    Hi! My husband and I are trying to plan a trip to DW with our five children either mid Nov. or 2nd week of Jan. Since the prices for next year haven't been released yet is there any way of judging when would be the more affordable time to come?

    HI Rachel! There are a couple of factors to consider when deciding on the time of your vacation based on your budget. Since the 2013 prices have not yet been released, you have no way of knowing if the rates will go up for next year. However, when deciding between the two times consider if you are booking during value season and during peak or off-peak visiting times. Historically, January has had low crowds and the rates are generally lower. January is considered value season. The second week of January is particularly good because the crowds will be low due to everyone going back to the grind of work and school. November is considered fall season, but mid-November is typically more crowded and the rates are higher. Again, without knowing the 2013 rates or availbility of discount packages, it is difficult to advise on the exact rates of each of the times of year, but going on historical data, I would recommend visiting mid-January for the lowest rates and crowds. No matter when you visit, I know you will have a magical vacation! Magically, Stacy
