    My husband is turning 50 in 2024 and wants to celebrate by spending Christmas in Disney World. 🥳🎁❤️ I want to make his milestone birthday dream a reality-so when is the earliest that I can start booking vacation packages for 2024? Thanks!

    Hiya Lindsay!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for sending us this magical question! I am so excited you stopped by to ask us this question as I can tell you also love planning magical vacations, which is our bread and butter here at planDisney! I don't know about you, Lindsay, but I sometimes think the planning process of a Disney vacation can be almost just as exciting as the vacation itself, especially when you're planning such a magical occasion!

    Unfortunately, since 2024 vacation packages have not yet been released, we do not know precisely when they will become available online. In the past, packages have usually dropped at the end of the springtime in June, so you can keep an eye out for any updates around that time next year! In the meantime, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the Walt Disney World website for any other updates on Disney offerings. 

    Now, I thought I might give you some more suggestions of fun activities you can add to your magical plans! Since the Grand Floridian Spa reopened, booking a treatment or massage would be such a special way to celebrate. If you are more into adventurous activities, I highly recommend booking an Enchanting Extra, specifically the Wild Africa Trek! This experience is perfect for animal lovers and those who enjoy going on fun hikes and is a must-do in my book! For other ideas, look through the Enchanting Extras Collection to see all options available. Some other must-dos, in my opinion, include picking up a "Happy Birthday" button at the front desk of your Resort hotel and getting a special dessert to celebrate. Lastly, end the day by booking a Specialty Cruise to watch the fireworks. Not only do these cruises offer a unique and crowd-free view of the fireworks, but they even include assorted drinks, snacks and special celebratory decorations in the cost. Enchanting Extras and dining reservations can be booked 60 days in advance, so make sure to circle that date in your calendar once you do book your package!

    I hope this was helpful, Lindsay, and that you and your husband will have the most magical vacation on your next Walt Disney World trip! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach back out. It is always such an honour to help my fellow Canadians plan their magical vacations!

    Have a magical day,
