    I'm hoping there is a glitch of some sort...I just tried to book my dates to stay at Disneyland hotel and its now telling me there is no availability:sad:

    I was only checking on the weekend - all was fine! Now I feel my trip is ruined. How likely is it that the Hotel would be booked this far in advance? Is there any hope?

    I feel shattered :sad1:

    Oh no! I wanted to stay at a Hyatt in November in Orange County and it was booked out too ! I emailed them as I thought I was doing something wrong or they had a issue their end - but it turned out that a conference was happening. Maybe send an email and hope it works out.

    Don't freak out yet!!

    This has happened to us when we have been looking things up before too, then a couple of days later things have changed again. :confused3

    Either email them, or even give them a quick phone call, it's worth it to put your mind at ease. They have to have a room for you - you're the mother of TRIPLETS - you deserve anything you want!!!! ;). Good luck!!

    If it is a conference you'll be lucky to get something. And if you do be prepared for hotel crowds especially around the lifts.

    I am trying to locate their cancellation policy. Already burnt by having to pay for changing the dates on my vegas hotel.

    Have been holding off booking here as I read that they offer discounts in Fall. If I can book now and can cancel when/if they offer a discount, then I will.

    Do your dates include Friday the 13th? The Disney Villains special event is on that day and they are expecting quite a big crowd from what I understand. I know the GCVs were booked out on the 12th quite some time ago - it's a popular weekend :(

    Either on the tues when we arrive (that would be ideal!) or the Fri.

    For some bizzare reason half my post went missing!

    I was saying we arrive on the tues 24th. And that I was hoping there would be a Halloween party on during that period.

    Oddly the Touring Plans crowd Calander is only predicting "3" for the 13th maybe once an offical announcement is made, it will change

    Edit. I stand corrected, it has been announced

    If they are really sold out direct with Disney, there may be another way... but it will not be the cheapest of ways.

    You could try with an Aussie travel agent to check Qantas holidays or creative holidays for example. They have rooms available when they are sold out direct. This has happened with me before for WDW. I couldn't get anything, not one room at AKL one year. But I was walking past a flight centre and went in to see if they could get one for me. Not only did they get one for me, but they got one for my mother too! So they must have some rooms set aside for the different wholesalers around the world.

    So... you would be paying more than booking direct. But if you had your heart set on DLH and couldn't get anything through Disney, you could try an Aussie TA :eek::rolleyes1

    Have you tried Expedia? I just had a look and they have availability from the 24th.

    Thanks everyone. It seemed to be ok now. I am in the process of getting quotes done through an agent now.

    From what I have read, they seem to be priced the same as booking through the Disney website package.
    However, the advantage (I believe) is that if any deal comes up, they can apply it. I thought I would book through an agents I take advantage of this. Knowing me, I will probably miss the discount announcement or it will be booked out during the time I am waiting.

    Does anyone know if the agents can also book MNSSHP tickets? I'm so afraid of missing out on these as I think I'll only have one chance to go during our stay and I don't want to miss out,

    I know if you are using DU they can book everything for you including MNSSHP and ADRs etc.

    I have just booked our holiday with them again and this time I purchased a Premier Pass through them as part of our reservation. Their new questionnaire (After you make your reservation) even asks shopping tours, site seeing and going to other parks as well as organizing any special events whilst you are there.
