    Help! Trying to book one of the All Stars or PC/AOA for Feb 2024 for last minute family trip from New Zealand. No availability offered on Disney booking site, please tell me they're not all completely full?? Please :)

    Hello Maria! 

    Welcome to planDisney! I love that you consider a trip intended for February 2024 as "last minute!" My friend, you are not too late! There are room bookings still available but it does require some flexibility. 

    I searched for an arrival date of February 1, 2024, and found that Disney's Art of Animation Resort is the only Value Resort with availability but only for the Family Suites. The Family Suites have two full bathrooms, a kitchenette, and can sleep 6 adults. It is worth considering if you have a larger group traveling with you. However, if I just changed my arrival date to February 2, 2024, which is a Friday, I find availability for Disney's All-Star Sports Resort and Disney's All-Star Movies Resort! If your flights are booked and you are set to arrive on February 1, 2024, with no wiggle room, I suggest you either book a Family Suite for your entire stay or book a "split stay." A split stay is when you stay one night at one Resort and then spend the rest of your trip at another. The split stay option lets you enjoy the best of two lovely Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. It's also not that stressful when you know that Bell Services at the Resorts can facilitate the transfer of your luggage between Resorts. Check into your first Resort to rest and have fun. Then drop off your luggage when you check out the next morning for it to be delivered to your second Resort. You don't have to wait for it but spend the day in the Parks or shopping at Disney Springs. Come back at the end of the day and find your luggage at Bell Services at your new Resort. They can deliver it to your room as well for a small fee. 

    Guests visiting from New Zealand are always directed to book through a travel agent which I strongly suggest you do. They can help with figuring out room availability and how to navigate booking a split stay if that is what you wish to do. Let them do all the work! 

    I do hope you get a chance to book the right Resort or Resorts that you want. It's a great time to visit as you will still be able to enjoy the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts which ends on February 19, 2024! It's a lovely Festival that runs for such a short time that I hope you get to enjoy it. I loved experiencing it this past year as the food was not only delicious but works of art!

    I hope you have a lovely time and continue to live adventurously! Let me know if you have any more questions as I would be glad to help!

    Happy planning!
