    When will Animal Kingdom Lodge open up reservations for 2023?

    Jambo, Christine!

    I'm so glad you brought your question to planDisney.  Can I tell you how much I love Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge?  Each and every time I walk through those doors the beautiful details and immersive feel makes me feel like I've stepped right into the heart of the African savannah.  Combined with a huge selection of dining options and tons of Resort activities (not to mention all those animals right outside your door!), this Resort is definitely one of my favorite Disney Resorts Collection hotels.  How exciting that you're already planning a visit to this incredible Resort for 2023 –– you're in for a wild time!

    I think I've got some news you'll be happy to hear –– while you don't have the option to book online reservations yet, Disney Resorts Collection hotels and campgrounds can be booked up to 499 days in advance over the phone.  That means you can currently book reservations for Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge through the early part of September 2023.  Since it looks like you plan to travel right after the New Year, you'll be able to make your hotel reservation whenever you're ready by calling Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936.  Just note that room and ticket packages for 2023 haven't been released yet, so you'll need to make a room-only reservation at this time.  Don't worry, though –– if you'd like to upgrade to a package or take advantage of special offers that pop up, you'll be able to do so once those become available at a later date.  For updates on special offers and other news around Walt Disney World Resort, be sure to keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog for all the latest details.

    Thanks for visiting planDisney, Christine. If you think of new planning questions as your vacation gets closer, I hope you'll stop by again –– we're always happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
