    How soon should we plan our vacation if we are coming to WDW in the summer of 2023? We will have four families, with a total of 15 people. Need four rooms at one of the Disney Resorts on the lake by the Magic Kingdom.

    Hello Martin! Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question.

    It is never too soon to begin planning your next vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. I typically start thinking about my next trip when I am checking out of my Disney Resorts Collection hotel, after a wonderful vacation. I am a firm believer that when you start thinking about it and discussing it with your family members is the time to start booking your next trip.

    Summer is one of my favorite times of year to visit, even though it’s a popular time for most guests, with some advanced planning, you can still have a great time. Guests who are planning to stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can make room-only reservations 499 days in advance. Resorts closest to the Magic Kingdom are extremely popular due to their spectacular views and transportation options. I would suggest that you book these rooms as soon as possible by speaking with a Cast Member by calling (407) 939-1936. You may even be able to request your rooms to be near each other.

    Theme Park Tickets and Theme Park reservations are not available for 2023 as of yet. Remember, you will need a valid theme park ticket and park pass reservation for each person in your travel party for each day you plan to visit a theme park. You can also begin making Dining Reservations 60 days before your arrival for everyone in your party.

    Martin, remember if a special offer or package that includes admission and eventually dining becomes available, you can always modify your reservation to take advantage of any offers that would give you a discount on your travel plans. You would need to request the offer by speaking to a Cast Member when it becomes available.

    I hope this helps you get off to a great start with your planning. If you have any more questions, please ask me or come back and visit us again here at planDisney.

    See ya real soon,
