    how do i book my trip with two hotel rooms?? i have 7 adults and 1 child coming

    Howdy, Amanda and thanks for moseying over here to planDisney!

    I understand you're looking to rope yourselves a couple of rooms for your trip coming up to Walt Disney World Resort later this year! Getting a long head start is good thinking - you know what they say, the early bird gets the...rooms. Yeah, something like that.

    At Walt Disney World Resort, each room has its own stable, and comes home to roost with its own reservation. How do you round up a pair of rooms for your party of eight, then? Simple: just make two reservations! Well, that's really the first step, because kinda like horses - you can lead a reservation toward one another but you can't make them link.

    All this do-si-doing aside, once you have both rooms booked, I'd send a telegram, a Cast Member to let them know your party's all headed to the same ranch together and it'd be mighty kind of them to put y'all in either rooms that are a stone's throw from one another or one of them nifty connectin' rooms if your resort has them. The Cast Member should be able to put a notation on each reservation that you're one giant wagon and keep that request on-file. 

    Now remember, that's just a humble request, and nothing's guaranteed out there in the great wild wilderness of Walt Disney World Resort. Cast Members can only do so much, but many times our requests were fulfilled and we had a rip-roarin' good time. Boy, Howdy! 

    If you're still a little yellah (that means "afraid") of booking two separate reservations, you can get on that fancy telephone thing and have a Cast Member make your reservation as a giant party, but fact remains it's a request, not a pact - so be prepared for a bit of adventure if availability just ain't what it usually is - especially around the New Year!

    Oh, there's also talk of there bein' somethin' called "Deluxe Villas" that have accommodations for bigger parties like yours! I've stayed in one over at the Grand Floridian, and let me tell you, that was the height of luxury for our party of 11!

    No matter how you end up ridin' off into the sunset on your adventure, just be ready for the wildest ride in the wilderness as you ring in the new year at Walt Disney World Resort! I hear tell there's a big ol' celebration goin' on that they're callin' the "World's Most Magical Celebration!" I can't tell you all the things that are in-store, but I do know there's really something for everyone! I'd pack a few extra suitcases in case something real fancy catches your eye - them 50th Anniversary Spirit Jerseys look mighty fine around a warm fire. If your wagon just won't hold another ounce, don't forget that you can send your packages back home - it's no pony express but it's a fine perk of stayin' at a Disney Resort Collection hotel, I hear!

    Amanda, I sure hope this here campfire story helped you out. As Jessie the Yodelin' Cowgirl might say, if y'all end up feelin like critters that may need a helpin' hand as your plans get set - you just let us know, and we'll come ride like the wind to help you out! 

    You've got a friend in me!
