How soon should I book?

Ok, so title says it all. We've never been to WDW, only DLR, and I know I am ok booking a couple months out here & still get what I want, generally. (For example, I booked GCH on Sunday for week prior to Thanksgiving).

I know resort & time of year will determine when I should book. We are looking at AKL for May 1-4 ( for EE5k), and then returning end of Sept. for our 'real' vacation. We will book both YC & CR. the reason is, idk yet if we will be able to take our DCL just yet, if we do, we are keeping CR, if not, we will keep YC.

Thank you for your tips!!

Since you know your dates and know which resorts you want, I'd book now to make sure you get what you want as you can always cancel or make changes later on. Sometimes you can book WDW close to your arrival and get exactly what you want, and sometimes that's not possible. If it were me, I'd book now and make changes later if it turns out you are able to take the cruise. Good luck.

I would love to book now, but I just booked one 2 days ago, and can't book 4 at the same time. My DBF would choke me!! Lol.
