    We have a reservation for Oct. 12 - 17 at the Port Orleans Riverside. My husband has advised that if no discounts or promotions come out for that date, we are going to have to cancel and go off-site. Help - are there any promotions for that time expected?

    Hi Nicole,

    I don't know of any specific promotions for those dates, but don't give up yet. Have you looked on the independent website That site has listings for nearly every discount known to man or mouse. You might also want to ask a travel agent if they know of any applicable discount codes. Or try checking the discount travel aggregator websites such as,, or I've often found Disney rooms there for much less than available through Disney directly. Another option is to switch to a value level resort rather than the moderate level Port Orleans. The rooms are a little smaller, but you still have access to the great Disney transportation, Extra Magic Hours and other perks. And remember, if you stay offsite, you'll likely need to rent a car, which would be an additional expense. We're happy to help you brainstorm other ideas. Just let us know what we can do to help.
