Im sitting tight,crossing my fingers,holding my breath and hoping .Theirs only so much overtime a lady can do

We may very well be in the states living ourselves by next yr, " we find out in 2/3 wks!!! But if not then I really am praying for free DDP!

We loved loved loved our trip to SSR and it was such an amazing price for a 2 bed, with the free DDP plus 40% off resort price but there's no way we could easily afford it now
We are in the process of selling our house so if that happens then we will def book for next yr no matter the price,( since we don't need to buy another house for the next 20 years of my military Life) but I would like to look after our penny's and get the best deal all the same.

I will answer for us, it's work related Dh is in the military and our time has come to take the foreign posting,
My dad is American and so ive spent many months at a time on and off over in Florida ( yes im lucky my family lived and came from Orlando! )and so we was always going to move over there as we just LOVE America and US life, it's just this way we get to have a free 3 year trial and not have to pay any thing to move or rent!

We're still waiting too. The prices on the Disney UK site are INSANE

I may be optimistic but I do think they'll come down. They'll have to. No-one will book at those prices.

For me and DBF, without flightsfor 2 weeks at CSR with DDP, it was coming out at £3500. I'm gonna have to sell a kidney at this rate

Park tickets are up, Dining Plan prices are up (and more people, more days = more additional increase) and resort prices generally do go up too. I don't think the room only is up THAT much. I am looking at June/July which is not value season comparing with prices I paid for last year in September which is much cheaper and there is a significant difference, but when I worked out what it would be with just the room and tickets (based on last year's ticket prices) it wasn't actually as bad as it looks. I did NOT add DDP to my quotes as I am assuming that at rack rate they are either going to offer free dining, which I will take, OR they are doing away with that or limiting the qualifying period for it and putting in percentage room discounts instead, in which case we will skip the DDP and go with the discount.

We won't know til they finish the current 2013 promo in April. More patience required .... urgh!

Even with free DDP some of those prices are crazy.

Just priced Yacht/Beach cub for 7 nights in Aug £2,051 less 3% Quidco = £1,989

Same 7 nights this August £1,274 less 3% = £1,235
Or with Expedia £1,098 using 10% code WEEKENDTREAT less 12% Quidco if tracks = £966

Hi everyone I'm new here!

Couldn't agree more with wayneg - last year I had priced up the Beach Club for two weeks this July for 4 (2 adults & 2 teenagers) and with the free DDP and the 14 day ultimate ticket it was approx £4500.

We decided not to go this year and to wait until next year when the new Fantasyland is finished and I have just priced for next year and its coming out at £5048! That's over £500 more expensive which to me just seems a ridiculous increase.

At those prices I think we will probably have to cut a couple of days of the duration of our holiday or stay at a moderate resort. We have stayed at POR twice before but really had out hearts set on the Beach Club for our next trip.

Last year we paid £3,285 for 21 nights at OKW & 3 x 21 day tix.
For this year was around £3,800 so we decided to go back to offsite, hotel I am considering is £693 incl breakfast, 3 x 21 day tix = £840, 21 days dining = £1,260. Total £2,800, approx. £1,000 less than onsite. No doubt when they release OKW prices for next year the gap will be even bigger.

Apparently free dining for 2014 will be released on 25th April.

Had a look at wdw UK site,okw prices were available for January-per night:

Studio-£235

1 bed villa-£322

2 bed villa-£467, so we won't be booking okw if that's anything to go by.

Interestingly,por/pofq are more expensive than csr and cbr.
