Resort Reservations may be softening


#1

With the release of Disney quarterly results, there was mention that demand for on-property resort reservations may be softening. It will be interesting what the discounts could be for Oct/Nov (since that is my next 2 trips)


#2

Oh…I agree it will be interesting to see what “incentives” Disney will be offering for fall travel. I’m anxiously waiting to see what kind of discounts will be offered for Nov.


#3

ummmm, I am looking for a break in January :biggrin:


#4

Ummmmmm…and early February too please!:biggrin:


#5

Has Disney ever offered free dining other than in Sept? Just wondering, that is when we have always gone, but I thought maybe they had offered in Jan/Feb before?


#6

I just called and they have NOTHING posted past 9/30/08 . . . FYI!


#7

bring on the Dec. discounts!! i am getting so hopeful they might be really, really good!!


#8

Do you think Thanksgiving week is “blacked out” for any discount code?


#9

I am definately interested in seeing if there will be any discounts for Oct. Although a little hesitant to use them as I used one back in Jan and it totally messed up my reservations. With using the Discount code it removed my dining plan. Which I thought was wierd. So just a little leary with using the discounts.


#10

Yes. Holiday weekends are not going to see discount codes.

I don’t know if it’s too late for October codes or not.

But with the increase in park tickets, it will cost my family an extra $100 for tickets. So any “discount code” doesn’t mean much in my over all budget.


#11

I just want them to announce everything so I can start budgeting my January trip.


#12

We might start seeing October 1st through the middle of November once the end of the summer deals hit, which I believe is the middle of August. That’s all I am waiting for as well. Checking on the weekend that I am looking at, it appears that all rooms at all resorts are still available, which means we should see some nice discounts.


#13

Nope never saw it any other time other than August/September, but who knows? they may be using that to fill their rooms if their attendance is down.


#14

When are your exact dates . . . I was told I got a “deal” at CSR! If our dates are similar, I’ll PM you the details! :happy:


#15

first, ssn— I am so jealous of your avatar! Way to go!!!

Second, I wonder if slower reservations might mean some additional incentives for DVC too?


#16

Amen to that! I am just bursting, waiting for details about the 2009 rates.:blow::pinch: I can’t believe they are waiting past the 6 month mark to give out the info. I usually have everything planned and budgeted by now. Typically, by this time I’m counting down my days to make :phone: ADRs…and now I can’t even do that!:glare:


#17

YES!!!
At least from the Wednesday before through the weekend. AP and resident rates should become available again the Monday after Thanksgiving through around Dec. 19.


#18

Love incentives…


#19

I’m waiting for a sweet deal for two rooms in October. When do they normally release those codes?
