Are there still value, peak, etc seasons when it comes to the prices per night? When I booked last they had added the weekend as more expensive, but I was hoping there were still the seasons.
If so, anyone have a those? Or have a general idea?

Hiya, ducky...here's what I found from a Disney-based website called "Moms Panel" (http://disneyworldforum.disney.go.com/questions.aspx?sort=&page=&qid=48206&pid=80&cid=119).
This is actually a much more complicated question than it seems. Here are some things to know about the pricing seasons at WDW:
- The dates of the value, regular, and peak seasons change annually based on when certain holidays fall on the calendar (and other factors). The date of Easter can dramatically change the peak season dates in the spring.
- The value season dates may be different for the value resorts than for the deluxe resorts
Typically, the rates/dates for the following year are announced in the late summer.
- A good place to see the dates for each season for 2010 is at mousesavers.com. Search there for an article called "2010 Walt Disney World Resort Room Rates & Season Dates." (Or you could just click here, ducky!)
All that being said, generally you will find that the value season is most of January, February until Presidents week, late August through early October, and the first two weeks of December. Peak season is President's week through Easter week, the middle part of the summer, Thanksgiving week, and mid-December through New Year's Day. Most of the rest is value season. To check on where are specific resort falls on a specific date, call Disney reservations at 407-W-DISNEY or consult the mousesavers link above.

It seems to be getting more and more complicated. Thanks! :yes:
Oh sheesh, I forgot about mousesavers.
Another good site to check seasons quickly is allearsnet.com. They create a matrix for all of the resorts, including preferred rooms, views, weekends and all of that stuff.
Or you can check out the official Disney website--but I have to admit that one is very time consuming! Not at all well organized by my standards! :lol:
