    We are planning a trip to WDW in May of 2011 when should I start planning it??

    Hi, Jessica!   Technically, you can book your "room only" vacation 499 days out, so that falls somewhere in early 2010.   You can reserve a room, but the price will not be confirmed until the 2011 prices are posted, usually around August of each year.

    I personally would wait until prices/packages are posted at the end of next summer to book.   Until then, start browsing through the resort options at, and sign-up for e-newsletters from and so you can be kept up to date on happenings in Walt Disney World and also stay informed on packages and special offers.  

    Plan out your dates, budget, and resort choices so you will be ready to plan your magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
