The answer you don't want to hear - likely offers in early 2020 will be much less than before due to SWGE.Ok, I'm going to ask a question that I know everyone hates
Obviously booking for the fall must be up because this is being offered in the summer instead, most likely due to the Star Wars opening. What do you think this will mean for offers for early 2020? We are hoping the Stay, Play, Dine will be offered again in January 2020 but with a change in the free dining offer, its making me nervous!
Its just cost optimization for excess capacity. "Free" is a relative term in business that is not exclusive of costs to be incurred.Thing is, this isnt really free dining. Its just a discount unlike last year it previous years. You save about $600 this year while in previous years it was $1500.
I thought when I read through it that it looked like it was the actual free dining plan - not like the "summer dining plan" from years past that was really more of a discount. Am I missing something when looking at this one?Thing is, this isnt really free dining. Its just a discount unlike last year it previous years. You save about $600 this year while in previous years it was $1500.
October seems to naturally book itself. And Star Wars looks like work up to December.Very unusual for this to drop at the beginning of the year and with no notice.
My theory? Disney is expecting bookings to be very light during those months as folks wait for the opening of Galaxy's Edge. I'd also speculate that since it ends September 30th, we might be looking at an October opening for Galaxy's Edge and that we likely won't see free dining after September 30th this year.
I have no information to back that up. I'm not an insider. Just basing it on what has been released publicly so far and this unusual move by Disney.
What do you all think?
