    Hi! Can you tell me what the dates are for value season at the resorts for 2018?

    Hi Erika,

    Thank you for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let me help you with some tips and hints to plan THE BEST vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.

    I am all for saving Disney Dollars, and friends and family always ask me about when is the best time to visit. Mickey always helps us with amazing Special Offers throughout the year, so my answer is "whenever is best for you."

    Disney Resort Hotel rates vary depending on the season and time of year. Some hotels may have slight difference too. In general, the value rates are in January and February, except for holidays and special events like Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. Other times, when rates are lower, are around Labor Day, and on most of the fall, until early December. Our friends at mousesavers.com keep a comprehensive list of rates; however, you should be aware that these are subject to change at any time.

    One last tip: once you book a reservation, you would lock the rate in place. My suggestion is to book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, which only requires a small deposit, and final payment just due 30 days before arrival. Happy planning!
