We have reservations on September 29th thru October 6th. When we made our reservations there weren't any specials available. Should we expect to pay full price or do you think there will be any Fall Disney World specials? Our flights have already been paid for and were a FORTUNE! It would be nice if Disney could figure out that the expense of flights and gas could keep a family from coming to Disney so they need to offer specials. Thank you so much for all your info, Megan

No Disney hasn't announced any fall Disney World specials, but I do expect them too. Disney has been cutting back on the discounts they are making available, but they are still discounting.
Over the last 3 years, Disney has had some tremendous discounts, but lately they have been "weaning" the public from discounts (see the quote here).
I expect that in July or so, the discounts for the fall will be announced. But I've been wrong before. I didn't see these price increases coming this week. I didn't even hear rumors about it. That's unusual.
Dad's Bottom Line
Yes, it costs a lot to go to Disney, but as long as people keep flocking to Walt Disney World in near record numbers, Disney will keep the price as high as they can. That's not a bad thing. It is the way a business works. You charge as much as you can so you have money to make your product better. Yes, it's hard sometimes to swallow, but that's just good business.
