Well, to me, I try to keep things a little simpler. And it helps to understand Disney’s business model.
I won’t look a gift horse in the mouth. I’ll take a discount wherever I can get it. As it is, I can barely afford to take this trip anyway. The kids already know that this trip will replace our ordinarily lavish Christmas Day.
Here’s my point: if you’re committed to staying at a particular Deluxe resort, then you’re limiting your options. Disney won’t discount rooms that are going to be in high demand. They’re only going to offer discounts to motivate people to travel who ordinarily wouldn’t. It worked for me. I would never stay at the Contemporary for full price, at least not this year.
I wish you luck, but this is turning out to be Disney’s busiest year since before 9/11. They were swamped with reservation requests today, so I think they feel that their marketing has done well. I sincerely doubt that they will open up a significant number of new discounts, so take the ones that are available while they are still available.
I’m so psyched! I’ve never stayed in a Deluxe Disney resort. I can’t wait to stagger downstairs and plop my butt into a seat at Chef Mickey’s for breakfast. :laugh:
