Morning Maggie and thanks for the info!

I've been waiting a couple of days on this code before booking our honeymoon so I'm glad to see it out so quickly!

Can't phone for another 3hrs tho unfortunately lol.

So is it the same code letters to use as the Visa holders did a few days ago?

Gaspode
08-17-2006, 05:06 AM
Can phone in an hour :cheer2:

But looking at Mousesavers although at the top of the home page it says its now GP, when you click on the link its just all talk about the Visa rewardholders discount... I assume she may have copied and pasted not quite right but what I am not sure about is what code to quote - ZBD or ZBH lol.

Anyone shed any light? Would be much appreciated :)

Oh well...no code available for my dates of 11/18 - 11/25 at either the Poly, CR or GF. The CM did tell me they had BCC available, but DH insists on being on the monorail for T-day week, so that leaves that out.

Good luck to everyone, hope the code works for you.

I got through immediately and NADA! We are going November 26- December 3 at the Poly. We originally had a standard room, but I asked her to check standard, MK, and lagoon, and NADA. Then, I asked her to check CR, NADA. The only monorail resort she had was GF, and we just don't think want to stay there. Was the Poly EVER open that week?! I mean, I called again 10 minutes until closing last night, and there was still nothing with ZBD, and then first thing this morning with ZBH, so I guess they did NOT open any extra rooms for the public today at the Poly or CR that week?.........

I just upgraded with the FL Rest.code from POR to AKL and it was only a $242 dollar difference.............YAHOOO!!! So doing the happy dance. Have always wanted to stay at AKL and since this will be the last trip for us to WDW for a while I thought why not.
I'm going to keep this a surprise from my family and let them think we are still stying at POR.

Using code ZBH:

Original package: Pop from 11/3-11/11, 3 parkhoppers (2A 1C) w/ dining, $2284.32

Offered for same as above: $1871.78

Checked on AKL Standard view: Available, would have been $2968 with code. Without code it would have been $3669.

Took: POR (POFQ not available) Standard room, 2319.78. Without code, $2823. This is the one we took.

412.54 would have been our refund had we taken it from our original package.

503.22 is what we saved off of the package price staying at a mod.

We spent $35.46 to move from a value to a mod for 8 nights.

Hmm sorta similar to what I@m after in a way - Pop 11/16 thru 11/28 with dining, 12 nights with 9 day PH & water park tix for 2A (honeymoon).

Hopefully we can get it. DFi wants me to ask what the price for POR is also but Im happy to stick with Pop :0)

Currently we dont' have hotel ressie at all (only just recently decided to do the honeymoon in WDW) so I need to get *something* today. Guess I'll sit on hold as long as it takes!

Yep NovDis -I've been on hold for 32mins now (called right at 7am). I was a bit worried I might be stuck in a loop I'll never get out of ***' a man kept announcing about ME and EMH - but then he said goodbye and its been songs ever since so I'm more positive now ;)

Lets stick with it! Hanging up and calling back will most likely put us further back int he queue.

Just got off the phone. We orginally had reserved a LVC room at the poly for Dec 7-15th, but that was not available for our dates using the code. She did tell me they still had the MK view available so I changed our ressie to that. We saved over $1200.00 switching to the MK view using code ZBH. :banana:

Congrats!! I managed to get what I wanted too. I was worried b/c mousesavers aid black out maybe 12.2-12.8, my exact dates. but no problem, we got it added to our caribbean beach ressie.Saved $270. off our ressie, but I made our tix 10 day hoppers with no expiration, b/c we had a 2nd room that we saved another 270 off, with the savinggs our tix upgrade cost $60. So it would have cost us 1138 to buy these tix, so I view my savings as $1076 off next trip!!

I called right @ 7a and was only on hold for 15 mins-what a surprise I thought for sure at least 30 mins. Got the Fl Rest. Rate and upgraded from POR to AKL for only $242 more. I'm in shock have always wanted to stay at AKL. Can't wait until Oct.

Hey everyone, first post, but I wanted to let you know the deal:

10/14-10/19, 5 nights stay, POFQ, 6-day non-hopper pass, MYWPD

At regular rack rate pricing: $2397.30
With the ZBH public code: $2090.70
That's a savings of $306.60, or 12.8 % of the price. If the savings were just off the hotel, it would be a 30 % savings. I suspect that it is off both the hotel and the dining, else why bother having a separate code for the dining deal.

Be warned, the first price I was quoted by the CM was wrong. I questioned it, and he discovered that the code had not entered properly. Be aware of what the non-discount rate is going into this, and make the CM check.

Happy days, only 58 days away!!

:cool1:

i was on hold for around 40mins and have now been chatting to a CM for about 15/20mins and *nothing* is available at all (we have no hotel ressie at present so I'm booking from scratch).

Hope she can figure something out!!

Is there a difference in these two packages? I am seeing two different codes and don't know what the difference is.

ZBG is for the General Public
ZBC is for Disney Visa Cardholders
Both are for Magic Your Way packages

ZBH is for General Public
ZBD is for Disney Visa Cardholders
Both are for Magic Your Way + Dining packages

So the CM I'm on the line with can get us a room only discount but NOT a package rate (we want dining). If we add dining then we have to pay rack rate.

Eep. She has now put me on hold again perhaps she has gone to find out how to fix this!

NovDis

I was able to get a discount on the first portion of our trip :Pinkbounc , but not the 2nd. AKL Concierge is not being discounted, so I kept my AAA rate with that. Here is what I was able to get for 3 nights value season:
GF LV with 3 base tickets and dining: $2,104.59 (including taxes, no insurance)
The CM quoted that rack rate would be $2,487.

The strange thing is when I quote this same trip online through Disney, it comes up as $2,226 for rack rate. Any ideas why it would be different than what the CM says.
I still booked with the code since it saves over both, but I am curious why there is the discrepancy.

