    What is the best way to start planning a Disney vacation? How far in advance can you book the resorts?

    Hi Barbara! Welcome to planDisney!

    Just the thought of planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is exciting, so when you actually set those plans in stone I'm sure you and your family will be ecstatic! I feel like I'm always planning my next trip, even when I haven't even made one reservation yet.  Because there are always so many new things popping up around the Resort there's always something to look forward to.  We're planning to have a rootin'-tootin' good time at the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue on our next family vacation! While this fabulous show has been around for years, it is just reopening on June 23, 2022 after a long hiatus.  Even though I've been to the Resort dozens of times this will be a new dining and entertainment experience for us!

    Barbara, you're asking about booking a spring vacation at an absolutely perfect time! The Disney Parks Blog recently announced that Guests will be able to start booking their vacation plans for 2023 on June 8, 2022, just two days away!  If you've recently visited the Walt Disney World Resort website and searched for vacation packages you've probably noticed that the booking calendar was only open through December 31, 2022.  Starting June 8, 2022 the calendar will be open to check out vacation packages, Theme Park Tickets, and Disney Resorts Collection hotel prices for the next calendar year. 

    For future reference, Disney Resorts Collection hotels can also be booked up to 499 days in advance of your check-in date by calling and speaking with a Cast Member at the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line at (407) 939-1936.  This would be a "Room Only" reservation, meaning you could add your Theme Park Tickets later or change your reservation to a vacation package when they become available.  You're also welcome to call this line if you have any other specific questions while you're making your reservations.

    Happy planning, Barbara.  I hope you and your family have a memorable and magical vacation!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
