    We are excited to consider a trip to WDW for Thanksgiving Because we are hoping to take the whole family, discounts would be great! We would love to book three rooms at Wilderness Lodge - do you know if they offer discounts over Thanksgiving? Thanks,

    Hi, Wendy!  I just love Wilderness Lodge - especially during the winter holidays.  It's got such a homey feel, and when we are at Walt Disney World during Thanksgiving or Christmas, we always have dinner there.

    It is unlikely that you would find room discounts over Thanksgiving.  It is usually a very busy time, and hotels can have no vacancies over the holiday.  If you are not going for the day itself, you might have a better chance, but it's probably going to be tough to find a discount the week of Thanksgiving.

    You might also want to start thinking about Thanksgiving dinner!  Dining reservations can be made 180 days in advance, and a lot of the restaurants will offer special holiday dining options.  You don't want to wait too long to book a special Thanksgiving dinner, as those can become full also.

    Happy planning, Wendy!
