Well, even though I haven’t started the countdown clock, we’re going to WDW the week after July 4th. Normally I wouldn’t go to Orlando in this time, but my niece is coming to America for the summer and wants to do “The Mouse”. And with her schedule otherwise set, it’s the week after the 4th.
But that’s not the disappointing part and certainly not what this sub forum or thread are about.
Today Disney released passholder rates for June 15 - August 14. As always the offer is “For selected resorts” and even though they say deluxe discounts are 30%, the truth is very different.
We’re doing WL and the rack rate for the 6 days is $2402 (as originally booked).
Based on past experience, I could expect a reduction of $100 a night or $600 total, with a final cost of something like $1800.
Imagine my shock when the CM told me that the “discounted” price was $2282:eek:
Disney Travel is only giving 5% discounts for WL because of popularity. If I want the 30%, I could have done any of the Epcot resorts and apparently GF.
AKL would have been the best with a standard room at something like 25% off, but if I wanted savannah view, it’s back to 5%.
This is verging on bait and switch or false advertising. It would be except for the clever wording that every reservation and offer drips with that absolves the merchant of any real responsibility to actually provide 30% discounts at deluxe resorts as alluded to in their advertisements.
Stinking Mickey Mouse lawyers:hook:
