    I am planning a trip for December 10-18 at a resort that is not my home resort, what is the soonest time I can book my reservation

    Welcome to planDisney, Jennifer! Hey there, hi there, ho there! Mickey and I are as happy as can be that you're planning a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth over the holiday season.

    Thank you for being a Disney Vacation Club Member! For your home resort, your booking window opens as early as 11 months before your check-in date; but when trying to reserve a stay for all other Disney Vacation Club Resorts, you'll need to wait until seven months out (for your dates that would be May 10, 2022). Your online booking window opens at 8 AM Eastern Time, or you can give Member Services a call at (800) 800-9800 at 9:00 AM Eastern Time.

    December tends to be a very popular time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, and availability may be limited at the 7-month mark. Consider booking at your home resort now, and doing so confirms that you will at least be able to stay on property during the dates you want. When the 7-month booking window opens, you can switch your reservation to your desired Disney Vacation Club Resort by calling Member Services. If there is no availability, you can still waitlist at that resort without worrying about missing out on the magic!  

    Stay tuned to the Walt Disney World website, where they will be posting details on how to Celebrate the Spirit of the Season as we get closer. My favorite Christmastime event is the Candlelight Processional at EPCOT!

Meet the Panelist: Eean, Pennsylvania

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania! I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique. It's incredible how many people you can find who love talking about "The Most Magical Place On Earth!" I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at my monthly Bunco club for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
