    We are planning on a trip next June, 2023 to Walt Disney World. I was wondering how soon can we start making reservations?

    Hi Nicole and welcome to planDisney!

    I see I have a fellow early planner here. My upcoming trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth was a rescheduled trip due to the pandemic which has given me 2 full years to plan the best trip ever for my family. I'm going to do my best to make sure yours is just as magical as mine is going to be.

    Traditionally vacation packages for 2023 start to get released sometime in the summer so we should be creeping up on that time. You should definitely keep an eye out over at Disney Parks Blog. They're usually one of the first to report new releases and news for the Disney Parks. In the meantime, I'm happy to tell you that you can make a room-only reservation for your Disney Resorts Collection hotel 499 in advance of your arrival date. That means you can book your hotel right now! Go ahead and lock in that room and once packages are released you can add those tickets to your booking.

    Currently, the Walt Disney World Resort is requiring Theme Park Reservations via the Disney Parks Pass System in addition to a valid ticket. When you're making that purchase, be sure to check the availability calendar first and then make those reservations immediately after they're bought. 

    And finally, you can make Advanced Dining Reservations and Enchanting Extra Collections reservations exactly 60 days prior to your arrival date. I tend to wake up good and early that day and book all of my important Table Service Meals. This year will be the first time I try to snag a Specialty Cruise for my family to watch Harmonious in EPCOT. 

    Nicole, may your trip next year bring your family all the joy these vacations bring to mine. I'm wishing you much pixie dust that it all turns out just right for you.

    Happy planning!
