2019 Walt Disney World Vacations Available

2019 Walt Disney World rooms and packages are now available for booking!  From the initial release, rooms are only available 499 in advance.  By August 19, 2018 all 2019 Walt Disney World hotel rooms will be available to book.

2019 is my vote for calm before the storm.  It’s the year to go!  Star Wars Galaxy Edge will open at the end of the year, so most of 2019 will be your last opportunity to go before that new land changes crowd patterns at the resort.

The change made for 2018 to the dining plan drink options will remain for 2019.

It’s ideal to book 6 months or more in advance for best hotel availability, so now is the perfect time to start planning your next Disney vacation!

Ticket Price Change

Admission prices for Walt Disney World and Disneyland were adjusted on Sunday, February 11, 2018.  This price change takes effect immediately for stand-alone ticket purchases.

Ticket prices will be updated on vacation packages by February 21, 2018.  Right now is the perfect time to jump on booking your 2018 Disney vacation package.  By booking before the package ticket price change, you lock in your ticket prices!  If you make a change to your tickets after booking, your ticket prices take on prices at the time the change is made.

Booking your 2018 Walt Disney World package early can be one of the best ways to save money on your trip.  The earlier you book, the more hotels and room types there are to choose from.  The closer to your travel dates you book, the more likely your preferred hotel and room choices will be sold out.

Book 2018 Walt Disney World Vacations

2018 Walt Disney World rooms and packages are now available for booking!  From the initial release, rooms are only available 499 in advance.  By August 19, 2017 all 2018 Walt Disney World hotel rooms will be available to book.

There are some changes to the Magical Extras included with Magic Your Way Packages.  Changes to these discounts are normal.

The big news for 2018 packages is a change to all Dining Plans.  New for 2018, your beverage credit at quick service and table service meals may be redeemed for alcoholic drinks (age 21 and over, photo ID required, where available.)  Here are the new options for meal beverage redemption-

  • Soda
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Hot chocolate
  • Smoothie
  • Milkshake
  • Beer or cider*
  • Wine or sangria*
  • Mixed drinks*
    *Must be 21 and over, photo ID required

Note that these new drinks options are only for meal credits.  You cannot redeem a snack credit for an alcoholic beverage.  Redeeming your meal drink for an alcoholic beverage results in 1 single serving drink.

One change that is not unique to 2018, but will affect all 2018 packages, is the new ticket structure.  Ticket add-on options have been streamlined, allowing you to select Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus.  The new Park Hopper Plus ticket includes admissions to Disney’s two water parks.

Another prior change that continues for 2018 is that 1-Day theme park tickets cannot be included in a Magic Your Way Package.  If you need only a 1-Day ticket you will buy your ticket separately from your room accommodations.

Memory Maker can currently be added with an advance purchase discount at $169.  Adding Memory Maker to your package is a great way to lock in the price while benefiting from package payment policies.  Memory Maker that is added within 3 days of usage is priced at $199.  Memory Maker allows you to download all of your Photopass photos, including on-ride photos!

We’re ready and waiting to send you a free, no-obligation quote for your 2018 Walt Disney World vacation!  It’s ideal to book 6 months or more in advance for best hotel availability, so now is the perfect time to start planning your next Disney vacation!
