    Why can’t I start building my vacation package for October 2023 now?

    Hey there, Noel! Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for stopping by with your question.

    I've got great news for you! Between the time you submitted your question and now the 2023 calendar has opened up! This means you can start planning your October 2023 vacation package now. Now you can start researching to decide if you want a Disneyland Resort Hotel Package or a Good Neighbor Hotel Package. If you are trying to keep your trip budget-friendly, there are lots of Good Neighbor options that are not far from the parks. If you are wanting to stay on property, you cannot go wrong with either of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. My favorite is the Disneyland Hotel since it's the original hotel on property and it's full of nostalgia. My kids love it because of the magical headboards. 

    When you purchase a Disneyland Resort Hotel Package you will receive a confirmation number for your reservation, but your theme park tickets will not be linked to your Disney account until four days before arrival. As you may know, you need both theme park tickets and theme park ticket reservations to enter the parks. Theme park ticket reservations can be made up to 120 days in advance. I recommend putting that date in your calendar. You will be able to make those reservations through your hotel confirmation for the dates you need even though you don't have the tickets linked to your account. 

    Noel, I hope this good news means you can start planning the magic! Please come back and visit us again with any other questions as you make your plans!
