    We're pre-planning a trip for the end of July 2018. When can we book our room reservations? I know this is a long shot, but in the past, any discounts over the summer? I can't wait to be back!!!

    Hi Melissa,

    A vacation far far away, however there's no better time to start planning the perfect Walt Disney World vacation than right now!

    Did you know that you can make Disney Resort hotel room reservations up to 500 days in advance? You do need to call a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936, or talk to your travel agent. This is important to do if your dates are fixed and you want to secure that special room. Note that prices quoted today are not final, and will be subject to change to the actual ones when announced later next year.

    However, if you are looking for discounts or Special Offers, they typically start being offered to the general public, approximately six months in advance. Some Guests get extra Pixie Dust and may receive a personalized offer up to 9 months in advance, so keep an eye for any emails or mailers in your mailbox. Note that you may need to adjust your dates or even Resort hotels as availability may be limited. If you have a reservation already, simply call your travel agent or vacation planning specialist to apply the special discount.

    One last tip: Magic Your Way Vacation Packages for 2018 should be announced in the early summer. keep an eye for an announcement in the Disney Parks Blog. In the meantime, feel free to come again to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have. See you real soon!
