    We are a military family of 11. (not DVC members) Would it be cheaper to try to reserve a 3 bedroom villa at Animal Kingdom Lodge without a military discount or 3 separate one-bedroom villas with the discount for 3 nights?

    Hi Shari,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. It’s always a pleasure to help another military family, and I’d like to thank your family for your service to our country.

    I love visiting Walt Disney World with my extended family, and we often book Deluxe Villa accommodations using the military promotion to maximize our budget. There is something so special about being all together in the Villa setting – it means story time with aunts and uncles, pancakes with Grandma, and cards around the dining table late at night. We’ve made so many magical forever memories.

    Shari, your best bet for researching prices is to call Reservations at (407) 939-1936. Military discounted rates are not available to view online; you must speak with a Cast Member. Inventory is limited under the military resort room promotion, so my advice is to call sooner rather than later. You may find that you’re not able to find three one-bedroom Villas available during the same date range, and availability is very limited for the Grand Villas. You might even want to consider a two-bedroom Villa and one standard room; you could still all hang out in the kitchen and living area of the Villa, and then head back to the standard room at bedtime. In the past, I’ve compared the military rates with non-military promotional rates – depending on your travel dates and other factors, there’s a chance you can find better deals outside of the military promotion. The more flexible you can be, the better chance you'll find the perfect set-up!

    I’m wishing you much pixie dust as you look for resort availability and begin to plan your vacation. Please come back and see us if you have any further questions as you continue with your planning and Disney dreaming!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
