    Hi! I’m wanting to plan a trip to WDW for my daughters 5th birthday. It’s a ways out, Nov 2025, when will I be able to book our dates/buy tickets? I’m an early bird planner!

    Hiya Heather! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this great question!

    It's never too early to start the planning process for a special Walt Disney World trip! You can start mapping out where you plan to eat, what parks you want to visit, and exploring any experiences that you want to take part in. While you are a bit early to start making any concrete plans, you can start dreaming about a magical Disney birthday celebration!

    New Walt Disney World vacation packages for the following year are typically released at the beginning of the summer. For 2025 packages, I would expect them to be released in either May or June of 2024. If this is the case, you'll still have about a year and a half to plan your November 2025 trip. This timeframe is solely based on when vacation packages have been released in previous years and is only speculation on my part. Your best bet will be to follow the Disney Parks Blog at the beginning of next year for any announcements about future bookings.

    Even though you can't book your stay just yet, you can certainly start saving for your trip. Purchasing Disney Gift Cards are a great way to allocate funds directly toward your visit. You can use them for payments toward your vacation package, at dining and merchandise locations at the parks and resorts, and for Disney Genie+.

    With your daughter turning 5 years old, a visit to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on this upcoming trip may be in order. We took my oldest when she turned five and she had an amazing time! Being transformed into her favorite Disney princess was the most magical experience. 

    Heather, by starting the planning process early, you are set to have the best time at the Most Magical Place on Earth! Stop back anytime to planDisney with additional questions!

    Have a great day!
