    I am planning a trip for Oct 2013 and have been trying to book with a travel agent for an AKL Villa with no luck. When do the villas become available to reserve? There are 3A & 2K we want the Magic our way package is this available with a villa?

    Hi Theresa!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    The Animal Kingdom Lodge is a Deluxe Resort and a Deluxe Villa Resort; it is basically a hotel and a Disney Vacation Club location.  You should have no problem making a room reservation in the hotel part now, but you will have to check back later in the year to make a reservation in one of the Deluxe Villas.  Deluxe Villas are basically Disney Vacation Club properties that are offered to the general public, but Disney first has to figure out what it can offer and still meet the needs of Disney Vacation Club Members.

    The good news is October is a relatively quiet time of year to visit Walt Disney World so waiting a little longer to make a reservation shouldn't be a problem.  It can be more difficult if you are going during a very busy time of year, such as the end of year holidays.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
