  • [Question] 30% Off Promotion Blockout Dates

    Sooo as with every promotion, the 30% off a DLR hotel promotion has blockout dates. Unfortunately the trip that I wanted to plan (Feb 19-22) falls in a blockout date range. Does anybody know if DL is expecting a lot of guests that weekend? Or if there is some sort of convention? I understand that every promotion needs to have blockout dates, but it is generally when they expect there to be a large amount of people coming, and these dates just don't seem to fit that criteria. So, I guess what I'm asking is, how did DLR pick which days to offer 30% off?

    The 19th is the end of MLK weekend. They're expecting it to be busy, so I'm not terribly surprised that it's blocked out.

      Sorry, I was confusing January with February. Never mind. I'm no help.

            That's odd because Presidents Day ends on the 16th of Feb. I have no idea why they are blocked.

              Yeah they arranged it to INCLUDE president's day. I really do not understand that at all.

                We are going to WDW that weekend for my bday to see Block Party Bash! The rates in WDW are higher that weekend as well.. It is Washington's bday on that Sunday feb 22. I didn't think that was considered a holiday, is it?

                      It came in the mail for me. It was a big heavier pamphlet thing with a pin number on it that you used when you called to reserve.

                          I know a lot of schools have started doing a "mid-winter" break that takes place the week of President's day. So while your dates are at the end of that week, Disney may be expecting larger crowds reserving rooms for that time frame because of the school breaks. Hope that helps.
                          I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

                            Yeah, that makes sense, it just doesn't make sense that they'd plan it to include president's day but not include the next weekend because some children may be on break. It would make more sense to start it back up on the 19th.
