    I am trying to book Oct. 27, 2019- Nov. 1, 2019, and I know there aren't any deals offered for 2019, yet, but if I book now, will I be able to apply a discount at a later date when offered? Or should I wait until I see the offers go up?

    Hi Ashley,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The timing of your visit is perfect - I hope you attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. The characters, costumes and decorations blow me away!

    Having faced a similar dilemma in the past, I will caution that you may not be able to apply the discount to your existing reservation. Since we want to make our advanced dining reservations at the 180-day mark, I always book our vacation package at least 6 months prior to our trip - I typically book a year in advance so that we can get the resort hotel and room type that we prefer. In one particular past instance, a Special Offer appeared after I had booked our vacation package. 

    When I called to see if I could get the special offer applied to our existing reservation, a cast member initially said no. There were only a certain number of rooms available for the special offer. Eventually, however, I was able to get the discount applied. Persistence and patience were helpful! We saved about $200. Despite this potential challenge, I still book our vacation packages early. It matters most to us to have our preferred resort and room type and to be able to make advanced dining reservations 180 days prior to our trip.

    Ashley, remember to call 407-939-5277 if a special offer comes out after you make your reservation. Cast members have done their best to help us get the newly released discounts in the past!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
