    Hi, there!

     Ashley, I'm so happy to hear you're beginning to plan a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You'll find so much has changed since your last visit! You've come to the right place with your question. I'd love to help you plan a magical stay!

     Disney Resort Hotel Packages for the following year are generally released in early summer. Keep an eye on the Walt Disney World Resort website and the Disney Parks Blog in mid-June for announcements. Once you see that vacation packages have become available, go ahead and book! I like to book a Room, Ticket, and Dining Plan package for my family's Walt Disney World Resort vacations. You can book your vacation online or by calling a friendly Cast Member at the Reservation Center at (407) 939-1936. 

     You are going to love staying at a Disney Resort hotel. There are so many incredible benefits for Guests! Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is a great choice. My family loves this Resort hotel for its Southern charm and convenient ferryboat access to Disney Springs. And the Royal Guest Rooms are exceptionally magical! 

     Check the Special Offers, Deals, and Discounts page after you've booked your vacation. You may eventually see an offer that can be applied to your existing reservation, saving you a bit of money for souvenirs or a special event like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

     Thanks for stopping by, Ashley. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
