    I have a reservation for 3 adults and 3 kids at the Disney hotel. But we prefer to stay at another Disney hotel but there are no slots. What is the best way to know if a slot opens up?

    Hiya William Emmanuel!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad you stopped by to ask us this magical question, as I personally believe staying at a Disney Resort hotel is a must-do on your Disney vacation. Indeed, what could possibly be more magical than getting Mickey Mouse waffles to start your day?

    The easiest way to regularly keep an eye on Resort hotel availability is to check online. However, since this may differ depending on your location, you may have to call a Disney Cast Member or talk to a local Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. Indeed, I was advised by a Disney Cast Member that it would be best to call them if you do not see the Disney Resort you want on the Walt Disney World website, as there may be more availability that is not visible online. 

    Now, I thought I would recommend some more offerings you can experience to appreciate your time at the Disney Resort hotels! Personally, I always love trying the different restaurants available, as many Disney Resort hotels have popular dining options. For example, some of my favourites include the Grand Floridian Cafe, Boma - Flavors of Africa and Sanaa, but Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera and Trattoria al Forno also have excellent reputations among Disney fans. Speaking of food, one of my favourite treats is Disney's Port Orleans Resort's famous Mickey Beignets, which can be found at the French Quarters, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge's Zebra Domes. Lastly, Disney Resort hotels also offer special activities such as Movie Under The Stars, where you can watch your favourite Disney movies among fellow Guests at the end of the day. For a complete list of activities available, keep an eye out for a sign with a full schedule, or ask a Cast Member at the Front Desk.

    I hope this was helpful, William Emmanuel, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your trip, please don't hesitate to reach back out. We are always happy to help, and I always feel honoured when I get to help fellow international Guests!

    Have a magical day,
