    Are there any promotions going on that go through the new year? I would like to plan a 4 day trip that includes New Year’s Day ( my son’s 5th birthday). I was thinking of either flying down on NYE or New Year’s Day.

    Hi Jessica,

    Wow, it sounds like you're planning an AMAZING birthday for your soon-to-be five-year-old! There's no place more magical to celebrate a birthday than at the Walt Disney World Resort, and he's absolutely going to LOVE it!

    While there haven't yet been any special offers announced for the new year, and we never know for sure if or what offers will be made, I'm happy to let you know that Disney Resort hotel discounts were announced last year on September 28th and the previous year on October 3rd for trips early in the upcoming new year. While that won't help you if you'd like to arrive on New Year's Eve to be able to enjoy some of the incredible festivities, that could hopefully help stretch your Disney dollars beginning New Year's Day. I'd encourage you to keep your eye on the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts page for any new offers, and I'm sending some pixie dust that the perfect special offer will come along! That is a rather popular time to visit, so if you'd like to go ahead and make a Disney Resort hotel reservation now, you'll be pleased to know that you can add a discount at a later date if an offer is announced that works with your trip.

    Please tell your Mouseketeer that all of us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel wish him a very Happy Birthday, and I hope that some of these great tips for celebrating a birthday at "The Most Magical Place on Earth" from several of my Disney Parks Moms Panel friends will help make his day one he'll remember forever!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your great question, Jessica, and please come see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
