2021 vacation packages are released! Here’s what you need to know

Beginning today, guests can now book vacation packages for Walt Disney World® Resort for the dates of Jan. 1-Sept. 26, 2021.  Guests wanting to book after Sept. 26, 2021 will be able to do so at a later date.

What are packages?

All new packages begin Jan. 1, 2021. The biggest significance is that those who either had no reservation, or had a room-only reservation can now begin packages that include their 1-14-night hotel reservation, tickets, and guests who have been looking forward to a 2021 Disney vacation can now begin to book their entire trip. Packages typically include your room and ticket, along with options for dining plans and special discounts, called magical extras. All guests will be sent a complementary keepsake luggage tag.

Though adjustments have been made in regards to their availability in 2020, the Park Hopper® option, Park Hopper® Plus option and Water Park and Sports option is available for 2021.

Guests who book resorts and tickets for 2021 must still make a theme park reservation for the time being. Guests should book park tickets as soon as they are purchased and linked with the My Disney Experience app.
