Normally, January 1 ends holiday rates, and begins Value Season. I called to book our AAA rate at the Wilderness Lodge for Jan 1 through Jan 9th. I was told the first 2 nights would be $405 and the remaining nights would be $202. I asked the reservationist if the huge difference was due to the fact that Jan 1 and 2 are a Friday and Saturday night, and she said it was partially due to that. But mainly, it was due to Jan 1 and 2 still being considered holiday rates! Looks like we will begin our trip off Disney property!
