    we have gone to disney at christmas time, halloween, in may and august. When is the best time to go for the absolute best value?

    Hey Margaret,

    You are fortunate to have visited Walt Disney World at so many different times of the year.  The parks really do take on a different feel and character depending on the season, don't they? 

    If you want to snag the best deal on a resort room at Walt Disney World, you want to book at a time of year included in the "value" season.  Typically, the value season includes the following times:

    early January to mid-February (excluding holiday weekends)
    mid-August to late September
    post-Thanksgiving to mid-December

    Among these choices, my personal favorite time to go is early December.  The parks are dressed in their holiday finery and attendance rates are quite reasonable. 

    Always keep your eye on the special offers page on for promotional discounts that are available.  These offers might help you score an exceptional deal on a Disney vacation.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed hoping you find a great vacation package!

    Best wishes,
