    Hi there, I'm trying to book Disney's Grand Californian for Nov or Dec 2023, but it's coming up unavailable? Does anyone know why that would be? Thanks so much

    Hey there, hi there, Ania! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    I'm so excited to see you here! That means you have a magical adventure at The Happiest Place on Earth during the Disney100 Celebration on the horizon. And with a fabulous stay at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa?! Pure pixie dust! With its comfortable elegance, incredible dining options (Napa Rose was my absolute favorite dining experience of my entire holiday!) and location within steps of Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District, it's the perfect home away from home right in the middle of the magic. Now, let's chat about getting you there!

    Typically, if your Resort Hotel room search is showing "unavailable," this means that there is no availability for those dates at that particular Resort Hotel. The system that Guests search works out of live inventory, so you should see exactly what is currently available. In this case, I suggest searching for alternate dates or searching your desired travel dates often. Guests' plans change all the time, so you never know what may become available.

    While I don't know your exact travel dates, I did just find availability at the Grand Californian for some dates in November and December. So, I recommend clearing your internet browser's cache and trying again. This always seems to help the websites I visit run better and faster. If you don't know how to clear your cache, a quick internet search should be able to walk you through it!

    If you are still having issues booking your magical stay and are trying to book from Australia, I recommend contacting your Travel Agent to assist you with booking your oh-so-magical holiday. Let's get this planning party started, Ania!

    I hope this helps, Ania, and I'll be wishing upon an evening star that you book the holiday of your dreams! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in planDisney!

    Blue skies and sunshine,
