    I thought I could plan my Disney vacation 499 days out however I can't buy tickets, reserve parks or even search the resorts past 2022. Is there something wrong with the website?

    Hey howdy hey, Morgan.

    I’m so glad you rode like the wind with Bullseye and found your way to planDisney! 2023 may seem like it's (Buzz) lightyears away, but it's never too early to start planning a vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth. After all, there’s nothing better than having a trip “home” on the horizon.

    I understand your eagerness to get everything in motion, but vacation packages for 2023 have yet to be released. Turn that frown upside down though, because you are correct that you can book a room-only reservation at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel 499 days in advance - hooray! To do so, you have to give the friendly Cast Members a ring at (407) 939-1936 and ask for their assistance. Typically, vacation packages for the following year are released in the summer. Once they are, you can modify your room-only reservation to be a vacation package. Alternatively, you can simply purchase and link your theme park tickets at a later date.

    Have you decided which Disney Resorts Collection hotel to book as your home away from home for your trip, Morgan? Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a beautiful Resort with unique theming. Where else can you enjoy your morning cup of coffee with an African savanna view? Disney's Pop Century Resort is my family's go-to (the convenience of having the Disney Skyliner on site just can’t be beat), but we recently stayed at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort and were quite pleased with our experience there as well. Disney’s Riviera Resort is on the Disney Skyliner line too and has close proximity to EPCOT. It’s a stunning Resort that I’m sure would amp up the pixie dust for your vacation. You'll have access to the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel no matter which one you end up choosing though.

    Morgan, I hope this information helps. Please come visit us at planDisney again soon. We’ll reach for the sky and go to infinity and beyond to find the information you need. Happy planning!

    You’ve got a friend in me,
