    Any update as to when Room reservations will open up for December 2025

    Hi Rob,

    I am also anxiously awaiting the ability to make reservations for December of 2025. The holiday season is the best time to visit Disney World because of the decorations, events, and special food offerings available only during this magical time.

    Resort hotel reservations are currently open through October 2025. This is actually much further out than is normally available at this time. There is no official word on when the last two months of 2025 will open for booking. In past years, reservations would open up for Disney World resort hotels for the entire next year in the summer or early fall of the current year. I would expect to see something in the next few months on the Disney Parks Blog. This is not guaranteed and is based simply on past experiences.

    Since you are visiting during the most magical time of the year, make sure you plan to check out some of the epic events that will be going on. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is not to be missed! It features delicious themed snacks, a spirited parade that ends with none other than Santa Claus, and snow falls from the sky as you walk down Main Street at the end of the night! 

    The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is one of the most unique events at Disney World. I love that you can experience how people all around the world celebrate the holidays by trying their unique foods, listening to carolers, and stopping by for an epic storytelling experience. The best part of this event is the Candlelight Processional led by a celebrity narrator. This is such a moving and emotional retelling of the Christmas story. Dining packages are available closer to the time of your visit and offer guaranteed seating for the spectacular along with dinner. 

    Happy Planning,
