2013 Disney World Resort Hotel Prices
By Dave Shute
DISNEY WORLD 2013 PRICES TO COME OUT NEXT WEEK
This means that the full 2013 Disney World resort hotel price schedule will be out by then as well. (2013 Disney World ticket prices were announced in June, and will be good until Disney raises them, likely in the summer of 2013.)
THE 2013 VALUE SEASON AT DISNEY WORLD TO BEGIN JANUARY 6TH?
We won’t know for sure until Disney release the prices itself, but it looks like the value season for 2013 won’t begin until January 6.
You can currently book into January 2013 if your arrival date is in 2012, and the 2013 prices Disney shows when you try to book, as I write this, are sky high January 1st, drop like a rock the 2nd, then go up again for the 3rd, 4th and 5th, and then on January 6 drop to what looks like value season levels for the rest of the month, other than the Marathon and holiday weekends.
This may change next week–the 2nd looks especially odd–but is consistent with the thought that the week beginning 12/29/2012 will be much busier than I had earlier forecast.
WHERE ARE THE JANUARY 2013 ITINERARIES?
However, Disney’s calendar for January 2013 is incomplete–it’s still missing Extra Magic Hours. These affect the itineraries, so I won’t publish material for January until they are up. Josh at easyWDW.com suggested last week that the delay is because Disney World is sorting out how to schedule and price for the crowds the week of the 29th, and perhaps also for the Marathon.
If Josh is right–and he usually is–then the January schedules should be sorted out by the 11th as well, and I’ll get the updates out as soon as I can after the Extra Magic Hours are posted.
