I was just going to post this! I didn’t known if it was new, or I had just missed it before as I just stumbled across it. I just booked for my December dayes and got the discoint at Swan. Those nights weren’t available for Dolphin.
The rate was much better than the AAA rate.
It should be 5% better. AAA rate says it is 25% off. AP is 30% off. Not sure what that amounts to in real dollars.
Like Disney - I think they have a certain amount of rooms in different categories and price points for different deals - so the pure “percentage off” can’t really be calculated.
Last night, I took the last room with an AP discount, priced at $319 for my dates (includes resort fee but not tax). I know this because they “hold” your reservation for 15 mins while you book it. I couldn’t get that price back when I accidentally navigated away, until 15 mins was up and the room I was holding went back into inventory. Then I booked it at the cheaper rate. Now only that higher rate I saw is being quoted for APs - $343.
I had been tracking AAA prices for awhile. Their cheapest rate is prepay/King (I got two Queens) for $351. The normal AAA rate (no prepay) is $385. The normal AAA for two Queen is $400 a night.
So that is a 15% differnece on today’s AP rate for a queen room. What I booked last night was 21% better.
Note - there are no Kings available under the AP.rate, and no rooms at the Dolphin - for my weekend.
Ugh. I hate that kind of thing. It is borderline false advertising.
So frustrating. But I am used to it because of what I have been going through with Disney. I qualify for 3 different discounts standard 25% off, D+ 35% off and AP 35% off.
Same resort, same dates has different inventory depending on which “deal” you are using. So I could only book AS Movies preferred under D+, not AP.
If I recall, at least any variation is price could at least be accounted for by differences in what room category was available. Prices have gone up as rooms are booking up - but that is fair.
Nice, just save $193 on a 3 night stay in August
You know, I just had a brilliant idea…and it won’t cost any of you ANY extra money (beyond what you were already willing to pay). That is, any money you save by rebooking using a discount…send me, in cash. I’ll collect it all and then pay for myself to take another trip!
Sure no problem, the check is in the mail. Keep an eye out for it
I use this strategy, except for my own trips
In October I will ne trying to get Guest Services to switch my unused Incredipass for a sorcer’s pass (in exchange for Disney credit). That will determine whehtwr I stay at AS Movies or Swan in December!
