It was 1 night rate plus taxes and fees. If you think you may end up buying dining (or FD) and tickets, you would be better off booking a package. The deposit was $200 and you have until the 45 day mark to cancel or change plans. That way you could get the best deal before those rooms sell out. If you need to change later to a RO or to new dates, at least you have the going discount to fall back on. Just a suggestion. Especially for September when FD is usually offered.

Oh...I though the deposit on a "package" was 50% of the package up front. If it's only $200 then you are right, that is a better way to go since at the very least I WILL be buying tickets and hoping for FD.

I'll join this thread. Looking at either September or October of 2015. Trying to decide which will be better. Doing a split stay between Disney and universal. I have the plans in my head now I want to book. So does anyone know which resorts they want to stay at, etc..

I'm very impatiently waiting for 2015 rates to come out .

We are planning a 2 week Orlando vacation next June to check out The new Fantasyland at MK and Diagon Alley at USO. Hopefully it will be my daughter and I, my parents, my brother, SIL and niece all coming. I have some cousins who live in Kentucky who may meet us down there for a few days as well.

That's exciting! We honeymooned at WDW in October 2011. Great time of year to get married! Now hoping to take our little guy in November 2015! Of course, he hasn't been born yet (I'm due in 2.5 weeks) and doesn't have a name, but that's not stopping me from getting ready to plan!

If 4 out of 5 people suffer from diarrhea, does that mean the 5th person enjoys it?

Ok, so someone stated that the rates could come out between now and August. I just want to add another question. When are we allowed to start booking for summer of 2015?

It ended up being the best deal we have seen so far. Even with it being more than 12 months, a manager should have allowed you to book in the next calendar year. They did with us.

I think the calendar opened up officially in August last year for the following year. The resort pricing was announced as well. Good luck.
If the OP was just there, there wouldn't have been a BB to book for next year as the 2015 rates aren't even out yet. BBs for the following year don't usually come out until Oct/Nov, with the exception of a FD BB, which is usually offered in August/September for FD the next year in September.

You can book RO now by calling, but if you want a package or want to book online, you have to wait until the 2015 rates are released, which should be sometime mid-July.

You may already be aware of this, but wanted to mention that if you change from RO to a package, the RO will have to be cancelled/refunded and a package booked, requiring a new $200 deposit (or payment in full if this is done 45 days or less from arrival). Since RO and packages are different reservation systems, money paid toward one cannot be applied to the other.

I do know that about the refunds now. I did not know it until after I booked my RO and put I big chunk down. I guess I will pay the $200 for the package when it comes out, then wait until I get the refund then apply the rest at that time.
I do wish I knew that when I booked my RO.
