huh. That is odd, although I was trying for May 1-4. It wasn't available and I asked how far out they could book. She punched in random dates and said she found rooms through March. Maybe she didn't try april. This was at the Hard Rock. Which hotel did you book?

Wallet not at work. Completely lost. Have to wait for replacement cards now before I can book.

I booked earlier today over the phone for early January. Rack rate was a pleasant surprise (for RPH) over Disney's deluxes! In any event, the very friendly person who assisted with the reservation did encourage me to call down the line re discounts/AAA rates given the time of year. Still can't book for these dates online.

How much was the rack rate? So they'll adjust the price later without losing the reservation? I saw may 2012 rooms at HRH for under $200 and am hoping to find that for 2013.

Yes if you book rack rate right now and when it gets closer to your dates you can call and they will switch it to lower rates without loosing your reservation
Just keep checking for the lower rates

Wallet found but still can't book May 2013; they are admitting to having through April, though.

Rack rate was $224/night plus tax, which apparently comes to $252/night. Like PP said, the reservationist also let me know that a discount can be applied down the line. This is for the second week in January, so I definitely would not be surprised to see that come down. I'm not sure when discounts tend to be released for early 2013, though?

Edited to add that this is for a standard room with a request for a view of the parks. I was told that this is not a separate booking category, but a request only available for the standard category. We need a crib, and I was told there is no additional charge for that.

Still, no LUCK!

I called last night. I wanted to check on room rates and availability for the Royal Pacific (early Jan. or mid Feb.). The nice lady on the other end of the phone could not give me rates. Not even rack rates. She said that the Partner Hotel rates had been released last week, and they hoped maybe by next week they could give me a quote!

Holy cow. Who knew it would be this difficult to plan that far in advance?

That is funny, I called and got the exact opposite information. I called and asked about rates for Feb 2013, and was given a rate for President's Weekend ($319 per night at RPR). I also asked about partner hotels, and they told me that those rates wouldn't be out until sometime in August!

My travel agent called about early May for me and they told her to try back in a week or so.

some of the call centers that your call goes to, can really give confusing information about booking way in advance.

you might want to hang up and call again or ask to put the supervisor on the phone to help you.
