    I have 2 villas reserved at home resort.. @ 7 months I'm going to try to get the 2 villas non hime~What happens if, I change 2 villa & there's not the 1 a 2nd 1 in the same resort? 3 generations~I don't want to be in separate resorts

    Hi Denise!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney again for another chat.  My family often travels together as a large, multi-generational party, which is one of the things that makes our Disney Vacation Club Membership so magical –– whether we need a Deluxe Studio for just a few of us or a HUGE 3-Bedroom Grand Villa for the whole gang, our Vacation Points are always there to help up find the perfect accommodations.  How exciting that you're planning a big family gathering for next year –– I have a feeling that there are plenty of pixie-dusted adventures in store for you!

    When I'm planning a Walt Disney World Resort visit well in advance, I always try to use the same strategy that it sounds like you have. Even if I'm not planning to stay at my Home Resort, I always try to book reservations in the 11-month booking window in order to guarantee my reservation and lock in my dates.  Then, once the 7-month window opens, I'm ready to try and modify my reservation, make a Waitlist request, or piece together the perfect split-stay to meet our needs.  

    But with two separate Villas reserved, I understand your issue –– after all, what happens if you modify the first reservation, only to find that there's no availability when it's time to modify the second room?  In this case, I think your best bet is to place a call to those oh-so-helpful Cast Members at Member Services once it's time for you to change Resorts.  While the online booking portal limits you to modifying each reservation individually, Member Services may be able to see more details about room inventory or make changes to both of your reservations at once, helping to make sure that your family can be together throughout your entire stay.  On the morning your 7-month booking window opens, you'll be able to give Member Services a call at (800) 800-9800 beginning at 9 AM EST –– since that's a little later than booking opens up through the DVC website, I recommend setting an alarm and calling as soon as the phone lines open up for the best availability.

    Again, I really appreciate you bringing your question to planDisney, Denise!  If you need more information about your Disney Vacation Club Membership or you think of new planning questions as your visit gets closer, I hope you'll stop by again for another chat!

    See Ya Real Soon,
