    Hiya Tricia!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, a group of Disney vacation enthusiasts eager to help you make the most out of your next vacation. I am so glad that you decided to stop by with your question, and it would be my pleasure to help you with an answer. I was able to experience our dream Disney vacation with a stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village a few years ago, and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. We could not get enough of the incredible views of the animals roaming the savannas, the gorgeous African theming throughout the resort, and the unique dining options.

    A visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year makes for an unforgettable vacation, where you are sure to make memories that you will cherish for a lifetime. The holiday season is typically a busy time of year in Walt Disney World, with the busiest weeks occurring over school vacation times, such as winter break (the last two weeks of December) and the week of Thanksgiving. I think if you book any time from mid-November through mid-December (excluding Thanksgiving week), you will likely experience smaller crowds than the weeks outside of this time frame.

    I highly recommend booking your resort reservation now, knowing that you can be on the lookout for valid Special Offers and deals on vacation packages that can be applied to your reservation if they become available at a later date. I hope this information helps you book your dream vacation in Walt Disney World! Please stop back by planDisney if we can help answer any more of your vacation questions.
