    If I book my stay now and a special offer discount becomes available later, can that discount be added to my package?

    Hello Celeste!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    A Walt Disney World Resort vacation is more affordable to the prepared. 

    When my wife and I participated in the 2017 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, I booked our stay at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort at the same time as when we received confirmation for the races.  At the time, no Special Offers had been released for that time period and I was paying the standard rate for our stay.  Once the Special Offers came out, I called Walt Disney World Guest Services to request the new rate and saved over $200 on our stay.

    I could have also "Modified My Reservation" through the My Disney Experience Account, but I chose to call instead.

    Celeste, to have the best chance to take advantage of a Special Offer that is released, be sure to keep your eye on the website and to attempt to "Modify Your reservation" as soon as possible.  While you may already have a reservation, Special Offers are oftentimes limited to certain Walt Disney World Resort Hotels and in number, so be sure to act quickly to avoid disappointment.

    It is completely encouraged for you to take advantage of Special Offers when applicable, as long as your current reservation meets the requirements of the Special Offer.

    Be sure to prepare for your 180-day window to begin to book your Advanced Dining Reservations for all of your "must experience" Disney Dining Locations.

    Happy Saving!
