for a vacation package available? Does Disney allow changes in an already made reservation? Tks!

    Hello Sonia,

    The planner in me loves the fact that you're already thinking about your Walt Disney World vacation in 2017!  You can always make a room-only reservation up to 499 days in advance.  The specific date is actually calculated from your planned check-out date.  A handy-dandy calculator to figure out that exact date can be found at  On that day, just call (407) W-DISNEY (934-7639) to make your reservation.  Rates won't yet be guaranteed, but you'll have the peace of mind of knowing you have exactly the room you want for your vacation dates.  Once the 2017 rates and packages are released, you'll then be able to call back to modify your reservation in any way you'd like, such as adding theme park tickets, the Disney Dining Plan, Memory Maker and more.  

    Wishing you pixie-dusted planning, Sonia! Please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel and to find the answers to all of your planning questions.
