    I’m trying to book a hotel stay in the resorts. Which resort have the best deals. I’m confused. The days I want to stay have availability to the park but I can not reserve. I will like Monday May 10 until Wednesday May 13. 1 park admission per day.

    Hi Natalie!

    Welcome to planDisney! Well, let's get this trip to the Walt Disney World Resort planned so you can book it!

    I wish I had the power to spread that kind of pixie dust in the reservation process! While I am delighted to help you plan some magic, you will actually need to make reservations online or call a Cast Member to assist with the actual reservation process. It sounds like you may be having trouble reserving park passes because you have not yet booked a vacation package with theme park tickets. We need to get that booked first and then you should be able to reserve those park passes!

    Once you click on that vacation package link that I noted above you will need to input your travel dates, select your resort hotel, and then select your theme park tickets. At some point either before or right after booking your vacation package, you need to create a My Disney Experience account. After you book that vacation package, you will get a confirmation number. Take that confirmation number and link it in My Disney Experience. Once your vacation package is linked in My Disney Experience, then you can make your Disney Park Pass system reservations. 

    I did double-check the theme park availability calendar and it does look like there is park pass availability for the dates of your visit. Just double-check that availability once more prior to booking. If you have not selected a resort hotel, I have a few suggestions. My family loves Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Contemporary Resort because are within walking distance to Magic Kingdom. We also adore Disney's BoardWalk Villas because we can walk to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios from there. Disney's Pop Century and Disney's Art of Animation resorts are also super cute because we love taking the Disney Skyliner and those resorts usually are a bit more budget friendly.

    As you make your plans, also keep an eye on the operational updates since policies and procedures could change. And, as soon as you book that vacation package, make some advanced dining reservations. Restaurants get booked quickly since Guests can make reservations 60 days in advance. On our most recent visit, we also used Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering a few times. Just check the pickup times well before you want to eat since there could be a fairly long gap between your order time and the first available pickup times.

    Natalie, I am super excited for you as you plan an Incredible Disney visit!

    Magic and memories,
