    Hi, I was trying to search the availability of the 3 room Grand Villa but any dates I put in said unavailable. I wanted to see availability and Villa rate for 1 week (6 nights).

    Hi Jillian, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question, my fellow Disney Vacation Club Member!

    I recently had the chance to stay in a Grand Villa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village during last January’s runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and it really was a fabulous experience. 

    Kidani Village is my Home Resort, and I had to make that reservation the moment my Booking Window opened in order to make sure that it was available. That might be why you aren’t able to find any Grand Villa accommodations available for your dates – they’re EXTREMELY popular room types, even though they require a hefty number of points. 

    If you’re looking to see how many points your stay will require, I’d recommend checking the Points Charts for various destinations to figure out how many you’ll need. After that, I’d start a Search for your Travel Dates, with the “3-Bedroom” Villas as your Room Type. Be sure to “Select All Walt Disney World Resorts” if you don’t have your heart set on a specific Deluxe Villa Resort for your stay. 

    You may see that availability is limited for this Room Type during your stays. If that’s the case, click around in the calendars to see whether there is a better week with more availability. Don’t forget that you can always book the room for the nights that are available and then request to be on the Wait List for the nights that aren’t. You may also have more luck if you contact Member Services; they might be able to give you some options you haven’t considered for your upcoming vacation that may be the right fit for you and your party.

    I hope my answer helps you book the perfect accommodations for your next Disney Parks vacation! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions.

    Have a Magical Day,
