    I want to start planning our January 2024 trip to DE, but the vacation calendar is grayed out in January. When can I schedule this trip?

    Hi Alison! Wow! That has been a very popular question to arrive at planDisney over the past few weeks! It’s good to hear that so many Guests want to start their planning as quickly as possible! A little extra planning can add a lot of extra magic to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I just spoke with a helpful Cast Member at the Walt Disney World Resort! She shared that vacation bookings for 2024 will most likely be released later in the spring or very early summer. I’m going to make a guess that it will be more in the springtime. Keep checking the Walt Disney World Resort website for 2024 vacation availability! You’ve selected a great time to visit! Typically, the very busy holiday crowds have subsided once January rolls around. 

    Alison, there is no need to hold back on the fun of planning! I recommend looking at the various hotel options that are available for Guests! Keep in mind that there are many benefits to staying at a resort hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection! For example, Guests of Disney Resort Hotels can take advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry benefit! This perk allows Disney Resort Hotels Guests to enter any of the Disney Parks 30-minutes prior to the official park opening time any day of the week! Additionally, Guests of deluxe Disney Resort Hotels have the perk of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours! This incredible benefit allows Guests of deluxe resort hotels to remain in select Disney Parks on select nights after official park closing time!

    Happy Planning!