It can't hurt to ask him/her if she could check with another CM to verify the dining can't be added. Be nice, but push the issue. If still no luck, call back! Maybe you got s dud. Good luck.

Yes? But I came up with a slightly better value (at least for my dates, 11/3-11/11) than the reported discounts from other DIS'ers on value and mod rooms. The one quote I got for a deluxe (AKL) was exactly the same as others had reported for the same room type (standard).

I already have a room only res, should I be trying to change this or make a new one.

There are 3 adults and one 5 year old. We are staying at the POR with the dining package, and 6 day base park tickets. Our total price initially was $3038.33, after code was applied, the price is now $2597.12.

I called this morning (waited 35 min) and the CM asked me for the code, put me on hold for 5 min. came back and told me there was no availability during the time I am going - I even asked if I changed hotels, and he said no availability - October 21 - 28.

I am calling back because honestly, I just can't believe that NO HOTEL has availability for the code during this time.

Thanks I will keep trying :). We have 4 and they did offer me akl, but it was over $5,000.00 for the 8 nights with hopper and dinning, maybe it was a bigger room, because that seemed really high. Will keep trying..

I called this morning (waited 35 min) and the CM asked me for the code, put me on hold for 5 min. came back and told me there was no availability during the time I am going - I even asked if I changed hotels, and he said no availability - October 21 - 28.

I am calling back because honestly, I just can't believe that NO HOTEL has availability for the code during this time.


I'm there the same time at ASMo, I was told the same thing after a few seconds. I'm on hold again right now.

Where do you want to stay

I just checked disneyworld.com and our ressies is on there with the new price, but doesn't list the dining on it. Does anyone know if that is how it usually displays?

That seems really inexpensive for the CR unless I'm reading CRS wrong. Do you mean Contemporary Standard? I would call back just to confirm you have dining.

Please help me!!!!!


I have a room booked for WL and when I called CRo (on the phone with them now!) they told me that they can't apply the code to my ressie!!! They said I would lose my reservation and nothing is available at the WL!!! Can this be true that I can not upgrade my reservation to a package? :confused3

I have WL booked, 2 rooms Courtyard in Dec. for 8 nights w/ the dining. They were able to apply the ZBH code.....savings for 2 rooms with package is only $648, but I'll take it. I could have saved another $360 with a woodsview, but by the time she was putting it into the computer, only one room was left, so I kept my courtyard views because we want adjoining rooms.

They should be able to book a new package for you with a discount code (if available), and then cancel your room only reservation. Try calling back to see if you can get a different CM to help you. Oh, I just realized that they said that nothing is available at WL with a discount, then they are right. They can't upgrade a room only to a package, they are in 2 different systems.

Mine is the same thing, I booked with dining, she confirmed with dining, but online does nto show. If I remember last time i booked with a discount code, it took online 2-3 days to catch up wth the discount code and display that. The price was right, as to what I was told, but the info needed to be loaded. Just give it a few days. I am not gonna worry yet.(YET!!)

I already booked, but did not charge the full amount yet. Can the price of my package be discounted?

PrincessTrisha
08-17-2006, 07:59 AM
Yeah! I called back and was offered either a Waterview room at the Yacht club (which would have been $100 less for the package than what I was paying for a standard view room) or I could switched to a standard view room at the Beach Club with the discount.

I switched.

So:

October 21-28 Standard View at the Beach Club 3 Adults / 1 Junior (age 17)
1 day base tickets plus dining plan = $3651.97

Original price $4250

Savings $598

Did you have any luck???

Yep :woohoo:!

My story is kinda complicated, I'll try to keep it short:

Phoned from England at approx 7.04am FL time. Got stuck on hold until approx 7.44am FL time (40mins wait).

Got a great CM but then the trouble started - she couldnt' seem to get us in ANYWHERE for our dates (11/16-11/28). Just nothing available at all. After about 15mins or so of that she figured she could get us room only with the discount - no good we wanted dining (and it turned out the room only thing wasn't working right either - I believe becuase this is a package discount rate).

About 8.20am FL time she came back after a period of me being on hold again with the answer - and I should have known it! We were trying to book 12 nights and, at present, the CRO system can only handle 10 night reservations! If you want longer you have to book two separate ones and request them to be linked (so hopefully you don't have to move rooms).

That being said she was now able to get the discount and another half hour later we finally got the following:

POP was unavailable for our dates so she looked at the Mods for us (my DFi wanted to upgrade if the discount meant we could afford it anyway).... so we are in for Port Orleans Riverside.

11/16 - 11/25 (9 nights) POR, 2A, Standard view, with 10day Park Hopper & Water Park ticket plus dining = $2289

11/25 - 11/28 (3 nights) POR, 2A, Standard view, with 1day Park hopper & water park ticket plus dining = $698

We had to book a 9 night and then 3 night because the discount code only works over 3night stays :)

Worked out to British Pounds Sterling this is basically what we would have paid to stay at Pop without discount so our upgrade to mod works out about free!

I did some working out on disney.com just now and I *believe* the discount code saved us somewhere in the region of $998! Sounds amazingly high tho' but I'll take it ;)

That could be correct, but it sounds a little high. We did the exact same thing (upgrade from Pop to POR, but for 8 nights only, 11/3-11/11 and saved about $450 off of what it would have cost for us to upgrade normally, after the discount we paid $38 more to stay at a mod than the value.

