Do you mind if I ask what your dates were? Did you have to switch resorts?

I'm waiting for a quote from our TA.

I'm waiting for a quote from our TA.

I was trying for June 28-5th. Wasn't working at either the Boardwalk deluxe concierge room or the Fort Wilderness cabins. All that was showing up was SSR 2 bedroom- and it was$$$ even with the discount.

So we moved it up a day to the 27. and were able to get whatever rooms we wanted. (I have a hold on the BW one but may switch- I can't decide. and nobody is home for a second opinion.) The cabins weren't as cheap as I thought so we would be saving about $1200 staying there. vs. the concierge level at the Boardwalk which was SWEET last year. To me I'm thinking that's not enough of a discount to make it worth it to switch. (they don't even have a washer/dryer and the beds are DOUBLES- yikes that's tight!)

We are a family of 6 so our choices are limited. The family suites at AS were not showing up at all.

Thanks for the info.

It's strange that the Music suites weren't in the system. I wonder if they are all booked for your stay?


I'll be checking our email all day to see when the TA gets our quote!

Had an existing reservation and called this morning as soon as I got to work. I wanted to move the dates back one day once I determined I could with the special. The special still wasn't online but CM Dorothy was most helpful and knew exactly what I was talking about.

Here's my deal

Old Price $4051.27
Old Dates 8/8/09 to 8/15/09

New Price $2672.47
New Dates 8/9/09 to 8/16/09

This is for club level at Wilderness Lodge.

I'm happy! :cool1:

Just got Beach Club July 19-26
2 adults 2 kids
Standard view 7nights w/hoppers
$2657.94 AAA

Not bad, but I was under the impression that by booking directly through AAA
that I would still get the room portion discounted like when a MYW package is booked....they said for the package, no, that would be double dipping.

They are correct - Disney will not allow the stacking of discounts it is one or the other

Standard room POP
(4) 1 day base tickets $973.88

Now I'm already thinking for a few hundred more we could upgrade to a mod and it is my birthday trip. Still we are going in March at CSR so I need to leave it alone. I need to stop myself.:rolleyes1

Well, after days of trying to snag a $1 room and DH saying we weren't going to Disney this year unless I won that room, I just booked Pop!!! I called and told him about the 4/3 deal being extended and he caved!! We have only taken the boys one time, last summer. And they had SOO much fun! I knew he'd give in if I could get this offer. Plus, with these savings he can still go to the beach for a couple days and go fishing!!

Here's what we got:

7 nights at Pop
7 day tix w/park hopper
Basic (CS) dining
travel insurance
Total 2275.44

2 adults-2 children

Figure all we really need to add in is gas to get there. A meal or two on the way there and way back and souvenir money! We did the regular dining plan last year and I loved it but kind of want to be a little more free this time and not worry about running to ADR's.

I'm so happy!!!!

We made a HUGE modification to our ressie!!!:woohoo: :yay: :banana: :scared1:

We were staying at the POP for 7 nights July 18th to July 25th and the 7 day MYW Tickets was 1469.40.

What do you do when life hands you a discount :confused3 You spend more money of course.:lmao:

We upgraded for a Legend...wait for it... dairy trip.:woohoo: :yay:

We now have a ressie at the GRAND FLORIDIAN RESORT AND SPA!!!:scared1: :banana: :cool1:

The difference is $826.66 over what we would have spent at POP.

I am so excited I can't stand it!!!:scared1: :banana: :cool1: :dance3:

BTW- Has anyone inquired about adding the no expiration to this package? On mousesavers it says:

"The package includes standard Magic Your Way Base Tickets. You can upgrade them with the Park Hopper and/or Water Parks & More option(s), but you'll pay the regular price for those upgrades. However, MouseSavers.com reader Lorraine has discovered that when booking this package, if you add the No Expiration option to a 7 day ticket, you are only charged the No Expiration cost for a 4 day ticket. What this means is that you can add the No Expiration option to your 7-day ticket at less than half the normal price ($53.25 per ticket instead of $117.15). If you wish, you can also add the Water Parks option at regular price ($53.25 per ticket) and then you'll have 7 water park admissions that don't expire!"

Has anyone actually done this?

So many emotion so little time:
:woohoo: :yay: :scared1: :cool1: :cheer2: :dance3: :cloud9: :upsidedow

I just got a quote from my TA, but she accidentally quoted the wrong resort so we have to wait and hear back from her again.

Our dates are 8/10-8/20. It sounds like we can book the 4/3 just until the 8/15, but I was hoping that we could do 4/3 for the first 7 nights and a AAA room rate for the last 3 nights. :confused:

I made 2 seperate ressies,1 using the 4/3 8th-16th and the other for free dining 16th-20th.The guy thought it was a great idea,said I saved lots of money.He noted on the ressies it was a continuous ressie,so we might be able to stay in the same room then.

You can't stack discounts and the free dining pin doesn't start until 8/16. There would have to be two reservations.

Somehow for me, free dining would still be cheaper. I thought the 4/3 deal was better? I have a family of 6, but one is an infant. 2 adults, 11 yr old, 8 and 6 yr. old. Maybe it's because the 11 yr. old is considered an adult.

We are a family of 6 and there is NO better deal for us than free dining. We always get two connecting rooms at a value for either 8 or 9 nights. We were lucky enough to get the free dining for our trip last December and it saved us about $1,600.00. The 4/3 deal would only save us a little over $700.00. I'm definitley holding out until April to see what is going to be released.

If you only have one or two kids and are staying at a Deluxe resort, the 4/3 may be a better deal, but if you are a larger family and stay value or moderate, then free dining most likely going to be a better deal.

Yay!! We're in on the special too! Seven glorious nights at the Polynesian!! :goodvibes I got up bright and early and made the call at 7:00 a.m. (6:00 a.m. my time! Only for Disney would I get up this early just to make a phone call lol) But when I asked the CM if the 4/3 had been extended to my dates in July, she said, not at this time, but you could go ahead and book and if a discount becomes available, yadda yadda yadda... Disappointed, I was getting ready to hang up when she suddenly says to hang on, it is coming in to her system now and yes, it is available! Needless to say, I did the happy dance and booked!! :woohoo:

Thank you for posting this!

I just booked our July 2-11 trip using the 4/3 deal! Now we get to stay at Wilderness Lodge! So psyched!

It is still pricey, 2 adults, 2 kids for 9 days plus park hopper plus dining for $4279. But at least we saved something!

:dance3: :woohoo: :cool1: :yay:

I was so worried all weekend that the 4th would be blocked out. But it wasn't!

First thing this AM, went from old reservations:

Pop Century
3 Rooms, 11 Guests
7/4-7/10
7 Day Park Hoppers
Dining Plan and Magical Fireworks Voyage
$7615

To new reservations:

Coronado Springs Resort
3 Rooms, 11 Guests
7/4-7/11
8 Day Park Hoppers
Dining Plan and Magical Fireworks Voyage
$7955

Yes, I realize that that is actually $340 more expensive! It's the extra dining plan day that puts it over. But $340 buys me an upgrade for three rooms, an extra day and night, and another TS credit to plan!!

So I repeat...
:dance3: :woohoo: :cool1: :yay:
