    When will I be able to make reservations for May 2016? I am hoping to stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge, hopefully to see lots of animals.

    Jambo Mary!

    How exciting that you're thinking ahead to your 2016 Walt Disney World vacation!  Animal Kingdom Lodge is absolutely spectacular.  My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary there and fell in love with the authentic African art and architecture, gorgeous savannah landscapes, up-close views of all kinds of wildlife (including giraffes that would sleep on the savannah right outside our room each night!) and amazing dining options.  It's definitely a great choice for your trip.

    I haven't heard a specific date when 2016 rates and package details will be announced, but usually that happens in late summer (July or August).  Just keep an eye on the Walt Disney World website for updated information to be posted.  In the meantime, if you'd like to go ahead and make a room-only reservation, you can do that up to 499 days in advance by calling (407) W-DISNEY (934-7639).  Once those rates and package details are released, you can then call back for updated pricing and to add on extra magic, like theme park tickets, the Disney Dining Plan and Memory Maker.

    Wishing you pixie-dusted planning, Mary!  Please visit us here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel again if we can help answer any other questions.

    Have a magical day!