Good luck Cinderumbrella to get that upgrade! Perhaps if you do we'll still see you there since we are eating at Boma one day and Jiko another :)

BT - Yeah, I thought it sounded high. Perhaps it is because that is over two bookings - on the 9night reservation I believe we saved $567 and on the 3night $380ish

dbmarie, I was wondering the same thing about the travel dates...we check in 12/19 and leave 12/28...I booked for the first time with a AAA travel agent because I thought some discount was better than no discount! I called to tell her this package was coming out today and to have my reservation pulled to call and have it applied to my package. She said if something came out, she will go through all her files it applies to. I called her this morning to confirm it was available and she should try and apply it to mine. Well, now she tells me she does not know if it will work for me because you have to have travel completed by 12/23. I tried to tell her that I believed you had to check in by 12/23, but she seems to think she's right. I told her I would call Disney myself to verify, but she said she was on hold with them anyway and would check. (how is she on hold with them, but taking calls from me??)

Staying at Pop Century with 1 day base ticket:

$634.83 (down payment was $200 with balance due Aug. 30th)

With dining I was quoted:

$1318.65 ( If my husband was going I would buy the dining plan, but it's just me and my 13 yr old DD)

I am utterly and completely happy! :yay:

OT: The CM paused and then rattled away at the key board, then paused again and then rattled away again. :surfweb: I had to smile-isn't that on a movie (Meet the Parents-when he's trying to buy an airline ticket)? :happytv:

Have a great "package finding" day everyone!!

I read that the code is not applicable to AKL Concierge level, which is what we have for 1/2 of our trip, but I am wondering whether it applies to Beach Club concierge? We did ours initially with the AAA discount, so I am unsure whether I come out ahead. I will have to go through the TA, and can't do that just yet today, but I would like to be ready with the knowledge, just in case.

Ok I had the following book with no other code.
Contemporary Bay View Room with Dining with one day park hoppers for 2 adults, 2 children and one junior. My total was $3,529.79

When I called this morning I was told that the Contemporary was out for the discount. But I could get the following:

Dates 11/26-12-2 (Same info as above)
Poly $3,016.00
BC $2,949.00
POR room with trundle $1,801.00

I picked the Poly but now I am considering the Beach Club. (I wanted the Poly to be something romantic for DH and me and NOT with three kids. I guess I better go look at the photos)

Our totally awesome AAA TA got the discount applied for us this morning -- saving us another $800 over the AAA rate, or $1200 total!!! :cheer2:

We have 2 rooms, AKL savannah, w/dining, Nov. 12-19.

Glad you have a great AAA TA--mine on the other hand is not so great. She is is out of town and when I told her about the codes (before she left) she passed my file along to someone else. The person she passed my file along to has no idea what she is doing. I called CRO to see if there were even rooms available during my visit with the code and there were. I would save $300 over my AAA discount. When I called my AAA "substitute" rep back, she said she called and the code can not be applied to the AAA discount---DUH!!!! I could have told her that! Now she tells me she will have to call me later--she has someone at her desk! THIS IS WAY TOO FRUSTRATING! This person incompedence could cost me $300!!! :furious: :furious: :furious: :furious:

Hi Ho,

Well after sitting on the boards for several days and reading countless messages AND bugging my TA several times...we changed our reservations from POR (we sooooo love POR) to CSR. We have never stayed at Coronado and wanted to give it a try. So i just changed that like yesterday (g)

So now..... Muhahahahaha

I called CRO and booked the same time as a back-up in case my TA has difficulties.

We were quoted from the TA of $2,145 for 8 nights, 2-1day passes and DDP for the stay. I called this morning and after a 42 minute wait on hold, we discussed it and I booked at $1,735.28. A savings of over $410!!! Woot! :cool1:

Last night my partner and talked about all our plans and he said he was getting so confused with all the options and discounts and what have you. I calmly said to him, its ok dear I have it ALL under control and know exactly what's happening. What i didint tellhim was that I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for this discount to happen and happen it did. Wahoo! :bounce:

We had also talked if the discount came through, then upgrading to WL as it is someplace I have wanted to stay and we passed it up last trip, to do AKL instead. We ruled it out and said we could use the money we save for our passes and more spending money ;) I'll tell you I was sooo sorely tempted to upgrade anyway and do WL..it WAS available, but I said no I was happy with what I had and I am so tired of changing the reservations...seeing this was the 4th change and it WILL be the last. Well, once we get the TA situation cleared up ;) LOL! :dance3:

From dialing CRO to hanging up, I was on the phone less than 10 minutes!

Didn't save a huge amout, though. I think it worked out to about $117.

Staying at Pop beginning 12/15 for 5 nights, with 7 day park tickets (with water +, but expiring and no hop). - We rented DVC points at okw beginning 12/10, so that part won't count with the discount, just the Pop Century MYW package (no dining).

Anyhow was quoted $1449.44 - $117 is cool though!

- Thank you Dis!

We are going 11/18 - 11/25 at the Poly...no codes for Poly, CR, GF.

Okay, I am using a new place to book my Disney reservation. My original reservation:
5 nights/5 days at All Star Sports with dining
3 Adults, Me, DH and DS(10)
1 Child DS (5)

Original Quote is $1884.15 I want a code oh so badly!!! I've emailed my person about the code and she is working hard at getting one for me!! I just hope the pixie dust :wizard: comes my way.

But just curious as to what kind of discount I would get---CAN ANYBODY FIGURE THIS OUT FOR ME?

I think I might have to change my reservation to 5 nights/6 days-anyone?? :confused3

Now she tells me she will have to call me later--she has someone at her desk! THIS IS WAY TOO FRUSTRATING! This person incompedence could cost me $300!!! :furious: :furious: :furious: :furious:

You can call Disney and book the package yourself if you want, and then cancel the AAA package. When my TA first called this morning at 7 am, she got a CM who told her there was nothing available at all for the entire week at AKL. My TA said she would try again when she got to work. Meanwhile, I called Disney and got a TA who was able to book the package with a code for me. She said it wouldn't interfere with the AAA reservation because that one was not in there system under my name.

