(WUSA9) -- Labor Day is just around the corner and you still can jump on a couple of deals now for travel this weekend.

We reached out to Bob Diener of, who is also a frequent guest on our morning show, for some ideas. Here's what he sent us:

You can stay in Downtown Disney at the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort for 60% off. Prices are from $105 night and you can dine with Mickey!

Another option is Las Vegas. There are special rates over the Labor Day weekend and this fall in Las Vegas. For example, the Quad Hotel in the center of the Las Vegas Strip is now $97 a night for the upcoming holiday weekend. 

Bob Diener had a few more travel suggestions for the fall. He flagged the fall sale with Southwest Airlines. You have to purchase by August 29, 2013 for travel Sept. 3 through Feb. 12. There is a 14-day advance purchase required. Fares start at $69 with no baggage or change fees.

Diener also suggests for hotel stays this fall, book at least 14 days in advance for the best deals. Many hotels are offering 10% to 30% off for booking 14 days in advance.

Another tip: call 1-800-hotels8 and ask for the "unpublished rate" for the hotel you are interested in. That move will typically save you another 10 to 20 percent.
