Those booked for an onsite Disney stay next year...

Will you still stay onsite if the usual perks are still absent?

We currently have 5 nights at BC club booked before 14 nights in a villa. We booked this pre covid, and prior to having this years holiday ( 14 nights YC) cancelled. Only paid deposit to far.

Starting to think that without free magic bands, 60 day FP, emh, ability to book 10 days of ADRs, Dining plan ( free or paid for)- it really isn’t worth the inflated price.

I know there is no answer at the minute- but wondered which ( if any) of these benefits are likely to come back next year- regardless of whether Covid is still the same problem it is now?

Anyone else thinking of cancelling onsite stays in light of this?

If things go back to normal but Disney don’t return the perks then we’ll probably stay at the Dolphin because we love that location. Actually, if there’s no free dining or room discount we’ll probably go with the Dolphin. We have it booked with a £15 deposit and free cancellation just in case.

Same, we are currently in a 1 bed in OKW next June but cant justify the expense if nothing changes so will definitely be looking at off site alternatives

I think we would look at Swan/ dolphin as the ne t alternative as same location- is it significantly cheaper?

We found the Dolphin on Travel Republic for around the same price as a Disney moderate - actually it’s quite a bit cheaper than POFQ. We’re going to keep an eye out once the direct prices are released in case we can get a better room for the price.

Some resorts don’t have a re-opening date yet but I don’t think any are “closing indefinitely”.

We booked with Disney for the first time for next year and got to select free magic bands. I thought it was for bookings made next year?

We booked for September, and the way we see it is we have until July 17th to commit and pay in full (or lose £100), so no real worries. Hopefully things steadily come back over the next year.

There was a cut off date which was sometime in March I think for free MBs. We just got in there.
