Make sure you read the specials and the vacation offers very carefully, as often discounts are restricted to certain room types or certain time frames. Disney is pretty big on that as well, offering Florida residents a few months of the year for the deep discounts. Disney is going to offer their discounts when the resorts have a large amount of vacancy available. When their rooms are empty, you will see advertisements on tv around the Tampa bay market and Daytona Beach. There are certain times of the year where it's pretty much impossible to get a discount in Orlando and one of them is around the time of the Christmas Parade. There's something about the Magic Kingdom during Christmas, and that place gets jammed. They actually have a capacity number and eventually will stop letting people come into the Theme Park. Thank goodness their hotels are just as fun, but you really want to pick a time to book your reservation when the Orlando kids are in school. Keep that in mind when you're scheduling your trip.
