    hi, weve never been but want to plan to go in May 2017, will we still be able to book in Feb-17 and still get some good deals, or should we book when dates are released? family of 5.

    Hello, Shonna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    First of all...WOO HOO!  I am so excited you are planning your very first Walt Disney World vacation!  Your family is going to have an UNFORGETTABLE time!

    You can certainly wait until February 2017 to book your vacation. However, you run the risk of not booking your favorite Disney Resort, and you will be late in the game to book your Disney Dining and FastPass+ reservations.  Did you know you can book your Disney Resort NOW for 2017?  Well, you CAN!  My recommendation would be to call (407) W-DISNEY soon to book your Disney Resort only reservation. Once you have your dates and Disney Resort secured, then check the Disney Special Offers webpage starting in the fall to find out what MAGICAL package deals are available during your vacation time frame. You can then modify your reservation to the Special Offer at no additional cost!  How cool is that?!

    If you have other questions, please let us know!  We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
