Stalled or not, they are definitely throwing out the deals.. From up to 40% off of rooms to gift cards up to $750 for 5 night stays.

Even if you are cutting back on luxuries some of these deals are very hard to ignore. I definitely take my mickey eared hat off to them on their deal tactics in bringing people in during a rough economy..

They just extended the %-age room discount deal into mid-August...and I'm hearing rumors that MSEP may be coming back to the Magic Kingdom this summer as well, now that DCA has its shiny new night time show.

It has been interesting to see how Disneyland out west here is marketed just as heavily as WDW was in Cleveland. Even the Google ads appearing on here show a lot of Disney stuff highlighting the deals.
