    Love this site! We are heading to WDW in April and I want to go ahead and make our reservations but I'm afraid I might miss last minute deals for moderate resorts. Would you suggest making res. this far out or waiting it out for specials?

    Hi Emily!

    Unfortunately, as you know, there aren't any current discounts or promotions which cover April 2012 yet. It is still a bit early and a discount could be announced between now and then. The best place to keep an eye out for a good deal is the Special Offers page of Walt Disney World's website.

    The good news is that Walt Disney World is very willing to apply a newly announced promotion or discount to an existing reservation whenever possible. That means, if you'd like to start planning your vacation, you could book now and apply a discount later.  Personally, I usually recommend booking as soon as you know the resort and dates you'd like to go.

    If, later, you see a discount announced that you'd like to take advantage of, contact Disney at 407-W-DISNEY (or your travel agent) and ask that it be applied to your reservation. If the resort and room category you've booked is available, you'll be able to apply the discount. Most times, if it is not available for your specific resort selection, you can ask about changing to a different room or resort category. Most times this can be done without any cost to you (and sometimes there can be a small charge that is usually off set by the amount of the discount).

    Hope you have fun planning!
