    We would like to book a 2 bedroom villa at the Beach Club resort for Dec. 7-13 , 2020. When do these rooms become available for non DVC members?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I returned home yesterday from a fabulous stay at Disney’s Beach Club Villas, and I am so excited for you! You are going to have an amazing Christmas vacation at one of the best “location” Resorts. You are less than a five-minute walk away from Epcot’s International Gateway, and fifteen-minutes in the other direction is Disney’s Hollywood Studios. (Or you could take an “earthly” ride on the brand new Disney Skyliner to a galaxy far, far, away!)

    I verified your booking window with an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (a fantastic Cast Member) this evening. Typically, booking for Disney Vacation Club Villas via cash (for non-members) opens eight months ahead. So for your December 2020 vacation, plan on securing a reservation in April 2020.

    During your stay, make sure to take advantage of your easy access to Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. Epcot is one of my favorite Theme Parks because of its fantastic Festival offerings. (I just spent the entire Labor Day weekend sampling the ‘World at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival!). During the holiday festival, you can sample global cuisine, go on a holiday cookie stroll, and revel with JOYFUL! A Celebration of the Season, a fantastic gospel choir that uplifts with songs of the season.

    Elizabeth, you are going to have the most beautiful vacation. I wish you an EARly Very Merry Christmas!
