Does anyone know or have a ballpark estimate as to when the Holiday Vacation package promotion will be announced? Or when they announced last year? Not sure if I should book now or wait?

you can always book now and try and change your reservations if/when any deals are announced. I think past promotions were announced in Sept. time frame so I do not know what will happen this year.

I heard they are not doing any special promotions this year :( Ive had my room booked since April hoping prices would drop but no luck.

I noticed on another site that in previous years holiday offers were announced in September so MrsDisney68 may be right...

Sure doesn't look like it. I've been checking almost everyday since September for an AP hotel discount, nothing. I've taken the kids up for a stay at the Grand California every year for the past 9 years a few weeks before Christmas. I paid about $239 last year, this year, $414. Not going to happen. Looks like we will be going up for a day to look at the decorations and I'll let my Disney Visa Dollars roll over to next year. Very disappointed.

I only qualified for the basic10% military discount for our stay over Christmas. They are offering a 40% discount for military but not for my dates because we are staying Dec 22 till Dec 26. So for our 4 night stay standard view its about $2200. That's for the Grand Calif.

Thanks, looks like I'll book now. I appreciate it!

I too don't think it's going happen as it has in year's past. Nothing has since Carsland, period.

•September 21 through November 1, 2012

For the past 4 years I have also used the holiday discount that gets posted in Sept/Oct. I too, do not see it listed this year. It's a discount for staying on property. I'm glad DH and I decided to just go ahead and make our ressies a few weeks ago. I wouldn't want to wait until the last minute for a discount that might not come and not get the res I was hoping for.

I was hoping too, to get a discount at an on property hotel and not a good neighbor hotel.

I was able to get a decent rate for the week we are going (Nov, 25th - Nov. 29th) with a AAA card for PPH.

Hopefully they will still throw out a promo but I see in the previous posts that they don't really need to since CarsLand is so popular right now. Makes sense but not for me!