Anyway, apparently my TA had tried again and called me to say she got the code applied, so I'm sticking with her package so she gets the commission (she's been a great - even went so far as to call from home this morning since she doesn't go in to the office until 10:30 am).

Good luck! pixiedust:

It is my understanding that if the ADRs are connected to your home phone number, you won't lose them. Did you make them yourself, or did your TA?

You also don't have to cancel the AAA package first, so you can call and talk to a CM and see if you can book everything you want without losing your existing reservation.

I understand totally how frustrated you are...it was hard for me to give up control of our reservation, but when we initially booked it we wanted to add the dining plan and the only way to get the AAA discount with the DDP was through AAA. I think I got really lucky with my TA.

Hi to all,

I don't know if it is an estupid question, but there it goes:

I want to stay 8 nights with dining plan, in my case in principle I have to use the code ZBH. But I read that if I booked a packagge without DDP using the code ZBG and after that I ask to add the dining plan is it worther?? I mean with this way I can obtain a cheaper price.

What do you think about it??

In my case with the code ZBH, 8 nights in POFQ with 7 days park hooper plus DDP, the total price is 2003.86 $, is it ok?

Sorry I'm spanish and i don't know if you can understand me.

Thanks to all.

Disboarders I love you!!!! I don't check the boards everyday, but I did this morning and saw this thread!!!

My original package was:
POP 9 nts 10/27 -11/5
Magic Your Way w Dining
8 day Park Hoppers and Water Parks and more tickets
1 adult
1 13 yr old
1 12 yr old
originally quoted $2984.00
after ZBH code $2415.75
Savings: 568.00!

BUT!!!!! I changed the res to standard at POR for same as above and new package is $2919.84 so Moderate is $64.16 less expensive than I was originally planning on! :dance3: This is SO wonderful. I want to tell my sons who really wanted to stay at POR, but I'll try to surprise them.

Thank you to all of you for this information. You and WDW have really sprinkled the pixie dust our way and good luck to everyone else trying for the package! Thanks to my CM Reese! She was awesome.

I think I understand your question. It seems from reading everyone's posts that the discount portion of the package is only on the room, so it would probably not matter whether you added the dining with the package or afterward, as that part is not discounted either way.

How many people are going with you? That will help us to tell if you were quoted a good price or not.

Hope this helps!

I was originally looking at AS Movies for December 11th for four nights at a standard room with passes (just park hopper option added). There would be 2 adults and 2 children. I originally had a rate of $1283 from the website.

I am now holding a reservation for AS Movies for December for five nights with a preferred room with passes (again only park hopper option). With the new general public code my new rate is $1275.

So with the code I got an extra night added to the reservation plus a preferred room now.

Thanks for all the help everyone.

You don't lose your ADR even if you cancel your trip. They still remain. I had a trip planned for August that I cancelled and I had to call back to cancel my CRT and other ADR's.

Just got off the phone with the nicest CM - Jolene.
She checked the package with and with out dining and I chose without dining (because we like to be flexible) and I saved $230 over what I had been quoted a week ago for the same package. Paying $978 for 9 nights.
We are staying at POP from 12/8-12/17.
Jolene also told me that she had been putting in the codes all morning and nothing was coming up (available) and she was excited for me when she found that the code worked for these dates at POP.
So for those of you still trying - I am sending pixie dust your way!!!

We have booked the BWI for 10/7 - 10/15 with an AAA rate. Called my AAA TA, he checked and said there is no availability for the week we are going at any of the Deluxes. I tried to call Disney myself, but they wouldn't give me any information. They said I must go through AAA. I would like to keep calling back every day to check, but I guess I can't because they know I have already booked through AAA.

When I priced the packages on line - the hotel was $79 and the tickets were discounted (as part of the package).

So it looks like that the hotel is $59 and the discounted tickets did not change.

?????? Just my take on it.

Well, I guess the code isn't any help to me. I had originally booked 1 night at ASMu 11/10 and 2 nights at WL 11/11 and 11/12 using the AAA rate. I called CRO with the code and she said, first off, all three nights would have to be at the same resort. So I said, OK, price all three nights at WL. Unfortunately that was a no go as she said all they had available on those dates were rooms in the villas. The room only portion would be $181 HIGHER than three nights at WL on the AAA rate and $486 higher than leaving my reservation alone with first night at ASMu and two nights at WL. I guess the WL fills up quickly due to its popularity, and the woman said that of course the code is only good when they have surplus availablity at a resort.

Odd, though, it seems there should be rooms available for the two nights I already have booked since I would be switching the room over from a AAA reservation to a CRO reservation, but it's still my room in either case. :confused3

CBR
12/7 - 12/11
MYW w/ dining and 5-day hoppers
Original total: $2374.40

New total with ZBH code: $2194.

Every penny counts! The only thing that bothers me is that we had a preferred room, but now they have us officially in a water-view room. They said there was no code availability for preferred buildings/rooms.

BUT, this is not a preference for us -- it is a necessity. My father is blind, and as long as we are in the closest building to the food court and bus stop, his guide dog can quickly learn the route from our room to these places... and then my father can go get his coffee himself, etc., which he really likes to be able to do. They still have all the special needs requests spelled out, but now they won't "guarantee" it. I doubt we'll have a problem -- they have always been so nice and willing to accomodate -- but it just makes me nervous. Being stuck in Trinidad South or something would not be do-able at all. :(

I'm going to see if there's a way to contact the Special Needs department directly. I sure don't think it's fair that we would have to lose the discount and pay more just so that my dad's needs can be met, you know? Hopefully I'm stressing over nothing!

Quick question, what time did you call to get POFQ? Every time I call they say nothing is available!

I am in Spain and I called at 4 pm (GMT +1)

Could you please help me with my question??

