    Wanting to plan a vacation in December of 2018. How far in advance am I able to start booking?

    Hi Rebecca!

    How much fun that you are planning at Walt Disney World vacation for the holiday season next year! I also like to plan way in advance, so I can completely understand your desire to get a head start. 

    You can actually book your 2018 Walt Disney World room reservation 499 days in advance by calling (407) 939-1936.

    If you'd like to book online, you'll need to wait until the 2018 pricing is released. The pricing is typically released in June for the following year, so it should be any day now! 

    December is a great time of year to visit. You can get a jump on planning by checking out some of the amazing holiday offerings, such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom, the Candlelight Processional at Epcot and the gingerbread houses on display at many of the resorts, including Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    Happy planning!
