Winter is one of the most popular times to book Disney World family vacations. Travelers who visited Orlando in December are planning their return for Christmas 2010, and other families are making arrangements for the upcoming spring and summer breaks.
Disney typically does not offer package deals more than 6 months in advance, so you are out of luck if you are looking for deals during the 2010 Christmas season. However, there are ways to save on trips booked for early spring and summer.
Here is of current discount offers for 2010:
Give a Day Get a Disney Day
You have probably seen the commercials for this promotion on television. If you volunteer for one day at select charity organizations then you can earn one free Disney World Ticket for 2010.
