    Hi Jessica!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    Unfortunately, we really don't know what DIsney will do until they actually do it.  However, it is not out of the question, but based on previous years, it is unlikely in my opinion.  Disney historically knows about how many guests will want to come Walt Disney World in any given time and discounts are released to try to increase the occupancy rate in the Disney owned and operated hotels and in the Disney parks.  Select dates are generally left out of a promotion, because Disney believes they will achieve the occupancy rates they want without any discounts.  However, nobody really knows until Disney announces a change.  Thus I recommend that you keep your eyes and ears open.

    That said, an option might be to cut your stay into two stays.  Basically you would check-in and then check-out of your first reservation and then check-in to your second reservation.  That's easier said than done, however, but it might be an option especially if you always wanted to check out another hotel.  You can have Disney move your luggage from one hotel to the other.

    I'm sorry I don't have a better answer for you, but please write back with more questions!
