Bounce back?

Is that still a thing? And if so, would I be absolutely insane (or just a little crazy, lol) to even consider doing a BB offer for Christmas week?

We were down in May (of this year) and I wasn't offered a bounce back. I would hope so that Disney is still doing these...


But your answer?...NO I don't think it would be Crazy! It will Definitely be Crazy that week though....It would be pretty Cool!...I hope you get a BB!

I would be surprised if a BB was available for that week. I don't know if they are still doing them, but they do tend to have black out dates, just like all the other deals that Disney offers. Good luck, though!

I’m with Pris in doubting that one is ever offered for Christmas week. That’s an increasingly popular time of year from what reports I’ve read.

I recall seeing people say they’d gotten one 4-5 years ago but hardly ever since then. We’ve never gotten a bounceback offer.

I suspect as popular as WDW has become, Disney simply doesn’t need to encourage people to return.

Last time we were there, back in March, I actively sought info on a bounce back. There was nothing in our room. I called for info and was told there was nothing at the time we were there.

Dot may be right. They don’t need to offer them. Maybe they will still do it from time to time, but I haven’t heard anything about it lately.

Good luck with it, though.

When I was there in the days leading up to Thanksgiving last year there was no info the room. I check with the front desk and the CM seem totally perplexed by my inquiry. I decided to call the reservation line from my room phone and asked about a bounceback. I already had a trip planned for this coming September so I was asking for those specific dates. I was able to snag a bounceback that saved me $1000 - we're staying Poly CL. It's worth a phone call

Thanks for telling me about that! That’s super helpful, and congrats to you! We absolutely LOVED the Poly 4 years ago, it was at the top of my Disney bucket list. Due to some TA magic ( or serious pixie dust, lol), we were upgraded to a club level park view room! It was so amazing! You will love it!

They are still doing them. We have family members who book almost all their trips with a bounce back offer.
