    When is the best time to plan travel for 2023?

    Greetings, and welcome to planDisney, Anissa, we thank you for your excellent question!

    Planning a vacation to the Disneyland Resort is always so exciting and in my opinion, the best way to enjoy such a magical vacation is from the lap of a Disneyland Resort Hotel to enjoy a complete vacation package including theme park tickets and unique amenities, especially the convenience of proximity to the theme parks and the Downtown Disney District! Did you know that Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa offers direct access to its Guests who have valid theme park admission and a Disneyland Resort - Theme Park Reservation? I can't tell you how much my family enjoyed this amenity during our stay at this spectacular Resort hotel!

    Anissa, you will be able to book your Disneyland Resort vacation package from approximately 4 to 5 months in advance of your intended visit, keeping in mind any Disneyland Resort special events and activities at the time which may interest you. During your vacation package booking when selecting your theme park tickets, please consider adding the theme park ticket option called the Disney Genie+ service which will save you time waiting in lines for attractions that offer the Lightning Lane entrance. If you don't add this option during your theme park ticket purchase, you can always opt into the service just after you have entered a reserved theme park using the Disneyland Mobile App.

    Once your Disneyland Resort vacation package is booked, kindly proceed to link your vacation package to your Disney account via My Hotel Reservation under the My Disneyland planning area using the reservation confirmation number. Because your theme park tickets will be tied to your Disneyland Resort Hotel reservation once you link the reservation you will have access to securing your Disneyland Resort - Theme Park Reservations, which you should complete right away as this is the method of visiting the theme parks at this time. A Disneyland Resort theme park ticket alone does not enable access to a theme park nowadays, Guests need a Theme Park Reservation as well (subject to change).

    Of importance, once you link your Disneyland Resort vacation package you will complete a crucial step in facilitating the electronic delivery of your Travel ePackage to your Disney account, 4-days before your arrival. Your Travel ePackage will contain your Disneyland Resort theme park tickets, travel itinerary and Magical Extras voucher which you can print out in advance of your arrival.

    Download the Disneyland Mobile App to manage your plans before and during your visit, once you explore the app features you will discover what a handy tool this is.

    Anissa, I hope this information is helpful, please stop by planDisney with any further planning, thank you so much!
