I am just wondering if I am the only one who did NOT get a PIN? WE are booked for Bounceback, but would change the dates for a PIN as that time is not great for us.

Let me know so I do not feel so sad :sad1:

Amy - I did not get one either.

And I'm booked for bounceback too and was hoping to compare pricing.

Maybe that's why we didn't get one???

I got nada and dont know too much about pins. Now sure how to get them. I know they've got my email because i've ordered the disney planning dvd multiple times and entered some contests.

I didn't get one either. I am booked for a trip with dh in February that is outside the dates listed in the e-mail but I wanted to book another trip later in the year. I promised my dd that when she graduated from university this spring I would take her to WDW. There was a week on the e-mail for the first week of June. I called on Thursday the 23rd to see if I had a pin attached to my name but was told that I didn't and that more e-mails were going to be sent out. I had high hopes when I saw that people were still getting the e-mails on the 28th but I haven't received one yet.

Me Too!! That is what prompted me to ask. It seems there were 2 waves and I was not a part of either of them :confused3

Oh well. Bounceback is awesome, it is just that DD will have just started Kindergarden. I have no problem taking her out of school, but it is her first few weeks and that concerns me. (Not starting a debate :) )

Fingers crossed there are more coming - we would like November for DD's 5th Birthday!!

No PIN for me. I'm trying to be stoic about it because we got one last fall. Can't expect to get that lucky every year!

but in all honesty, I just did one trip so far, so my hopes are not that high. It will be nice if we get one though so we can go back next year. Failing which, I wil just take advantage of any general code, or use airmiles/aeroplan or anything else. But I'm still hoping.

I didn't get a pin either. A friend of mine got one and she's only been to WDW once, I've been 14+ times!! I'm so jealous.

BTW, congrats!

Not exactly, I am a sub agent for an agency so everything gets booked under my bosses name so I can't really get the TA deals because the TA name has to appear on the resv. But I do get to take the amount of my commission paid by Disney off the cost of my trip. That's what so great about it for people. Clients don't pay us Disney does. We do it all for "free" no extra cost to the client.

None...but I'm already booked on a bounceback for next month and we're AP holders who go every couple of months. It wouldn't make sense for their marketing department to send one to us anyway.

No Pin here either :sad1: .

Here's hoping that a Canadian or general public discount code will soon be released instead!

nothin' for me......I was just there in July and they know that I'm not coming back for at least 3 years. If they had sent me a PIN I would have changed my mind.

We never get a pin but did get a 40% bounceback offer in April when we were there.

Camilo

That's really weird.
I received a PIN even though I never stayed onsite.
I'm wondering what their criteria is....

Regarding bouneback, would anyone mind sharing any recent bounceback offers?

I think we are going to stay on site for a couple nights in January 2009 and just wondering if there might be a bounceback offer available for December 2009 for a value or a moderate resort?

Any info. would be really appreciated.

Thank you

None here, either. I must be on every Disney list there is, got the planning DVD, etc. But we only took our first trip this last March/April, so maybe you need a longer travel history with them?

One of life's mysteries.:)

Nothing for me this time. I did get one last winter so I'm on a list somewhere!

we had booked bounce back & then got the pin code in an email

however - the emails are still coming is what the CM told me, so keep looking & check your spam folder to make sure an offer doesn't sneak by:goodvibes

I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't get one. 6 trips in 6 years including a 7 night DCL cruise, always stay on site, usually at a moderate for two weeks and still NO pin. I wish I knew the sectet.

11-01-2008, 07:26 PM
No pin ever for me. We have been 8 times since 1991. My friend received one and she has only been twice and not a lover like I am of disneyworld.
Wish I knew how to get on the list.

Nope-nothing. We haven't booked yet and the dates covered aren't the pnes we are looking at (August) ours though so I guess thats ok.

We didn't either. I didn't really think we would get one. We are booked for bounceback.. not sure we will use it but we wanted to put the deposit down in case we did. We also got a 40% off code before our trip last year. So I'm not too bothered.

