    Hi! I plan on visiting disneyworld in February of 2009, and I know that you cannot book yet on the internet. When I called Iwas told that I also couldn't book yet over the phone, so I was wondering am I calling the right number?


    There is a lot of information one needs to learn to be able to answer every type of question that a Cast Member might receive, and the information changes fairly frequently.  In my experience, sometimes the answer you get the first time you call Disney isn't correct.  Whenever that happens, I politely finish the phone call, and call back in the hopes of getting a more knowledgeable Cast Member, or getting confirmation that the first answer was, perhaps, correct.

    Having said all of that, in your case the Cast Member might have been correct, if you were asking to reserve a vacation package, and not just a room.  Since prices aren't yet available for 2009 rooms (nor park tickets, nor dining), Disney will only let you reserve a room, and not a "package" over the phone. You can reserve rooms (without guaranteed pricing) as far as 499 days in advance.  Once pricing is out (approx. August or September 2008 for 2009 pricing), then you will be able to make any type of package reservation you desire.

    The phone number to call is 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639).

    Hope that helps.
