    Hi, as a non dvc member how far out can I book a 1bedroom villa at Saratoga Springs (with the free Disney dining plan)? I’m Looking to stay in May 2025. The only accommodation I can see for next year (Jan-April ‘25) are studios?

    Hi Sarah!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    I'm always happy to assist my fellow guests from the UK, and I'm pleased to see that you want to take advantage of the fantastic Free Dining & Drinks offer for next year.

    Generally, as a non-DVC member you should be able to make a Disney Vacation Club villa reservation at 11-months prior to your arrival date.  This is always subject to availability, especially when a special offer is included.  So, for May next year you should be able to make your booking in June 2024.  At Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort, all accommodations are included with the Free Dining & Drinks offer, except 3-bedroom Tree Houses, and 3-bedroom Grand Villas.  I recommend you call the Walt Disney Travel Company International on freephone UK number 0800 169 0730 to confirm the date you can make your reservation, and that 1-bedroom villas are included, then you can be ready as soon as they become available.

    I wish you luck with this because Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort is in such a great position for visiting Disney Springs - you can walk across, or take a lovely boat ride.  There are so many restaurants to choose from - Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' is one of my favourites, mostly for the Hummingbird Cake, if I'm honest, but the entire menu is delicious and it's in a delightful position on the waterfront!  I also love stopping by Earl of Sandwich for breakfast, or Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop for some of the best coffee at Walt Disney World (in my opinion) or a fabulous ice-cream sundae.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions, or you can send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World!
