    We will be there feb27-march 3 and the hotels are very expensive. What's going on. Is it just the start of spring break (although where I live spring break is in April).

    Yes, and they aren't included in the discount that week either (3/5 to 3/14 are a blackout). I had to bump my vacation back a week to get a discounted room. Totally forgot that with Easter so late that Mardi Gras would be late too! :rolleyes1

    OP, your dates should fall into the discount period. Have you looked at the special offers page on the Disney website?

    Those dates are NOT blacked out. Believe me, I know. We're going for Mardi Gras also. The thing is that the room only discount goes from 35% to 30% for deluxe hotels, but they are still discounted.
