2024 Walt Disney World Resort Reservations Open Briefly, Then Close as Guests Overwhelm System

Walt Disney World opened up bookings for 2024 vacations this morning, only to quickly pause all sales via phone and Internet in what has become a familiar routine to many, likely due to high demand stressing their systems.

Shortly after bookings opened, guests started getting screens stating: “Pardon The Inconvenience Room, package and ticket bookings are currently paused online and over the phone. Bookings will resume as soon as possible.”

The My Disney Experience app also reminded guests that they could add Disney Dining Plan to their hotel bookings starting today, if and when the systems come back up. We do not currently have an estimated down time for the Disney reservation systems.

Disney Dining Plan

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.

Check out the full list of Walt Disney World restaurants participating in both Disney Dining Plans.

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