Disney offers promotions every season. Anyone can get these promotions, subject to the terms of the promotion as well as the availability of the rooms. Note: Disney blocks out a certain number of rooms for each promotion, and not all resorts or resort room categories are available for the promotion.
The promotions usually become available the season BEFORE the scheduled travel. For instance, it is fall, and Disney is currently offering a couple winter promotions. Disney Visa cardholders have recently had promotions become available to them a week before they were to go public.
Can I find a better promotion through a different vender?
NO. Disney has strict control over pricing. There are several discounts available for Florida residents, military, annual pass holders, etc... Your travel professional can help you determine if you are eligible for any of these as well.
Do I have to wait until a promotion is released to be able to book to receive that promotion?
NO!! I recommend you start booking and planning your Walt Disney World vacation AT LEAST 6 months in advance to have as many experiences and opportunities available to you as possible. When a promotion is released, I spend the day on the phone and get all promotions for every eligible client. If your booking is not included in the promotions offered, I will immediately let you know and give you your options and the details regarding the promotion. (Since the visa promotion immediately precedes the public promotion, we travel professionals have insight into the terms of the upcoming promotion.)
Do you have any other questions? Feel free to ask!! I love talking Disney!
