Family planning a trip

    When can I start planning a Disney World trip for January of 2022? Is it true you can't make reservations until the summer before the year you are planning on going? I've never planned a Disney trip before and want to start as early as possible.

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your vacation planning question, Ellen! I believe that it is never too early to start planning for your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. The planning process can be so much fun as you choose your Disney Resort hotel or Disney Vacation Club Resort. I am pleased to inform you that you can make a room-only reservation as far as 499 days in advance, so, you are already within your booking window! Choosing your Disney Resort hotel or Disney Vacation Club Resort is a great way to start the vacation planning process, as each resort has something special and unique to offer; from budget-friendly campgrounds and Value Resort hotels to luxurious Deluxe Villas you are sure to find something that will be perfect for you and your travel party. 

    I think it is a great idea to book your resort reservation as far in advance as possible as you can later upgrade to a vacation package to include flights and park tickets when those vacation package options have been released. You can also keep any eye out for any special offers that arise and if an offer becomes available that includes the location and dates of your travel, you can call (407) 939-5277 and speak with a Cast Member to apply the special offer to your existing reservation. 

    I hope that this information helps to get you started on planning your visit to Walt Disney World next January! Remember that we are always here to help at planDisney, so please stop back by with any questions you may have during your vacation planning process.
