    I want to book a trip for Sept/Oct of 2013 online but it won't let me book anything after 12/31/2012. When will i be able to book for next year? Also, if i book a trip and don't do the dining, if a promotion comes out for free dining can i change ressie?

    Hi Michelle!

    This is a great question!  Disney typically releases the rates for the upcoming year some time in the summer.  However, you can call Disney today and make a room only reservation for next year. In the case, Disney charges one night at this year's rate and then updates it later when the new rates come out. A room only reservation can always be converted to a package later. 

    With regards to a discount, Disney never does anything automatically. You would have to call and ask for a discount to be applied if it applicable. There are no issues making a change as long as you are outside the penalty window. Just remember that you can only have one discount at any time; you can not stack them. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
