    How soon in advance can I book resort, park tickets, flight for 9/2017

    Hey, Kelly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Oooh... I see you are planning a big Walt Disney World Resort vacation for September of next year. September is a wonderful time to visit because of lower crowd levels and great weather.

    Great news! You may reserve a single night at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel 499 days in advance by calling the Walt Disney Travel Company reservations at 407-560-2428. Online reservations for 2017 will likely come out later this year but could be as early as July so keep watching.

    If you are looking for a Magic Your Way Vacation package then you will need to wait until those rates are released then easily convert your room-only reservation into a vacation package. The important part is to get that room-only reservation now so you have your date locked in.

    Airfare may only be booked when the airlines release their flight times. Your Disney Vacation travel specialist will be able to help you. 

    You may purchase tickets at any time. They will expire 14 days after first use. I would hold off on tickets until you have decided on a vacation package. It's best to bundle them together.

    Disney Dad Tip: Did you know that you can make dining reservations up to 180 days in advance either online or over the phone? Restaurants like Be Our Guest Restaurant book up quickly so making reservations is sound advice. Take some time to look at all your dining options and get a plan for each day. As Scar from Disney's The Lion King says, "Be Prepared!."

    Kelly, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
