Doesn't Disney always have a deal coming?

Lewisc 02-03-2013 02:06 PM

There is almost always a promotion (deal) offered after kids are back to school. During the "hurricane" season. Years ago it was PIN codes with discounts up to around 45%, more recently packages including free dining.

I wonder if it could be something to do with new itineraries for Disney Cruise Line.
That would be nice,but if they could hold off till the 16th of the month when we board the Fantasy that would be even nicer.::yes::

Who Knows What EVIL Lurks In The Heart Of Disney Marketing?!

When Disney feels ready to implement their next promotion they will do so. If other recent promotions have been any indication, for about the first month nobody will really understand it and the Marketing people will not have thought out all the ramifications.

it's highly expected to be the rest of the 2014 sail dates for DCL

lizziewhan 02-03-2013 11:02 PM

well im sad to say it was nothing...well not nothing. instead of working for some company as a travel agent she went into business for herself. i really thought it would be something about going to disney

Well played...

But i have a hard time biting my tongue (i know...shocking)...when the "any news on the discounts?" posts show up.

I try hard though.

I would remind everyone that old CMB a few years back stood up at the investors podium and swore up and down that discounting would be cut back...and i for one hope that he actually kept his word.

Its seems like a concerted effort to do so...and its better for the parks and the guests as a whole.
Two of the worst periods to visit WDW was the Credit Madness of 2005-2008 to be immediately followed by the "Slash and Burn" of 2008-2010.
It was just a real stinker of an experience...and i know its not popular...but the heavy discounts were a big part of it.
IF only because the dining plan was almost standard - and they used it to shield some cheapskate, quality busting measures with it.

But also there were abnormal crowd levels at strange times...a little too much stress on the infrastructure because they were slashing costs while packing in guests at reduced rates.
Not a "magical" experience...indeed.

I'm all for the traditional discounts...flordia res, CM, early fall and late spring promotions...but glad that many of these "discount" rumors have been falling short for a couple of years now.

Economics aside - which is disappointing to many - it really does cheapen the product and damage it longterm.

I agree, but am still hoping for free dining in late August.:laughing: If not, I'll just pay OOP and enjoy the family time before the kids head off to another year of schoolin.

It really seemed like the October crowds were building from year to year and I can only guess it was the free dining and discounts. We had one night where you couldn't even walk down Main Street. Never saw it that busy on an October night.

I hear you...and i support you...

Because you said the magic words " I would love it...but if no discount - oh well, go and have a good time anyway"

The problem than i have seen over the last few years is the "greed" for the discounts. It's seems as though people think they're owed to them. And then on top of that there is the impatience:

"What are they waiting for?!? I need to the discount code for my 12 night reservation at the Poly!!! :furious: "

I'm exaggerating...but not too much. I've seen almost the verbatim thing around here far too many times.

People's views of what they should receive/ pay were skewed heavily pre and post bubble. If their contention was that they could afford to go, but only afford 60-70% of the price of the rooms, tickets, and services...then my contention is that they actually can't afford to go.

just a peeve of mine.

As far as October...i know what you mean....

Used to be the best month of the year to go (may and november close seconds)...but it's popularity went off the charts and made it downright uncomfortable in recent years.

Part of that was the Halloween Party being very successful and them rolling it out 20 times a year. It's way better than the christmas party.

But the other is the Food and Wine Festival. That thing has gone through the stratosphere and swamps the property (no pun intended).
And it does so from segments that have big access to the property: namely DVC members and Florida Residents.

Not the same as it used to be.

Personally I loved the discounts, it allowed my wife and I to upgrade from a value to a moderate resort on our honeymoon. It also allowed for us to visit WDW at times when we might not have been able to.
