    Bonnie from LA Asked

    I just returned from Disney llast month. I want to make my reservations for next yr. How early can I make my resercvatios for Apr/May 2012? And when will the free dining plan be offered for 2012. I definately want that again.

    Hi Bonnie!

    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 2012 pricing has been released.  Historically, rates are released in mid to late summer for the upcoming year.  If you call now, what Disney does is charge you for a  single night's rate based on this year and then automatically adjusts your rate when the 2012 pricing comes out.

    Packages can only be booked once the 2012 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.  Also, you can only use one discount at any given time.  There's no guarantee that "Free Dining" will be offered again next year!

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
