    Hi Kari! We just decided to go back to Disney in April 2014. We will check in April 2. What is the exact date I can book my home resort? Is there a calculator that figures it out or do we just go by by 11 months and book on May 2? THANKS! I can't remember!

    Hi Laurie!!

    So excited for you!!  It's so much fun to plan Walt Disney World Vacations!

    You are ready to go and have everything under control.  May 2 will be the date that you can begin requesting reservations. 

    The Disney Vacation Club team has included an Early Booking Reminder on your homepage when you login to the DVC Member site.  It lists booking dates for home and non-home resorts and has been a great reminder for me.

    For restaurant reservations, you will have an actual 180 day count but for the 11 month and 7 month booking windows with Disney Vacation Club, you just use the check in day and count backwards the appropriate number of months.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions.  April is such a fun time to be at Walt Disney World and I know you will have a magical vacation!!
