Says they are only bookable by phone right now. Trying to avoid opening more resorts?
I can’t link it because it was in a TA news email.
I should add that I knew they did it in the past, but it seemed to stop during covid. So I’m wondering if they’re bringing it back to delay any more resort openings.
Who or what is WDTC?
Walt Disney Travel Company I believe?
Are you saying Disney is directly helping customers book a third party hotel, similar to Swan / Dolphin / Bonnet Creek situation?
Yup, Walt Disney Travel Company.
And Margaritaville has privately owned cottages, so I’m guessing they brokered some kind of agreement with a property owner that has multiple cottages.
They have lots of relationships like that. Good neighbor hotels.
Yeah, I just thought that it was interesting that they decided to bring back that relationship rather than open more resorts.
Margarita like will be paying Disney handsomely for selling their resort I guess. If they pay enough they’ll earn onsite perks (when there are any).
How am I just hearing about this! New goal: live for a year in Margaritaville and get an AP!!!
