One-night stays return to Disney Parks Resort Hotels

In early October this year, Disney World made the announcement that it would suspend one-night stays at its Resort Hotels beginning October 14 through December 5, and we’re happy to announce that one-night bookings are again available at Disney World, should you just be passing through, or only have one night to stay, or if you’re a Guest who loves to sample as many Resort Hotels as possible on your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

The October suspension of one-night bookings at Disney World applied to both online and over-the-phone bookings for one-night room-only stays, but it did not apply to Disney Vacation Club members who wanted to book a one-night stay with DVC points. No specific reason was given for the odd restriction placed on the single-night reservations. While the suspension was in place, Guests could not book a stay unless it was a minimum of a two-night stay (a little like the stays will be aboard Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser).

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
