    Is it wise to book a bunch of WDW resort reservations to secure a spotfor the opening of SWGE?
    Ive already booked the entire month of October & November to secure my spot at a resort hotel..thinking about booking December as well...

    If you’ve already booked the entire months of October and November, adding December doesn’t seem like too much of a stretch...

    I am glad you asked. I keep almost posting this question but then don't because I don't want to seem crazy lol

    DH and I want to go to check things out a month or so after it opens (he wants to go ASAP but I am not quite that mental) and I am afraid once dates are actually announced rooms are going to be booked, especially short long weekend type trips for others with the same mentality.

    I think I am going to go ahead and reserve an early December weekend and a mid December weekend and hope for the best.

    But reserving for 31 days does not mean you are "holding a spot" during that time, unless you are actually planning to stay for that long. Changing the number of days (as in, removing days) will require a rebooking with a new reservation. Therefore, not saving anything.

    You would need to book several week-long (or however long you would actually plan to stay) and then keep the one you want and cancel the others.

    We just booked Boardwalk Inn for May 2020! We aren't taking any chances - we wanted a water view and with Boardwalk being in walking distance to DHS, who knows if it will get booked up quick.

    But luckily we already know it would be open by then.

    gosh, I would be so nervous!!! I wish they would announce the opening date already, so people can book.

    I would just do it!!! But I would just make a few reservations to cover your bases, using the weeks/days you would actually go. One in October, one in November, etc. Then you can pick which week it is actually open and cancel the others. :)

    In the last year and a half or so they have really eliminated the ability to modify a reservation without rebooking the whole thing (at current rates). Some are able to get exceptions made, but from my reading most don't. You could indeed end up not saving anything when you go to drop time from a 31 day booking.

    It is not that easy any longer. In order to modify the dates you now need have to be available. Most times I woudl say you woudl have no issues, but Late Fall is already getting booked solid, and WInter is as well. I think you are reducing your odds rather than increasing them because the number of open days decreases as time goes on.


    The choices are also reduced. If one attempts to modify an existing reservation from an entire month to say 5 days, those days need to be available. If they are not.....

    I hope it works for you. I am not sure I like the method, and perhaps that is why I am pessimistic, but if it is allowed and it works.....

    Whatever dates you book, those are your dates. Spoken to many many people at Disney, its an advantage.
