    When can I start booking hotels for January 2016?

    Hi Steph,

    We're so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  I have good news for you.  You can book a room-only reservation for January 2016 at any Disney Resort hotel as soon as you're ready!  The rule is that it must be at least 499 days before your planned check-out date, so you're well within that time frame now.  If you'd like to do that, just call (407) W-DISNEY (934-7639) and a Cast Member will take great care of you from there.  Keep in mind that 2016 rates and packages aren't yet available, so you're basically making the reservation to hold the specific room and dates you want for your vacation.  Once next year's details are released (probably July or August, based on what's happened in the past) you can call back to confirm final pricing and add on any items to make your room reservation a package, like theme park tickets and the Disney Dining Plan.

    I hope that helps, Steph, and wishing you pixie-dusted planning for your vacation!  Please write back if I can help answer any other questions.

    Have a magical day!
