    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

I am looking for a hotel for two adults for 1/15-1/17.  I would like EITHER a Disney property OR a 4+ * very close to WDW.  I’m willing to spend $160 or even slightly more (including resort fees) for a really nice property (4.5-5*).  If it is a 3-3.5* Disney property I would prefer to be around $100 or less.  I am fine with taking a chance on bidding or booking Priceline express.  

 

I have browsed a lot but I am worried that if I try to get a Disney property by bidding I will end up with something less desireable.  

 

Thoughts/suggestions?

If you're not willing to accept any hotel in the zone at the star rating (or higher) that you choose then i would not recommend bidding on PRICELINE.

 

This PRICELINE EXPRESS is close to your needs, but you'll have to decide if worth extending your budget a bit (confirm your dates on the landing pages after clicking any of the links below):

4.5* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $186 ($177 with the discount from the BB Priceline Coupon page)
Business Center
Restaurant
Free Internet
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> Walt Disney World Swan Hotel would be my best guess here

 

If you're not willing to push your budget you could consider:

4* Walt Disney World - Disney Springs for $81
Business Center
Restaurant
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> best guess for this one would be the B Resort and Spa located in Disney Springs Resort Area

 

Another option:

4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $141.00
Free Parking
Free Internet
Suite
BR2
Kitchen
Smoke Free
Laundry in room
Fitness
Pool
Business
24hr Front Desk
Laundry
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Kitchenette
==> best guess would be the Lighthouse Key Resort and Spa

 

Any of these options work for your needs?

Upon review, I think I would be ok with any of the 3.5*+ hotels in the Disney Springs or Bonnet Creek areas, although I would obviously be willing to pay much more for some than others. Any tips on if I want to try bidding? I’m a pretty experienced Priceline user but Orlando has SO MANY hotels it’s quite overwhelming.

When bidding on PRICELINE you have to be willing to accept any hotel in the zone at the star rating (or higher) that you choose to bid.  So what would you be your maximum bid for your least favorite 3.5+ star hotel in either the Disney Springs or Bonnet Creek zones?

I’m sorry I thought I concluded this at the time.  I never could find a combination of price and star level that I was comfortable with, so I booked directly through Disney.
