    Hello, I'm thinking of planning a Disney vacation in July 2023 and want to open it up to allow other family and friends to join us. I'm a little lost as to where to begin in planning process but I think a good place to start is with the hotels.

    Hi Kyra!

    I am so excited that you are planning a vacation to Walt Disney World with your friends and family! You are smart for kicking off the planning process now, as you can get all of your ducks in a row on the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you want and the experiences you want to enjoy on your vacation! 

    You can begin booking your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation 499 days in advance by calling (407) 939-1936. When you book a resort-only reservation, you can add the theme park tickets and upgrade to a package at a later date.

    I have a few recommendations for Walt Disney World Resort Hotels that I think will work great for you. 

    Consider staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, as they have family suites that offer so much room for large families. The room can sleep up to six adults and has a living room, bedroom, kitchenette, and two bathrooms. 

    Another option is to request adjoining rooms. I personally love Disney's All-Star Movies Resort. Just make sure to put in the request for adjoining rooms when you book and note the friends and family that you want to be located near. You will also want to make sure that you all book the same category of room. For example, at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort, the Toy Story section is a preferred room. Therefore, if you want to stay in this section, make sure all of the Guests in your party book a preferred room.

    Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements about special offers coming in 2023!

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with as you plan your vacation!

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
