    Hi Bernie! We just arrived back from our 4th trip in as many years! Thanks for your valuable answers prior to our last trip. We are thinking about going again in 2014. How soon can we reserve? TY!

    Hi Tim!

    Thank you for sending me this question directly.  I really appreciate it!

    By calling Disney, you can reserve a hotel room up to 499 days in advance of your intended check out date.  However, you can not make an on-line reservation until the actual 2014 pricing has been released.  Historically, rates are released in mid to late summer for the upcoming year.  If you call at the 499 days out mark, what Disney does is charge you for a  single night's rate based on this year and then automatically adjusts your rate when the 2014 pricing comes out.

    Packages can only be booked once the 2014 rates are released.  However, you can easily convert a room only reservation to a package by simply calling.  Also, if any applicable discounts come out between now and then, you can call and try to have those applied to your reservation; there are usually limited numbers and conditions so not all discount codes will apply.

    Enjoy planning another magical Disney vacation, and please write back with more questions!
