Disney World Not Allowing One Night Hotel Stays Through December

Have you ever felt like taking a quick getaway to Disney World? While some guests stay for several nights, sometimes a short one or two-night stay is just what we need for a little rest and relaxation!

However, booking a one-night stay at a Disney World resort hotel has seemed to get a lot harder!

If you’re currently trying to book a one-night reservation at a Disney World resort hotel, you may notice that there seems to be zero availability! When we spoke to Cast Members about the situation, we were told that one-night stays are currently unavailable for new resort bookings for arrival dates October 9th through December 4th, 2021.

Guests may book one-night stays for arrivals starting on or after December 5th, 2021. At the time we spoke with Cast Members, we were not given an exact reason for this peculiar restriction on one-night stays.

UPDATE: A Cast Member confirmed with us over the phone that DVC members can still book one-night stays with points before December 5th (and beyond), as the limit only applies to cash reservations.

Keep this in mind if you’re looking to book a quick trip to Disney World, or if you’re looking to book a split stay with another resort — you’ll need to book at least two nights at your Disney World resort hotel this fall!

  1. For a desination resort like WDW, this is not shocking in this current climate. Everyone wants to blame Disney, but think about it, they’re hands might be forced here. There’s a labor shortage. 1 night stays require a lot more effort by hotel staff. If you require all stays to last more than 1 night, that reduces the stress on the housekeeping staff.

  2. I’m still trying to book my 7 night stay…and I’m really find it hard to believe that ALL the hotels are booked for Dec15-22. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

  3. This will become the norm…. Just like the fast pass was due to “pandemic”… they are realizing it is another thing they are changing… your room change over aka housekeeping isn’t available due to housekeeping due to pandemic…. We just stayed at Universal studios Sapphire Falls and had housekeeping every single day before noon…. Zero issues… gee wonder why they have the ability to take care of their guests… tired of Disney ripping off guests.

  4. disney is out of control if you only have one day off and wanna go basically they are giving you the big middle finger this is why universal is sadly my new go to we have been disney fans forever no more they need a whole new change from top down all new people

  5. That explains a lot. I’ve been trying for the last two weeks to add on one day at another resort to our week vacation in November. Well, I’m not paying for two nights, so their loss. I have tried really hard to still be Disney positive but it seems they are trying to see how much it takes to alienate everyone.

  6. Must be a lot of people booking one night stays to take advantage of extended evening hours at MK and EPCOT, and Disney putting a stop to that. Wouldn’t be surprised to see this policy extended beyond December 4.

  7. Could it be because housekeeping couldn’t keep up with the one-and-done night reservations during this time frame? Thereafter Disney room rates will increase thus supporting the one-night stay…?
