    We are planning a WDW vacation for sometime fall 2018. Thinking maybe late Sept/Oct or mid Nov. When do you suggest booking? Is there a time when specials or discounts come out? Don't want to book too early and miss out on a deal!

    Hi Stefanie!

    Fall is a great time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! The decorations are beautiful, fun events like the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival take place, and special ticketed festivities like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (September and October) and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (November) are available on select nights. There is so much to see and experience that you really can't go wrong with a visit during this time of year!

    Special offers for the fall typically come out any time between late-spring and late-summer. With that said, I usually book my vacation well before that to secure the dates and resort hotel that I prefer. This also ensures that I can take advantage of booking my Advance Dining Reservations 180 days prior to check-in, for our entire resort hotel stay, up to 10 additional days. This is really beneficial when it comes to snagging those hard to get reservations like dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant or an early breakfast at Chef Mickey's. After you book your trip, keep an eye on the Special Offers that come out. Once you see an offer than pertains to your vacation, call (407) 939-5277 and speak with a Cast Member. They can work with you to see what offer works best with your existing reservation and apply it from there.

    Enjoy planning your fall vacation, Stefanie!
