Does this mean that I can book for anytime in 2018? Not exactly. Disney will not let guests book any further out than 499 days. This means that those looking to travel in late 2018 may have to wait a bit longer before you are able to secure your reservations. Also, for those looking to stay at one of Walt Disney World’s Deluxe Villa properties, Disney often times releases availability a bit closer to travel dates which also may mean a wait for those looking to book a villa during the 2nd half of 2018.
Will I be able to get a discount when packages go on sale? When Disney initially releases 2018 packages, these will be at the non-discounted or “rack rate.” Disney doesn’t usually release discounts until closer to your actual departure dates. However, with flexible booking policies (contact me to find out more), guests do have the ability to nab a discount even after you’ve booked so you will still be able to take advantage of savings if booking early.
When are the best dates to visit in 2018? For many Disney travelers, visiting during peak periods (including Summer, Christmas or public holidays) is an absolute necessity. However, for those that have a bit of flexibility, there are certain times during the year that are better than others when it comes to lower crowds, better discounts and lower temperatures. Here’s a quick rundown on dates worth considering in 2018.
