    Hey Lori!

    I love that you are planning your Walt Disney World vacation so far in advance. We must be kindred spirits!

    When using the strategy of pre-booking in lieu of potential discounts, I suggest booking the Walt Disney World resort you really want to be at. For example, if you heart is set on Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, book that. The reason is this: if you book Disney's Pop Century Resort there is a possibility Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort might sell out and you will not even have that as a special offer option. However, if you are already at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort during the special offer window you will not have to worry about it selling out.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions about your planning strategies or any other aspect of your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
