    I will be planning a trip to WDW in July or August of 2013. When is the best time to start planning? Are there any good deals that I should look for? This will be the first trip for my 4 and 5 year old. Any tips?

    Hi Sheryl - Pricing for 2013 packages should be available later this summer.  Personally, I'd probably start planning a summer of 2013 trip in early 2013.  That way, you can be sure of your dates. 

    If you do book a trip and a deal is later introduced, you can call to see if the deal can be added to your package.

    Don't forget to book dining as soon as possible to the 180 day window, so you can make sure you get exactly what you want.

    Good luck!  Have a great vacation!
