    Do you know when the special offers for the winter (after Christmas 2017) will be coming out. We would like to book our trip for January but want to wait until the specials are out.

    Welcome back, Cheryl! 

    Thank you so much for continuing to trust us with your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation planning questions. We are here to help you plan a pixie-dusted visit. 

    Like you, I'm always on the lookout for Special Offers, so I'm happy to add my advice on when they're typically released. Generally, there are no discounted room rates between Christmas and just after New Year's - Walt Disney World® Resort's busiest week of the yEAR. However, if you can adjust your vacation dates for after the New Year holiday, you'll find great savings up to 20-30% off on room-only reservations. I often participate in Walt Disney World® Resort Marathon Weekend which is usually the second weekend in January; it's through this experience that I've noticed Special Offers for this time frame are usually released about 90 days out, making mid-September about the time to keep an eye out. Of course, this is based on my personal experience and can always change. Disney likes to surprise us to keep the magic alive. 

    What I like to do to make sure I don't miss out on up-to-date information is to often check the Special Offers Tab on the Walt Disney World® Resort website. Another great source is the Disney Parks Blog, where you'll find all the magic! Just select the highlighted links to catch-up on what is currently available. 

    I hope this is useful in your planning, Cheryl! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I'll be watching along with you for the next round of discounts to be released.
