Hey Dave, any idea why Little Mermaid rooms are explicitely excluded? Maybe it’s because they’re the best-seller in town? I’d certainly tend to think so… it’s value for price equation looks very solid

I booked our 2013 June vacation during the spring sale. I was told by the reservation agent that if a better advertised price came along I could be refunded the difference before our travel date. Now the summer sale has started but I can’t find the prices to see if they are less expensive (we’re staying at Art of Animation). Any idea if the summer sale prices are better than the spring sale prices? Thanks! Debbie

Tom–you got it, it’s because demand is so high for them as the new thing that Disney can fill them without discounting…

Hi Debbie, there’s a screen shot of the spring deal prices here: You can us it to compare the summer deal prices for the hotel you picked.

Thanks Dave! The summer sale prices look exactly the same as the spring sale prices (15% off Art of Animation rack room rates). Love your website!
