    I am looking to book a vacation to Disney around march 12-18th. I need a room for 3 adults and 3 kids. Ages 7,4 and 2. I was trying to book a family suite at the art of animation but it says unavailable. Can you tell me why?

    Hi Kari,

    Welcome to planDisney! It's always my pleasure to greet a fellow North Carolinian!

    I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble booking a vacation package! When I just checked those dates, there was availability for Disney's Art of Animation Resort but availability can change at any moment. I suggest that you contact a Cast Member by phone. Provided you are searching for March of 2022, they can search for your dates and may be able to help you make that reservation.

    The family suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort do sound like they would be perfect for your family! I love this resort hotel, especially the Big Blue Pool. Now that it has access to the Disney Skyliner, it also is a great option for families that prefer resort hotels with multiple transportation options.

    Once you get that reservation booked, keep your eye on the Special Offers since offers are released periodically throughout the year. If a new one is released prior to your visit, you may be able to modify your vacation package to take advantage of it. In the past, I have contacted a Cast Member to secure a new Special Offer. Just keep in mind that packages with Special Offers are limited. Since you need that family suite, I do suggest that you go ahead and book it as soon as possible!

    Kari, take a look at a resort map as well. Use that map to determine what your room request(s) might be and then, if possible, make those requests when doing Online Check-in. When you arrive and receive the notification that your room is ready, double-check the room assigned to be sure it matches your room request(s). When our assigned room has not matched the room request(s), I have called the phone number in the text message to speak directly with a Cast Member.

    Happy planning!

    Magic and memories,
