  • It’d be nice if there was actually availability for these promotions. The cheapest “promo” I found was for $440 a night, not a single value or moderate resort has availability since I started looking at 8AM today.

    • Exactly, you can take 5 minutes and check a few dates to see that there is virtually no availability for standard rooms at most resorts under the room-only discount right now – at least, for the mid-December dates I was checking. It is weird that Disney keeps offering promotions with such limited availability. If they are filling the on-site hotels without promotions, good for them, but why waste everyone’s time?

      And shouldn’t the article mention this, and maybe find a useful contact at Disney to ask about this? Of course, a regular cast member will have no insight, but maybe someone in corporate will know if there is a strategy to open up more rooms under this discount later.

      • From what I’m reading there is virtually no availability in Dec period. I’m there the first week in Dec and there truly isn’t a room to be had except for the Deluxe resorts. I just find it funny that on the day of discount release not a single sample package is actually available. It’s truely BS!

  • I agree with the other posters…why advertise promotions if there are so few available? So frustrating to get your hopes up and when you check there is barely anything available….smarten up Disney!

    Thanks for the head’s up! I booked my room only discount for November – had no problem finding hotels in every category for my dates.

  • I am staying at a deluxe in December and wasn’t able to get a room at any resort. Actually I think there was a suite available for like $1500 a night at AKL with the discount. ha ha NOPE.
    I have literally never had a problem getting a deluxe room only discount. There have been times where I needed to change resorts or get different room category. But this seems extreme.

  • I’m glad I’m not the only one! I have been searching since Monday, and haven’t been able to come up with ANYTHING for a deluxe resort for a stay in November. I tried multiple dates and multiple resorts and there’s just nothing. That seems a little weird to me, that they would release new offers with no availability. I haven’t had trouble in the past, so I’m hoping it’s some sort of glitch? Otherwise, they’re just super duper booked and it’s going to be very busy then.

  • So we are new DVC folks and booked a trip to the Poly in early December. Then in March we lost my Dad to cancer and we decided we should take mom with us to Disney. There was nothing at the Poly except bungalows and one club level for the wrong dates. We have secured her a room at the Floridian using a travel agent because after a week of looking on my own I could get nothing. Now the travel agent said early Dec is really busy due to Pop Warner. We were there last year at a moderate, but most of the Pop Warner kids were at the All Star etc. But anyway, I agree I thought there was something strange for there to be so little available. Sure, the bungalows… but who is really staying in those? The Royal Families of the world I guess.
