    We're planning our second trip to WDW for Spring 2016. We want to stay on property, have dining plan, etc - when is the best time to book a trip this far out? I know in year past there is usually a 20/30% off deal around that time. Thanks!!

    Hi, Megan!

    Welcome, and thanks for your great question. I’m glad you’re already thinking about your next vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    You can reserve accommodations at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel up to 499 days in advance by calling (407) W-DISNEY (934-7639), so it is still a bit too early to make reservations for a spring 2016 vacation. As you may have noticed, you can currently check prices and book rooms through the Walt Disney World website for check-in dates up to and including Dec. 31, 2014 only. However, in a few months you will be able to book by phone. As of that time, you’ll only be able to reserve a hotel room, not packages that include extras like park tickets or the Disney Dining Plan, for dates in 2016. You will be reserving your room at the 2015 rates, but when the rates and package details for 2016 are released (usually in the month of August immediately prior to your travel year) the rate will be automatically adjusted to reflect current prices. You can also make a room-only reservation to be converted into a vacation package after that year’s rates are announced.  

    I hope this helps, Megan, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted Walt Disney World Resort visit in 2016! Please write back with more questions as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
