    What is the soonest we can start making plans for WDW 50th. I know it will be busy, We want to visit the parks for Christmas Season 2021. Looking forward to all the new attractions.

    Hello Frank, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great planning question.

    I am so excited to hear that you are planning to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary with us in 2021. I am sure the celebration will be amazing. My experience with past celebrations is that they will last for the entire year, giving guests the opportunity to celebrate such a magical place. I cannot wait to hEar what is in store for this golden anniversary celebration.

    I have been researching when I can plan my family’s celebration too. I have found out that you will be able to make reservations at a Disney Resort Hotel 499 days prior to your check out date. I am not sure of when you plan to check out, but let’s say you are planning to stay through December 26, 2021. You would be able to make your room reservations on August 14, 2020. Just about 2 years from now. Keep in mind that policies are subject to change, so that time frame could become narrower. I would suggest that you keep your ears open and tuned into the Disney Parks Blog for celebrations updates and announcements. In the meantime, if you have any other questions please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
