    Eager for the release of the 2017 packages. Are the deals (percentage off dining and hotels) offered when the next year packages are first released or do they come later? Bottom line, is it best to book when the packages are released or wait for the deals?

    Hi Zach,

    A year away from a magical vacation. Seems so far away, and then again, it seems it was yesterday that I was wrapping up Christmas presents. Time flies!

    Only the Big Cheese knows when the 2017 prices will be released, and as to what, or if offers will be available. Based on prior years, next year’s prices and packages have been typically released during the summer. Offers have been changing in the last few years, but Free Dining (where a Disney Dining Plan is available for free when booking a Magic Your Way Vacation Package) has been a popular offer during the fall. But nobody knows if they’ll continue to be available.

    I always tell my friends and family to plan their vacation as if there would be no offer. Pick date and resort hotel. But if you can be a little bit flexible with changing the arrival dates, or switching to a different resort hotel, when a good offer comes out, take advantage of it. Then simply call a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936 or your travel agent, to make the necessary changes.

    Remember to keep an eye to the Special Offers page. In the meantime, if you have more questions, come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