Savings on the POFQ is 445.64, and only costing you about $91 to upgrade to a mod hotel----I think that is a great savings. And probably not going to get a better rate, sounds like a good deal to me!

For those of you who are booking tickets and hotel with no dining and asssuming the ticket prices are not discounted what is the rate you are getting for the hotel per night?

For the All-Stars and Pop Century standard room it is roughly $49 before tax


It is definitely not discounting tickets, I used our discount to upgrade to 10 day hoppers with no expiration, and the CM specifically said there is no discount on the tix. (but hey, we have em for next time now.) we are staying CBR 12.2-12.8, value season, 2ad 2ch, and hotel portion I am figuring out i $99 per night plus tax. Saved us 40 a night! Not too bad, I won't complain over any savings!!

THIS is one of the many reasons I LOVE Magical Journeys! We've had POR booked for Oct. 21-28 since April. I still had a balance of $475 due by Sept. 5th....Melissa emailed me this morning...I saved $430!!! My balance is only $45 now!!! I don't have to do ANYTHING....MJ does it ALL....I love, love, love, 'em!!! :cool1: :cool1: :cool1:

Every time a code comes out, MJ is ON TOP of it....and my discount is added...YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I love them too. :)
I also got an email this morning.

Finally, I can get back to work. I've been doing nothing but stressing over the packages and hotels for our honeymoon for weeks! But I finally have it booked. I phoned this morning and upgraded our POR reservation to the Polynesian. We are staying in a garden view room (unless a bucket of pixie dust comes our way with an upgrade pixiedust: ). Here's the breakdown for those interested:

POR from 10/9 - 10/15 in King Room with Dining and 5-day Park hoppers
was a total of: $2137.88

Polynesian from 10/9 - 10/15 in Garden View with Dining and 5-day Park hoppers was a total of: $3447.44 before ZBH code, and $2839.88 after code, for a total savings of $607.56! So, for a little more than $100 a day, we go from a moderate to a monorail!

Thank you everyone for answering all of my silly questions, and listening to my rants while I stressed over the process. :thumbsup2

I LOVE the DIS! :love:

I just called and made a reservation

12/2-12/10 at CSR King Bed, 7 day tickets with park hopper and dining.

According to the disney web site, rack rate for that package is 2507, and we got ours for 2147 so a savings of $360! I'm pretty excited :)

Hi Everyone,

I called at 12:30 EST and was on hold less than 10 minutes. Here's what I have:

Beach Club - Standard Room 6 nights, trip insurance, dining, park hopper for 6 days = $2894.48
That comes out to $308/night

They also had Beach Club Water View for $333.20.

Good luck!!!!

I called this morning in hopes of applying the new discount code to my existing package reservation (12/21 - 12/27, ASMo, parkhopper tickets with dining). I was told "Nope, not unless you change resorts". Well, the CM didn't even ask what code I wanted to use (maybe she already had an idea, being the majority of phone calls were using this new code) So, long story short, I wasn't able to use the discount code because DD and DS have their hearts set on staying at ASMo again.

Thanks for the info. I was wondering how much more a night it would be to stay at the moderates vs value. I guess I will stick with the $49 rate I was quoted and spend the extra on souveniers and food.

I am going to call when I get home today. Probably too late. I have Poly GV booked for 11/17-11-25 AAA rate of like $35 off rack. What are you guys getting off the Poly per night? I also already have tickets for 3 of us. I only need 1 Adult and 1 child 7 day hopper. What do you suggest?

Thanks

Here's what I've learned so far from my phone calls to Disney reservations:

We had a 6-night ressie in Dec. at PO-R with AAA rate, no tickets: $743.00
Would be purchasing 5- 5 day base tickets: $1096.05
Total for rooms and tickets: $1839.95
If I switched to the package with 5-5 day base tickets, total is $1733.73

So we would have saved just over $100 with the Disney Visa package rate. We decided not to switch, just because switching to a package changes the payment and cancellation policy, and it wasn't worth it to us.

I also got a price at AKL. We would need 2 rooms, but my mom is coming so one of my kids could stay in her room. 6 nights in a standard room at AKL with 4-5 day base tickets was $1993.20. 6 nights in standard room at AKL with 1-5 day base ticket was $1353.87. 6 nights in standard room at AKL with 2 - 5 day base tickets was $1566.96. So the difference in adding an extra 5 day base ticket was $213.09, which discounts that ticket $6.30. The CM I spoke to did say the tickets were discounted slightly in the package.

However, I didn't change anything because I would really like to upgrade to WL, but nothing available - with AAA discount or Visa package. Wonder what's up in December at the WL??

Hope this helps! :wave:

This is my case:

2 adults
POFQ (10/1 to 10/9, 8 nights)
DDP
7 days park hooper
2003.86 $
Code discount applied ZBH

My previous reservation was the same but in POP and the price is 1827 $

Is it ok? or can I obtain more discounts??

Thanks to all. Regards.

SantiJB, I think this is a good deal. For only $173 you are upgrading to a great resort. I don't think you will be able to get any further discounts. Just your DDP and tickets alone are almost half of the package cost, so you are getting a good price on the room!

Enjoy your trip!!! :banana:

So ASMo is not participating in the codes? Or do you think CM meant ASMo had no other openings w/the code?

08-17-2006, 01:08 PM
My TA said she had to change us from a standard to a preferred room to get us the discount. So we went from a Standard at 7day/6night ASMo w/5 day park hoppers plus dinning to a Perferred at 7day/6night ASMo w/5 day park hopper plus dinning. Our price difference is $100.98 in our favor. Now I'm happy to be saving $101, but I wonder if I should be saving more. I realize most that post on here are staying longer, and at mod or del hotels, and that's probably why everyone seems to be saving so much more. Could someone tell me how the discount works? Is it a certain percentage off your room or off your entire package? :confused3

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and DisneyMoon! DH & I DisneyMooned too and it was great!

