    I am planning a surprise trip for my wife's family for her parents 35th anniversary May 12-20 2012. There will be 6 adults and 6 kids, 10 to 3 years old. How far in advance should I book rooms? If Disney releases a better deal, can I still get it?

    Hi Edward,

    Room reservations can be made up to 499 days in advance and you can book 2012 packages now. If there is a specific resort and room type that you are interested in, you should book sooner than later.

    Keep an eye on this link HERE. If a Special Offer is released for your travel dates, be sure to call 407-W-DISNEY as soon as possible and request to have your existing reservation converted over to the special. Keep in mind that the number of packages available for the special offers is limited.

    Also, with 12 people you qualify as a Grand Gathering (for parties of 8 people or more over the age of 3). This makes you eligible for several special experiences. I recommend that you call 407-WDW-PLAN to speak with a Travel Planner. They can help you book your resort reservations, put in requests to be located near each other, help with dining reservations and more.

    Have a wonderful vacation and please let me know if I can assist you further,
