    Hi! I have 2 questions re: booking a vacation at WDW for 10 people. We love the Wilderness Lodge, and we are looking to stay after Xmas 2024. We would like to do the cabins/villas (grand), but 1) when does that open and 2) what is the best way to do so?

    Welcome Robert!  

    I adore that you have this beautiful vision for an amazing holiday stay at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – there's no better resort to get you in the holiday spirit and feel like your large family is on a cozy mountain retreat together. Thanks for bringing your great questions our way; I’m happy to help you see what’s possible to make this dream a reality in December 2024.

    You’ll be pleased to know that you can begin making reservations at Disney Resorts Collection hotels right now! I checked on the Walt Disney World Resort website and you can select dates through January 2025 as of today. You can search across all resorts or search Disney’s Wilderness Lodge site to browse the Cabin and Grand Villa room types meeting your search criteria, or you may call Disney if you prefer to speak with a friendly Cast Member who can look up availability and finalize a reservation with you. Please note that at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort, the Cabins sleep up to 8 adults, whereas the 3 Bedroom Grand Villa sleeps up to 12 adults.

    I stayed in a 3 Bedroom Grand Villa at Disney’s Old Key West Resort with my girlfriends last year, and we adored the additional space that truly made us feel at home. We used the full kitchen and loved to relax together in the large living space in the evenings for laughs and reflecting on the day’s fun. If Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort does not have availability for your dates, I encourage you to reserve any other Grand Villa or Bungalow available for your large party on the dates desired. No matter the destination, you will find incredible accommodations and unique styles to suit your family. You may always change your reservation before next Christmas if your top choice room becomes available or apply a special offer once they become available to a room you’ve already reserved. The holiday season is very popular so please be sure to secure a great room now and then keep an eye on the site for different availability throughout the year as Guests often change plans.  

    There’s nothing like the Most Magical Time of the Year at the Walt Disney World Resort, Robert! Even just after Christmas, there is still so much to see and the glorious decorations around the theme parks and resorts will remain up that week. I love that you’re planning a special large family trip to top off the year – it will surely be a core memory made for everyone!

    Please let us know what other questions you have as you begin to plan this most magical vacation.  

    Wishing you a special stay,
