Yes, it does

If OP wants to say "I'm going on holiday, I can't wait to go (there)" then J'ai hate d'y aller is correct.
If it's part of a sentence like "I can't wait to go on holiday" then it should be " j'ai hate d'aller ...(en vacances)"

If OP means I can't wait to go, as in LEAVE (I'm in a boring french lesson, I can't wait to go) that's a different kettle of fish entirely
