Orlando Florida Reservations dot com? Any problems with using them?

I called the CRO last night to see about getting a room at the All-Star Movies and the price was $109 per night....and then when I asked about the FL resident discount she said they were out of those rooms. :o(

That is a little higher than we want to pay per night. Guess that's what I get for waiting until the last minute to decide to go to WDW....sigh.

But anyway, this orland fl reservations dot com has rooms at All-Star Movie for $88 per night.....but I've never booked rooms thru one of those type places (expedia, priceline, hotel dot com, etc) so I am a little nervous. Does anyone have any words of advice? Thanks!

I have never used them, but I have used Expedia and Travelocity with no problems, and they both book Disney rooms. I actually booked All Star Movies with Travelocity when CRO was all booked up.

When are you going?

We are going 10/7-10/11 (4 nights). Was hoping to get a rate as close to $77 per night as possible.....any ideas? TIA!

Are you a member of AAA? Disney offers about a 10% discount for that.

Also, are you interested in buying an annual pass? Annual passes are cost-effective if you are there 7 days or so during a year, and All Star Movies *may* have AP discounted rooms. If you buy the AP ONLY to get the room discount, it may not be worth it, but if you plan 2 or so trips to Disney in a year, it could be a good deal. Call and see if there are AP rooms left at All Star movies for your dates and then you can decide if you want to do that. You don't have to have an annual pass when you book the room, only when you check in.

Thanks Heather. No I don't think I'd get enough use from an annual pass just yet...maybe once the kids get a few years older.

Do you (or does anyone reading) know anything about the Hotel Royal Plaza in the Disney World resort? Mousesavers seems to rave about it. Just wondering if anyone has experience with it.

Still happily hunting for a place to lay our heads...LOL! Would love any suggestions for on or off-site hotels that yall have loved.

I've stayed there (HRP) and remember being impressed. The FL resident annual passes are IMO pretty cheap. It's 299 for adults for the 365 days pass and $189 for the pass with black out days this years are: June 7, 2003 - August 14, 2003; December 20, 2003 - January 3, 2004; April 3, 2004 - April 15, 2004; June 12, 2004 - August 19, 2004; December 18, 2004 - January 1, 2005. I think that intitles you to AP passholder discounts too.

You'd only need one annual pass and like the previous poster said 7 days and you've more than gotten your money's worth plus any discounts.
