    Hi, we are planning a special family trip to Disneyland California from the UK to celebrate a milestone birthday next August. We would love to stay in a Disney hotel and we are eager to book as early as possible. When is booking available for next summer?

    Hello there, Laura!

    Welcome to planDisney! Celebrating birthdays (or Tuesdays!) at the Disneyland Resort is always a great idea, I would love to help you get some ideas flowing for your big adventure!

    Staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel is the ultimate way to experience the Disneyland Resort to the fullest! I wish I had a way to peek into the future and tell you when Disneyland Resort Hotel Packages for 2024 would be available. Instead, I'm waiting right there with you! The suspense is less-than-magical, I know. Last year packages became available in August, so I'm very hopeful that good news is just around the corner for us. Watch for updates on the Disney Parks Blog and make sure your communication preferences for your Disney account include the Disneyland Resort so any updates will come straight to your inbox!

    While we wait, can I share some of my favorite celebratory things at the Disneyland Resort?

    • Take a guided tour! The options may be slightly different closer to your trip next year, but there are always some great choices. Walt's Main Street Story Tour lets you visit his apartment in Disneyland Park, it's such a special place!
    • Make reservations for a special meal! There are several different character meals at the resort, I especially love the ones at the hotels. It's the perfect way to say "See ya real soon!" at the end of your vacation, or to start things off strong on the day you arrive! Reservations can typically be made 60 days in advance. 
    • My very top favorite celebration at the parks right now is the World of Color Dessert Party. The fruit, cheese, and desserts are delicious, and the view of the show is phenomenal!
    Of course, you should always ask for a celebratory (and complimentary) button when you arrive. They'll likely have one right at your Disney Resort Hotel when you check in! You can also order a magical delivery for your hotel room, or choose a personalized souvenir in the parks.

    Laura, I know that traveling internationally can come with more questions than usual! You might consider finding a local travel agent who specializes in Disney to help you plan your trip when it's time to book. Or you are more than welcome to send me your planning questions about choosing a hotel, making dining reservations, or anything else and I'll be thrilled to help you! Here's hoping that we'll be booking our 2024 celebrations soon!

    Keep moving forward!
