    Today is January 1st and I am trying to book a hotel for one night before our Disney cruise in October. Every single hotel in WDW says no far out can a room be booked? Am I too far out to book a hotel?

    Hi Donna,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you're busy getting your vacation plans ready for the coming year. A quick Walt Disney World Resort stay before a Disney Cruise sounds heavenly right now! You are not too far out to book a hotel for your stay. 
    Room-only Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stays can be booked up to 499 days before your arrival day. Vacation packages are generally released in the summer for the following year so 2020 vacation packages were released in June of 2019. 
    Sometimes Stitch gets a little crazy and wreaks havoc on the Walt Disney World website. I think there much have been some sort of glitch when you were checking for a room. When I checked the website just now there was availability across all resort categories, from Value to Deluxe. It looks like you will have a great selection to choose from! I'm not sure which resort category you are hoping for, but I'd like to recommend the new Gran Destino Tower at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I thought the rooms were well-planned and comfortable. 
    Donna, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope as you continue to plan your vacation you will let us know if we can help you with any further questions. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
