    I made a package reservation for November before the prices changed, if I add a discount such as free dining or a room discount will I just get the discount or will I be charged the new price and then get the discount?

    Hi Lori Ann,

    November is a very nice time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. I can imagine myself escaping those cold New Jersey days, and enjoying some time at the theme parks. I think I am going to do just that!

    The fall season typically brings out some nice Special Offers, and in years past, Free Dining has been very popular. The Disney Dining Plans are an excellent way to include your meals as part of your package, and sometimes they are free of charge, when you book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package. My family and I have taken advantage of these promotions on numerous occasions. Hopefully, they'll continue to be offered.

    I always recommend friends and family to book a vacation based on their budgets, possible dates and resort preferences, but also to keep an eye for any Special Offers that may become available. If they can make them work for them, then all they need to do is call a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936, or their travel agent, and have them apply the offer. Sometimes, you may need to change resorts and/or adjust the dates.

    A few years ago, I had made a reservation before ticket prices had changed. However, after I called and had them apply the Free Dining promotion, my package price did not change a single cent. The trick is to make sure you don't book a new reservation, and that you are simply making the change to a vacation package. If you had a room-only reservation, this will more than likely not work. And, this may not be possible this year or in the future. Verify the new package total, before any changes are made.

    Well, I'm going off to look at a fall vacation for myself now. Happy planning!

    Ricardo.
