    We are looking to book in the summer of 14. Would you wait for a while to book or book now? I don't want to miss a special. Also, what are your thoughts on meal plans?

    Hi Eric!
    You can reserve your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room up to 499 days in advance by calling the Walt Disney Travel Company.  Online reservations and Magic Your Way Packages cannot be booked until the rates for 2014 are released which typically is during the summer.
    To get a jump start,  book a room only reservation and upgrade it to a Magic Your Way package once the prices are released.  To book a room only reservation, your credit card will be charged one night deposit and be adjusted to reflect the new rates once released.

    If a special offer is released after you book, you can call the Walt Disney Travel Company to see if your are eligible for the special offer.The difference will be in price will be adjusted if you are able to take advantage of the special offer.Be sure to check current special offers frequently as they are updated often.  Special Offers

    I love the flexibility of the dining plan, since I like to experience table service restaurants at Disney. If your family likes to eat quickly and play in the parks longer, quick service restaurants might be a better fit in which the dining plan is not the best value.
