    I want to book a vacation in December. But I'm wondering if any specials will open up AFTER I book my vacation? Like what if free dining or a % off hotels comes available? Will they apply that deal to my vacation if I ask? Or should I just wait?

    Hi Amanda,

    Let me tell you exactly what I do for our own vacation to WDW.

    First, I almost always pre-book my hotel so that I know there will be availability at that resort for our vacation dates.

    Then I watch for Special Offers. If an offer coincides with our vacation dates and hotel choice, I call 407-W-DISNEY and ask to see if the offer can be applied to my reservation. This includes specials for free dining or percentage off deals. Offers are sometimes limited so it's best to call as soon as possible. If available, the discount will be applied to your existing reservation.

    You must ask for the special offer to be applied as it won't be done automatically. December can be a busy time of year, especially at popular resorts such as the Wilderness Lodge. I would book at least a room only reservation now.

    Let me know if I can help any further. I'm happy to help with your vacation planning!
