We'll be there Aug 2nd-8th, staying in the cabins at Fort Wilderness. Been going to Disney every other year now for about 10 years but this is the first summer trip for us since I was a teen. Can't wait to get some tips on Disney in August. We are from Georgia so the heat isn't new to us but being at the park in the heat is a different story. We are very excited to be staying at the Fort again.

Booked my trip Friday! staying aug 15-21 at all star movies before hitting up a 3 day on the fantasy. This is my first time at a value (other than one night in an AoA suite) so I’m a little nervous but hopeful.

    Some of you have been doing this a lot longer than I have; when do you anticipate August discounts to be announced? January?

    The past few years, there has been a lot of inconsistency in when summer discounts have been release, making it pretty hard to guess. I would say keep an eye open on the boards here for announcements. January might not be a bad time to start really paying attention. Sometime between then, and April should see announcements.

    I was able to change our free dining bounceback reservation. August 6-15 still at All Star Sports. That gives us an extra day and I also bumped up our park hoppers from 7 days to 9. I did 7 because when we took our sons (who will be 17 and 14 on this trip) in 2018, my oldest said it was too much and too long. When I talked about having a shorter ticket and less time in the parks he actually wasn't too happy about that. It's been more than year, so he's forgotten a bit of how tired we got. This time I will plan in more rest/swim time.