Perhaps they think I don't need one????:confused3

11-02-2008, 06:22 PM
I didn't get one although DH did and he never does the booking. I think he regisered for one thing at some point and he gets the PIN code. We booked the bounceback offer which isn't covered. Funny thing is that neither of our birthdays are covered either so no free admittance for us next year.

Oh well we are going Dec 13th so I can't complain too much.

No pin here either..... ever...... and I've gone many times over the years.
I've often wondered though, If I've deleted any without knowing. :rolleyes1
Are the PIN codes obvious or are they little one line sentances in the middle of emails?

Oh well, at least I know it's not just me....:rotfl:

The difference between a regular Disney email and a code seems to be that the codes are always in an email from "Disney Destinations".

Maybe this is answered amongst the many posts but what is the PIN and how do you qualify for one???

SydneyFalco
11-03-2008, 09:39 AM
Pins and codes are simply an invention of the biased media! Also, possibly, the work of the Stone Masons... or elves.

I'll believe in 'em when I see one.

maryliz
11-03-2008, 10:46 AM
No PIN for me either :sad2: and if I got one, it would be trip number 30 for me, so I'm kinda feeling like I "deserve" one. ;) :lmao:

One of life's mysteries.:)

We took our first trip this past April...then on Oct 27 I received the 40% off PIN from Disney Destinations for certain 2009 dates. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason at all to who gets the PIN's.:confused3

Wouldn't a Cdn at Par -with free dining be nice right about now

When we went in September we paid for the trip and bought our US$ at par. It was a treat!!

We have already postponed a Girls Trip to Vegas because of the $ - it is just not the same when it is 1.21 or whatever it is today.

Still no pin for me (the OP here). I have DH scouring his email address too. I think if there is another wave of pins I may call again. I am hoping they just forgot to send it to me and there really is a PIN on my name :wizard:

:rotfl2: I did not receive a 40% discount offer and we've been pouring money into Disney and Disney Cruiseline since '98 annually.

Here's the kicker for us. Next summer, we convinced our friends, who have NEVER been to Disney to try a Land and Sea package and they are coming with us. We are thrilled because they are the nicest people and our daughters have been friends since kindergarten.

Our friends, however, DID get the pin offer and it was so good they booked their land stay with it instead of with the cruiseline.

The good thing is that since we're travelling together they can book the offer for us as well.

So now, everyone is happy again, with some money saved.:flower3:

Technically, I've never received one either. My DF got one for the first time in October. I'm assuming it's because the reservations are always in my name and he's never booked a Disney trip before :laughing:

mom2faith
11-06-2008, 01:44 PM
I got my first email from Disney Destinations today. As others have said it was in my junk mail.

I opened it, as my heart pounded with excitement, hoping for the PIN with the same dates as previously posted.

My hands were sweating...

I could feel my throat swell up...

It was slow to open...

And, when it did it was...

An Advertisement for Adventures By Disney!! I almost cried!! How could they tease me like this!!!

Oh, well, at least I know I am on their mailing list.

My TA tried for us but she wasn't able to get anything for us. I suspect it's because we're staying over MLK weekend.

Nice! She said she would keep checking for us in case more rooms were added to the inventory. For now, I'm happy that we have the AP discount. It's better than the AAA discount.

was the bounceback deal for??

I got Free Dining Bounceback when I was there for Free Dining in September. The offer was for Sept 2009. We booked it, but are not 100% happy with the time of year as DD will just start Kindegarden a few weeks before we leave. We would rather November.

I also booked the 4 + 3 deal last week, thinking WOW!! What a great deal!! But when we crunched the numbers, the Free Dining was much better, so we are sticking with that for now.

I can't complain, free dining is AWESOME!! Just the 3rd week of September is not an ideal time for us to go this time.

Would October be better for you?

You could change your Bounceback to October as long as you check in by the 2nd.

I haven't either but got a great deal with the fall savings code that was out a while ago. Got Dec 13-23 at Pop,with dining for 1900 plus taxes. Geez, in the summer for 9 days for the same package I paid 1999.00. So I am a happy girl, get to go to DIsney at christmas, for a little less than it cost in the summer. :banana: :dance3:
