WDW 2015 Rack Rates Released

Unread post by The Sassagoula Sentinel » July 30th, 2014, 7:42 am

Walt Disney World has just released their hotel room 'rack rates' for the whole of 2015, including both of the Port Orleans resorts. See http://www.disneyworld.com and enter your required dates for a quote.

The full breakdown of all the 2015 rates for all room categories at Port Orleans are now available on the Room Rates page. Here's a quick overview of how they break down by season.


Riverside’s River View rooms are at their most expensive on Memorial Day ($340/night), when even at Christmas they are only $331! Even a Royal River View room is cheaper over that weekend. And in the Spring/Summer, the incremental increase from Standard View to River View is now as much as a whopping $78/night extra (it used to be about $25/$30 a few years ago):

This year the Royal Rooms seem to be going for much less of a premium than before — for example during the summer, Garden, Pool and River View Royal Rooms all cost exactly the same, just $6/night more than a Standard View Royal Room. So if you’re paying for a Royal Room anyway, definitely consider upgrading to River View:

The French Quarter premium rooms generally seem quite a bit cheaper than Riverside’s for similar dates, and there is somewhat less of an increment when moving up between categories. And during the summer, French Quarter’s River View is actually cheaper than Pool View:

Hi,

My family and I are looking at staying at Riverside in December 2015 (for our first time, we are from Sydney Australia) but I am getting the following notice:

This Resort is unavailable for the dates, party size or offer selected.

Does anyone know why?

Looks like they only have up to 15 Dec loaded so far, perhaps they are still sorting out the details of Xmas weeks? You can book up to departure date of 15 Dec if you want, and then add the other dates later - but you might as well wait until the whole period is released, it's not exactly going to sell out this far in advance.

In case anyone was wondering, the full details of all the 2015 rates for all room categories at Port Orleans, including graphical charts to help see the best rates, are now available on the Room Rates page. The graphs have highlighted some strange anomalies though...

Just some food for thought anyway.
