    Our family is planning a trip to Disney in December 2010. Would it be better to go the 1st or 2nd week of December? Also, does Disney tend to run any discounts during December? If we book now, but they offer a Dec. discount later, can we still obtain it?

    Hi Jessica! Based on the dates you have mentioned and since Disney has extended their Free Dining Offer, I would go either Nov. 27 – Dec. 2, 2010 or Dec. 10 – Dec. 16, 2010. Even though the offer is valid until Dec. 21, Value (slow) season ends on the 16th.

    Technically, November 28-December 16, 2010 is considered "Value Season".  Early December is one of the best times to visit Disney because the Parks are decorated festively and the crowd levels are quite low. For the most bang for your buck, I recommend that you choose dates that fall in the Free Dining window.

    If another (better) offer comes out, you can always call to switch to that one instead (based on availability). Honestly though, the Free Dining offer is hard to beat.

    The number of vacation packages available with the Free Dining promotion are limited and are subject to availability. The package includes accommodations, and a minimum 2-day base ticket in addition to the dining plan. The package must be booked by 08/14/10.

    Hope this helps and that you have a wonderful vacation! I personally love Disney during the Holiday season,