Can I confirm something with you about your package?
You have:
2 Adults
Polynesian, Regular Season (October), Garden View
5-Day ParkHopper Passes
Dining
Discounted Package Price: $2,840

Is that right?

I'm trying to see if we should add the Dining Plan.

We have:
2 Adults + 1 Child (age: 9)
Polynesian, Regular Season (October), Garden View
5-Day ParkHopper Passes
NO Dining
Discounted Package Price: $2,911

So, the differences are we have a child's 5-Day PH and you don't but you have the dining and we don't. Our packages are different by only $71. If I take our package and back out $225 (approx. cost of a child's 5DPH) my package is $2,686. So now the difference is $154 and we only have the Dining Plan to cause the difference - unless I'm missing another piece.

Debbie

ETA: I called Disney to see how much it would cost if I added the DDP to my Disney Visa package. The new package total would be $3,520. So, the dining part is not discounted. My package without dining is $2,911 + undiscounted DDP of $609 * = $3,520

*
Adult: $37.99 x 7 nights = $266 +
Adult: $37.99 x 7 nights = $266 +
Child: $10.99 x 7 nights = $77 =
$609

Help! Hopefully this makes sense: I currently have a res. at Pop Dec. 3-9...6 day MYW dining pkg. w/ AAA at $1400. I called AAA to get my lady to check it w/ the new code, she's out until Monday, someone else called me back. She immediatly tells me the code is not available to the values...they are already cheap enough. Huh? I asked her to check on a mod. price for me, we might upgrade. She's calling back. I have little faith in her...I already argued w/ her symantics about what Pop is, she kept telling me I'm staying at an All Stars, I said I'm staying at Pop (wanting to make sure my ressie still said Pop and NOT All Stars), she finally agreed and said that they are all part of All Stars...NO, Pop is not, but I get her point, they are all Values.

At any rate, I called resservations myself just now, he said the code IS available for Pop, but since it's all booked he can't even check the price difference for me. There's got to be a way.

Now te other lady is going to call me back and tell me the mod. price and I'm goign to have to argue w/ her that it is available to values...why can't my lady be there? She's nice! Can anyone help w/ the price or anything?

Hiya,

I got a discount applied to two ressies (can't book more than 10nights in a row and we were after 12 total):

11/16 - 11/25
11/25 - 11/28

So I should think you'll be able to get it too - good luck!

I just called Disney again to inquire about the code, and was told that the only option would be is to change resorts (either ASMu or AS sports). I asked if they knew if any availability would show up in the near future and they answered that they had no idea. I really don't want to change resorts... I don't understand why the discount wouldn't apply to my existing reservation???

08-17-2006, 01:45 PM

I think I will call back in a little while - my emotions have been on a roller coaster so far today in hopes of getting this code applied. It would be a great surprise for DH to find out that I am "saving money" on this Christmas trip (DH is away for work). My new motto will be "hope for the best, expect the worst". I am hoping to save money, but, if not, I'm still going!!!

Okay, here's what I've got. Current ressie is: Oct. 7-13 ASMo preferred room for 2A +2C plus 7 day non-hoppers with dining plan added. Cost: $2130.92. Dreams Unlimited TA just emailed me that she could get same exact package deal for $1799 if we switched out of ASMo and moved to eith POP or ASsports. Don't really want to switch (kids want ASMO even with the Fantasia pool drama) but would like to get the $332 discount. Only other option she said was AKL for $556 more (than orig. $2130 price). So we could go to AKL for $2700 approx. but don't really want to spend.

My question is: should I take the $332 and go to another value (would we be happy at either with 7 and 4 yr old?) or stick to ASMO and not get the $ back? :confused3 OR should I ask TA to keep trying for next few days for something else to open up? Comments?

Thanks! :wave:

I would switch. Thats a hefty savings, too good to pass up. I have stayed at all the Values. Personally, I like Pop the most (but I love the All Stars too)but if you do switch to ASSP, you can easily use/tour everything at ASMO (the pool thing alone would have had me switching way back when). You can easily tour ASMO by hopping on any bus at Sports, that is as long as they are sharing (which they usually are), as the buses stop at Sports first before moving on to Music and then finally Movies. I would simply tell your kids you had to do this, maybe offer each of them $20 of your total savings for something they want for themselves at Disney or at home. I had this exact same thing happen two years ago. We were all set to stay at French Quarter but the then code would only work at Riverside. Problem was my daughter had her heart set on that pool slide at POFQ! I bribed her with $20, saved my money and by the time the trip came up she didn't ever even remember wanting to not stay there

I don't know. I don't know what I'm doing differently than you. I go to My Disney Vacation, I put in my ressie # and my phone #, I get all the info you see, but when I scroll down to the bottom of the page it shows my total package price, all the payments I've made and the total due, which is now a negative $614.60, which is the amount they will be crediting back to my card.

Amy&Dan- Can you tell me some things about Sports and POP that are as magical as it sounds to stay at Movies? I would really appreciate any info. The sports just don't look as exciting and POP looks too loud and busy (I'm going off pictures here and by loud I mean color wise. MAke sense? It just looks too fluorescent and bright!) Is it as clean at Sports and cute in the rooms? I'm so conflicted about all this changing... Thanks for your help. Yeah, I agree, it's a pretty hefty sum to me as well. And to be honest-- the kids really could probably care less... it's just me trying to make things 'perfect' for them. :wave2:

I orginally had 2 nights at the PR GV room and 5 nights at the GR in Sugarloaf. When I called this morning she tried to get all 7 nights for Sugarloaf, but they wouldn't let her apply the discount because I had a AAA room discount. The only thing that was available was a GV room at the Polynesian for all 7 nights, so I went ahead and booked it in hopes of upgrading later (but will be happy if I can't :teeth: )

Oct 19th for 7 nights.
Our total for seven nights 2 adults, 1 junior and 2 kids 10 base tickets with dining is $4,189
I took away our tickets (1066) and dining (952) and the room comes to $310 a night. It is $419 cheaper than AAA and $722 cheaper than rack rate :)

I just kept our AAA 2 night stay at the AKL CL.

