My husband and I our going to Universal on 3-1, and would like to be on Disney property, or Disney Springs if that's not possible for 3/2-3/4.  We can stay at one resort, or we can do a Universal resort the first day.  I'm very new to this and I'm trying to figure it all out.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  If we could stay at a Disney Deluxe resort that would be amazing.  Thank you!

Welcome to Betterbidding. 😀

 

So that we can know what to suggest when researching and be able to compare when looking at 3/1 vs 3/2-4, what would be your desired budget per night for this stay?

Thank you!  My head is a bit of a hot mess trying to navigate the option of savings.  If we weren't staying on Disney property, then I would prefer to keep the cost to $400 total...If Disney property is an option I would like to keep those two nights around $250 per night depending on the hotel.

 

For Universal, I would like that one to be as cheap as possible, while still being at least a 3 star hotel...unless I could stay at one of the Loews hotels that includes the express passes.  Those would cost us $200 so i can see paying as much as $275 for the hotel.

 

This likely was not helpful at all. 🙂

 

My other line of thinking is to just stay at Disney Springs for all three nights in a semi nice hotel for $350-$400 total.

Really, I'm just excited about the option of staying on Disney Property, and I'd love to find a way to make that happen.

I've been looking through other posts to see how people are identifying the price and resort fees before bidding on a hotel (I'm guessing they're bidding - I'm not sure how it works).  How are you able to identify if there are resort fees, or not?  It looks like Disney hotels do not have resort fees, so if I can find one that doesn't I'm guessing that would be my best bet.  Thank you!

Welcome to BetterBidding!

 

Let's start with what you really want the most, see if it's within budget, and we'll take it from there...

 

For your complete stay (3/1-3/4) i'm seeing:

4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $201.00
Resort
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
Childrens Activities
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==> from the Orlando Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Disney Swan and would be our best guess for this one (and note that this is one of the Disney properties that does charge a resort fee)

 

... unfortunately it looks like the nite of 3/1 is the least expensive nite as when i tried to search for only 3/2-3/4 i don't see this property offered (or if it is offered the price goes up as i didn't bother looking at anything $250+ per nite)

 

So to move forward... what are your thoughts about The Swan at $201/nite for your complete stay?

Let us know your thoughts and we'll take it from there.

 

EDIT TO ADD:

I had a look at the solo nite of 3/1 in the Univesal area and see:

4* HOTWIRE Universal Orlando Resort for $257.00
Free Internet
Pet Friendly
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
==> best guess here would be Universal's Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, so you can weigh this option along with your decision to split your stay between two different properties (although keep in mind that if you go with this for the first nite, at the moment i'm not seeing any on-site Disney properties for the balance of your stay)

So what do you think is your next best option? (Disney Springs for all/part of your trip, at/near Universal for all/part of your trip, go for a non-Disney property in the Bonnet Creek area, etc)

 

The regular retail rate for a 3 star hotel like Disney's All-Star Music Resort is $300+ for your dates... so the likelihood of a on-site 4 star for under $200/nite may not be realistic, even thru PRICELINE / HOTWIRE.

I'm thinking I'd like to try for one of the value disney properties for all three nights if that's possible.  When I look at priceline and hotwire hotels, their only 3 star hotels in the Bonnett Creek area are the Art of Animation and the All Stars Music.  Does that mean if I make an offer on a 3 star hotel in that area it's most likely going to be Disney property?

There is always the risk of a different hotel appearing when bidding (If the Disney hotels are the only hotels showing on the retail side of a service for a set of dates for example, there is absolutely the risk of getting a non-Disney hotel when bidding.) Unfortunately, the cheapest Disney property that I'm seeing via the discounted services for 3/1-4 is the Swan. Rates are definitely on the high side for the second and third night, so I would not expect much in the way of discounted inventory.  Given that Disney options less than the Swan for $201 for all three nights is unfortunately unlikely, which option would you like to take in terms of breaking up the stay?

We ended up using Priceline and stayed at the B resort in Disney Springs. To be honest, I didn’t love it and wouldn’t really recommend it although it serves it’s purpose.
