    I am planning our first Disney trip for early 2019. When are discount resort rates announced for Disney visa card holders?

    Hi Heather,

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about discounts! With a large family, I'm always keeping my eyes and ears open for great deals, and as a Disney Visa cardholder, you're often eligible for some great discounts!

    While discounts are never guaranteed, I can tell you that last year, it was October 3rd when room discounts became available for Disney Visa cardholders who were traveling January - early April. The year prior to that, discounts were offered during that same travel season on September 28th for Disney Visa cardholders. I'm sending some pixie dust that sometime late this month or early next month, another great deal will be offered for you! Be sure to keep an eye on the Special Offers, Deals, and Discounts page for any new special offers!

    Dates were recently announced for the 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Arts, and it looks like your trip will fall during this wonderful event. That's great news for you, because this event is so much fun! I'd definitely encourage you to take advantage of some of the delicious food, spectacular performances, and gorgeous displays of artwork. My husband and I enjoyed an anniversary getaway during this event last year and absolutely loved it!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your visit, Heather, and have a truly magical vacation!
