It's all about marketing - sometimes discounts aren't so much about selling more volume as they are about seeming competitive and keeping existing customers happy and thinking they got a good value.
I agree that it has to have something to do with room bookings. After all, like many of the posters here, if there is not a discount, ya'll are willing to stay off-site. The discounts encourage people to stay on-property. So to me, it would make sense that they are looking at the total number of rooms booked. Why let guests stay off-site when Disney can make bank off of guests staying on their property?

You can't tell me that the reason Disney extended this holiday discount going on now to dec 24th because they had too many rooms still avaiable. There is another way of picking and chosing discounts.
I can't see the holiday discount extended to the 24th anywhere ....

Still says book by the 13th as well ...

Danny25 has a great reputation for posting accurate information. Did I read it correctly that these discounts will come out on January 3rd?

You read it correctly, I haven't been around to know how reputable he is, but quite a few veterans have come out to support him. TOTALLY stoked. Just can't wait at this point.

Danny25 doesn't post much but when he does, he's usually right on the money. I'm very excited to hear that it looks like another special offer is right around the bend.

If we are already booked and paid for and these do come out can you get a refund? Or should I just wait to pay the rest off?

I am bowing out of the watch for May discounts and we decided we are keeping our reservation for the two bedroom deluxe condo at Bonnet Creek. It was fun being on the lookout for awhile, but we feel that staying here not only works out best for our budget, but for our family's needs and vacationing style as well. Happy planning everyone

Ooooh! If I've already booked, but not paid more than the deposit, will I be able to apply the room discount?
