    I am planning a Vacation for my Family of 12 (one 6, one 5, one 3, one 11 and one 14) and 7 Adults. Since I am retired military I will be buying my tickets on base. Vacation time frame 10-20 March 2020. When is the earliest I can book our rooms?

    Hi Michael!

    Planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation in advance allows you to make every detail perfect, and although last-minute trips can be tons of fun, I personally prefer to have my vacation planned as far in advance as possible!  Luckily, you can begin making reservations 499 days in advance!  If you would like to book your hotel room this far out, you will need to call (407) 560-2428.  

    If you would like to book your Walt Disney World Hotel room reservation online, you will need to wait a bit longer.  Generally, online reservations become available in the spring for the next calendar year.  This means that you should start being able to book a room reservation online in the spring of 2019 for a vacation in 2020.  

    Don't forget that the Walt Disney World Resort often releases special offers on select Walt Disney World Resort Hotel rooms for members of the U.S. Military!  My husband and I have had the opportunity to take advantage of these deals and absolutely love them!  These deals are usually released in the fall for the upcoming year, so keep an eye out for those too.  Just remember, U.S. Military offers can't be booked online, so you will have to call (407) 939-5684 to take advantage of these amazing deals!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
