    Is there a calculator to help determine date upon which I can make a booking? I want to book at my home resort for a stay beginning July 7, which isn't available just yet. How can I determine the correct date when July 7 will be available? Thanks!

    Hiya, Lisa!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney! Don't you love the benefits of being a Disney Vacation Club Member, Lisa? As a DVC Member for over 20 years, our family has been granted the wish our hearts made of affordable family vacations year after year.  One of the most exciting days each year is when we are able to book either our Home Resort at Disney's Wilderness Lodge or at one of our other favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts.

    Lisa, you can book your Home Resort beginning 11 months from your check-in date. There is indeed a date calculator on the Disney Vacation Club website where you can enter the check-in date for your vacation, and it will calculate when you can make your booking.  I plugged in your date of July 7, 2024, and the calculator worked its magic to tell me that you can book your Home Resort beginning August 7, 2023. You can find that information here. 

    The calculator will also tell you when you can book other Disney Vacation Club Resorts based on this same check-in date (beginning seven months prior to your check-in date), as well as booking windows for other Disney Destinations.  It's like your very own magic wand ready to help you make your vacation dreams come true!

    I hope this helps you, Lisa. If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, stop back and see me and I'll be so happy to help you.  

    See ya real soon!
