    We are going in November 2011. We are going to book through Disney. My question is that once we book, can we take advantage of any "sales" that may pop up between now and then (e.g. Free dining, discounted resorts, etc.).

    Hi Paul!

    Yes, you'll be eligible for any discounts that are released after your initial booking. In fact, your package or room only reservation can reflect further savings right up until your final payment is made. You'll want to watch your package terms for restrictions, however these usually don't kick in until 45 days prior to your trip.

    If you book on your own via phone or online, Disney will not automatically change your reservation to reflect new discounts. You would need to do the research on your own and then call to request the new discount. Usually, all it takes is asking the Cast Member "can you see if code ABC is available for my reservation?". Each special offer will have a booking code attached to it.

    If you want to be informed of all the latest discounts, I highly recommend following and signing up for the monthly newsletter.

    If you want some help with finding the best discounts, utilize the complimentary services of an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. The best part of using one of these specialized travel agencies is that they will automatically get the best discounts for your reservation. Rest assured that when a new discount is released, they will be on the phone that morning changing your reservation to insure the savings for your family!

    Traveling to Walt Disney World is certain to be a memorable vacation! It will be even more magical if you know you are getting the best rates possible!
