How far in advance do you start planning?

Hi everyone!

I've booked to stay at the Beach Club for next year & I'm thinking that it's too early to start planning? When do you all tend to start the planning process? Where you're going to eat, what days you'll attend what park etc... Really keen to start! 🤗

Never to early to start a list of where you might want to eat

We go in November and apart from flights and Villa which we just booked last month, that is it so far.

Probably not until the adr window opens as I don't see the point in making lists that I'll probably change half a dozen times before then . I do read up though on new restaurants etc..

If you are talking Disney then its probably 12 months. If its a road trip such as our upcoming Yellowstone trip then that started 3 years ago! To get the accommodation in the National Park you had to book 20 months in advance!

It really depends on when you want to go. If it's during a holiday season, then you really need to sort things out early or you could be disappointed. Outside of those times then, of course, you can be a little more laid back about it.
I've got bookings for 2017 that were booked early last year!

I think 1 -2 years would have a large number. I would be in that category.

11 Months for us as thats when the flights come online and also when we can book DVC.

However going 3 times a year we are planning constantly. Have to say one of our best trips (8 Nights) was booked with 2 weeks notice!

Hmmm, depends on the definition of planning. I buy flights 11 months before, so check prices/routes in the couple of weeks before that. Route plan and accommodation is booked about 4 months before we go, and nothing else is set in stone, but I will admit to a rather extensive restaurant list on trip advisor!
