    Hi there, We're planning a January 2018 WDW trip. When will online bookings become available for this date? We're hoping early enough that we can make our dining plans 180 days out! Thanks.

    Dear Sarah,

    Thanks so much for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your planning questions for 2018!

    The online reservations system is not yet open, you're right, but you can call 1(407)W-DISNEY up to 500 days in advance of your check-in date to book your hotel over the phone. Since your dates are well within that range, you can definitely call now if you'd like to start your planning.

    Don't worry, Walt Disney World Resort will have your dates open for booking Advanced Dining Reservations well in advance, so you won't miss that 180-day booking window!

    Have a magical time planning your upcoming trip!
