    When will packages be available for booking for visit in January 2023?

    Hi there, Andrea. Welcome to planDisney

    I see that you are wanting to plan a Walt Disney World vacation for the first of next year. That's amazing. I can't think of a better way to kick off a new year other than at Walt Disney World. It is going to be magical! 

    Andrea, typically vacation packages for the following year are released sometime in the early summer months. You can expect to see something open up around June or July of this year. But it is best to keep checking back because there isn't a set date for this. I did want to mention that you can actually book a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel only stay 499 days in advance. Your trip in January fits well within that timeframe if you'd like to go ahead and get a headstart on planning. If you didn't see a lot of information about this online, Andrea, no worries. You actually have to call (407) 939-1936 and have a Cast Member assist you with this over the phone. When you call to book a resort hotel room stay only you'll need to know your travel dates, your travel party, your desired resort hotel and be able to pay for a one-night stay as a deposit. Some of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels are wildly popular and this is a great way to make sure you reserve the one you'd really like to stay at. Then, in the summer, when vacation packages are released you can always call back and change your resort hotel only reservation to a vacation package if one works for you. I highly recommend doing it this way if you have your heart set on a particular resort hotel.

    Feel free to keep checking back with me about when vacation packages are released or keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog. When more information is released, that's going to be where we can find all of the details. 

    Happy planning!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
