    Hi! Trying to book a wdw hotel for October 2017, a lot of weeks are completely sold out, would anyone know why or any tips on how to book? Thank you!

    Hi, Chloe!

    I booked a room for October a few weeks ago, and noticed the same booking situation, with many rooms sold out. I guess everyone wants to visit Mickey Mouse this fall! I was able to book, but had to move my dates a bit. If you can be flexible at all, try shifting your dates around or change the number of nights to see if that gives you any more options. You might also want to try booking by phone. Call a friendly Cast Member at (407)934-7639 with your travel dates. See if he/she can find you a suitable room, or perhaps even a split stay between two Disney Resort hotels

    Since it seems October is going to be a busy month at the House of Mouse, make sure to make your Dining Reservations and your FastPass+ selections. Having your vacation planned out ahead of time will make everything much easier upon arrival. Start your days early to avoid the crowds, then take a leisurely mid-day break relaxing at your resort's pool. 

    Good luck finding the perfect room for your visit to Walt Disney World!
