    How far in advance can I book my stay on Disney properties?

    Hi Cheryl! Thanks for putting your trust in planDisney!

    I can see that you're already looking forward to an amazing autumn vacation at Walt Disney World Resort next year! I think that beginning the planning process this early is a perfect idea because you have an excellent chance to grab a reservation at your favorite Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can start to plan your daily itineraries and make your Theme Park Reservations AND you'll have time to check out every dining location and special activity in the Enchanting Extras Collection before you can make your Advance Dining Reservations 60 days before your arrival. 

    Right now, Guests interested in booking magical vacations for 2023 are in luck! On the Walt Disney World Resort website, you'll find that the booking calendar runs right through December 31, 2023, meaning that you and your party are able to begin setting your upcoming plans in stone right away! 

    On the Walt Disney World Resort website just click the "Places to Stay" tab at the top of the screen.  Here, you'll be able to edit your check-in and check-out dates and the number of Guests in your party.  After scrolling through and finding a practically perfect Resort for you and your crew, select it to decide whether you'd like to add on Theme Park Tickets to make your reservation a vacation package.  

    As your vacation gets closer you'll want to start discussing whether you'd like to use the new Disney Genie+ Service to help you and your party get through lines for rides and attractions even faster.  By using "Lightning Lanes" and "Individual Lightning Lanes" you'll be able to wander off and grab a DOLE Whip or enjoy other entertainment like the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom before returning to ride an attraction at a later time with little to no wait! 

    Come back and see us again if you have any other questions while you're planning your upcoming trip!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
