    I am interested in planning a special trip in December 2022 for my sister's 50th birthday. When is the best time to find great deals?

    Hi Natalie! It sounds like you’re planning such a special way to celebrate your sister’s 50th birthday! My family gathered to celebrate my 40th birthday at the Most Magical Place on Earth! We had a blast! Your sister surely will as well!

    Searching for money-saving deals is a great way to begin planning for your sister’s birthday celebration. The Walt Disney World Resort will typically offer seasonal deals. If they are made available, they can be found on the Walt Disney World Resort website. Upon arriving at the website, hover (don’t click) your mouse (computer, not Mickey) over the heading that states, “Places to Stay.” When you do a dropdown menu will appear. Look for the heading that states, “View Special Offers.” Click that! You will then see a menu of all the special offers available for Guests! Special offers for the winter season are typically made available at the end of summer or into the beginning of fall.

    Natalie, I want to share an extra special tip! Sometimes, Guests like to make their reservations well in advance of special offers being made available. If you make a reservation and a special offer is made available after you book, you can always check to see if the newly announced offer can be applied to your reservation! My wife and I have done this (successfully) many times!

    I hope your sister has an amazing 50th birthday! Don’t forget The World’s Most Magical Celebration, honoring the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort, will still be taking place during your December 2022 visit! It will be an extra special celebration for sure!
