    I would like to take my son for his 6th birthday in February 2016. When will prices for Feb 2016 be out? Thanks!

    Hi Greta! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Nothing excites me more than a fellow Mom that is chomping at the bit to start planning their Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    In my experience, Disney room and package rates are typically released during the middle of summer of the year before you are planning your vacation. So if Disney stays on the schedule that they have been on, that would mean that the rates for 2016 should be released in late July or early August. I will say that I don’t have actual confirmation of these dates; this is just coming from speculation and my experience.

    One thing to note is when the prices are released these are the prices without any discounts. I always suggest keeping an eye on special discounts and incentives that are released later on in the year. There is no guarantee that there will be discounts but it never hurts to keep checking. I have found free dining or room rate discounts in the past for my trips. If you book your vacation and then a discount is released, you can call the Walt Disney World Resort reservation line and they will check to see if they can apply the discount to your reservation.

    I hope you have fun planning your son’s sixth birthday celebration! Please come back and ask us any other questions that you have! I hope you have a pixie dusted trip!
