    Would the easiest way to book a family trip (7 people in total 3 different rooms) to Disney world be to book via telephone or travel agent rather then trying to book online for each family room?

    Hiya Meagan and welcome back to planDisney!

    I love to see big family trips at the Walt Disney World Resort. My upcoming trip involves 10 people in not only 3 different rooms, but 3 different Disney Resorts Collection hotels. I just went through this confusion so you don't have to! Let me tell you what I did so hopefully it will help you.

    You could absolutely call 407-939-5277 to speak with a Cast Member for help on getting yourselves all booked up. Phone lines go live at 7 AM EST so be up early to be the bird that gets the worm. But y'all can absolutely get everything set up yourself.  What worked for me was delegating the tasks. I'm the major planner for our trip but I designated one person in each room as the "Room Captain" to be in charge of that booking. Each Room Captain is in charge of setting up a My Disney Experience account and the corresponding app and booking the vacation package for their group. We've each made our bookings online and made sure that everything was linked in our separate My Disney Experience apps. Once everything was set, we then linked ourselves together in our Family & Friends List using the QRCodes option. Now we're all set to make plans together.

    Pro-tip: Since y'all are planning so far in advance, be aware that you can make room-only reservations 499 days in advance. You may want to start the process off this way when that time frame becomes available to you. This way y'all will have the best chance of getting the accommodations you want. 

    Meagan, I hope I've been able to help you today. If you have any other questions please feel free to come back for another chat! 

    Happy planning!