Is the $310 without tax? I just booked with AP rate at Poly for $325 without tax per night for regular season. I am assuming Oct. 19 is regular season? So, if that is the case I would have saves a little more but I already have tickets for all but 2 of us and I am not crazy about booking a package b/c of the restrictions. anyway, now I have an excuse to go back before the year is up!!!! :dance3:

Okay here are some things I like about Pop: The bathroom has a nice shelf that runs above the sink. Its great to store your toiletries since the counter fills up fast. None of the All Stars have this shelf. The dresser at Pop is bigger with more drawer storage. The dresser is also wood, not the laminate stuff they use at the All Stars, it looks nicer and is more tasteful. The television at Pop is larger (25" vs. 20"). The buses at Pop don't share with any other resorts, however its a large resort so that about evens out. But at least once you reach Pop you don't have to travel anywhere else! I actually think Pop is not as loud as the All Stars as far as colors. The rooms seem a bit more low key in colors. Pop's icons are really cute. If you love Lady and the Tramp and Jungle Book you will be in heaven. Since those are two of my favorites I was. The food court has an indoor bar as well as the pool bar. All Stars only have the outdoor pool bar. The food court at Pop has some booths, I don't think the All Stars have anything but tables. None of this is critical but it can add up. Pop is much newer and fresher. Again, the All Stars are great and super clean but they are older. Pop does not typically get as many large, school groups. I don't know if there are big events scheduled for your dates but for instance when we stayed at Pop in April there were no groups. We stayed at ASMU later in that same trip (we ended up doing three resorts total, long story) there were several large groups of graduates (this was into May). The pool that night was a nightmare. They weren't bad kids, just too many of them. I had never experienced the dreaded large groups at an All Star resort, now I know what people mean about that.

As far as Sports, it has some really cute fun, sports theming with lots of Disney touches thrown in. My son loves sports so he was in hog heaven. My daughter preferred Music. Sports is the first resort picked up and dropped off on the All Star bus route, so thats nice. The All Stars are not as spread out as Pop, however even in the further out sections of Pop, you won't have a longer than five minute walk to anything. At any of the All Stars you have the perk of using any of the three food courts or pools. I have never hopped around but its nice to know you can do that to experience the different pools and theming. Of the four values I have stayed at, Pop was the cleanest, probably because its newer. But our room at Sports was super clean. Music was fine too but it seemed older and not as bright. I have equally good experiences with the staff and housekeeping at all of the values.

I hope this helps you! WDW trips have so many decisions to factor in. But honestly, to save $300 I would change in a minute and I'd do it quick before they run out of those code rates! Good luck!

I had to tell my TA about the deal. She only knew about the Visa one. To her credit, she jumped right on it. To get a discount, I'd have to switch from BCV to BWV. Rats! I don't want to switch. I've paid already so I guess I'll just suck it up. :furious:

Is the $310 without tax? I just booked with AP rate at Poly for $325 without tax per night for regular season. I am assuming Oct. 19 is regular season? So, if that is the case I would have saves a little more but I already have tickets for all but 2 of us and I am not crazy about booking a package b/c of the restrictions. anyway, now I have an excuse to go back before the year is up!!!! :dance3:


Yes that includes tax. :teeth: and it is during regular season.

I had one room paid in full at Pop for seven night, four adults, for $1816. With the code, now I have two rooms (two adults per room) for $1674. I have a credit of $142. That was more than I expected with the code and I'm very happy.

I got POR this morning for 11/3-11/11, but I was playing online 10 minutes ago to see what else was out there and the only mod it would give me was CBR, no POR. You could use the code it looks like, but you'd have to move. :confused3

Called this afternoon (with about a 10 min wait)....

12/5-12/8 (the no-no time frame, but got it!)...at CBR
2AD, 1C 7 day park hoppers (we are at the Dolphin the other 4 nights)

Originally, $1309.24
with ZBG (no dining) now $1054.34

Just an FYI....if you are only doing a FEW nights, (depends on many things, of course..including WHERE you are staying)....if you can't get the package, look into AAA room rates and using the discount link from mousesavers for tickets.....for this same period, that would cost us $1077.30 (not much more than the new package).

GOOD LUCK ALL!

I think if you click on the link that says Make Payment, it will show you your balance. (You don't have to actually go through with making the payment). That's what I remember anyway- not at home to look up my own ressie.
Hmm... under the "invoice" it only says terms and conditions... nothing about make a payment. is it because it's room only?

Amy&Dan- Thanks for all that info. POP is looking more attractive all the time due to the discount and your positive info. I have to wait til tomorrow now to see what the TA says as she did not reply to my last email this afternoon- probably strapped for time due to all this switching! Thanks again for helping a newbie get to WDW sane!

I just got off the phone with Disney Reservations. I had booked 2 rooms for 4 adults with MYW park hopper and dining for $3928.52 through AAA at All Star Sports from 12/8 until 12/17. Cost with the new code for the same reservation is $3400. Needless to say, I'm cancelling my AAA reservation. I did have to change to Pop Century, but I could care less, considering I'm saving $500.

I wanted to book Woods View at WL 6 nights 10-9/15, incl. MYW plus Dining.

CM on the phone said there were only courtyard view available.

I am able to book a pkg incl Woods View Room for my dates online.

