    Want to book my hotel res. soon to take advantage of ADR 180 + 10. But no deals yet. If I book a package and a room only deal comes out, can I apply this discount to my package? Or is it easier to just book a room only now and add tixs and dining later?

    Hi Kelly!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question.

    There's no real way to know what fantastic offer Disney will offer next or what resorts or time periods it may cover. What I always recommend is to book the Resort and Package you're comfortable with in terms of price and date. That way, if a special offer doesn't become available for your travel dates, you'll still enjoy the great vacation you had planned and budgeted for, and be able to reserve your dining as soon as you hit that magical 180-day mark.

    Then, keep an eye on the Walt Disney World website's 'Special Offers' section often!
    If a new offer comes out, call (407) 939-7675 and mention that you have an existing reservation and would like to switch to the "such and such" offer. The Cast Member will advise you of availability under the offer and can even help you compare to determine what's best for you! The offer may vary by resort level in terms of which properties have availability, what discount is available or what 'free' add-ons such as dining are being offered.

    I hope you'll visit again soon with any additional questions you may have.
    Wishing you a very Magical time planning your Walt Disney World vacation Kelly!
