    Hello Hoping to visit WDW October 2021. Looking to stay on WDW property but the options to book are very limited, seems to be pop Century or delux villas. Is this because many hotels are closed still due the pandemic? Will any more be opening up?

    Hello there, Amanda! Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop back by and asking another wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question! 

    Staying with the Disney Resorts Collection is a perfect way to add a pinch of pixie dust to your vacation! My family and I love staying at the various resorts due to the world-renowned customer service we receive and the amazing attention to detail. Additionally, you can look forward to a variety of perks that are exclusive to Guests staying with the Disney Resorts Collection! Some of these include closer proximity to the theme parks, complimentary transportation across the property, advanced access when booking dining reservations, and much more! 

    If you are interested in checking out the re-opening timeline for the various Disney Resort hotels, you may do so on the “Disney Resort Hotels: Know Before You Go” webpage! Here, you can see which resorts are completely open at this time as well as projected opening dates for all other resorts. 

    You also just so happen to be planning your visit right after the beginning of The World’s Most Magical Celebration! Beginning October 1st, Walt Disney World Resort will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in the most magical way possible! This 18-month event will include the debut of all-new attractions, transforming the theme park icons into Beacons of Magic, and adding a bunch of EARidescence to the entire resort! 

    Since this magical celebration is beginning right before your intended travel dates, it is very likely that there is limited availability due to the occasion! Many different Guests are planning on visiting for the beginning of this event so some Disney Resort hotels may be completed booked at this time. I would highly recommend continuing to keep an eye on availability as it can change over time, though! 

    I hope you are able to plan a practically perfect visit to Walt Disney World Resort later this year! Be sure to let us know if we can provide any additional information along the way!
