    We had our hearts set on staying at Saratoga springs next July but all deluxe villas in this resort are sold out 11 months in advance, is this normal or is the accommodation released in blocks? I don't know whether to look at somewhere else or hang off?

    Hi Claire!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am hopeful that I have some good news for you. It is extremely unlikely that Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is actually completely booked for next summer. As a Disney Vacation Club Member, I am able to check on room availability for Members to use their Vacation Points, and currently I am seeing full availability for Members. When I visit the Walt Disney World Website and try to book however, I see what you are probably seeing, which is that currently the site states that rooms are unavailable. This is likely due to a variety of reasons, but I honestly don’t think you will have difficulty getting a room. It is a very large resort and there is usually a decent amount of availability. 

    It appears you are coming from the United Kingdom, so I imagine booking online is the easiest for you. However, I would recommend you call Disney directly as you may find that rooms at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa are available to book over the phone. From the United Kingdom, you may call to make Resort Reservations at 0800 16 90 730. This helpful phone directory lists some frequently used phone numbers, and includes numbers to use from the United Kingdom.

    If rooms are still not available by calling, I would simply keep trying over the next few months. What is likely to happen is that as Disney Vacation Club Members from Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa book their vacations at other destinations, more and more rooms at the resort will open up to be booked by non-Members. Please come back Claire, and let us know what other questions we can help with as you plan your 2016 Disney Vacation!
