    Why is there no available for Animal Kingdom Lodge in early November

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Cheryl!

    While planning a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth fills me with joy, it also can be a daunting task especially when you can't find the availability your heart desires, so let's chat about your conundrum. Cheryl, there could be a few reasons for lack of availability, so let's go through them one by one.

    First, depending upon your traveling party, it's possible the room occupancy at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge does not accommodate your family (or friend group). For example, all of the standard rooms have a maximum occupancy of 4 people, so if you have a group of 5, only suites would be an option.

    Second, with the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort kicking off October 1, 2021 (including the celebratory perks), November is shaping up to be a popular time to visit this fall. It is possible that the dates you're hoping to visit are fully booked at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Now, Cheryl, you might now be wondering what you should do. My best recommendation would be to decide if your priority is to stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge or your priority is the travel dates you have selected. If your heart is set on sleeping near the savanna, I would encourage you to branch out in your search of dates. If you would be interested in exploring other Disney Resorts Collection hotels, the easiest way to see availability would be to start HERE and put in your travel dates to see all options around the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I'll be wishing on a star for you that you're able to build a Magical trip. If you have additional questions, please come on back to planDisney where we love to help guests even more than Cruella Devil loves fashion.
