Does anyone know of any web sites other than Mousesavers and the Discount page here on DIS that list discount codes? My darling husband & I check these pages almost every day. As soon as we see a new code, we call a CM and ask if they have any availability & if it'll save us any money on what we already have. FYI, we're staying in 2 adjoining rooms (1 for us, 1 for kids) at the Contemporary in June. Most of the time we find out that there's no availability at CR. The only other response we've gotten twice is that it won't save us money. We're evidently too slow. Is there some other page that I don't know anything about???

You are checking the 2 best pages that I know of! One suggestion, call CRO everyday. If people cancel you may be able to snag a discount that way. Of course calling can get expensive, but it may help you find a deal. Good Luck.

Maybe someone else has a suggestion for you as well......

I have been checking on the Contemporary too!!
I think what the problem is......since the Shades of Green is closing they have transferred all of those guests to the Cont. :(
Therefore it is filled up.
The one day last week I called and was told they did have a Tower room available, but we are looking for the wings.

There is a chance they just have a certain amount of the rooms "held" for the SOG guests till they let them all know. So I would suggest to keep calling as the time gets closer.

Good Luck:D :D

The rooms that we have booked are tower rooms (with a request for MK view). This is the first trip for the rest of my family, and our oldest child will be going to college in the fall. This is supposed to be "the ultimate Disney vacation." I didn't know the SOG guests were being rerouted to CR. Thanks for the info.

I started making my ressies last August using my Disney Club card. We are resort hopping this trip. 3-days@CB,3-days@WL and5-days@CR. I would check all the websites faithfully everyday and also call Disney every 2days or so to see if any other discounts came out. Lo and behold the AP rates came out. I called the morning they were released and after being on hold for at least 30 min.(long distance) I finally got through. I was able to get the ap rates for the CB and WL. Our favorite resort is the CR and that being the most expensive one, I was very disappointed that they told me nothing was available. I kept the DC discount rate for that, but I called everyday, sometimes 2-3 a day. I finally got the ap rate that I wanted for the Contemporary. We need 2 rooms and the tower is our choice. Please, keep calling and calling and calling. I really don't it is fair that we have a hard time getting what we want because another resort is closing. If disney is holding rooms for other guests in anticipation of booking, well to me that is wrong. It should be who-ever calls first gets the room. I'm just venting now, because it took alot of energy and stress to get what I wanted. So please keep calling, something will come your way. It did for me, and if it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck.

Also, look into getting an AP.

Only one person in your party needs the AP for the discount, and you don't need it when you make the reservation, only when you check in. If you are able to get this discount, the savings would probably greatly outweigh the cost of the AP.
