    Can someone explain to me the bounce back plan? We are going on our first ever trip the first week in June and I would love to be able to take my son back the first week of December for his birthday. I would love to see Disney all lit up for the holidays.

    Hi, Jessica! Bounceback offers are a great incentive for Guests to book a return trip within the current year. They are not guaranteed to be offered to Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels at all times, but I will be crossing my fingers that you stumble upon one during your trip! Check the welcome booklet in your hotel room to see is a magical offer awaits you. You can also call extension 8844 from your Resort hotel phone to check on current offers. Guests can usually pick up a slightly larger discount using one of these bounceback offers as compared to regularly published special offers; however, not all Resorts will be included and there will be specific dates that can be booked. Because of this, you may want to have several dates and Resorts in mind for your December trip when you come for your June visit. 

    Remember to not be late for this very important date – you must book a bounceback offer before you check out from your Resort. All that is required at time of room-only reservation booking is a deposit equal to one night’s stay, with the balance due at check-in. If you do need to cancel this reservation, you will be refunded your deposit without penalty as long as you cancel your reservation five days prior to check-in.

    Occasionally, I have seen a bounceback package, which includes room and tickets with optional dining plan. In the case of a package offer, you will need to place a $200 deposit at the time of booking, with final payment due 45 days before check-in. Your deposit will be refunded if cancelled within 45 days of arrival.

    I hope you have a magical vacation, Jessica, and hopefully an even more magical one later this year!
