And there it is. Let's be honest.. rack rates at the deluxes are often much higher than a true deluxe property outside of WDW. Paying $400 a night for the Poly or more, and not being able to get a decent reservation time or ANY reservation to eat there without booking 6 months in advance is ridiculous. Sure I practically live on the Disboards, but what about someone who doesn't? Can you imagine paying rack rate for those rooms which are nothing extraordinary, and not be able to eat there unless it was Captain Cooks and finding all the public spaces crammed with people every night and a pool so small that it's jammed in the high season?
Don't get me wrong. Disney is exceptional at what they do and their parks are outstanding. I truly believe though that they've gotten way too big for their britches on what they expect people to pay for their rooms, and I won't pay it for the Deluxes. I could.. but I won't.
However, as is proven time and time again, people will continue to pay it so the discounts are getting smaller and smaller.
