    I am planning on visiting Disney World in 2026 how soon could I book my vacation package and start making payments?

    Hi there, Wilma, and welcome to planDisney!

    An October visit to Walt Disney World Resort sounds heavenly. My family loves the slightly cooler weather and attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for its unlimited trick-or-treating. Let’s get into when you can start your vacation planning journey. 

    At the moment, both room-only and vacation package bookings are not available for 2026. Currently, you can only make reservations trips from now through October 2025. But I can give you some idea about when to expect the dates to open. In current years, the following year’s reservations become available in either early or late spring. Fingers crossed that in early 2025, you see what you’re looking for for 2026. I highly recommend that you frequent the Disney Parks Blog to stay on top of when the dates are released. You can make payments toward Disney vacation packages once you’ve officially booked your vacation. The trip must be paid in full by the time you’re 30 days from your arrival.

    There’s so much that you can look into until your grand adventure begins. Check out information about the My Disney Experience App, Disney Gift Cards, Disney Genie+ Service, Individual Lightning Lanes, Disney Resorts Collection hotel amenities and more! Also, definitely listen to the planDisney Podcast because the tips and tricks that we share come from our own personal experiences.

    I hope that you have just as much fun planning as you will on your vacation. If you have any other questions about your Most Magical vacation, give us a holler at planDisney
