Just sit tight for a while. They don't usually open up the next year so early so either they are trying something new to try get an idea of volume of initial bookings before they assess discounts for the new period, or they haven't properly released all rooms, resorts etc yet

Which Port Orleans are you looking at by the way? We're back at POFQ next year. It better not be insanely expensive!

I made a simulation for 2014 using our 2013 dates (matching the days of the week to account for the higher prices fridays and saturdays)

our 3 weeks at POR would cost us £675 more than it has cost us for 2013 (both prices without discount)

part of this increase can be blamed on the 21 days ultimate tickets (£305 and £285 instead of £280 and £260) that's quite a hike.

£25 for a ticket.

that's still £200 more per week at a moderate.
For a preferred at POR, that's an 18% increase on the rack rate ...

The 14 day tickets are up too - so the more people in your family the more that will up your price.

As for free dining, I doubt we will see that until the end of the current resort room discount offer which carries on until the beginning of April. That brings us almost to the time when Disney usually release their prices for the next year so we shall sit and wait.

Sarah, is this the first year that your girls are 3 (i.e. no longer infants but Disney 'children')? That will add another £500+ to your stay immediately

So do you guys recon that these prices will stay the same with free dining? Or do the room prices go up a little to compensate for the free dining when that is released?

Yes this is the first year we pay for them :-(, but their third visit :-). I think although we pay for their tickets we are getting free food for them where as the times before it cost us a bit in food as they both like to eat

Im still gonna wait for hopefully free dining and perhaos do oct instead of august

one thing's for sure, the price won't be going down when (and if) free dining returns.
We'll probably see accomodation discounts, like the one currently going on for 2013. Like 15 to 35% on accomodation, but not with free dining at the same time

Sarah, have a good think about October, as I would definitely do that if it were an option. I can, but it would mean taking DD out of a whole week of school and she is going into secondary school - not sure I want to do that.

We've done October twice and it's a fabulous time to go, less rain than August, definitely not as humid as September, room rates are slightly lower ..... Have a chat with your DH and ask a few questions to get opinions of others but if you can swing it, I'd personally be doing it in a heartbeat

I'm not in the market to book for 2014 (hopefully we will have moved to Florida permanently by then!) but my advice would be to sit tight for now and wait for free dining and other discounts.

We looked up the price of our 2013 trip (2 weeks, SSR with tickets and free dining) and it's £2800 more in 2014 at the current price. My gut tells me that discounts will come in April when they usually release them so booking now will probably not be cost effective.
