    Sarah from IL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Trying to plan our trip for 2024 July and hotels still are closed past Jan 15, 2024. I’ve checked multiple blogs and check the hotel availability calendar with no magic date to book. Trying to figure out why I can book summer 2024 dates in WDW but not WDL.

    Hello there Sarah, from one Illinois resident to another!  Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney.  

    I wish I had the date to share with you of when the 2024 bookings will open up!  I can't wait to book our next trip, and I'm really hoping that we will hear soon.  I'd keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the official announcement, they're also a great resource for all of the special events and celebrations taking place at the Disneyland Resort and the delicious foodie guides!  

    While we wait for the bookings to become available, I highly recommend exploring where you'll want to stay during your trip.  We love to stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, you cannot beat the magical ambiance, service, and proximity to the theme parks!  We also love to take advantage of early entry, where Guests staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels can enjoy admission to Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park 30 minutes early to enjoy select attractions, dining and shopping locations.  Being from the Midwest, we're always up early in California because of the time change, so we love to enjoy early entry!  We find we can get so much accomplished and ride several attractions in those early morning hours.  

    I'm sending you all of the pixie dust that you're able to book your trip soon!  Sarah, if you think of any other questions as you plan your trip, please do not hesitate to come back and ask!

    Have a magical day!
