    Planning a trip leaving May 30 th. When will they start showing specials. Party of 8. Looks like I'd be better off with 2 rooms. If I don't see a special soon should I book be booking now to assure room availability?

    Hi Staci,
    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    I'm so excited to hEAR you're planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! My general advice is always to book as early as possible to maximize room availability.  You can often cancel and rebook if your vacation dates are included on the Special Offers page.  Particularly with the size of your party, I would absolutely book soon; however, please know that connecting rooms are never guaranteed.

    While you may spend a bit more for some space that will accommodate all eight members of your party, I've always had so much fun when my large party can stay together.  We often make up for the added expense by doing something like having breakfast in our resort hotel room each morning and brewing our own coffee.

    Staci, please come by and visit us again with any questions you have along the way. We would love to help you plan the perfect vacation.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
