View Full Version : easter black outs and AP's

03-08-2010, 08:07 AM
I called Disney last night after seeing the announcement here. Unfortunately I had no luck. They did not lift the blackout on AP rates. We have an AP room rate with dining starting on the 11th of April. He did quote us the general room only discount for the 9th and 10th but because it is only 2 nights, it's only 35% off. Does anyone know if it possible to use general room rate discount and add on dining or is that only for AP's?

I also got the AP discount for 4/2 - 4/10 by calling and politely insisting the CM try to get it to go through (after hearing the AP discount was, in fact, working for that week). The CM was very surprised it worked because they were seeing blackout dates listed. But if you can get someone who's willing to try it, there are AP discounts for Easter week.

Thanks for the suggestion to keep trying! What a difference a CM can make!!! I called last night and had the nicest CM who tried until she was able to get the discount to work. We are now checking in to AKL on Friday and are psyched!!! Warm weather can't get here soon enough!!!

I hope that anyone else having troubles with discounts keeps trying until the get a helpful CM!!!

Thanks Again!!:yay:

I booked through the AP website for Easter night and got the discount. We're getting off the Wonder that morning and are just staying that one night before driving back home. Trying to stretch the magic a little longer!;)

On Moday (March 8th), I was able to get the passholder discount added to our stay at the Wilderness Lodge (March 27-April 2). It saved us $1,021.
