I am trying to book the Grand Floridian for Jan. 2010. It seems that every website online isn't taking reservations after Dec. 27. Why is that?

When I call Disney, they say they don't have rates yet for the new year but they can give me the Christmas rates in the weeks before which is $650/night for the least expensive . I'm not an idiot. I know those rates are probably more than mid January because before Thanksgiving and after is less than Thanksgiving week and before Christmas is less than Christmas week. I'm not falling for that.

January is only 3 months away. This doesn't make any sense to me as to why they don't have rates when every other hotel does. Don't know what to do but we would like a family Disney vacation.

It's quite possible they are sold out. Between the marathon and a couple of large conventions they host there every January, the resort can and does often sell out six months or more in advance.

And $650/night isn't all that far off, even in teh off season for that resort. They probably haven't set the 2010 rates yet. They will take a booking and a deposit based on the 2009 rates. Once they set 2010 rates, they will send you a note telling you what the rates are. If they are lower than your deposit you will get that as a credit. if they are higher, you will be charged the difference at check-in.

Check a site like Hotels.com or similar. They often have their own "block" of rooms that they reserve to resell to their customers at their rates. However, if you go this route I don't know if you can add-on things like Disney dining plan.
