    Hi Judy!

    It is exciting to be planning a trip to Walt Disney World!  By calling Disney, you can reserve a hotel room up to 499 days in advance of your intended check out date.  However, you can not make an on-line reservation until the actual 2013 pricing has been released.  Historically, rates are released in mid to late summer for the upcoming year.  If you call now, what Disney does is charge you for a  single night's rate based on this year and then automatically adjusts your rate when the 2013 pricing comes out.

    Packages can only be booked once the 2013 rates are released.  However, you can easily convert a room only reservation to a package by simply calling.  Also, if any applicable discounts come out between now and then, you can call and try to have those applied to your reservation; there are usually limited numbers and conditions so not all discount codes will apply.   

    With regards to a room request, I recommend stating exactly what you need as opposed to a specific building and room number.  That will increase the possibility of you getting what you need as it gives Disney some flexibility in meeting your request.

    Thank you so much for the compliment on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  All of us enjoy helping guests plan their magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
