    Family vacation package is booked for April 2017. Yesterday Disney released a new room rate discount with one free day of tickets that will save my family close to $600. How do I change our reservation to take advantage of the new offer?

    Hi Tom!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your magical vacation is quickly approaching. How exciting! I am so glad you have asked this question. Disney discounts can be phenomenal. What you need to do depends on how you booked your vacation. If you booked through a travel agent, you will need to contact your travel agent to see if she or he can apply the discount to your reservation. If you booked through a third-party site, you will need to contact that site to inquire about the additional discount. If you booked directly through the Walt Disney World Resort, you may contact Guest Services at 407-939-5277. A Cast Member will be happy to help you. I must add a word of caution based on experience, however. When the special offer involves resort reservations, the Cast Member may not be able to apply the discount to your reservation if your room category is no longer available.

    Last year we were able to get the summer discount applied to our package and we received a magical surprise when the Limited Edition Star Wars "Awaken Summer" MagicBands arrived in the mail as well. We were just as excited about those very cool MagicBands as we were the discount!

    I am keeping my fingers crossed and sending you lots of Jedi power! I do hope you can take advantage of the discount.

    May the Force Be With You!
