    Hello. I’m trying to plan a WDW trip in 2019. Like everyone I’m trying to get the most for my money. So I was looking at the week of April 28, 2019 or May 5th. Do they normally run promotions around a holiday? I Want to utilize a promotion.

    Hi Courtney,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Like you, I love a good savings!

    Although we cannot say for certain what discounts will appear for the dates of your trip, I do suggest that you check the Special Offers page this year. Review the current offers that might be applicable for similar dates. When I plan, I use the prior year's pricing as a guide to help me plan for the following year. Although I know prices may change, it helps us to start saving!

    I also compare prices across different special offers. Although I have kept an eye on Free Dining offers, they have not always been the best value for my family in prior years. We also prefer certain resorts and room categories. Since I want to be sure we get our preferred resort and room category, I typically check prices for a few months, then make a reservation. If a special offer is released after I have made a Magic Your Way Vacation Package reservation, I will call to speak to a cast member at 407-939-5277 to request if the special offer can be applied to our package. Although not always applicable, I always check!

    Courtney, if you wait until a special offer is released before making your reservation, you may miss other important booking windows - we always make our dining reservations 180 days in advance and, since we stay at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, our Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
