Disney has released their 2020 pricing!
I’ve got a stack of quotes and I’m working through them quickly (or as quickly as the Disney site will let me move…).
It’s important to remember that hotel standards dictate that prices can only be quoted 499 days out, so even though 2020 does come out June 18th, we will only be able to book up through October 29th, 2020. And on June 19th, we can book through October 30th, 2020, and so on.
WHY SHOULD I BOOK NOW? DON’T I HAVE PLENTY OF TIME?
If your intentions are to make that Disney World trip in 2020, then contact me about your trip. Let’s get some quotes to you, let’s get you the info you need to make your decisions, and let’s put your $200 deposit down. The full deposit, or anything else you put down, is fully refundable until 30 days before your departure date.
WILL ROOMS REALLY SELL OUT THAT FAST?
Honestly… no. Not most of them. But the most popular rooms in the most popular resorts — standard rooms at moderates like Port Orleans, or many preferred rooms at some values, or the lower priced deluxe rooms — go fairly quickly. So sure, we will be able to find many rooms later, but to ensure you get exactly what you are looking for, it’s good to go ahead and get it. And we can move around, depending on availability, after booking.
SHOULDN’T I WAIT FOR DISCOUNTS?
Not necessarily. You could, but depending on when discounts are released, again, you may be out of the room you wanted. Discounts can be applied after booking, and even if you paid it off well before your trip, you’d be credited and refunded the difference. No regular discounts for 2020, not free dining, not “buy 4 days get a 5th ticket day free”, not room discounts, not a single regular discount is available right now for 2020, and will not be until later in this year, so waiting for discounts may mean you are waiting til well into late fall — and a lot of rooms you’d want will be gone by then.
AREN’T DISCOUNTS AUTOMATICALLY APPLIED?
Not at all. They are usually announced a day or two before hand, then released overnight. Sometimes its 3 in the morning, sometimes 5, sometimes even at 6 or 7am (CST). Either way, I’m up and at ’em around 3a, hitting refresh, trying to save my families as much as possible. You have allowed me to be a steward of your money, and one of my jobs for you to use it wisely — included saving you where I can. But if you do not manually apply the discounts once available, you will not be given any savings. And it’s by far much easier to apply a discount to an existing package than to try to book one at 415a!
It’s also important to note that no discounts are guaranteed… many times, Disney offers discounts on a very limited amount of rooms and when they are sold out, they are sold out. And no matter what rumors you hear, no matter what reliable website tells you information, NOTHING is official until Disney says so.
I AM MILITARY, WHAT ABOUT MY DISCOUNTS?
Military discounts are released later in the fall for the following year… and no matter what your package price is, your deposit will be $200 (if you just do room only, you’d just pay the first night’s room rate as deposit). Again, we book now, pay your deposit, and when military rates are released, I’ll do my very best to get them applied to your own trip.
HOW DO I GET 2020 PACKAGE INFORMATION???
Just get on my list! Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with some info — the party going to Disney World, ages of any kids, when you’re looking to go, how long you are looking to stay… and I’ll take it from there! I’ll get back to you within a day of price release.
IF YOU ARE JUST LOOKING UP PRICES, WHY DO I NEED YOU? I CAN DO THIS ON MY OWN, RIGHT?
You certainly can! To be fair, I’ll be looking up prices available to anyone… and as predicted, the website is slow and sluggish, and the hold times are long. So you can deal with the phone lines or the crashing website or all the troubles in the middle, or you can ask me to help, let me deal with the phone lines and crashing websites and such, then report back to you with all the info you need!
THIS IS ONLY FOR DISNEY WORLD… WHAT ABOUT 2020 DISNEY CRUISES? ADVENTURES BY DISNEY IN 2020? AULANI? WHAT ABOUT DISNEYLAND?
