    We are planning on traveling for Christmas 2022 with are family! We have about 9 guests. But, how did I get a vacation to include all 9 of us?!

    Hey Raylene! Welcome to planDisney! I see you're thinking of booking a trip to Walt Disney World very soon, and you've certainly come to the right place! I want to be sure to point you in the right direction toward planning the best trip for yourself and your loved ones! Unfortunately, we don't have much time to waste, so let's get going! Your most magical holiday celebrations await!

    First and foremost, think about how many days you'd like to stay and how many days you'd like to visit the Disney Theme Parks. As you may already know, each Guest will need a Park Pass Reservation on each day they wish to visit a Theme Park. Before you finalize your dates, make sure you check the Park Pass Availability calendar, which will let you know exactly which Parks are available for reservation on which dates! Next, once you've chosen dates, think about which Resort Hotel you which to visit! This close to the dates, availability may be somewhat limited. Plus, you may need to split the group into 5 + 4 and book two or even three rooms to make everyone most comfortable. This will depend on room capacity and availability. Check out larger Resorts that may have easier availability, such as Disney's Pop Century Resort, which offers easy access to the Disney Skyliner

    As the head planner, make sure that everyone traveling is listed within your Friends & Family list so that you can make Theme Park Ticket purchases and book Park Pass Reservations for them. Also, download the latest version of your My Disney Experience Mobile App onto your device so that you can plan and prep on the go! And please know that we are here for you every step of the way if you'd like more advice or guidance! Plus, you can always book the entire trip over the phone by calling Disney Reservations. Sometimes it's nice to speak with someone friendly and knowledgeable when you make magic!

    Happy travels!
