    Can I reserve a room for January 2-6, 2018?

    Hello Sharon!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My wife and I participated in the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in early January 2017 and will be doing so again for 2018.  

    When booking our Walt Disney World Resort hotel for January 2017, I waited for the reservation window to open (it happened to be July 2016) for the Walt Disney World website to book my reservations.  I was still able to reserve the room that I wanted, but early January is a busy time at Walt Disney World Resort and options were limited.

    This year, I called a Cast Member at (407)939-1936 in February and booked my hotel reservations for January 2018 immediately.

    Walt Disney World Reservations are available to Guests up to 499 days in advance!  The only exception to this policy is that reservations must be made by phone with a Disney Cast Member.  Regardless of when you initially book your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can retroactively attempt to apply a Special Offer when it becomes available through your My Disney Experience Account or by speaking with a Cast Member at (407)939-1936.

    You should know that Special Offers (when provided) are limited and not applicable for all Resort Hotels or rooms.  In the past, I have Modified My Reservations by switching Walt Disney World Resorts to take advantage of a Special Offer.

    Happy Planning!
