    Hello! I was wondering around what time of year will December 2025 and Early January 2026 tickets and hotel reservations will come out? Thanks so much!

    Hello there, Cleo!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're overjoyed you've stopped by with a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! Like you, I enjoy planning my visits to The Most Magical Place on Earth well in advance. Cleo, I'm happy to help you prepare for your next exciting escape to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    At the time of writing, Guests may book Disney Resort hotel reservations and purchase theme park tickets for arrival dates through December 31, 2023. Guests may also choose to book vacation packages, which include a Resort hotel stay and tickets, through this period. Cleo, in recent years, vacation packages, Resort hotel bookings, and theme park tickets for the next calendar year have become available in late spring/early summer of the current year. For example, 2024 Walt Disney World Resort bookings were announced on May 8, 2023 and made available to Guests on May 31, 2023. Before that, bookings for 2023 Walt Disney World Resort vacations were announced on May 18, 2022 and became available to Guests on June 8, 2022. Cleo, if I were you, I'd keep a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog, official Disney Parks social media channels, and the Walt Disney World Resort website around that timeframe in 2024 for any exciting announcements about 2025 bookings!

    December and January are some of my favorite months to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth. There's no place like the Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays! Generally, the holiday season is celebrated from early November through December 31, 2023, so it's reasonable to believe that a December 2025 vacation will mean decked halls, snow on Main Street, U.S.A., and magical merriment in the theme parks and Disney Resort hotels. Every year in early January, the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend usually draws runDisney enthusiasts to The Most Magical Place on Earth from around the world. This exciting race weekend is planned for January 8-12, 2025, and I would expect similar dates for January 2026.

    Cleo, I hope you've found these details helpful as you look to plan your next Walt Disney World Resort adventure. If you have any additional planning questions, you're always welcome to revisit us at planDisney! We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Warm wishes,
