    Question 2009 Dates

    Does anyone know when the WDW reservation system will open for dates in 2009? I know packages typically don't post until the last quarter of the year prior but just curious how soon until dates into 2009 will pop open.

    I was always told August. Not sure why Disney does that because they know people plan at least a year ahead to go on vacation.

    I e-mailed that question to WDW guest mail a few weeks ago and they replied that the 2009 packages have not been announced yet and to "check back in the summer of 2008 for updated information"

    1986-Polynesian
    1991-Caribbean Beach
    1992-off site

    Yeah those are the packages and they are always like late August but I know last year they opened up dates for booking (without a package - just a room) prior to that.

    When I called to book for 2009, I was told that you are allowed to book, room only, 499 days prior to your check-out date.

    So, if I need to book a package for January of 09, then I need to wait until the rates come out in August? If this is the case, then what about the 180 day ADRs, would I still be able to make those without vacation dates already booked?

    If you want a "package" you have to wait for August yeah (I think it stinks too). You can make ADRs without vacation dates though. You don't have to be staying on property or using any sort of package to make an ADR.

    It is suggested that you go ahead and book your room(paying a one night's deposit at that time), then when the package rates come out, you can change it but you will have your hotel reservation saved.

    Thanks, I think I will book my room as soon as possible and then take care of the rest of the stuff in August.
