    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

Hi. I’m hoping to find a deluxe or possibly moderate Disney resort for 4/20/19-4/26/19 at a great deal. I’m currently booked for those dates at POP Century for $156/night. I’m willing to go up to $250/night for a deluxe resort. I’m new to this process and don’t know if it’s too early to start looking for these deals. Thank you!

Welcome to BetterBidding!

 

Would the Swan/Dolphin be acceptable at under $250/nite?

... or Disney's All-Star Movies Resort at $175/nite?

... or Disney's All-Star Music Resort for $160/nite?

 

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

I'm seeing Animal Kingdom on HOTWIRE, but unfortunately for $382. 

 

4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $382.00
Free Internet
Shuttle
Smoke Free
Pool
Restaurant
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Childrens Activities
==>  Best guess would be the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which has been seen with this amenity set previously.

 

Also seeing on HOTWIRE:

 

3.5* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $220.00
Free Parking
Free Internet
Resort
Shuttle
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
Childrens Activities
==>  Best guess would be the Disney Coronado Springs Resort, which has been seen with this amenity set previously.

 

Unfortunately, rates are on the high side for these dates at what Disney properties are showing. Is $200 your desired max budget per night?

I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature).

If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 4 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates:

 

4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $169
Free Internet
Resort
Pet Friendly
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
 

The other feature of using the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW is that you can click on the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button and see that the Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort, Bonnet Creek would be the most likely outcome for this one.

 

Also, if you click the IS THIS A GOOD PRICE button (also in the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW) you can see that all of the 4 star and higher Disney properties are priced at over $400+ per nite, so the chances of one of these being offered at $169/nite is fairly low with prices being this high.

Let us know what you decide and how it goes or how we can be of further help.

Lucky4LeafClover,

Welcome Back to BetterBidding!

 

In the future please YOUR THREADS with whatever you decide to do for your trip (even if you don't end up using PRICELINE / HOTWIRE cancel the trip, book a regular rate hotel, etc) as this helps keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone, as well as being a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your travel plans.

 

As for your question above, sometimes HOTWIRE hotels (and PRICELINE EXPRESS too) will show a Bed Choice option which allows you choose the specific room class or configuration.  If this is not shown, then the room is booked 'Run of House' meaning that it will be assigned at check-in based upon what is available; generally speaking you should expect a 'standard' room... upgrades can, and do, happen but it's not something that you should count on.

 

Is the Animal Kingdom even showing thru HOTWIRE for your own dates of travel?  If you need help with an upcoming trip please start a NEW TOPIC and include the details of your trip (dates, budget, acceptable zones, desired star rating, etc, etc) along with any hotel offers you want us to research.

So do you think the 4* hotel on Priceline Express for $262 with these amenities is also Wilderness Lodge? 

Restaurant

Free Internet

Indoor or Outdoor Pool

 

Apparently I'm pickier than I thought. I was hoping for Animal Kingdom Lodge as we've not stayed there before. Thanks for your help!

For this one:

Any idea what this resort is? Resort under Disney Springs on Priceline for 4* $196/nt with:

 

  • Restaurant
  • Airport Shuttle
  • Free Internet available
  • Free Internet
  • Indoor or Outdoor Pool
  • Fitness Center

Share this post

I'm not seeing the offer above on a current PRICELINE EXPRESS search.

 

This one looks similar, but the prices is $228/nite (and not the $196 you listed above) so i can't say if it's the same hotel you're referring to or not:

4* Walt Disney World - Disney Springs (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $228/nite with:
Restaurant
Airport Shuttle
Free Internet available
Free Internet
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Fitness Center
 

However, it would seem to me that my now extending to Disney Springs you are moving further and further away from what you originally stated you were looking for...

 

Are you only looking to stay on-site? 

Why not the Wilderness Lodge? 

Are you going to hold out for the Animal Kingdom (or are you wiling to pay the $371/nite rate at the Animal Kingdom Lodge)?

I’d like a Disney hotel that we’ve not stayed at before. We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge on our last trip and to me it’s not worth an extra $100/night over what we have now.  

 

I looked again and it seems the $196/nt one I saw is gone or replaced with the $229/nt. I wasn’t sure what this was since it listed an airport shuttle and had no resort fee. I’m not sure what, if any, Disney resorts are listed as being in Disney Springs.

So we are only looking for:

Beach Club

Yacht Club

Animal Kingdom Lodge

Port Orleans Riverside

Port Orleans French Quarter

 

Where, and how much, is your current back-up reservation?

Yes. I’d be happy with any of those. We are now booked at a preferred room at All Star Movies for $143/nt. I’d be happy with that as it’s new to us and my young kids would like the theming, but if I can get something “better” I’d like to.

Yes, i got that, but to confirm.... these are the only hotels you are interested in, correct?

Based upon the current zone boundaries, all of the Disney owned properties are located in the Bonnet Creek zone.

I guess the all-stars was acceptable afterall.

Yes those are the only ones. 

 

 I had always heard that the All Stars were the lowest of the low at Disney but recently talked to someone who had nothing but good things to say about Movies, so I checked it out and thought we’d give it a try.
