    How earlier I need to book my holiday if I want to travel from end December (and spend new year’s) till early January at Disney?

    Hi Friend! Welcome to planDisney! I don't know your name, but I'm happy to see that you're already planning your next adventure. Spending New Year's Eve at the Walt Disney World Resort is a magical and unique experience, and I'm excited for you to be a part of it. 

    Great news! You can now book vacations up to October 2025. For your December trip, I strongly recommend booking as soon as possible. This is a popular season, especially for Disney Resorts Collection hotels, and some rooms may already be sold out. Securing your spot early ensures you don't miss out on the unique benefits and experiences these hotels offer.

     If you're planning to visit Magic Kingdom or EPCOT on December 24th, 25th or 31st, it's important to note that the parks can fill up quickly. Once the park reaches capacity, entry is restricted, even with a ticket. To make the most of your visit and not miss out on any attractions, it's best to plan ahead and arrive early. This way, you'll get to experience all the magic the parks have to offer.

    It's good to know that you have the option to switch to another park if the one you want to visit is already at total capacity. For instance, if Magic Kingdom is full, you can head to Disney's Hollywood Studios to enjoy Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance or visit Disney's Animal Kingdom to explore Pandora before hopping on the thrilling Avatar Flight of Passage. If you're more interested in EPCOT, don't forget to try my new favorite rollercoaster, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

    I hope this information helps you plan your perfect trip! If you have any questions or need any help, just let me know. It's always a pleasure to help a friend like you.
