Moderate resort check in

    Sherri from MI Asked

    Can you please tell me how far in advance I can make resort reservations for a Disneyworld vacation? We're starting to plan an extended family trip in March or April of 2021 when the grandchildren are old enough to enjoy the trip :-).

    Hi, Sherri!

    Boy, you do like to plan ahead! I certainly can understand your excitement to take your grandkids to Walt Disney World. You are sure to have a magical time with them. 

    Room reservations can be made up to 499 days in advance, so you still have some time to plan. Packages for April, 2021, should be available mid-summer in 2020, so you have a few years to book anything. 

    In the meantime, start doing some research. Look into different resort options, tickets, parks, and attractions. Of course over the next 3+ years things can change a lot, so stay flexible with what your plans might be. What you can do is to start saving. Perhaps a special savings account, vacation jar where you toss in spare change, or even start purchasing Disney Gift Cards. It will be nice to have a good portion of your trip paid for when the magical travel dates get closer. 

    Have fun during your planning process, and feel free to stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel anytime if you have any questions.
