New Spring 2014 Disney World Special Offers

In the mood to plan a Disney trip?  Disney World has just released some sweet special offers for Spring of 2014!   Because my family just returned from a Fall trip, we won't be taking advantage of this great deal. But we've now stayed at most of the Value Resorts, and a few of the Moderates - so please feel free to ask me any questions, if you are debating between those options for your family.
