It may seem pretty obvious, but one thing they never tell you about booking your Disney World vacation is that the prices change throughout the year. Duh, right? Every tourist destination has it’s busy season and its off season.
The thing about Disney World is that their pricing seasons don’t always make immediate sense. And it fluctuates often and somewhat wildly.
For example, the cost of a standard-view room at Animal Kingdom Lodge varies considerably throughout the month of January. Guests paid $279/night on January 7, $342/night on January 10, and $335/night on January 18. Just try to make sense of that!
