    Why have you not released January 2023 packages yet? Last year we could book in February- it’s days away from being April. I really need to book my birthday trip for January and give friends and family the details so they can book also.

    Hi Michelle!

    How exciting that you are booking a trip for your birthday! Walt Disney World is the most magical place in the world to celebrate! 

    Michelle, for your January reservation, you can book your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation now by calling (407) 939-1936. When you book a resort-only reservation, you can add the theme park tickets and upgrade to a package at a later date. 

    The Walt Disney World packages and pricing for the following year are typically released in June. You could either book your resort hotel room-only reservation now and add your tickets at a later date or you can wait until June to book your package.

    Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements on when the 2023 packages are available to book online. And of course, watch the special offers page for upcoming 2023 packages and discounts. 

    I encourage you to make an advanced dining reservation for your birthday dinner, which you can begin doing 60 days prior to your check-in date. I highly recommend Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. If you book around 9pm, you can even catch the Electrical Water Pageant Parade. 

    You can also order a birthday cake customized with a happy birthday message! You can order a cake in advance by calling 407-827-2253 at least 72 hours in advance. The cake can be delivered to one of the many Walt Disney World table service restaurants or your resort.

    Happy birthday from planDisney! I hope you have a magical vacation!
