    As a non-DVC member, can I reserve a Villa up to 499 days in advance by paying for one night's stay?

    Hi Regen!

    I love fellow advance planners! You are correct that Disney Vacation Club Villa accommodations, like other Walt Disney World resort rooms are available to be booked by the general public up to 499 days in advance. This is based on availability and must be done over the telephone by booking with Walt Disney World directly or by using a travel agent.  At this time Guests are unable do this online. You will be required to pay a deposit in the amount of a one night stay at current prices. Once the prices are released for the date of your stay, you would be required to pay the increased amount of the deposit. If you wish to purchase a package that includes theme park tickets or the Disney Dining Plan, you would need to wait and add those items once the prices for your vacation dates were released.

    I do recommend calling as soon as you are able, especially for popular times and rooms. Be sure to mark your calender for that 499 date mark and get your planning underway! Visit us here on the panel as you have additional vacation planning questions, where we love to help fellow Guests plan their magical vacations.

    Have a Disney Day!
