PSA: Watch Out For Travel Agents Tempting You To Book Disney For 2025
Watch out for travel agents who try to tempt you into booking Disney too early.
There is a fantastic offer for 2024 Walt Disney World stays which includes up to 4 FREE nights and a $200 Disney gift card on select two-week stays. However, I know that many of you love to plan even further ahead (we've had people even ask us when 2027 can be booked) and the answer is you can only book dates that are listed on the Walt Disney World Disney Holidays website. At the time of writing, you can book through December 2024. There are some travel agents out there that pray on your excitement to get booked and start your countdown before Disney hotels actually go on sale. (Keep in mind this does not apply to off-site hotels, as these can go on sale up to a couple of years in advance.) Also most airlines only release flights up to 11 months before travel.
We've had so many readers tell us how they've booked too far ahead only to be told the price has gone up when Disney hotels do finally go on sale, sometimes substantially. Travel agents tend to guess what your holiday will cost and then adjust when they actually get the official prices, and because most deposits are non-refundable, some people are left with unfavourable outcomes.
Mickey From The UK was started to help Brits have the best possible time at Disney Parks, and you don't want to start planning process on a bad note, as eager as you might be to start your countdown!
While the majority of people should book their Walt Disney World package directly through Disney, even If you decide to use a travel agent, make sure the dates you want are available on the Disney Holidays website first.
Of course, we will let you know as soon as any other bookable dates open up so make sure you follow us on Facebook, Instagram, X, or Threads, and signup to our Mickey From The UK email club.
