Most 2013 Hotel and Package Bookings Now Available on Disney World Web Site

DISNEY WORLD 2013 PRICES RELEASED
As of this morning, almost all of 2013 is now priced and bookable on Walt Disney World’s web site.
Bookable dates go out 500 days, so later November and all of December 2013 is still not bookable. By my math, any arrival date in the year will be available by August 18, 2012.
If you neglect your real job and do a lot of test reservations, you can also infer the 2013 price seasons.
Having done so, it seems the projections on this site were dead on with a few exceptions:
- The regular season at the deluxes does not run from the week after Easter through mid-July. Instead, it ends May 30, and a new deluxe summer season–with slightly lower prices–runs from then til mid-July
- The fall season at the values and moderates starts a couple of weeks earlier than I had thought it would–on September 14th.
- December 2013 now has a third price season–“Peak”–from 12/13/2013 through 12/19/2013, making this week much more expensive than I’d thought it would be.
This site’s 2013 price seasons page is still labeled as “projected,” because while the “x% higher than the lowest of the year” stuff, is pretty close, there’s still a lot of detailed slogging to do…which will take a while…Also there seems to be some weirdness still in the Disney World 2013 prices (e.g. Caribbean Beach being $190 some nights, and $191 the next).
