Hi - we want to do a quick trip to seek the holiday decorations the first weekend in december? Is that still part of thanksgiving or something (dec 3-5). The resorts were booked solid - no AP or even the discount rate that anyone could use (I think BAT). There was no availability in the WL, Contemporary, Poly, BWI -- There were just some very high end rooms and suites. I ended up reserving POR Riverside, which I like - but they only had waterview and the AP rate was the same as the regular discounted rate ($100 + tax). I even looked on expedia and there was not much yesterday. I thought that between thanksgiving and christmas was supposed to be light crowds? what's going on? Do you think I should keep checking back? The CM I spoke with was very nice and tried hard. Isn't this strange?
