    Hi we just booked Animal Kingdom for January 8-13. When can I expect to be able to make dining reservations, park reservations and buy tickets? AND where do I make these reservations please?

    Hey there, Pam, and welcome to planDisney! It’s never too early to plan your next Walt Disney World Vacation! And you surely know how to start the new year off right! But how will you top starting your 2023 with a visit to Walt Disney World Resort? 

    Pam, Walt Disney World has not yet released 2023 Ticket Prices and Vacation Packages, and we are unsure when these will become available for Guests to book. This information has historically been released during the summer months, so I anticipate an announcement soon. Be sure to keep an eye out on the Disney Parks Blog. The blog is the perfect place to catch all of the breaking news, and trust me — the release of 2023 vacation packages will definitely make breaking news! Since you have already booked your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel reservation, you will need to speak with a Cast Member to add Theme Park Tickets to your reservation once they are released. With Theme Park Tickets secured, you’ll be clear to secure your Disney Park Pass Reservations

    Currently, your dining reservation window opens 60 days before your Walt Disney World arrival date. With an arrival date of January 8, 2023, your dining reservation window begins on November 9, 2022, at 5:45 a.m. EST. Since you are staying in a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can make dining reservations for your entire vacation when your window opens. Your dining reservations can be made through your My Disney Experience Account. Be sure that you are logged in to your My Disney Experience account before making your Dining reservations to ensure that your reservations properly link to your account and show in your upcoming plans. Once signed in, you should see a bar under Pam’s Plans and Tickets, which has a Dining option. If you hover over the dining option, you can Make a Reservation. After you click the Make a Reservation option, the system will take you to the restaurant listing where you can choose your desired restaurant and search for availability on your desired date/time for your party size. After choosing your reservation time, complete the remaining prompts, and you’ll be all set! 

    I hope this helps, Pam! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    To Infinity and Beyond,
