    Hi there, any updates for booking in 2026 Halloween/ Christmas? With gratitude, Reid

    Hi there, Reid!

    You are really putting the "plan" in planDisney, my friend, and I love that! It's never too soon to start planning a Disney adventure!

    It is, however, sometimes too soon to actually book your next Disney adventure. I don't know when you'll be able to book a visit for 2026, but I can tell you that bookings for 2024 opened up on August 24, 2023. Historically bookings have opened for the whole year at once, so you will likely be able to book your Disneyland Resort Hotel Package over a year in advance since you want to go later in the year. I recommend starting to watch the Disney Parks Blog and the Disneyland website in the summer of 2025 so that you'll be ready to book your adventure when it's time!

    The great thing about purchasing a Disneyland Resort Hotel Package is that your hotel and park tickets are all wrapped into one magical purchase. You'll have the option to pay a deposit, and then make payments toward the balance of your vacation over time. You just need to have the whole amount paid at least 30 days before you arrive.

    The real question is how will you pick between Halloween Time and the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort? Talk about a hard choice!

    If you're a fan of all things spooky and villainous, then perhaps Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is the right vibe. That celebration features a special after-hours ticketed event, Oogie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party, which is totally amazing! It can be difficult to get tickets to that party, so if that's on your "must-see" list then make sure you start watching the Disney Parks Blog so you know when tickets go on sale.

    My personal favorite of all the seasonal celebrations is the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort. Seeing the theme parks all decorated for the holidays is an incredible experience! Add in lots of delicious seasonal foods and entertainment full of the love and delight of the holidays and you're in for a huge treat. It's spectacular! 

    Reid, you've got plenty of time to dream up the most magical Disneyland Resort vacation ever. I hope you'll come back if you have more questions so that I can keep planning along with you! By 2026, who knows what amazing new things will be waiting for you at the parks? I can't wait to find out!

    Keep moving forward!
