Why aren't there any deals for October 2018

We are going to take our girls 16 and 18 to WDW for our oldest's first fall break from college. I am so upset though that there are no deals for the month of October...free dining skips October all together Is there any chance something might be offered later?

I think they mostly offer discounts to pull people in during less busy times. Maybe someone else will have an idea of what's been offered in October in the past.

Meanwhile, do you qualify for other discounts, such as military? DoD and PHS civilians also can get some of those. Occasionally there are discounts for teachers or first responders.

Good luck!

I am a teacher...I did not think Disney offered deals to teachers. I will have to check on that.

I saw something about teachers this week, but didn't read it, sorry. I seem to recall something much earlier about the Swan and Dolphin offering teacher discounts sometimes.

I'm in a car (DH is driving) all day, so I can't really look this up, sorry! I hope you find something you can use for your trip.

I'm sure someone else will chime in with more info.

Okay, I saw some good info on www.weareteachers.com, which said the Swan and Dolphin have teacher discounts all year long. I don't know how reliable a source this is, but a google search should get you more info. Good luck!

Supply and demand is my guess as to why there are no discounts in October. If people have already booked rooms for October waiting for discounts, then Disney sees full rooms, not empty. Disney doesn't need to offer a discount to entice people to stay there. I think that's why POR, POFQ and All Star Movies are all excluded as well.

The room only offer only went until 10/7, so there may be discount to come that will include the rest of the fall.

This! I think there maybe another room discount roll out. That is not to say there will be anything in October unfortunately but hopefully.

Last year was the same - there was room discounts for early October but nothing the rest of the month. Why not? Because there were no rooms to discount! Disney only needs to offer discounts when they have empty rooms to sell. And between Columbus Day, Food & Wine, and Halloween, October has become one of the busiest times of the year to visit. There are already very few rooms available, especially in the Epcot area resorts.
