Walt Disney World 2024 Vacation Bookings Reopen After Experiencing Downtime

Walt Disney World has reopened 2024 vacation bookings after having to pause sales due to overwhelming guest demand.

2024 Vacation Bookings

Disney opened 2024 vacation bookings early this morning but quickly paused all sales via phone and online. Guests trying to book saw messages stating, “Room, package and ticket bookings are currently paused online and over the phone. Bookings will resume as soon as possible.”

Similar problems happened last week, as guests desperately swamped the reservation systems attempting to book voyages aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.

A virtual waiting room to book 2024 vacations online is now open a few hours later, although a message saying bookings are paused still appears and the approximate wait time is “recalculating.”

As Disney states, to retain your place in the waiting room, don’t refresh the page or hit the back button.

With bookings opening today, guests can reserve a Disney Dining Plan for the first time in three years.

The Disney Dining Plans will return on January 9, 2024.

There are two plans as part of the program: Disney Dining Plan and Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan. The first includes table-service restaurants. Read about Disney Dining Plan pricing.
