    When will 2023 be available to purchase resort and park tickets?

    Hi Whitney! Welcome back to planDisney! 

    There is nothing like having a Walt Disney World Resort vacation on the books! As a planner myself, I always love to open the My Disney Experience App and see my future plans! February is the best time of year to visit Walt Disney World. The weather is typically perfect and crowds tend to be favorable. Nothing beats being able to leisurely explore the theme parks without having to deal with the heat from a Florida summer.  

    I anticipate vacation packages will be available sometime at the beginning of summer for 2023 bookings. Based on previous years, this tended to be the timeframe when Disney prefers to release these reservations. Since you plan to arrive in February 2023, this will still allow you about 7-8 months to book your stay in advance of your trip dates. This is the perfect time to decide on which resort you plan on staying in and how many park days you anticipate needing. With all of the additions that have recently been added to the parks and the new experiences that are coming in 2022, you will have a ton of planning to decide on. 

    The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration will still be underway when you arrive. I plan on visiting in just a few weeks and cannot wait to see the theme parks decked out for the celebration! The Magic Kingdom Park just introduced nine new snacks and treats that should be around for most of the celebration. There is a cinnamon roll that can be found at the Main Street Bakery that has my name written all over it!

    Whitney, I did want to mention that you have the option to book a room-only reservation up to 499 days in advance of your stay. If you have decided on the resort, you can make these reservations at any time. To do so, you will need to call the Walt Disney World Resort line and speak to a Cast Member for assistance. Once the vacation packages become available, you have the option to add theme park tickets and create a custom package. Again, to do this option, you will need to call back and speak with a Cast Member.

    I hope this information is helpful when you decide to book your 2023 stay! Have a magical time, Whitney!
