    Well first i tried orbitz, cause I know they had LM rooms for $132/night the other day. Sadly today they were sold out. Then i checked hotelscombined.com. and saw the $155 deal on hoteltravel.com. I wasnt sure if it was a hoax at first, cause the first time i clicked at the confirmation page (before payment) it said $255 a night! I wasnt pleased. So i tried again and voila! I got my $155/nite room rate! Im booked! YAY! :cool1:

    Thanks guys! :)


    Thats what i thought too. Honestly. I thought "no way this is real. Its gotta be a glitch". Cause thats pretty much the price of a LM suite on some sites. But I booked it and got the paperwork emailed to me to prove it! So im all set! I call it my long overdue pixie dust!

    Here's HotelTravel.com's description of AoA;

    For a resort with a difference, stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort Orlando in Orlando (FL), which also places you 4 kilometres from Downtown Disney area. Good restaurants abound, with Deep Blu Seafood Grill Restaurant and Tokyo Dining being close by.

    Part of the in-room comforts include Hair dryer, adding to the room's restful feel. Guests have the use of Bathroom with bathtub and shower in the en-suite bathrooms as well. For entertainment, the hotel provides Cable/satellite television in each guestroom.

    Parking facilities are available at the hotel for those arriving by car. Rafiki's Planet Watch Train Station is the closest metro station to the hotel for easy access around the area. Disney's Art of Animation Resort Orlando is 24.9 kilometres from Orlando International Airport for those arriving from afar.

    Guests can use the hotel's internet access at their leisure. Internet is available in all rooms as an additional bonus.

    It's hard to beat Disney's Art of Animation Resort Orlando's popularity. Read more about this celebrated hotel in the review section.

    Yikes indeed, i hope for the op's sake that his room is honored but after reading most of those reviews I'd be a little concerned. When I first read this post a few weeks ago I contemplated going thru them to see if i could get a deal now I feel a lot better that I went through the disney world official site.

    Fake Rates Not Honored By Hotels // and They Keep Your $$$”
    Written on: 27/07/2014 by AliaWentworth350 (1 review written)

    Hotels do not honor their rates. You assume that once you pay for you room that the room is yours because you get billed and get a confirmation. Then, like all the others, you get an email that your room couldn't be filled. They still have my money and wont respond to emails, chat board or answer the phones. THIS IS A BOGUS OPERATION! All they do is charge you for a room and then they call the hotel to try an strike a deal. Something that a 4 year old could do. STAY AWAY FROM THEM!… Read Full Review

    I'm also concerned for OP's sake. I wonder if the OP was able to link their reservation onto MDE..

    I would be very surprised if this rate is honoured. Hopefully, for the OP's sake, they at least get their money refunded.

    I went through a 3rd party online site for a one night stay locally here for a business thing and got a fabulous rate on a 5 star and got called the day before that there was no room available. Fortunately, I got my money and was still able to find something else.

    I would recommend to OP to contact Disney and confirm that they have the reservation. Hopefully they do!

    My room is definitely linked thru My Disney Experience! :) I did my online check in. So it looks as thou everything is ok? I found that site from hotelscombined. I guess i didnt mention that before. I was concerned with the site being from Thailand....I booked the room knowing this, but i still took my chances an went with it anyway because I figured if it came from Hotelscombined, it should be fine.

    Looks like everything is in order....so far! Fingers crossed. I'll keep you updated if anything goes wrong. :(
