Just curious.. what are you all getting for race discounts for rooms? i am waiting to get my time off ok'd, and trying to budget..
Also, can you just give a deposit and pay the rest later?

Looking at the Central Ressie site; if you reserve just the Saturday night, regular rooms are available in both resort hotels. However, extending either way from the one night puts you in a Club level only or a suite. Actually, that seems to hold true for all resort hotels in that area including the Swan/Dolphin.


Obviously that can change quickly. Worth a phone call to CRO if you want the ability to walk to the start and back from the race.

I did mine at Art of Animation and plan to just walk over to Pop Century to get the bus... Paid for 1 night, the rest due when I check in. No discounts for the Little Mermaid rooms, unfortunately...
If you go through central reservations for room only, it's 1 night deposit the rest due at check in.
If you add park tickets and/or dining plan at central reservations or go through runDisney/travel agency, it's deposit of 1 night balance when you reserve and the rest due 45 days before check in.

Agreed, Coach! I was checking form 10/4-10/7. No luck at present

Actually- if you turn your booking into a package by adding tickets and dinning, the deposit then is $200 with balance due 45 prior to arrival

Thanks Coach! They must have upped the capacity, I'm surprised I haven't seen a 50% countdown bar yet!

Quick question - can you walk from the Boardwalk to the bus stop at the Yacht/Beach Club?

Sorry if it is a stupid question - I haven't been to the Boardwalk in over a decade (didn't make it during this year's trip!).

You can walk from BW to YC/BC -- I wish I could remember how long the walk was. We asked at the Inkeepers Lounge when we stayed at BW in Dec, but then opted to just take the boat across, but yes, you can walk. The bridge across is near Swan/Dolphin.
