    Are there waitlists for resorts?

    Hi Julie!

    Earlier this summer, my family was SO determined to book a monorail resort for a fall visit to Walt Disney World, but nothing was available. Each day my husband and I would check the Walt Disney World Resorts page in hopes a room would pop up. After steady and consistent looking, we were able to snag a reservation at Disney's Contemporary Resort. A waitlist would have made this process easier, but currently the only way to book a room is to find one open. Disney is continuing to open up more rooms and people change their plans, so keep trying.

    Members of Disney's Vacation Club do have access to a waitlist for DVC properties- one of the perks of membership.

    I do hope you are able to stay at one of Disney's amazing resorts. These hotels offer free transportation-even to and from the airport- as well as convenience, whimsically themed pools, dorm size refrigerators, and coffee makers. Starting in October, guests at Disney resorts will be able to enter any theme park 30 minutes early.  

    Sending you pixie dust to help you book your dream resort!
