    Do you know if WDW is taking vacation reservations for Christmas 2013 yet? We can't afford to go next year since we just got back, but are planning for Christmas 2013.

    Hi Francine!

    Christmas is a beautiful time to visit Walt Disney World.  The parks and resorts will be decorated for the holidays.  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 2013 pricing has been released.  Historically, rates are released in mid to late summer for the upcoming year.  If you call within the 499 day window, what Disney does is charge you for a  single night's rate based on the current year pricing and then automatically adjusts your rate when the 2013 pricing comes out.

    Packages can only be booked once the 2013 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.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
