    Booked 6/26/13-7/5/13 thinking of changing to 8/1/13-8/10/13. Would the change be worth it? Staying at AOA. Is there more chance for special offers during the August days?

    Hi, Dara!  The biggest difference I see between your two dates is the fact that the June - July dates coincide with the Fourth of July holiday, which can be somewhat busier than the rest of the already busy summer season.  I think if I had to choose for my family, I'd go with the August dates.

    There is never a set in stone schedule for when special offers are made, but if I was a betting woman, I'd go to late August if you were hoping to get some sort of special promotion.  In years past, late August has often been when free dining has been offered, and because crowds are generally lower at that time of year, there's more incentive to get people to visit the theme parks.  Towards the end of summer, people are headed back to school, or gearing up to head back to school, and the crowds are lower than during the rest of the summer. 

    I hope this helps with your planning!
