    I'm trying to plan a trip January, 2024. The planning tool online goes to December 2023. When will I be able to start planning for January dates? Need for budget purposes. Thanks!

    Hiya Kim,

    Welcome to planDisney! In my opinion, it is never too early to start planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort. So thank you for visiting us to help get you started.

    Currently, Walt Disney World reservations can only be booked out as far as the released annual product dates, essentially only through the end of 2023. We haven’t heard any official news on when the 2024 Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Packages will be released, but historically we have seen packages released in the springtime for the upcoming year. This is subject to change, but I recommend checking the website in mid-April-early May to see if dates have started popping up for January. I know this may pause your planning for a little bit, but before you know it, we will be in Spring time.

    In the meantime, I recommend looking through the Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotel choices. There are so many incredible choices to pick from, so you can start to get a sense of what may work best for you and your family. Just know that whichever resort you choose is going to be incredible. You really can’t make a wrong choice, especially if it suits your family’s needs. My family and I personally love resorts near EPCOT. The Magic Kingdom Park resorts are definitely iconic, but we love the ease of walking to EPCOT and riding the Disney Skyliner. If you would love tips about selecting your next resort hotel, you should check out the podcast episode below. My fellow panelists have some fantastic tips and tricks to help.

    As always, if you need anything else, please come back and see us.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
