    When does Disney release their hotel and dining plan deals for fall. We are planning to go in October of this year!!

    Hello Rachel!  If only we had a crystal ball to let us know when Disney will release any special offers or discounts!  Unfortunately, we don't have one, and we here at the Moms Panel find out at exactly the same time you do.  This week,  Disney has released hotel and package discounts for mid August to the last week of September, and also free dining from Sept. 2 - 25.  Whether or not they release any special offers for October remains to be seen.  Typically, offers are released for periods of time when bookings are lower.  During October, there are many special events happening at Walt Disney World, including the Epcot Food &  Wine Festival and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  These are both very popular, meaning bookings will be up and discounts will be fewer.  

    You can always make your reservation, and if an offer becomes available, most of the time you will be able to modify your existing reservation to include the offer.  There are some restrictions and/or penalties if you are less than 45 days from your arrival date.

    I will send some extra good wishes and pixie dust your way that a great offer becomes available for your vacation dates in October.  Good luck, and have a magical day!
