    Romy from Victoria Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Everywhere says you can book hotels 499 days ahead of time, which would be up until September 2024, yet why can I only see until the end of the year? Has this changed?

    G'day Romy and welcome back to planDisney. I am so excited for you to visit "The Most Magical Place on Earth" next year. Mickey is going to love seeing you. Funny enough while you are doing that I will start my year in Sydney on the Adventures By Disney Australia trip. Looks like we both have a lot of Pacific Ocean to cross next year.

    You are correct. Everywhere on the internet and for many, many years you could make a room-only reservation 499 in advance. The policy has changed. Disney Resorts Collection hotel may only be booked as Disney opens the calendar. It is a mystery right now how and when they decide to open up Resort hotel reservations. However, check every day because new months that are not open today could be open tomorrow.

    plan Disney Pro Tip: I will give you the same advice when it comes to Theme Park Reservations as well. Check for theme park availability to see which are open and once you have a ticket linked to your My Disney Experience account you should book those reservations.

    Romy, I love how far in advance you are thinking because you know the further out you book the better the Resort hotel rate. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
