    Cecilia from GA Asked

    We are planning/budgeting a getaway in 2022. There will be up to 7 women. We want park hoppers for either 4 or 5 days; dining and entertainment. We want to stay together, perhaps one of the villas. We also want fast passes to the rides/attractions.

    Hello Cecilia and let me offer you warm greetings from all of us hEAR at planDisney! I’m so glad you’ve dropped by with your question. 

    Cecilia, this question is close to my heart as I have a trip planned with five of my best gal pals in just a few weeks, so let’s dive into your vacation planning! 

    Since there will be a total of seven guests in your traveling party, I highly recommend checking out the 2-Bedroom Villas available at most Disney Vacation Club Resorts. My friends and I have a 2-Bedroom Villa booked at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. We selected this resort because of its close proximity to Disney Springs (there is a connected walking path from the Congress Park section) and comparatively to some other 2-Bedroom Villas, this resort was a bit easier on the budget. 

    Cecilia, with so many choices, there is something for every groups’ taste and priorities. If you want quick access to EPCOT, check out Disney’s BoardWalk Villas. If you want a luxurious trip close to Magic Kingdom Park, consider the flagship resort: The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. If your group is made up of animal lovers, you may want to explore Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village, where you can literally have breakfast while watching a giraffe graze the savanna. Cecilia, these are just a few of the resorts that offer a 2-Bedroom Villa option, so I encourage you to browse through the list of options HERE as each has its own flair. 

    Now, Cecilia, if you are NOT a Disney Vacation Club Member booking this villa with points, you can bundle your stay with theme park tickets to create a package, selecting however many days you desire. This is an easy way to manage all of your plans together and I encourage you to create a My Disney Experience account (if you don’t already have one). 

    Finally, Cecilia, since the Walt Disney World Resort continues to operate in a state of phased reopening to focus on enhanced health and safety measures, a few offerings like the Disney Dining Plan and the Fastpass+ system are on pause. While guests are not currently able to secure Fastpasses to any attractions, you are still welcome and encouraged to make advanced dining reservations. Reservations can be made 60 days in advance of your check-in date. After you’ve selected your travel dates and have your resort reservations, I hope you’ll come back and see us hEAR at planDisney with any additional questions. We love to give restaurant recommendations and chat about all there is to do at the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Cecilia, I hope this helps jumpstart your Disney dreams. Whenever you go and wherever you stay, I'll be wishing you a pixie-dusted vacation,
