    I am trying to plan our 2018 trip to WDW for Christmas and every resort I see there is no rooms available can you please explain what I'm doing wrong

    Hi Donna,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting to plan a Walt Disney World Resort vacation for the holiday season! 

    Let me reassure you that you are not doing anything wrong! Packages have not yet been released for those dates. Guests can book a Walt Disney World Resort vacation up to 499 days in advance. To do so prior to packages being released online, you will need to call 407-939-1936 to speak with a cast member and book a room-only resort hotel stay. Once you book the room, you just need to call back when vacation packages are released for your dates to request a package rate. 

    You are just a little early with checking on your pricing. Yes, I know, how can it ever be too early to book a Walt Disney World Resort vacation? 

    When I checked online today, it looked like packages are available up through early November of 2018. Based on your arrival dates, I suggest that you check again by early August. In the meantime, check the prices for this December to get an idea of how to budget for next year's trip. Months before I am planning to book a trip, I typically check the Special Offers page every week to see what new offers have been released. 

    Donna, I hope you have considered enjoying some of the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort events. Two of my favorite experiences are Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and the Candlelight Processional. The shimmer of the lights from Cinderella's castle light the park with joy!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
