    I am planning a family Disney World vacation for the summer of 2022 and want to learn more about vacation layaway options. We want to stay on property and visit all the parks on property. Where do I go to start my vacation planning?

    Hi, Laura!  Welcome to planDisney!  You've come to the right place to start planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    It's never too early to start dreaming of visiting Walt Disney World Resort, but if you're planning to travel in 2022, you'll have to wait just a bit to actually book your vacation package.  In the past, vacation packages for the upcoming year have become available to book during the summer months.  For example, Guests were able to begin booking trips for the earlier months of 2021 in June of 2020.  As next summer approaches, be sure to keep an eye on the Walt Disney World website and the Disney Parks Blog to see when your desired vacation dates become available to reserve.

    In the meantime, you can start doing your resEARch on Walt Disney World Resort vacations.  Then when it's time to book your trip, you'll be able to plan a visit that's practically perfect in every way.  I recommend first reading up on all of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to decide which one you would like to call your home away from home.  Next, you can see what each theme park has to offer so that you may make a list of your family's must-do attractions.  You'll also want to take a look at all of the delicious dining locations to plan where you might want to eat during your visit.

    Vacation package pricing varies from year to year, and prices are always subject to change.  However, if you take a look at the resort hotel and theme park ticket pricing for this summer, it can give you a rough idea of how much to budget for your vacation.  While there is no vacation layaway option, purchasing Disney Gift Cards is a great way to start saving for your trip.  Disney Gift Cards can be used to pay for your vacation package and can also be used as payment at most Walt Disney World Resort locations.  You can even combine and manage your gift cards through the Disney Gift Card website so that you don't have to keep track of a bunch of physical cards.

    As you get ready to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth, our planDisney website can be a wonderful resource for you.  Be sure to check out our Video Library and the Panel Extras section for a wealth of vacation planning information.  If you have additional questions as you plan for your trip, please don't hesitate to ask.  We love to help!

    Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
