I read a post that strongly suggests waiting until late May to book an August trip because "late May is when Disney will announce any great deals," as they put it. One example was the free dining in 2005. It is tempting! We will be going in August and will have 9 in our group and we will be picking up the tab for everyone-airfare, 3 resort rooms, parks tickets and the the dining plan for everyone. Since we are paying for everyone, the chance of getting a great deal by waiting until May to book is, needless to say, quite appealing! On the other hand, just the thought waiting until May to book makes me nervous as we will need 3 resort rooms and ADR's for a group of 9! (tentative ADR choices:Teppanyaki, LeCellier, Crystal Palace, O Hana & Chef Mickeys) Should we book next month for an August trip OR wait until the end of May to book? Oh, please please! Give me your honest opinions!
