    Was looking at possibly taking our 2 kids to Disney in November 2013 for my daughter's 5th birthday. I noticed this year they ran a 30% off special in October for November... is this normal.. should I wait to book to see if any discounts will come up?

    Hi Tricia!

    Booking a Walt Disney World vacation with a promotion or special offer definitely sweetens the deal! When we are planning our vacations, we always try to book using an offer as it helps save money when using a room discount or free dining promotion.

    Historically, Disney has offered room discounts for the late fall months of October, November, December. The discount has ranged from 25 % to a whopping 35 % off deluxe rooms. These discounts have been released as early as August for guests traveling during that time period. Keep in mind that there are black out dates applicable, especially those around Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    My recommendation is to book your reservation now, and when a special offer is released for your specified travel dates, call Disney reservations at (407) WDISNEY and have the discount added. They will be able to adjust it accordingly. Make sure you call early as there are a limited number of rooms available under each discount. Keep an eye on the Special Offers page of the Walt Disney World website for further promotions.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation! -Malanie
