    We plan on visiting Disney world for 10 days in September 2018. When should I start reserving hotel rooms, dining plans, etc? We are hoping to stay at Art of Animation in a family suite.

    Dear Amanda,

    Thank you so much for stopping by here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about planning your 2018 Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    At this time, you are not able to book vacation packages online for 2018, but you can book your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room up to 499 days before your preferred check-in date for next year! You can call 1(407)W-DISNEY at any time to do that! If you prefer to wait until next year's packages are released, those should become available fairly soon as well!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
