    I have booked a room-only at Port Orleans Riverside in WDW arriving on January 8, 2019. I know the package options are not out yet and will likely come out early summer. Are there historically deals for January visits at this resot?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Janelle. I'm so glad you stopped by!

     I love that you're planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation well in advance. I'm an early planner too! (I also enjoy a great deal!) You ask a great question about discounts typically available in January. I did a little digging and it appears as though a dining package and a room discount were offered in January the last two years. Limited packages were released for the offers, but Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside was not excluded from either deal. Discounts for January 2018 were released in early October last year, so keep an ear out for any news this fall. Call (407) 939-1936 as soon as you hear about an offer that applies to the dates of your stay! Keep in mind that there's no guarantee that discounts will be made available, and that you may need to make an adjustment to your existing reservation to take advantage of an offer. I once called to apply a discount to my reservation at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, but in order to get the discount I had to upgrade from a Standard Room to a River View Room; the upgrade still saved us a substantial amount of money, and it gave my family an incredible view of the Sassagoula River!

     Be sure to visit the Epcot International Festival of the Arts during your stay. The art showcases and unique food offerings are fantastic, but my favorite experience is the Disney on Broadway Concert Series! You won't want to miss this special event at Epcot. 

     Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
