As someone who just returned from a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth, I’m already thinking about next year—and apparently, so is Disney. Type-A planners who want to book their reservations as early as possible will be happy to hear that you can start working on those 2025 vacations right now.

In addition to hotels and park tickets being available for booking, Disney World has also announced some enticing new offers in store for 2025. Let’s dig into the details.

ULTIMATE GUIDE: Everything You Need to Know about Disney Genie and Genie+ 

Disney World 2025 Vacation Packages Available Now

You can book your 2025 Disney World vacation starting right now! Both resort stays and theme park tickets are available for purchase, meaning you can start planning next year’s trip, whether you need a room-only reservation or a full-fledged vacation package that includes both a room and tickets.

Speaking of tickets, it is worth noting that admission will cost a little more in 2025. The base price of tickets is once again rising, this time on an average of $5 to $10 per day. This includes the lowest-price ticket, which used to start at $109 but will now start at $119 in 2025. These price increases are effective as of February 27, 2024, for all 2025 park tickets (note that the price of 2024 park tickets has not changed). So, if you’re looking to book a 2025 vacation today, keep in mind that you will need to pay those new ticket prices.

Also keep in mind that not all of 2025 is currently available for booking. As of February 2024, you can only book out through October 2025. If you want to plan a holiday season trip to Disney World, you’ll have to wait for now.

New Water Park Perk for Resort Guests

Sometimes it’s difficult to decide what to do on your first vacation day. Do you try to squeeze in a day in a theme park, or do you lay low and grab dinner at Disney Springs? In 2025, Disney World wants to make that decision a little easier.

The most intriguing component of a 2025 Disney World vacation is an all-new perk for guests of Disney World’s hotels in Orlando. Starting in 2025, those who stay at a Disney World resort hotel will have complimentary admission to one of Disney’s water parks, Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach, on their check-in day. This perk is available for stays that begin on or after January 1, 2025.

Other benefits offered to on-site guests are returning in 2025 as well. This includes Early Theme Park Entry for all Disney World resort guests and Extended Evening Hours for those staying at Disney World Deluxe and Deluxe Villa resorts.

What’s Coming to Walt Disney World in 2024 and 2025

In addition to the complimentary water park benefit for on-site guests, there’s a lot to look forward to at Walt Disney World in 2025. Guests will be able to enjoy new attractions like Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, opening in summer 2024. Also scheduled for a 2024 opening is a brand-new Disney Vacation Club tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. This will give DVC members and non-members alike more accommodation options when booking those 2025 vacations.

On the horizon for 2025 and beyond are several projects announced last year at Destination D23. A few key highlights to be on the lookout for include a revamp of the fan-favorite EPCOT attraction Test Track, a Pirates of the Caribbean-themed tavern in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom, and a new show in the Tree of Life inspired by the animated film Zootopia. These don’t have definite timelines right now, but they could play a role in your 2025 Disney World vacation. I expect to hear more updates at the Disney fan event, D23 Expo, taking place this summer.
