    How far in advance can hotel reservations at the Grand Californian be made please?

    Well hello there, Allison. A warm welcome from all of us at planDisney. We're so glad you're here and stopped by with this question.

    It's never too early to start planning a vacation - especially if it's a magical Disney vacation. I guess I should say it's almost never too early to start planning a vacation, as dates for 2024 are not yet available for booking at this time. While we unfortunately don't know the exact date that 2024 bookings will open, in previous years, bookings for the following year have typically opened sometime during the summer of the previous year. We're only a few days away from summer officially starting and I hope we hear some news soon. I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any updates and news.

    If you're thinking about booking a Disneyland Vacation Package, dates for the entire year should become available once 2024 bookings are released. With a vacation package, you will be required to pay a deposit at the time of booking. The remaining balance will then be due 30 days prior to your arrival. You even have the option to make payments along the way, leading up to the final balance due date.

    You have the choice of booking at a Disneyland Resort Hotel or a Good Neighbor Hotel. While we have some time before 2024 bookings open, you can ponder these options for your trip. It's always extra magical when you're able to stay on resort property at a Disneyland Resort Hotel and enjoy fabulous perks like early park entry. Good Neighbor Hotels are also great and offer many different options for any budget. A lot of them are also within quick walking distance of the Disneyland Resort. 

    While not the answer you were hoping to hear, Allison, I hope this information is still helpful for your planning. Please come back to see us with any other questions. Until then, we'll all be (anxiously) waiting for next year's dates to open. Have a magical day and happy planning!
