    How far in advance can you book a DVC villa through WDW? We are not DVC members, but we did book a villa once as non members and I think we had to wait until 9 or 10 months prior to travel. Thanks!

    Hi Kolby,

    Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    The answer to your question is not straightforward.  There are different times at which Disney Vacation Club villas may become available for booking using traditional payment methods such as credit card or cash. So I cannot give you a definite answer in terms of months.  What I can tell you is that I suggest that you check early and often.  As soon as you know when you would like to travel, check if there is availability for your desired resort and accommodation.  Even if there is not availability when you first check, keep checking back.  It is possible that a there is no availability for traditional payment booking at a particular resort at six months out, but that it does become available at two months out.  I suggest that you check this by calling Disney at 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639).

    I hope that this is helpful for you, Kolby.  Have a great time planning your trip, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
