    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

Hello World

 

Nov 30th - Dec 8th or possibly the following week for a value resort family suite Disney World onsite?  For instance Lion king family suite, etc.  I will be traveling regardless during that time but one the next week too.  I am okay with not scoring a disney resort, but it will be an added bonus.  If I dont score a disney resort, I will reserve it from here.  Anyone have a good idea of my chances for that time frame?  Its the week after thanksgiving so should be slower.

Is T-6 out the best time to look? 

 

Thanks!

Welcome to BetterBidding!

 

The best time to book would be whenever you see a good deal at a property that works well and fits your needs; especially since you're looking for something specific.

 

How many adults/children do you need accommodations for?  What is your expected budget (per nite before fees/taxes)?

Thanks for the response thereuare.  I should have been more clear.

I feel like I could find great deals for that time frame throughout the year, but what I'm really trying to do is score a disney resort, specifically a value family suite, because I feel the discounted room will fall more into my budget of $200-$250, as those  rooms are $330 right now.

So I guess if you know historically, how far out is the best time for disney resorts?

Of course I do know by the very nature of hotwire it's a crapshoot so we will be happy regardless.

I have a family of 6, 4 children 2 small children so really any 4 person room will suffice, as the little ones have a portable bunk bed.

https://www.hotwire.com/hotels/details/MzAwMDg0NzM3NjU6MzAwMDg1MzQzNjg4OQ--

This is an example of one I just found.  I know it's not a disney but I wonder if I should expect these even up to 1 week out?

Thanks again

I'm traveling this holiday weekend so there may be a delay in our usual speedy responses, and we are trying to first respond to stays that are imminent (so stays that are 6+ months away are likely to have a longer delay).

HOTWIRE links to specific hotel offers expire about 30 minutes after the search, so if you click the link above you will see that it does not show any hotel information, and why we post the full details (star rating, zone, dates, amenities, room rate per nite, etc) of the hotel offer rather than just a link to it.

 

What does the hotel at the link above show... is it a hotel that is one week from arrival OR is it a hotel the actual dates you need (or something else)?  What specifically are you asking about the property offered above... would this same property be offered, will the prices be similar, etc?

My question is; historically how far from ETA is the best time to try to nab a Disney property?  

The link was to a 70% off bonnet Creek hotel, and I wonder if savings will dwindle as the date approaches.

I'm wondering as well if it is a pipe dream to expect to even get a Disney property for that time frame.

 

Didn't mean to be pushy, safe travels.

There is no 'ideal' time... sometimes hotels are offered well in advance of check-in, other times close to arrival date.

We have been seeing more Disney hotels than in years past, but i think the issue that you may encounter is having one of their suite rooms appear.

Found this last night.

Hotwire Hot Rate

2 adults 2 children

T/A 4.1 out of 5, 2000+ reviews

Nov. 30-Dec 7th

$206/night

Orlando, Bonnet Creek Area

3.5*

FULL AMENITIES:

Resort, Shuttle, Restaurant, Pool, Fitness, Smoke Free, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Golf, Spa, Childrens Activities, Free Parking

 

Also, there is no "% off", so hard for me to compare to regular rates.

 

Best guess?

I assume this is the offer that you're referring to, which i'm currently seeing for $236/nite when searching for 2adults/2children (not sure if the price changed or if you previously didn't include children when you saw the $206/nite rate):

 

3.5* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $236.00
Free Parking
Free Internet
Resort
Shuttle
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
Childrens Activities
==> from the Orlando Hotwire hotel list this matches previous reports for Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and would be my best guess for this one

 

Does this work for your needs at this price?

At this time no, due to it not being much of a savings.  I will continue looking in the weeks/months upcoming.

In addition to what you told me earlier though, it serves as confirmation that contrary to all of the blogs and articles I've read, on-site resorts are offered far in advance.

There is currently another that I believe value resort for the same period right now.

I will return though when I see something that has possibility, and I will make sure I book through this site.

 

Thank you
