    We are looking to plan a Disney World Trip in September or October this year (2013), when do the package deals come out for that time of year? Thanks Ladies!!

    Hello, Kate! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Fall is my family's favorite time to visit Walt Disney World Resort! There are two outstanding special events held in September and October: Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  

    Right now there is a Walt Disney World Special Offer for resort stays most nights through mid-June. Any special offers for the fall season have not been announced yet, but I recommend keeping an eye on the Walt Disney World Resort website's Special Offer page as deals may appear sometime during the late spring or summer. Another option I would recommend is to work with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner who will be on the look-out for special offers on your behalf and will book your vacation accordingly. 

    I would actually suggest that you go ahead and book your vacation now to "lock in" your first choice of resort, room category and dates. A small deposit is required to confirm your reservation; however, should a special offer come out, you can call Disney Reservations to request that the discount be applied to your existing reservation. Since the special offer is based entirely on availability and the number of resort rooms is limited, I recommend calling as soon as an offer is announced. Also, in order to take advantage of the discounted resort rates or to add free dining, for example, it may be necessary to modify your reservation by changing resorts, room category and, in some cases, your travel dates. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Kate! Please write me back if I can assist you further with your vacation planning.