Will I be able to apply the code to these reservations if I book then call back and speak to a CM?

Thanks!

Probably not. They set aside a certain number of rooms in each category that the code will apply to. Just because the rooms are available does not mean that the code will work for them. That doesn't mean that a room with a code available might not open up that is woods view, but of course there would be no guarantees.

I just checked with the code applied and unfortunatelt the reservations system is hiccuping again. I'll keep trying, I'm bored at work. :) How many people and ages?

Edit: All I got was Courtyard as well. :(

For those of you who are being told that there is no availability for the resorts you want, KEEP TRYING.

I called this evening for a standard room at Pop and was told with the code, all that was available was preferred. I said how about Movies, and again, only preferred available. She said standards were available at Music and Sports, but I really wanted Pop, and I really wanted the standard room, not the preferred, so I was very disappointed, and wasn't really sure WHAT to do as I hadn't anticipated any problems with this as my trip is in early December and I know that's a low crowd time of year. I told her I'd need to think about what to do and call back.

Someone mentioned the website code -- I went online after getting off the phone to compare some prices, and found the ZAW code listed on the main page at Disney's site. I tried to book with this code and it said the code was no longer valid (although it had said good through 9/30 and I was just on Disney's website yesterday and this code wasn't there then!)

So I thought perhaps with ZAW there would be a standard room at Pop available, and maybe it was an error on the website that said it was no longer valid, so I called Disney back and asked about the ZAW code, and the guy I got looked it up and said it was an internet only code so I couldn't book with that on the phone, but that it's the exact same discount as the ZBG code. I told him how I'd tried to book with it and the website said it was no longer valid, and he did say he'd heard they were having some problems with the website today so that could be what's going on.

So then without telling him what the girl ten minutes earlier had told me, I said I wanted standard room at Pop and gave him my dates, and he came up with it right away, no problem.

So I got my standard at Pop after all, and with the code, when I subtracted the cost of our tickets, it came to only 62.50 a night AFTER taxes!

So if you're being told no availability for what you want on the code, I don't know if they're lying to try to get you to book something more expensive, or if they're just mistaken, or if people are changing their ressies around so much that in that ten minute time period, a standard really did just become available, but you might want to keep trying, as it paid off for me!

I already have a preferred room booked at ASMo. Should I keep calling to see if the code would apply to my existing reservation??? Like I stated earlier, my only option was to change resorts - which I don't want to do.

This package is now available for booking online. They are calling it "Dreamy Room Rates." http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/wdw/special/offerDetail?id=07_Q1PackageOfferPage

The only weird thing is that, instead of taking $200.00 as a deposit, it only takes $189 or so. :confused3

I like to book online and be able to check out all of my options. We booked two rooms at ASMU, December 16-19, preferred location, with the dining plan and one base ticket each - $571 per room. It's a $101 per room saving off of the "rack" rate. We would have booked the AP rate, but really wanted the DDP.

Got a little freaked out this morning.

I went online to check my ressie, as I do every morning. I noticed that before I applied the ZBH code to my ressie the online info said...

Package
Magic Your Way with Dining

But after I had the code applied yesterday, it doesn't say anything about the Package I purchased. So...I quickly called Disney fearing that the CM had accidentally applied the ZBG (no dining) discount code instead of the ZBH code. The CM this morning assured me that my package is still Magic Your Way with Dining and that the correct (ZBH) code was applied. It's just that now that I am on the Discount package, it doesn't show up on the website the same as before.

Just thought I'd pass this info along in case anybody else noticed the same thing and freaked out like me. Just to be on the safe side, I will be calling again in about a week to make sure I have the dining package. Also, I should be getting an updated reservation confirmation in the mail, as I have twice before the previous two times I altered my ressie. :)

Woo! Hoo! Took advantage of the latest code and was able to get the dining package and it only added $75 to the whole 5 day trip for both of us! :thumbsup2 ('course I don't know what we'll do with all that food :banana: )

I just tried and she told me no rooms at any Values were available for ZBG 12/2-12-8. She also tried to tell me the code was for 5 nights and we would have to break up our 6 night stay. But still there was nothing.

Just got off the phone w/Disney Reservations. We're staying at Pop from 12/19 - 12/27. The CM told me there were no standards available, but could book me preferred at a $200 savings, so I took it. She never mentioned the code being for only 5 nights... :confused3

I have mine up right now and in the invoice section it shows my original amount, my payments, and amount owed. And a Make Payment link. We have room, tickets, and air, but I would think they would still show you your balance no matter what you have!

I think I'll try again later...it seems to be the luck of the draw whether you get it the first try or not! I don't know if my dates are a problem, mousesavers mentioned possible blackout for 12/2-12/8.

Before I switched to the package I had a room-only reservation that I could view online but there was no "make a payment" option.

Now that I have a package I have the "make a payment" option available. Maybe it is just for packages. :confused3

and boy did I need to be persistent and patient!

I was booking at midnight PST, 3am east for all my east coast friends. The website/booking engine was being very temperamental.

I booked via the link on the specials page on the website:

http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/wdw/tickets/packageListing?id=SpecialOfferListingPage

A couple times I got “engine is down”, a couple other times it was telling me everything is sold out. I was fairly sure that the resort was not totally sold out Oct 1-6 so when I got these errors I closed the page totally and started again. Refreshing does not work.
:banana: This is what we have! :banana:

Oct 1-6, 5 nights
AKL
Savannah view
2 adults with 1 day tickets and dining
Declined travel insurance
$1917.10

We are starting to feel fall already here in Seattle, come on warm weather!

I've never looked into a package before, as I ahve an AP. I want to see if I can save $$ by doing the MYW discounted package, buying only 1 One Day Base Ticket. But we'll ahve a party of 2 adults and one child - can I do this only buying 1 ticket?
