    This forum is a big help!! I am planning a trip to WDW 11/29 - 12/7/09 with my husband ,2 children 4 and 2 and my parents. When is the best time to book rooms with the best deals? I was looking at PO or WL? Our 2nd trip, 1st for kids and parents!

    Hi Laura - as far as I know, promotions for your timeframe, if any, have not been announced.  My favorite two places to keep an eye out for vacation dicounts are and  (I also recommend signing up for the mousesaver newsletter.)

    What I usually do when I know my travel dates are firm is I go ahead and make my reservation.  I do belong to AAA so sometimes I'm able to get a discount through them.  If promotional discounts become available at a later date, I update my reservation to include the discount.  Sometimes this requires canceling the first reservation and rebooking but it's not much of a hassle - especially when you are saving money!

    Happy planning!  Diane
