    We are wanting to plan for Oct of 2021. Can I make a room reservation at the 499 day out mark and then when that packages are released change over to the package? We are wanting to make our reservation so we can make payments.

    Hi Melanie!! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your question makes my heart so happy! I'm so excited to see you planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation for October 2021! Fabulous!!

    You may book a room-only reservation 499 days in advance and once packages are released, you can upgrade to a package. You can call 407-560-CHAT (2428) to reserve your room at a non-guaranteed rate. At that time, you can also begin making payments toward your future Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Plus, if you have paid for your vacation in full, or you are almost finished paying and a new offer comes along, you can modify it to take advantage of the offer as long as it is available.

    Thank you so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You are so thorough with your planning and I love it! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical 2021 Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
