    Hi, we are planning to go to Disney World sometime in 2024. When do reservations for resorts open up?

    Hi there, Carolyn! Welcome to planDisney!

    Wow, your planning spirit truly makes me happy! I love a Guest who thinks ahead to their next vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Generally, Guests can book Disney Resort Hotel rooms up to 499 days in advance. Depending on when you plan to visit in 2024, you may already be within that window. If you plan to visit later in the year, you can just calculate backward from the date or timeframe you'd like to visit so you know when to book. In short, your trip date minus 499 days should give you an exact date for when you can officially make your reservation.

    The biggest advantage to booking your room-only reservation this early is that you'll have your pick when it comes to Disney Resort Hotels. If you don't already have a resort or room type in mind, I'd recommend studying a little bit to find the perfect accommodation for you. Once you know exactly what you want, it'll be easier to book it when that day comes. The Walt Disney World Resort Website has lots of information about each hotel. You can also find some really handy planDisney Pocket Guides that will help you get the overall feel of each accommodation!

    When booking this far ahead, you will need to call a Cast Member over at the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations Line to get this all on the books. While technology can be wonderful, the online booking tool cannot search this far ahead for you. These Cast Members are friendly and knowledgeable and well.. they know the drill! They'll be able to get your accommodation on the books so you can continue the other fun parts of your planning journey!

    Pro Tip: You'll also want to mark your calendar 60 days ahead of your arrival date once you get your reservation scheduled. At 60 days out, you can book advance dining reservations and add-ons from the Enchanting Extras Collection. This is one of those "important Disney dates" that you should keep in the back of your mind or front and center on your calendar!

    Happy planning,
