    My family and I are planning our second trip to Disney January 2014.... wondering if Disney ever offers the free dining plan during the month of January ..... I would really like to benefit from that as it would save us a great deal of money! thank you

    Hi, Marcie!

    The great incentives that Disney offers from time to time can creep up when you've already planned to be there. Should that be the case for your January 2014 visit, don't worry! Guests who have booked a vacation package directly through WDW can cancel that package (and be credited any deposits) if those vacations are cancelled at least 6 days in advance of arrival. This means that, should you find a deal that includes free dining, you can book the new reservation and have the old one cancelled, which in turn will save you money. :-)

    I tell Guests to book what you know you want, then keep a very close eye on what's  being offered as those dates arrive. This will ensure you a great place to stay at a price you like, while ALSO enabling you to save money on that very same trip, if a deal becomes available.

    Have fun shopping! No matter what you decide, send more questions about your trip. We love to help!
