1. dtnemail-KeepCalm-3dc6eBetter Pricing – The last two years in a row, Disney has raised ticket prices in late February. If your deposit is in place before the increase, you pay the pre-increase price. I’ve had clients each of the last two years who saved more by booking pre-increase than they would have applying a Fall discount.
  2. Star Wars Launch Bay – The construction of the big new attractions hasn’t begun yet. But new Star Wars experiences have arrived at Walt Disney World. For the first time, you can meet Star Wars characters other than during a special event. Jedi Training Academy has been expanded to include new villains. And the amazing Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular fireworks show  may be my favorite night time show at WDW.
  3. Dining Availability – Dining reservation windows haven’t opened yet for Fall vacations, so you’re in position to book the most popular options. And your Mouse Master agent is happy to be the one up at 6 a.m. Eastern Time making those reservations for you. Availability for summer is still pretty good, but the sooner you start booking those ADRs, the better.
  4. Rivers of Light – the early buzz about this new nighttime show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is fantastic. It should be a truly spectacular show, opening in March or April of this year. Get your vacation booked before the new show starts drawing additional onsite bookings from fans eager to see the new show.
  5. Epcot Updates – By Fall 2016, Frozen Ever After should be open in the Norway pavilion in Epcot, and the new Soarin’ Around the World should be playing in newly renovated digital projection theaters (with ⅓ more capacity).
  6. Disney Springs – Downtown Disney has been transformed over the last couple of years, and the Disney Springs it has become is full of fantastic dining and shopping experiences, from the Marketplace Coop merchandise to Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar to Morimoto’s Asia restaurant.
