    Can I book February 2023 hotel reservations via phone now and upgrade to a package when these are available late Spring/Summer? If so, is there any downside to booking hotel room only now

    Welcome to planDisney Kari!

    Planning ahead for a 2023 vacation sounds, really great! I booked a fall 2022 Disney Cruise about a year ago, and it is fun that it is finally starting to feel within reach. I can feel those ocean waves already!

    To book a Walt Disney World vacation into 2023, you are absolutely correct, you will need to call to secure your room. Once prices are posted (late spring/early summer 2022) you can call to convert your Disney Resort Room Only reservation into a Vacation Package which will include your Theme Park Tickets. You can also leave your Room Only reservation "as is" and add on your Theme Park Tickets separately. 

    The downside of booking this is that you will not receive the exact price of your room until 2023 prices are posted. It is not a huge deal, as you can always cancel once you get the price if it does not fit your budget. The other downside is sometimes wait times on the phone can be long, so you will need to go through that. But otherwise, go ahead and book and let the magical countdown begin!

    While you are counting the days until you visit Mickey Mouse, browse to get ideas on attractions you want to experience and restaurants you want Dining Reservations for. We can't wait to see you real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
