I’ve already had many readers ask when they should book their trips for next year, so I’m excited to share that Disney World packages 2025 can be booked now!

You can book package dates with check-in through October 2025.

Read on for details and four reasons you should consider booking your Disney World 2025 vacation package now.

What is a Disney World Vacation Package?

What exactly is a Disney World vacation package and how is it different from a room-only reservation?

Booking a Disney World package just means purchasing your room and tickets together in one package. 

You can also add a Dining Plan to your room-only reservation which qualifies it as a package. 

The main difference between a package and a room-only reservation is the cancellation policy

Currently, the period to cancel and get a full refund on a room-only reservation at a Disney World resort is up to five days before check-in. 

Note that this will change to eight days before check-in starting January 1st, 2025. 

When you book a package, you can get a full refund if you cancel up to 30 days before check-in. 

So packages come with a more stringent cancellation policy which is something to be aware of. 

Disney World Vacation Packages 2025: Get the best availability

Certain rooms at Disney World resorts are always in high demand. These include:

  • Affordable rooms that sleep five people
  • Rooms closest to amenities or with the best views (Preferred room categories)
  • The most in-demand resorts during peak travel times (eg Polynesian during Christmas, Boardwalk during Food & Wine Festival)

It’s a great idea to book as soon as possible to get the best availability and your pick of resorts for Disney World vacation packages in 2025.

I expect Value Resorts to be in especially high demand so be sure to book those as early as possible! Learn what to expect at the Disney Value Resorts in this post

I highly recommend booking any package with our expert Disney travel agent Siera with Destinations in Florida. She can handle all of the details of your trip at NO additional cost – you can get a free quote from her here

Siera can book your dining reservations and help you plan your days if needed. Or you can do it yourself and have someone always available to answer any questions you have.

Disney World Vacation Packages Have a New Perk

Beginning January 1st, 2025, guests with Disney World vacation packages get free entry to a Disney World Water park on their check-in day.

This is brand new perk that Disney has never offered before. 

It will be interesting to see how this affects attendance at Disney’s water parks Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. 

Get discounts automatically applied when they are released

Free Dining Packages = free cookies

Suppose Disney releases discounts on room-only reservations or packages (such as the uber-popular Free Dining Package) for your travel dates. In that case, Siera will automatically apply the discount that gives you the best price, thereby lowering your balance due.

Trust me, Disney will NOT automatically lower your balance due when you book directly with them!

You will have to monitor the discounts and call Disney to have a discount applied to your account if one becomes available.

You can relax and know that Siera will apply the best discount available to your package. 

Also please know that you can transfer your Disney World vacation to Siera if you have booked directly with Disney within the last 30 days and are not yet paid in full.

Your reservation will remain exactly as you originally booked it and you still have access to all of your planning through your My Disney Experience account.

You only have to pay a $200 deposit

Making a Disney World basic package reservation only requires a $200 deposit which is totally refundable up to 30 days before your trip.

There are no change or cancellation charges on a Disney World package up to 30 days before check-in. 

You can set up a Payment Plan on your Disney World Packages 2025

Some other advantages of booking your Disney World vacation now is that it gives you longer to save for and pay towards your vacation.

You can even set up a payment plan to work towards that balance when you book a package with Siera

You’ll have lots of time to set money aside and accumulate discounted Disney gift cards to pay off the balance on your trip!

Can I still book with her and keep the prices with my Disney Rewards if I start with booking using my Disney Chase card? I’ve accumulated over $2000 in Disney points and would like to put them all towards a trip for my 3 kids, myself and boyfriend for March or April of 2022. I don’t have a lot to spend but my son will be 18 next year and want to use the child price yet for him and go this year! We plan 5-6 days. Any tips on using my Chase card for this would be appreciated! Thanks!
