Disney website ?

Checking rates on the Disneyworld website and I swear the rates were different yesterday for AOA than they are today. Also, when putting in multiple dates throughout the year, the rates never change. I put in June, July, September, and the rate stayed the same, shouldn't it change for different seasons? Just wondering if anyone else has had problems on the website.

I was messing around on there yesterday and when I priced a week in my husbands account it was about 80 more than the exact same thing I priced logged into my account. Weird

I know, I had a great price yesterday, but I must have cleared my cart. I had to wait until today and book and now my cart is empty and the rate is way higher!

If you are going during a time with spring discount go through the link on the special offers page. I found if I didn't do that it would not apply the discount. Other then that I don't have any suggestions

Hospitality Revenue Management

Room rates are set by season & demand. The full (rack) rate for a room stays pretty constant, but any discount off that price is variable and changes as demand for those rooms go up or down. They can change minute to minute.

It's the same for airline tickets and car rentals

I understand that, it was a huge difference, maybe I made a typo, I don't think so. I am a former travel agent so I about 99.9% that it wasn't me!

June and July are the same season, so there shouldn't be any difference there. Check the prices at allears.net and see if they agree with what you remember seeing. They have a chart showing the prices for all seasons for this year, however, I think they probably transposed the summer season price for a suite on a weeknight with the price of a Little Mermaid room on a weekend night.

The only thing I found is that the new site is extremely slow and constantly freezes!
