    I am planning a family trip for Christmas of ‘22 and I was wondering if I could change the time for my rental reservation once I book my flight ? Once I pay the deposit is that time set in stone ? Also what are some big things I should look out for ?

    Welcome to planDisney, Alexis! Walt Disney World Resort is one of my favorite places in the world during the winter holidays. Your family is in for a truly magical experience!

    Vacation planning always involves so many moving pieces, so I completely understand your desire for some flexibility. Luckily, Walt Disney World Resort vacation packages help ensure you have everything you need planned in advance for an effortless experience once you arrive.

    My fellow planDisney panelist, Tracy, recently provided an excellent answer to another Guest's similar question that you might want to check out! Long story short, you can reach out to a Cast Member by calling (407) 939-5277 to update the timing of your car rental reservation or to change other components of your vacation package. Some changes can also be made online via your My Disney Experience account or by using the My Disney Experience Mobile App. In most cases, changes need to be made at least 30 days prior to your arrival, which should be plenty of time to get your flights booked!

    I assume that "big things I should look out for" refers to all the exciting things going on during the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort, and oh boy, there's so much to do, see, and eat! Let me share a few of my favorites. First, the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is a great way to experience delicious holiday food and drink from around the world. One of my favorites from last year is the New Year Celebration Soba at Shi Wasu Holiday Kitchen - I hope it returns for 2022! Also at EPCOT, the Holiday Cookie Stroll is a fun and yummy activity that actually rewards you for eating more cookies - hooray!

    My family also loves to attend the various After Hours Events throughout the year, but especially during the holiday season. This past year, I had an amazing time at the Disney Very Merriest After Hours Event at Magic Kingdom Park. Offerings do change from time to time, so be sure to check the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news.

    Have a magical trip!
