Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I know that hotel package rates are posted around Summer, but how far ahead can you actually BOOK them? I'm planning on going sometime in April of 2015, and I'd like to make the deposit as soon as possible. Thanks for your help!

- Hi, Ashley!
Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so glad to hear you’re ready to book your next vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort.
You can actually reserve accommodations at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel up to 499 days in advance by calling (407) W-DISNEY (934-7639). You can currently book rooms through the Walt Disney World website for check-in dates up to and including Dec. 31, 2014, but you must call to reserve dates in 2015 rather than book online. As of now, you’ll only be able to reserve a hotel room, not packages that include extras like park tickets or the Disney Dining Plan, for dates in 2015. You’d be reserving your room at the 2014 rates, but when the rates and package details for 2015 are released (typically in the late summer) your rate would automatically adjust to reflect the current prices. You can also make a room-only reservation to be converted into a vacation package after next year’s rates are announced.
I hope this helps, Ashley! Please visit us again with more questions as your pixie-dusted planning continues.
Wishing you magic,
