    Hi there, is there a waitlist for the Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas? I can't see available dates. We're booked April 25th-29th at the Wilderness.

    "Welcome home," Tyler! I'm so glad you dropped by with your question. 

    Tyler, as a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member, I too know the feeling when you're about to start singing "I've got a dream" because you're securing your perfect reservation but then run into a snag as you're booking. But... before you give up on you dream and head over to The Snuggly Duckling, let's talk about Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village and Jambo House.

    First, to check availability, make sure you are logged into your Disney Vacation Club account and begin by hovering over the "Plan a Vacation" tab and then clicking on "book a vacation." You should see a page that says, "Start your search." Make sure as you scroll down you correctly select the resorts of your interest and deselect all others. When I did a quick search this way for the dates you noted I found multiple options still available at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas. While I can't guarantee that availability when you are able to search, I will be crossing my fingers for you! 

    Tyler, if you do not see full availability, there should be a bolded statement indicating you can view rooms with partial stay and waitlist availability. Click on "view other rooms." From here other options should pop up. You can select the dates and accommodations of your preference and then proceed until you see "Waitlist This Entire Stay." 

    Tyler, I hope this helps as you're hoping to switch your current accommodations to Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas. If after following these steps you still are NOT able to view options, I recommend giving a quick call into Member Services

    Best wishes, Tyler, as you're working hard to create a trip that will have members of your traveling party squealing, "Best. Day. Ever." 

    Please come on back and see us with any additional questions,
