    Hello, Looking to travel in January and February 2018, last year deals were released in September for that time of year. Does anyone know when it will be released this year and what time they are released in the morning so I can quickly jump on and book?

    Hi Valerie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can see you are planning well and searching for deals!

    All current Special Offers are listed on the Walt Disney World Resort website. As soon as additional special offers are released, they will appear on that webpage. In years past, I have checked the Special Offers page daily looking for discounts for our dates of travel.

    I do have a word of caution, however. If you are looking for a specific resort and/or room type, you may want to go ahead and make your reservation before that room type and/or resort is no longer available. If a special offer becomes available later, you can call and speak with a cast member at 407-939-5277 to see if the special offer is applicable to your resort and room type. If it is and the discount is still available at the time of your call, the cast member can apply it to your reservation.

    Be wary of your time frame also. You definitely want to make sure you have made your reservation before the 60-day Fast Pass+ window opens. And be sure to make dining reservations, especially for character meals. Since dining reservations can be made 180 days in advance, restaurants get booked quickly. 

    Valerie, I wish I had more specific news. Just be persistent and patient! Keep checking for those special offers. In the meantime, also keep an eye out on the Disney Parks Blog for news on the International Festival of the Arts. If it returns in January and February of 2018, I hope you get a chance to experience it!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
