I checked a couple of dates and I did find that a single night on a Saturday in late July was $345. I also went farther out on a weekday in October and it was $105 for one night. Might have something to do with being new and so many people want to stay there they can get away with it for a few months.
I just have a hard time swallowing that price, even for a new resort, when I can take my family in August and get 2 rooms to accommodate all 8 of us at Port Orleans and not spend $400 per night. I am a huge Disney fan and love going to Disney World but I think I will wait a while before trying this resort.
Please bear in mind that the $345 price is for the Family suite, sleeping 6. A Standard room, sleeping 4 would only be $139 for the same nights. Of course, the only Standard Rooms will be in the Little Mermaid section (the last to open) and will be unavailable this august. The $105 in october is a standard room rate (not family suite - that would be $265 the same night)
I totally get what you're saying. It comes out to just under $2000 for 2 standard rooms. I still get a better deal through my travel agent at Port Orleans. I'm sure every resort has this period right after they open. I am just taken a little off guard by exactly how high the rates are. It is a beautiful resort and if those rooms were the only ones available I would pay the rate because I would rather be at Disney than sit at home.
