    When do the special offers/discounts for the next year(2021) get released? Room only discounts specifically! I'll be visiting in April and am trying to find out if there will be any 20%-25% room discounts during my visit! Thanks for the help!

    Hi Spencer!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your trip planning question! I love your question because I love it when we can save a little money on our Walt Disney World vacation! Of course, I tend to use those savings to splurge on some extra little touches for the trip, but, hey, that's ok!

    Walt Disney World often releases Special Offers throughout the calendar year. Since you're looking to book for next year, you're just a tad bit early for announcements on discounts and savings. Generally, in early Summer, reservations will open for the following year. I'd start checking in about mid-June for online reservations for 2021. Since this year's situation has been so different for travel, it is hard to predict exactly when we'll see Special Offers announced. My best advice is to periodically check back on the Walt Disney World site to see what may have opened up.

    The good news is that Walt Disney World can often apply a newly announced Special Offer to an existing reservation. This means that you can go ahead and lock in your 2021 resort reservation as soon as you'd like to. If you later see a new discount or offer, you can give Cast Members a call at (407-939-1936 and ask about applying it to your room-only reservation. If the resort you've booked is available, they'll go ahead and apply the discount. If not, you can ask about other resorts and make modifications as needed in order to apply the discount. Sometimes flexibility is the key: being open to a different room-type or even a back-up resort choice may mean a substantial savings!

    I hope you love the Walt Disney World Resorts as much as I do! In fact, I think the hardest part of planning a vacation may be deciding which of the incredible resorts to stay at. Our family's favorite is Disney's Wilderness Lodge. We love everything from the location (just a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom) to the grand lobby with the incredible fireplace to dining at Whispering Canyon Cafe. Of course, you really can't go wrong with any resort choice, so don't stress too much! And, the benefits of staying right at Walt Disney World are the icing on the cake. From Disney's Magical Express to Extra Magic Hours to advanced access to FastPass+ reservations,  you'll see the advantages before you even arrive!

    I hope this helps with your vacation planning! Be sure to let us know if we can help with any additional details!
