I just got $40 ($52 with tax) for the airport Amerisuites for 11/17-11/18 and 11/23-11/24, the nights we arrive and before we leave, since we have a later flight getting in and are planning to drive to Crystal River the next day and then are coming from Tallahassee before we go home, but have an 8:30 am flight out. We were able to get both nights for what I had originally booked 1 night for.

I have used Priceline several times (Not for Disney however). I have gotten hotels and resorts NOT listed in Priceline's regular inventory. Hope that helps!

We booked on priceline for the week after Christmas. We got the Gaylord Palms, for 95, which is what I was hoping for...but, it was not on pricelines list of available hotels for that time period. I did not think we would get it, so I was pleasantly surprised. check out www.biddingfortravel.com for answers to a ton of priceline questions. It was very helpful for us.

I just got Gaylord Palms for $108/night plus taxes and fees. I needed 2 nights, March 7th and 8th. First bid was $86 but wasn't accepted. I rebid until $108 and got Gaylord Palms. Total with taxes was $250ish. Resort fees and parking will be another $22/day with the total coming to $300 give or take a few $'s. I think I did alright for peak season considering a value is $135/night + taxes.

OK, I have used priceline for stays of one or two nights (not wdw) but never anything longer. Any chance of getting 7 nights or should I break it into groupings of two or three nights and hope for the best? I'd really like to not have to move in the middle of our trip if possible.

Its not too soon as long as you dont bid any higher then your max right now and be patient if it doesnt work yet.

You need to read up on the free rebidding tips on www.biddingfortravel.com or www.betterbidding.com

Bid on 2 1/2 star in the WDW area for Spring Break (March) and won the Lexington Orlando Sun Resort. Bid $51 for 7 nights and total with taxes and service fee was a little of $415. Checked the hotel website and the cheapest room was $100 per night. So the old save up to 50% by using Priceline worked here. Hotel looks OK, but as long as it is clean and the AC works we'll be happy because we only need a place to crash afterspending the day at the parks.

thats a good hotel. We stayed there in May 07 and really liked it. We paid $43 a night through priceline, then upgraded to an Epcot view for $10 a night more. With that view, we could sit on our 12th floor balconey and watch Epcot & MK fireworks. I would gladly stay there again.
