    We have reservations in Sept. 2016. Before leaving can we make reservations for 2017? Are there any benefits in doing so ? Thanks,

    Hi Nancy,

    So nice to hear that you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort this coming September. A really nice time of the year to visit, and if you happen to go during the second half of the month, you do not want to miss Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Lots of fun, delicious food, and great music.

    Thinking about 2017, ah? Well, that's swell! I'm already planning for next year too. Among the many Benefits of Staying at Disney Resort Hotels, is that typically you will find a Special Offer for you to come back. These are sometimes referred to as Bounceback Offers, are only available to Disney Resort Hotel Guests and must be booked before you check out.

    Most times you may find offers for discounts on the room portion of your stay, but there's been Free Dining offers in the past too. Only Mickey knows what will be available, but you want to look inside the Be Our Guest Guide located in your room. Then simply call the corresponding number or extension.

    One last tip: even though you may not be sure of your dates, remember that you only need to put down a fully refundable deposit. You can always call back to adjust the dates, but be sure you check the qualifying dates and resorts.

    See you real soon!
