    Hi! We´re from Costa Rica, and we want to make a reservation for January. If I book our package today and then Disney comes up with a winter offer, do we also get it although we had already paid some money in advance? Thank you!

    Welcome back, Karla! 

    January is a fantastic time to visit Walt Disney World® Resort, I'll be there during this pleasant time of yEAR as well. The weather is usually quite comfortable and crowds are generally lower than during peak travel times. 

    Modifying your reservation should a special offer become available is totally doable! I have had a few occasions where I booked a vacation to make sure I had a "home" reserved and then modified my reservation when a special offer was later released that included my travel dates. However, there was one time I did have to switch my resort hotel because my original resort was not included in the discounted room rates. Here are the steps to follow should a magical offer become available for you, too! 

    • Keep an eye on the Special Offers tab on the Walt Disney World® Resort website. This is where any discounts available are announced. You can also select the highlighted link to check out the current offers.

    • Should the special offer include your travel dates, act fast to modify your original reservation! Discounted room rates are limited. You can have your reservation modified by calling 1(407) 939- 1936. 

    • If you are using a third party or a Travel Agent to handle your vacation, make sure they are aware you would like your reservation modified should an qualifying offer be released. 

    • Any dining reservations you've already booked will not be affected by the change. 

    I hope this is helpful, Karla! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any additional questions you may have. I am here to help as we both plan January vacations to the most magical place on earth. 

    Happy Planning,
