    We are planning a trip to Walt Disney World in April 2022. Our home resort is Aulani. Can we make a reservation in September for our April trip? When we book through dvc can someone assist with tickets and reservations?

    Hello, Jennifer and “welcome home!” It’s great to have you hEAR at planDisney.

    As a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member, I’m happy to talk with you about booking a Disney Vacation Club Resort at Walt Disney World! Since your “home” resort is Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas you are able to start booking other Disney Vacation Club Resorts 7 months prior to your desired check-in date… which would be in September of 2021 if your target vacation month is April of 2022.

    Jennifer, because we can’t predict availability (and to maximize your chances of getting your desired resort and accommodations) I encourage you to calculate the exact date your booking window will open based upon when in April you’d like to check in and log into your Disney Vacation Club account before 8:00 AM EST on that date.

    If for some reason your desired resort isn’t available you are able to “waitlist” an unavailable property in case a room opens up.

    I hope this information is helpful as you're planning for your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Whether you surround yourself in the warm wood of the Pacific Northwest, enjoy a European-inspired getaway, kick back Key West style or anything in between, I hope you have a pixie dusted stay.

    Come on back to planDisney with any other questions and we'll be glad to see you again!
