    Hi, going to Disney next year in May, hoping to stay at either the WL or BC. Wanting to use military discount, should I book now and transfer to the discount if there is one later? Or wait till the discount comes out? Just excited... Thanks

    Hi Darla!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Disney's Wilderness Lodge is one of my favorite resorts at Walt Disney World! I have to recommend that you eat at Whispering Canyon Cafe and while you are there make sure to ask for some more ketchup!

    I always recommend that friends book their Resort reservation as soon as they possibly can! If a discount comes out later that can save you money, you can call and the Cast Member helping you can see if it can be applied to the room type and Resort you already have booked. If it can't, you always have the option to cancel your standing reservation and rebook a new one with the discount.

    If a discount for your dates is not released or it can't be applied to Disney's Wilderness Lodge or Disney's Beach Club Resort, you have the comfort of knowing you have the best possible rate for your resort since you booked it early in advance! 

    While May 2018 is not available to book online at this time, you can call 407-939-1936 to book your room only reservation. This will be the same number to apply a later discount too!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
