Wow! This is going to be fun to try to figure out lol! Looking for either Sunday March 17 - 18th or Wednesday March 20 - 21st... or Any 3-4 days between Monday June 10th and Saturday June 15th... I'll definitely have to take notes before I try this myself..
Hotel Canary says it is likely to be Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo. HC didn't offer any other hotels/resorts as matches.

Edit: Sorry - I replied to the wrong post. Please ignore.

    First post ever! I have read that the Disney hotels are often listed on Priceline/Hotwire 6-8 weeks ahead of time. To everyone's experience - is that still the case? We are going 9/24-9/30 and I'm wondering if I'm way too early.

    (Hoping for CSR, WL, or GF. Seeing a lot of Jambo house, even now)

    It really seems to be a gamble as to what is available and when. There was a week or so mid-December where there were a ton of Disney hotels on the site. We were able to get AKL in January and Yacht Club for 3 nights in March during that time. I have been looking to add a few days to that trip in March and I'm not finding much. I also have been looking for a weekend in February with no luck, but maybe it is just the dates that I'm looking at have low availability. It seems like AKL Villas- Jambo is available a lot of dates in August and September. I can see it available for your dates now!

    So I'm pretty positive that free breakfast and pet friendly rooms confirm definitely not Disney right? Are there any other amenities that confirm 100% definitely not Disney resort? On hotwire, do Disney resorts *always* list airport shuttle? Pretty sure there are none for any of my dates on either site currently. :(

    Resort fees! No resort fees for Disney hotels. Not sure about hotwire, but PL shows them after you hit book now.

    Oh, ok! I was looking for resort fees and didn't see them! So you can hit book now, see the fees, and back out? I accidentally purchased a non-refundable groupon trying to add a discount code to check price and now I'm afraid of accidentally purchasing things... lol!

    Thanks for your help!

    We have 2 nights booked at a ft wilderness cabin 3/18-3/20 so was curious if there were any good deals 3/17-18 or 3/20-21.

    Then we're planning to come back for my daughter's birthday anytime the week of 6/9 - 6/14 for 3 nights or so. Maybe 4 if the deal was great! Looking for under $200/night. Currently considering ASMovies pref room for $120 but would love to upgrade lol.

    Yes, after you hit book it will give you a breakdown of the total cost and if there are resort fees listed, its not Disney.

    I didn't see anything for those dates, but if you're flexible you could always check closer! We added on a night at CSR the day before for $98.

    To anybody that has booked a deal in the last few weeks, how long did it take your confirmation number to work in MDE?

    I booked on Thurs and its not working yet, which I knew would probably happen but its KILLING me!! Especially because I don't want to cancel my other reservations until I know this one will go through. I'm starting to get nervous because my husband and my parents keep asking me about it!

    So all of a sudden my Hotel Canary isn't working. I know others have reported this but I've never had a problem with it not working! I uninstalled and reinstalled, shut down and restarted my chromebook and still nothing. Used to be I'd click the cloud icon and it'd say place your cursor above Hotel name and we'll tell you possible hotels. Now nothing! The screenshot is what I get.

    I even tried clicking choose this hotel and going to the next page but still nothing. Anyone have an advice? Just my luck now when I actually need the thing, grrrr

    Sorry to hear that. I just checked my HC extension and it is still working as usual. I hope you get it resolved soon!

    Ok, so how do I figure out if it’s likely a WDW resort or not? I’ve read all the comments but I’m still having trouble. I’m looking for a resort between Sept. 26-30. I’ve found a couple with no resort fees but can’t tell for sure if it’s WDW. Help!!

    Same here - booked on Thursday for late summer at AKL-Jambo. My confirmation number hasn't gone through either. I'm giving it a while longer, though, as everyone else's experience seems to be 2-5 days before it works (which seems odd to me that it takes so long - especially as part of the appeal is last minute trips for hotels that may only show up weeks in advance - no worries on this one, but I'd be frustrated if I was headed there soon and then had to wait days to link the reservation and finish planning). Please post once you get your confirmation to go through!
