    Hi, we want to book for Xmas 2023 with a return on 2nd January - we were told to wait 330 days before our departure date but this is still not showing online. Could you advise when we will be able to book online? Thank you! :)

    Ho, ho, ho, Charlotte!

    I’m so glad you brought your question to us here at planDisney. How exciting to be planning a jolly holiday vacation at Walt Disney World Resort! Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year to visit for sure.

    Charlotte, when I check the Walt Disney World website and select the calendar icon on the Build Your Vacation option (near the top of the page), I see that initially, the January 2024 calendar does not appear to be available. However, when you select December 25 as the start date of your vacation, the January calendar populates through January 25. So, I encourage you to try again and select the December start date you desire and then you should be able to select an ending date in January. Hopefully, with this little tip, you will wrap up your reservation for a magical holiday vacation!

    Now, I do see that the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort page asks you to check back later for details regarding the specific offerings that will be available in 2023. In the meantime, Charlotte, I can tell you that Christmas magic is in the air and everywhere, including every Disney Resort Hotel, all four theme parks, and Disney Springs. Two of my must-dos are EPCOT’s International Festival of the HolidaysCandlelight Processional with an amazing narrated and musical telling of the Christmas story.  And you won’t want to miss Magic Kingdom’s special ticketed event, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party which is filled with all sorts of holiday cheer.  So, keep an eye out on the Walt Disney World website and the Disney Parks Blog since they will be the first to share yuletide updates.

    Charlotte, you’ll be seeing snow on Main Street, U.S.A before you know it! While you are planning your holiday adventure, I hope you will come back by and allow me to assist you with any questions you may have! 

    Wishing you many merry and magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
