    good evening, we have booked to travel next year 2022, and we want to know when will we get a Disney reference number so we can start to book reservations for parks, restaurants and other exciting activities.

    Hi Tara! 

    You have so much fun, food, and Disney delight to anticipate! You must feel like Cinderella before the ball!
    Planning your meals, park days, and special events is a huge part of the fun, right? I love how you are planning your Walt Disney World adventure ahead for 2022!

    You will need to have your tickets purchased and linked to My Disney Experience to make a theme park reservation. If you have already bought your tickets, they will show up under Tickets on your app and My Plans on a desk or laptop. Head to Disney Park Pass Reservations to book your park days.

    All that is required to make Disney Dining Reservations is a credit card and patience. Currently restaurants are only booking 60 days in advance, so you have months to wait before your reservation window opens. This window could easily expand before your trip, however.

    After hours events for late 2022 have not been announced yet and many tours and experiences are currently on hold due to covid protocols, so you will have to wait a bit before booking special events as well. This gives you plenty of time to allow for more experiences to reopen.

    Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for updates. Announcements about after hours events, restaurant and tour reopenings, and new experiences will be found here. For example, this week information about tickets and show dates for the new Cirque du Soleil show Drawn to Life at Disney Springs was released on the blog.

    Wishing you a well planned, wonderful adventure visiting the mouse!
