I am booked for Pop Century for our first family vacation for the week of 10/26-11/2. We will be celebrating my son's birthday, he will turn 3 while we are there. I am keeping my fingers crossed tightly for FD!

We are booked at Pop from 10/22-10/29. Still could really use a deal. I'll take anything but of course free dining would rock! I know it is doubtful with the values though.

Hi, did you have a bounce back offer in your room this month? We leave Friday for a extended weekend trip and HOPING for a bounce back offer in our room at OKW for October.

Subbing to Thread

Subbing - hoping for any type of discount Sept 22 - 28, Sept 29 - Oct 5, or Oct 20-26. I'm a newbie to the forums & Disney planning - anyone know if discounts follow a usual pattern? I'm open for the above dates but wanted to try to get a good idea of which dates are a better bet to book now. Also, I know historically discounts for FD were given to moderate & up - would it be better to book a moderate room & then adjust down to value if FD isn't an option later?

No, I just called 8844 from the room phone. The dates I wanted... the week before, were blacked out, so I took what I could get.

What makes me nervous is that my parents are coming and haven't booked their back up room yet....
I don't agree with this thinking for a regular room reservation at a resort that doesn't have a history of selling out or at non-peak times. The more rooms that are booked ahead of time, the less likely it is discounts will appear or they will be smaller discounts. If I was selling a product and the sales were going well, why would I discount the price??

This however, makes sense. Certain room categories or certain resorts during peak time need to be reserved as soon as possible because they have a smaller pool of availability.

It's simply supply and demand. If many rooms are booked, the bottom line won't demand a discount.
