Thank you for the reply... I used your BiddingHelper.com to review and if I move forward I will be using that site to bid.
My dates are Sept 7-13. I am actually kind of hoping for Swan/Dolphin. I already see the Dolphin available at 207 per night (1631.88 total). I was thinking of trying to get under that as much as possible (was thinking of bidding @125-150 a night and see what happens). I didn't want to bid the Dolphin due to how many other hotels four stars opens up.
From what I see, 4.5 stars, at Bonnet Creek, I believe that there is only 4 hotels that it would consider: Swan, Waldorf Astoria, Floridian and Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House...? The only two I see maybe accepting is Swan and Astoria, based on their lower PRICELINE prices. Astoria has a much higher Resort fee. Would the bid care about the 202.50 in resort fee (as opposed to Astoria's 270 for the same time-frame) or only care about the total price?
