    We are looking to book a Disney Vacation in Orlando between Christmas and New years 2020 or in early Jan 2021. What is the best way to book far in advance and also be able to benefit from deals that will happen in the fall? We are also coming from Canada

    Hi John!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We love to help plan Walt Disney World vacations, and, personally, I love to find a great deal too! It's the best of both worlds!

    The good news is that Walt Disney World can often honor any new Special Offer or discount for reservations which you've already booked. This means you can book your reservation for between Christmas and New Year's Eve 2020 at any time and then apply a discount later if one becomes available and your resort is eligible. While the holidays are usually a very busy time with limited, if any, discounts available, you should always keep an eye on the Special Offers page. You never know when something might come up!

    For your best chance at a discount, you may want to consider visiting in January 2021 which you mention as an option. Prices are normally a bit more economical after the holidays have passed. While these dates are not yet available to book online, they should be available soon. Generally, resorts open for booking in early Summer. If you like to get a jump on reserving your room soon, you can make a room-only reservation now by calling Walt Disney World directly at (407) 939-4357. Room-only reservations are actually available up to 499 days in advance!

    While you're planning your magical vacation, be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog! They often post the latest news about new happenings at Walt Disney World, announcements, and special offers. Plus, they share lots of magical moments to keep us smiling. The Disney Dining posts are my favorite!

    I hope this helps! Be sure to let us know if we can help with any other planning details for your trip!
