    Hello. I would like to reserve a room at the animal kingdom villas with a savanna view in November 2018. Currently it says they are unavailable. Is this because it's too early? Or are they actually sold out already?

    Jambo Valerie!

    I am so happy to hEAR you are planning an upcoming stay at either Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village or Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House. These gorgeous Resorts are probably the most unique and special places to stay at Walt Disney World. Where else can you wake up, pull back the curtains and step out onto a balcony with expansive views of exotic animals roaming a vast savanna below? You will definitely want to book a savanna view room; it is a can't miss experience, so I am glad to hear this is already part of your plan.

    Unfortunately, Valerie, there is no specific time frame as to when guests can start booking cash reservations for stays at Disney Vacation Club Resorts. While Disney holds a certain amount of inventory for cash reservations at all Disney Vacation Club properties, inventory amounts are constantly shifting and the exact timelines as to when Disney decides to make such inventory available for cash bookings varies. Generally inventory tends to start being released around 11 months in advance. Therefore, you may be a bit early if you are looking for November 2018. I suggest you keep trying over the next few months, but in the meantime perhaps consider making a backup reservation at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, which would provide the most similar accommodation to Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas.

    I'm crossing my fingers for you Valerie, and hopefully with a little faith, trust and pixie dust you will be enjoying your next stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas!
