    Bringing in family from Texas to holiday with Disney. Will need up to 3 rooms (not necessarily adjoining but close by), preferably with kitchenettes to reduce food costs. 1. how soon can we book? 2. Does Disney offer a layaway?

    Hi Lawrence and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Christmas at Walt Disney World Resort is such a magical time to visit. It's also a very popular time so I would encourage you to make your reservations as soon as possible as you are able to book now for a trip scheduled for this December.

    There are many options for Resort hotels with kitchenettes and full kitchens. I did a quick search based on your check-in date and currently there are Family Suites available at Disney's Art of Animation Resort as well as Disney's All-Star Music Resort. The Family Suites sleep up to 6 adults and have a kitchenette.

    Another great option might be the Deluxe Villas. 1 bedroom villas sleep up to 5 and 2 bedroom villas sleep up to 9. They have a full kitchen and washer and dryer. The villas are very spacious and will make you feel like you are celebrating the holidays in the comfort of your home (but with the magic of Disney)! 

    While reservations can be made online, because of your party size, you might want to call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936. The Cast Member will be able to provide you with information regarding your options and which Resort hotels have available rooms/villas to accommodate your party. At the time of booking, you will guarantee your room(s) with a deposit and then pay the balance later.

    Once you have your Resort hotel reservations made, the fun will continue as you plan the remainder of your vacation. Be sure you have your My Disney Experience account set up and link everyone in your traveling party. As your vacation approaches, you will be able to make dining reservations and FastPass+ selections.

    I am so excited for you and your family. Christmas at Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect way to share your holiday. Have a magical time!
