    How far in advance can I book a room on site? Which Value hotels would you recommend for grandparents bringing a 5 year old grandson? What are Magic Bands?

    Hi Janet,

    Walt Disney World Resort room-only accommodations can be reserved up to 499 days in advance of your intended checkout date. If you are looking to book a room-only reservation, go ahead and contact Disney today. They will charge you for a single night based on this year's rate, and then automatically adjust your reservation once the 2017 pricing is released. Rates are usually released during the summer, so you can expect the 2017 Magic Your Way Vacation Packages prices to come out sometime this summer.

    I would highly recommend Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Their whimsically themed Family Suites can accommodate up to 6 people! Each one includes the following amenities: a bedroom with one queen-size bed; one double-size convertible TableBed; one double-size sleeper sofa; living room; 2 bathrooms and a kitchenette! This value resort has the largest resort pool in Walt Disney World Resort, The Big Blue Pool. It features a truly “immersive” experience with zero entry access, and underwater speakers that play Disney songs!

    MagicBands are colorful all-in-one wristband-devices that effortlessly link ALL vacation components through your My Disney Experience account.

    Disney Mom Tip: Be sure to check out the Grandparents Vacationing Guide. You'll be very glad you did!
