    We took our first WDW trip this past Dec. & are thinking of another trip in August 2011. Do you know how far in advance Disney will release resort price info & accept reservations? If we book & they later announce a deal, can we re-book to get

    Hi Elissa!

    The rates for the upcoming year are historically released in the summer.  You can not make an on-line reservation until the actual 2011 pricing information is released. However, by calling Disney, you can reserve a hotel room up to 499 days in advance of your intended check out date.  If you call now, what Disney does is charge you for a  single night's rate based on this year and then automatically adjusts your rate when the 2011 pricing comes out.

    Packages can only be booked once the 2011 rates are released.  However, you can easily convert a room only reservation to a package by simply calling.  Also, if any applicable discounts come out between now and then, you can call and have one applied to your reservation; there are usually limited numbers and conditions so not all discount codes will apply.  Also remember that you can only take advantage of one discount.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
