4* Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort, $64*, 1/22-24/2017, 2 nts.

Resort fees are prevalent in certain zones. Keep in mind that some hotels charge excessive resort fees which you may be unable to dispute as Priceline now states on their website that these fees are your responsibility.

My husband & I are going to drop in on Disney for a couple of days, before traveling onward to see my daughter in Florida.  The Sheraton was running at $179 regular rate.  Then I saw an Express Deal for $68 in the Disney Lake Buena Vista zone and figured that was probably the Sheraton. 

I clicked on the Priceline Hotels link above. I put in my 7 desired areas, which left me 9 free rebids.  I selected 4* and began bidding at $58, going up $1 at a time while adding a free rebid zone, until accepted at $64*.  I've gotten this hotel before at $60.  If I had waited until closer to our needed date to bid, perhaps I'd have gotten it at $60 again.  But I didn't want to wait 4-5 months.  I just felt like getting our hotel buttoned up.

The Sheraton is close to Disney, so that's nice.  It's nice enough.  I've never felt it's a true 4*.  But let's face it, $64* is a good deal for a hotel these days.

*Oh, Priceline adjusted the $64 to $63.30 because of the hotel fee that will be charged by the hotel.  At least that's the way I understand it.

Happy Bidding Everyone!

Be careful to pay attention to the little things in life, for some day, you may look back and realize, those were the BIG things.
