    We were thinking about going Spring Break 2013. When should we start planning, any upcoming deals, ideas for a moderate hotel and any suggestions in general?

    Hello, Kelly!

    It's never too early to start planning a trip to Walt Disney World! There are so many details to consider, from which resort to reserve to where you'll dine, what type of park passes to purchase and your daily itinerary; you can start planning as early as right now. :-)

    Depending on when your Spring Break falls in 2013, you might find pricing information on Walt Disney World's website. However, if it's not yet posted, there are other places on the web where you can find a rough idea of such things from years past. Yes, prices will be not be exactly the same as what they will be in 2013, but the range difference from, for example, a certain Value Resort to a particular Moderate Resort will be proportionately similar. This will give you a good idea of how to budget. I'm currently helping to plan our dining options for our Senior Class Trip next Spring; park hours are not yet released, but I can find trends and predictions on great sites such as, and even All of these unofficial websites contain searchable information about year-round events, menus, resort pics and reviews and even crowd level predictions. Great info.!

    We've stayed at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and really enjoyed it; the kids especially loved the pool and food options, too. Our next stay, however, is at Disney's Port Orleans, where Guests often fall in love with the resort and never stay anywhere else. Send me another question telling me a little more about your party, your interests and details such as if you're interested in the Dining Plan. I'd be happy to help you select a resort that's just perfect for you! :-)
