    Hi I was wondering when Disneyland hotel and park packages will open for 2024. I heard they will open on May 31st for Disneyworld, but does that mean also for Disneyland? I'm eager to plan for my birthday trip in January!

    Hey there, Abigail. Welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing us this great question. 

    Yay! I'm so excited that you are planning to celebrate your birthday at the Disneyland Resort - an excellent choice. I also love that you're planning ahead and can't wait to get your countdown started. While we know that the Walt Disney World Resort will start accepting next year's bookings for hotel stays and vacation packages at the end of the month, we still don't have an official date for when 2024 bookings will open for the Disneyland Resort. 

    In the past, we've seen bookings open for the following year at some point during the summer. I even consulted Madame Leota's crystal ball and could not see a clear answer. I would recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any news and updates.

    While we're waiting for this news to break, it's never too early to start thinking about what you plan to do during your stay and (my favorite) where you might want to eat. When celebrating my birthday at the Disneyland Resort, I love having a relaxing dinner at a wonderful table-service restaurant. One of the iconic locations that I love is the Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square. Advance dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance. This is a popular dining spot so I recommend setting a reminder to try and snag a reservation right at the 60-day mark if this is on your wish list. 

    To make your dinner extra special, you can order a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake to be delivered to select table-service restaurants (subject to change, but Blue Bayou Restaurant is currently on this list). You can also stop by City Hall in Disneyland Park or the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park to request a complimentary birthday button. I love having all of the friendly Cast Members wish me a "Happy Birthday" all day long. 

    Although not quite the answer you were hoping for, Abigail, I hope this still gets you excited to start planning your celebration trip. If this is your first visit to Disneyland or if you'd like other tips and advice as you plan, please come back to ask us your questions - even write me directly. Until then, we'll be anxiously waiting (along with you) for the 2024 dates to open for booking. 

    Have a magical day!
