    We have to plan our Disney World vacation during the Thanksgiving 2024 school break. When should we be worrying about reserving our Disney resort?

    Hey there, Wes! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great planning question!

    I am so happy to see that the magic is calling you, and you are answering the call by planning your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times to visit Walt Disney World Resort. The weather always seems to be mild, there are endless fabulous restaurants to enjoy a pixie-dusted Thanksgiving dinner, and it's just the most magical way to kick off the holiday season. I'm so excited for you, Wes. Now, let's get this planning party started!

    Wes, you have asked your question at the practically perfect time. I think you will be happy to hear that vacation packages, theme park tickets, and Disney Resort hotel reservations for 2024 will be available for booking on May 31st, 2023! BEST. NEWS. EVER! Just book your vacation on the Walt Disney World website. It's that easy!

    And the good news doesn't stop there. Disney Parks Blog also announced that Theme Park Reservations will no longer be required for date-based tickets AND ... drum roll, please ... Disney Dining Plans will be returning! This will make planning your 2024 Thanksgiving vacation even easier and more delicious.

    I recommend doing a little planning before May 31st approaches, Wes. Check out the different Disney Resort hotels to get an idea of where you may want to spend your adventure. Consider the type of tickets you want and if you are interested in adding the Dining Plan to your vacation package. That way, as soon as bookings for 2024 open, you'll be ready to book the vacation of your dreams!

    I hope this was helpful, Wes, and happy planning! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    Adventure is out there!
