    Hi we are coming to USA at Xmas time from New Zealand and want to visit Disneyland in l.a on the 2nd of January is it possible to book and do a reservation now? Thanks

    Hey there, Brett! Welcome to planDisney! We appreciate you stopping by with your question. 

    I'm so excited to hear you are making a trip to the United States during the holiday season and will be in the area in January 2023. While I too would be wanting to start getting plans and reservations started, you will have to hold out for a bit. Currently, you can book Disneyland Resort Hotels through the end of 2022 and you can make theme park ticket reservations 120 days out. If you make hotel reservations and ticket purchases together Disneyland Resort Hotel Vacation Packages, you can book these through the end of 2022. 

    We do not have any specific date as to when the calendar for 2023 will open up, but I would recommend you check back to the Disneyland website in the upcoming weeks and into the summer months. I am hopeful that we will see the calendar open up sometime this summer. Once the calendar is out, you will be able to officially start the planning process and purchase your vacation package.

    If you do purchase a Disneyland Resort Vacation Package in advance, I suggest setting some reminders in your calendar to complete some other important planning. With the holiday season being especially popular, I would be proactive with these planning milestones. You will want to set a reminder to book your theme park ticket reservations. As I mentioned earlier, you can do this 120 days in advance. When you are 60 days out, you will be able to start making dining reservations. A character meal is always a good idea!

    Brett, I hope you are able to book your trip soon so the real planning can begin. I can't wait for you to experience The Happiest Place on Earth during the holiday season with all of the beautiful decor and overlays on some of the attractions. It's extra magical!
