Priceline Hotel: Resort Orlando (Lake Buena Vista-Downtown Disney) Hyatt Grand Cypress

I won the Hyatt Grand Cypress yesterday for $102.

This is quite a bit above the ~$60 others have been getting, and still above a previous poster who bid two weeks ago for almost the same dates and paid $85.

I started bidding at $60 and increased my bids in $2 or $3 steps. Starting from $85, I got offers to bid again if I add $20 or $30. I ignored those. I was still rejected at $99, but accepted at $102.

One reason for the higher price could be the Space Shuttle launch on 1 November. I had originally planned to stay around Cape Canaveral for three days and spend only three days in Orlando. However, almost all hotels there were sold out on normal booking sites so I didn't even try Priceline. So I guess that the increased demand around Cape Canaveral somehow spills over into Orlando as well.

As the "previous poster" I can say that you're probably right. We'll be attending the launch of STS-133 and spending the remaining time at Disney. Cape Canaveral is going to be very busy.
