    How soon can I book a room only reservation and Walt Disney World Resort?

    Hi there, Brandy!  You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    In my opinion, it's never too early to start planning your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  However, while you can certainly start dreaming about what you'd like that trip to look like, you might need to wait just a bit longer before you can actually book your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room.

    In the past, Guests were able to book room-only reservations further in advance, but at this time, room-only reservations are opening for booking at the same time as vacation packages.  Currently, the booking calendar is open through the end of 2023.  While we don't yet know the exact date when the 2024 booking calendar will open, in previous years, the following year's calendar became available in the late spring or early summer.  I recommend checking back on the Walt Disney World Resort website over the next few months.  You can also keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any announcements about when the 2024 booking calendar will open.

    While you're waiting to book your resort hotel reservation for your 2024 trip, you can do a little research to get ready for when those reservations open for booking.  If you go to the Panel Extras section on the planDisney website, you will find our Disney Resort Hotels Pocket Guides.  These are great resources for deciding which Disney Resorts Collection hotel you'd like to call your home away from home.  As you begin planning your trip, I would also suggest exploring all of Walt Disney World's attractions and entertainment options to create a list of your must-do experiences.  While you're making your must-do lists, be sure to also make note of the dining options you'd like to try.  I would also recommend checking out the planDisney Podcast.  The podcast is a great vacation planning resource.

    Brandy, if you need some advice on choosing a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or if you have questions about any other aspect of your vacation, please don't hesitate to ask.  We're all ears!

    See ya real soon!
