    I am trying to book a Walt Disney World vacation for January 2023- It is closer than 499 days, but the calendar still will not let me book that far out. Any idea when it will open up for then?

    Welcome to planDisney, Veronica! I'm so glad you dropped by with your planning question.

    Veronica, do you remember when the Fairy Godmother explained that as powerful as her Magic was to transform a pumpkin into a carriage, it ran out at midnight? Well, just like that, sometimes booking a Walt Disney World vacation also has limitations. While typically you can book a room-only reservation (meaning without the bundling of park tickets) 499 days in advance, sometimes a new calendar year will cause the Magic to run out!

    Veronica, because we don't yet have a date when rooms will be available, my best advice is to keep checking back as often as you can. I would also encourage you to keep a close watch on the Disney Parks Blog and @planDisneypanel on Instagram as Magical announcements are posted to these platforms.

    Best wishes, Veronica, as you patiently wait for the release of 2023 rooms. I hope you're able to find your perfect Disney Resorts Collection hotel!
