    Hello, our family is planning to visit WDW in April 2023. When will reservations open up for WDW resorts at that time? Thank you!

    Hi Mark! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    I may be partial since it is my birthday month but I absolutely LOVE visiting Walt Disney World Resort in the spring, especially to celebrate my birthday in April! My family and I always traveled during this time when I was younger and taking in the sights and smells of the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival is one of my favorite ways to party.  Between the gorgeous flower arrangements, the incredible topiaries and the mouthwatering snacks, there is no place I would rather be.

    Now that I'm older and have my own family we still like to visit the Resort during this time.  In fact, we're also planning a vacation for next April, so maybe we'll see you there! Did you know you can actually start booking your stay right now?  Yup! By simply calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line at (407) 939-1936 you can speak with a Cast Member and book your "Room Only" reservation at any Disney Resorts Collection hotel up to 499 days in advance of your trip! While this reservation will not include your Theme Park Tickets or extras like Disney Genie+ Service it's still nice to get some definite plans set so you and your family can begin counting down the days until you're off to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    If you want to wait until you're able to book an entire vacation package before you set your plans in stone, you probably don't have much longer to wait.  While the Walt Disney World Resort website currently only shows dates available through December 31, 2022, vacation packages for next year are usually released in June or July of this year, meaning that we may see that calendar expand into 2023 real soon!  

    When you visit next year make sure to check out the amazing new attraction at EPCOTGuardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.  I was lucky enough to try this ride a few times (ok, maybe seven) a couple of weeks ago and it completely blew me and my fellow panelists away.  I promise you and your family are not going to want to miss this incredible coaster which officially opens on May 27th!

    Please feel free to stop by again with any other planning questions that might arise!
