    I am planning a trip for August 2018, when would be the best time to book and to find the best deals? TIA

    Hi Cheryl! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I always love answering this question because my answer, no matter WHEN a Guest is planning to visit is always “it’s never too early”! Magic Your Way Vacation Packages for August 2018 have already been released and you can book your Disney Resort hotel with a minimum deposit and start the countdown! You can always continue to monitor the Disney Parks Blog and Walt Disney World Resort website for available Special Offers and sometimes, you can apply them to your existing reservation OR you can cancel your current reservation and make a new one very easily! I have actually done this in the past as I like to book my vacation as early as possible and then make monthly payments. Historically, Special Offers for the summer are released between January and April, however this is subject to change. If you happen to use a friendly Disney Travel Agent, they can even monitor these Special Offers for you, and most do not charge any extra for their services.

    Did you know that you can book your Advanced Dining Reservations up to 180 days in advance? Looks like it’s time for you to start planning that magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Cheryl! Remember to come and visit us again as we love helping Guests like yourself make the most of their vacations! See you real soon!
