Exclamation Can all the resorts be booked?

I'm suppose to go Nov 10- 17th. I was nosing around to see how crowded it might be ... so I go on and check resort availability. From the Nov. 10- 13 there is NOT one resort room showing available. Only FW campsites. I called Disney to ask if this was a bug in the system, I was told no.

I'm seriously considering changing our dates. I can't go with it being that crowded.

Can it really be sold / booked solid?

That's a crazy busy weekend. End of Jersey Week, for one.

The PGA is there that weekend. It's also Veterans weekend. My guess is the resorts are sold out for the PGA tournament.

I think there are a lot of non-park things going on that weekend, as well as many people coming and going on Saturday. My guess is that even though the hotels are booked solid, the park crowds will only be moderate to moderately high.

I remember reading that it is a very popular tournament with the families of the pro golfers.

We are also going from the 10th -17th, FREE Dining that week too, might be a factor in the resorts being booked up! Good luck! You're w/in the 45 day window, so maybe some cancellations will open up! Don't stop trying!

I think they already have a room, just checking on how crowded it will be.
