    Hi MOMS! Is there a "best time to book?" I'm looking to go with my college friends next May and since we have so much time to book I was wondering if there are deals at certain times of the year? and how soon are we allowed to book?

    Hi Madison! 

    "Best time to book" is really the million dollar question when planning a Walt Disney World vacation!  Guests would like to experience the best of the parks without large crowds and long wait times for attractions, which, if you have a flexible schedule can be done!
    Booking a Walt Disney World vacation during a special offer/promotion is a great incentive!  Special offers range from a room discount, ticket discounts and of course their popular free dining promotions.  It is unknown to those outside the "think tank" as to what the next offer will be, or when it will be released.   Typically, special offers/promotions are offered for late fall, usually September, October, which tends to be a slow period for the parks.  You might also see some promotions for early January/February, as well as early November and December.  Pricing for the 2014 season will be released on July 10th, so you can price out your vacation as well as look at the Special Offers tab on the Walt Disney World website.
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
