The 2005 rates for Walt Disney World Resorts were released this morning. They are room only rates, no packages yet. It is actually quite a bit earlier then what I expected. Usually the next year's rates come out in July.

The big news is that Disney has changed their seasons a bit. Most of November used to be Value season, and that is no longer the case. So, staying during November just got a bit more expensive then previous years.

These are rack rates, right? Most people will wait for discounts anyway.

Yes, they are rack rates. You can always book ahead, and then convert your reservation to a discounted rate. Some folks like to book early, and start paying the room off a little at a time.

Discounts will, of course, follow their normal routine of being released month by month. Annual Pass rates are out now into August 2004, and then there is the Dream Maker 5 plus 2 package that is good for stays through November.

Booking and paying off trips very far in advance, kinda forces you to go. ;-) I've never had a problem with new employers. I just tell them it's already booked and paid for....

Just move down here and work at WDW, then you don't have to worry about getting time off, and definately don't have to worry about booking rooms :lol:

So then now wouldn't be a good time to mention along with my long-to-me-drive to Disney (a whopping 25 miles! :lol:) I get free admission whenever I want without that pesky yearly renewal fee? ;)

I want to move closer, maybe not as close as you are, but definately closer than I am. 50 miles a day for work, even Disney, sucks.

I am house hunting right now. I have been able to keep within 10-15 min drive and still enjoy it all. Not as nice as I have it now but I do have to give a little.

Well, you all in Florida don't get to enjoy the freezing cold weather of New England like I do! Oh, wait, the freezing cold weather really isn't something I enjoy.....

Well, you all don't get to appreciate a 40ยบ sunny day after it had been 10 below zero for several consecutive days! Now honestly, that is a great feeling. And, the first real day of Spring, the sun feels warm, and that nice Spring smell is in the air. Yep, a slice of heaven!

We have talked about relocating to Florida some day. DH is retired, and I do my travel pixie business at home, along with answering phones for a floor business. So, there aren't jobs that are holding us to one area. The teenager graduates from high school in two years. Maybe after that we will consider it. It would be a big thing for me to leave New England. I really do love the change in seasons.
