    Hi, I am planning for a 1st trip to WDW! We are looking at spring 2021... I really would like to get a down payment in on my vacation ASAP but I see that Disney is not booking for 2021 yet. Is there a vacation planner I can use to get started with things?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You’ve got a friend in us, as we are a bunch of planners around here, so I’m super happy to help!

    You can book your vacation 499 days in advance. So depending on when you want to come, you should be able to make a reservation now! (Our phones are too smart, I just asked it when 499 days from today was, and up popped June 8th, 2021, so that covers spring!) If you’d prefer to do it online, it looks like currently, you can book through December 31st, 2020. Since you plan on visiting next spring, if you want to book now, you can do so by calling Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-4229. For an extra delightful stay, consider booking Disney's Art of Animation Resort! It is fantastically themed, and has one of the most varied and delicious food courts on property. You will also be on the Disney Skyliner line, which is super convenient for getting to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

    My fellow mom Tabitha suggests that once you secure your Resort hotel, keep an EAR out on the Special Offers page. If you find a dining package or ticket offering that appeals to you, call Reservations to talk with a Cast Member who can assist you in adjusting your vacation package.

    Stephanie, if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to come back. We’re always here to help.
