    When can I book a Disney vacation for January 2023?

    Hey howdy hey, Monica! You’ve got a friend in me at planDisney, so let’s get started!

    It’s never too soon to start thinking about your next Disneyland Resort getaway, that’s for sure! Currently, Disneyland Resort Hotel reservations and Vacation Packages are only available through December of 2022, and 2023 dates haven’t opened up just yet. I did some research, and discovered that Vacation Packages and Resort Hotel reservations tend to open for the following year by the end of summer, typically by the end of August. I recommend checking the website or checking back with us in June or July to see if we have any updates. 

    In the meantime, you and your Disney crew can start thinking about where you’d like to stay, and what you’d like to eat! My little Mouseketeers are obsessed with the Disneyland Hotel thanks to the thrilling monorail waterslides. Personally, I adore Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa thanks to its convenient access to Disney California Adventure Park, and the wonderful dining options. Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel is another great option, thanks to the gorgeous views of Disney California Adventure Park, especially at night – the lights are stunning!

    Now for one of my favorite topics – Disneyland Resort food! There are so many wonderful options for dining reservations, so I recommend checking out the menus ahead of time. Currently, dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance. Some of my favorite spots include Lamplight Lounge, Blue Bayou Restaurant, GCH Craftsman Grill, and Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park. My favorite quick-service option is Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe – their Toasted Cheese sandwich is delicious!

    As for theme park tickets and park reservations, you can start making theme park reservations up to 120 days in advance, subject to availability, so you have a little time to wait on booking those. You’ll be able to choose between a One Park Per Day ticket or a Park Hopper ticket. With the One Park Per Day option, you’ll select one theme park, and stay there the entire day, whereas with a Park Hopper, you’ll select one park to start in, and then “hop” to the other park any time after 1:00 PM. 
    If you have any other planning questions as your trip gets closer, please head back to planDisney, Monica… we’re all EARs!

    Happy planning!
