    When do hotel special prices typically start? I know I can book well in advance over the phone but if I wait until the bookings are available online are my chances better then for special (discounted) pricing?

    Hey there Damian and welcome back to planDisney!

    I see you're trying to get the jump on a February 2023 visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. Trying to soak up some of the last little bits of the 50th Anniversary Celebration, are you? You're a Mousketeer after my own heart. Damian put your mind at ease. You're starting your vacation planning so early that you have more than enough time to modify and tweak your plans until they're just right. Here's what I would recommend.

    1. Vacation packages usually start becoming available sometime in the summer. When they do, go ahead and book the vacation you want: Disney Resorts Collection hotel and Tickets

    2. It would probably still be a bit early for the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts to be offered for February that soon. Traditionally you wouldn't see discounts that include the following year until pretty late in the current year. But it's no problem. If one becomes available later, you can simply call 407-939-5277 to speak with a Cast Member to help you apply it to your stay. I've personally had this happen to me and was able to get some money back prior to my vacation. More Mickey ice cream bars for me!

    Pro-tip: You can book a room-only reservation over the phone 499 days prior to your arrival date(that would be early October for you) and add Tickets later once they're available to be purchased for 2023. You'll have to make this kind of reservation over the phone by calling 407-939-1936. In years past, this wouldn't be necessary due to vacation packages having already been released to the public but it's good to know just in case. 

    Damian, don't worry. As long as you fall within the parameters of the discount you'll be able to apply it to your vacation after it's booked. If you have any other questions, come back for another chat! 

    Happy planning!
