    Hi I was wondering when is the best time to book for disney packages? as im looking in going around may 2013.

    Hi there, Sandra!

    The question isn't necessarily "when" but "with whom." Working with The Walt Disney Travel Company or a licensed Disney reseller is the way to go; with either of these options, if/when packages become available, there is usually a way to get you that package or better rate or new deal.

    Right now, you're only able to book full-on packages through the end of 2012. Reservations can be made for Resort rooms only 599 days in advance of your first night; packages can be added to those rooms later (again, only working with authorized Disney travel planners).

    So it's really up to you. If there is a particular Resort you want to stay in and do not want to risk it selling out, go ahead and book the room now; if not, you can keep an eye on the specials rolling out months in advance.

    But make sure you work with a provider who is a Disney specialist. That will ensure you the freedom to make the changes you want, when you want to make them.

    Happy planning!

    See you later, celebrator,
