    I am planning a May 2014 trip to stay at WL.. We have not made reservation yet and were really waiting to see if a special came up to apply. If I reserve and a special comes up with Disney apply it? Also how often do the resorts sell out of rooms?

    Hi Julie!

    Congratulations on your upcoming vacation at Disney's Wilderness Lodge,which is my favorite Disney resort!You can book your reservation now and apply any special offer that may become available at a later date.You'll will just need to contact your travel agent or call (407) W-DISNEY to have this discount applied to your reservation.Just remember that with each discount only  a certain amount of rooms at the resort will be eligible for the discount. If you have a particular view or room type that your heart is set on, make sure to call as soon as possible to add the special offer.Often standard rooms will be the first to fill up for each special offer, leaving more expensive options available.Be sure to check Walt Disney's World's Special Offers page in order to keep up to date on all the latest discounts and specials.

    I actually just did this very thing for my reservation at the Wilderness Lodge for Disney's Free Dining promotion.I did have to upgrade my room type as the standard rooms were all sold out for this discount, but it was no problem adding the discount to my reservation.The discount will be deducted from your balanced owed, unless your trip is already paid in full, then you can receive the difference or used as a room credit when you arrive.

    While Walt Disney World resorts do not completely fill up often, unless you will be visiting during a busy time of year such as Christmas week, more desirable room types sell out first.  At each resort you have the option of a standard room, after that there can be many different types of rooms with concierge, views, locations or themes.Lower price rooms sell out first,normally you will see the standard rooms fill up more quickly.  

    Thank so much for visiting us at Disney Park Moms Panel!  If you have anymore questions, please don't hesitate to visit me again!

    Best Wishes!
