    We are planning for Sept. 2014 and will be using the military discount Salute to Armed Forces (granted that it is renewed through next year). We have to call the reservation hotline because you can't get the discount booking online.

    How early can we book our package?
    It would only be room and dining because we will be purchasing our tickets through the base.

    Thank you!

    The 2014 rates should be coming out anytime now....you can only do dining 180 out so the room is all you could do this early.....I think you can book now and just pay one nights stay and then they update it when the new rates come out....but it shouldn't be long. Where will you be staying...or do you know yet?

    As the pp said, room only can be booked by calling, which will be quoted at the highest rate for 2013 and then adjusted once the new rates come out. In order to book a package, you have to wait until the 2014 rates are released (which should be anytime). Since you are getting room + dining, it's better to wait because booking just the room now would require you to cancel the room only reservation (and wait for a refund) and then rebook with a package (requiring a new deposit). Room only and packages are different reservation systems, so money paid toward one cannot be applied to the other.

    Thank you for the heads up about having to cancel later to rebook - what a hassle!
