I just wanted to say thank you! I would have never have known about calling to see if I have a code next to my name if I wouldn't have found this site. :flower: You all have been so helpful in making our Disney trip a wonderful one! I reserved the pop century resort for May 28 for 6 nights at a rate of $65.79 (including tax) a night for a total of about $395.00! :cool1: THANK YOU ALL!!!!

I was just wondering if I should up grade? I could get a moderate resort for the same time period for $88.09 a night including tax. Is it worth it. It will be my husband and I and 8yr old daughter. Any advice would be appreciated! :flower:

For $20 more a night I would take POFQ any day of the week. Great resort.

Get thee to a telephone and call to upgrade NOW, lady! :banana:

It isn't every day you can get such a good price for a moderate - go for it!

Here is my thought on that....

We have the same choice. Since refridgeators are $10 a night in values and free in mods and deluxes for us it was really only $10 more a night, and we love PORS. (we used to stay there back when it was Dixie Landings.) This will be our 1st time not at a DVC resort in a few years.)

One thing I like about the mods is they are fun and romantic for both adults and kids, unlike vaules that are fun for kids, but not romantic. :banana:

thanks guys for all of your help! :flower: Just one more quesiton...the code is also good for the wilderness lodge for $152.00 a night including tax. Which one would you take? The moderate for $88 or the deluxe for $152?

ciera321
03-07-2005, 09:10 PM
I would go with a moderate. While we loved WL, I don't think I'd choose it over POR or CSR for $64 more per night, but then we love the mods and don't really spend that much time in our room.... :flower:

javaj
03-07-2005, 09:10 PM
I'd choose WL -- I really like the deluxe hotels though. Whether it is worth the price difference is a personal choice....

Another thing to consider if you haven't bought park passes yet is adding the package and MYW dining option. Others have had problems with that, but we were able to add that to our discount email pin code.

Okay, I'm super new here, so please forgive my ignorance, but what are these wonderful codes I've been reading about, and how do you get one "next to your name?"

We are taking our 3 kids for the first time in the last weekend in August.
Here's us -- :grouphug: (well, on a good day anyway!!! ;) )

We are so excited, but my dreams are a bit bigger than my wallet!!

I've learned so much from you all just by lurking the last week or so, now I thought I'd join in and be part of the party!!

Thanks in advance for any help you can suggest!

Disney sends out pins randomly via snail mail and email. These pins are only good for the person whose name it is attached to and they are not general public discounts. Go to disney and sign up for their newsletter the Insider. When you sign up you can check a box that says that you want to receive special offers. I had heard of people who didn't get anything via snail mail or email but had one listed next to their name in Disney's database. I called and asked if I had one. I got very lucky and it turned out I did. The offer I received included taxes and was a value for $65.79/night, deluxe for $88.09/night and deluxe for $152.00. It never hurts to call and if you get someone who is rude hang up and call back. Good luck! I hope you get one! :flower:

DMRick --The $65.79 with my pin discount at POP was for a standard room.

I called last week and the CM did not find a code attached to my name. My DH called today and I got a room for $79 + tax at POR. I wanted POP, but DH was told this was all that was available. I still have no pin nukmber and I never received a post card or email. I hope it doesn't revert to rack when I get there.

I am finally happy. This was as good as my AP rate for POP.

Just remember you get a fridge and an awesome resort :sunny:
You could try to keep calling for cancellations if you really want POP, but I'd stick with POR :earsgirl:

Thanks weluvpluto. I've never stayed at amoderate before, but I think it's worth the extra $20 per night. I hope I like it. Now I lave to go to the resort board and read up on a hotel at which I never thought to stay.

Thanks. I jsut wondered, because they offered us POP at $49 and POR at $79, so I thought maybe this was for a 60's building room.

What is the site for the Disney Insider? I think I get that email already and have never gotten a code. Was the code in the insider or a separate email?

Nolcrest
03-18-2005, 08:20 PM
Now don't go crazy because of a code and upgrade to WL. Although WL is great the moderates are really really nice too. I'm actually more comfortable at POR than WL. Enjoy the savings and if you really want to try a mod go for it but I wouldn't stetch it to the WL. Have a grat time! :)

I reserved the Poly a couple of weeks ago for $216 a night I already had ressies at rack rate and was anxiously awaiting general codes but after finding this site and reading several threads about people calling I decided I would give it a try. The CM I spoke to very quickly said "well yes you do have a code attached to your name, we sent you a postcard recently" well needless to say I never received he postcard but that doesn't matter if they sent it then it's in their system and I saved a heck of a lot of money. :cool1:

For the OP, I would choose the PO-R over WL. We've stayed at both and actually prefer PO-R. It has a better pool area and a nicer food court. I also like the grounds at PO-R better.

Enjoy.

Anyone with a code traveling after July 5?

r5moores
03-24-2005, 08:56 PM
No my code ended for July 4th. So what I did was book July3-17th. Because my ressie started before july 4th all my nights after july 4th continued with the 88.09 rate. Great deal. So I have two nights on the manditory date for code and 13 after the code ends with the code price because its booked for during the code time. Try it that way unless you dont want to go with anytime during the 4th.

03-24-2005, 09:06 PM
We are not going until July 12 AND I have not gotten a code that I know of. I just figure I will wait to call CRO until I know people are getting a code for dates beyond July 4.

You were able to book all the nights at that rate? I thought there was a limit of 10 nights...I may have to call back and add our last 4 nights :blush:

I just found out that there is a pin attached to my name too! I'm soo excited. We got POR for 79.00. We did have to move our trip up by 2 days to get in before July4th, but I don't care. It's a great rate! :)

Thanks to this board I just called and also had a code/discount attached to my name!!! It was for a room only discount. Unfortunately most rooms/resorts were already booked for my dates (June 17-26, 2005). I was given $166 night for AK (savannah view) or $59 night for All Star Music. Any comments on AK? I have a 9 yr old daughter and 7 yr old son.

I've never stayed at AKL, but I would post your question on the resort board, you'll get more responses there :)

I tried to book online for April at the CBR and it wouldn't come up, they gave me other resorts to choose from. I figured I would call to see if it's available and also to check to see if I had a pin by my name. Well surprisingly I did :cool1: and OF COURSE the CBR is not available :sad2: . Just my luck, I was only considering it because I got such a great rate with Southwest out of Chicago. We like to go the end of August anyway and it will give me more time to save. I'll just keep my eyes on this board for those Aug/Sept deals!

I just called CRO at (407) WDISNEY and told them that I would like to know if I have a pin number listed under my name. After getting all my information the CR said " it looks like you do".

Some one help me I have read lots of threads and the more I read the more I get confused. What does it mean by having a code next to your name and do you just call WDW and ask if you have a code when you book a room? I am taking my daughter ( 4 yrs today) to disney for 4 days in May and could use a break. Any advice would be so so so helpful.

Thank You

To have a pin # by your name means that Disney sent you an email or postcard offering a special resort rate.

I've been reading my Disney Insider, but haven't seen any?

Everytime I call Disney, they tell me that I can't see my reservation b/c AAA booked it. What should I do? I hate to bother my AAA rep. again - I've had to change my reservation 3 times now!

Any help???

I know this is an odd request but will someone call for me to ask if I have a pin next to my name? I'm at work all day and can't... and really want to check to see. I already have a reservation through a travel agent but if I have a code, I can get the code and then apply it to my existing reservation.

PM me for details if someone would be so kind to check for me

I'm new to these boards, but wanted to add my thanks for the tips on getting Pins/Codes. Thanks to all who wrote encouraging words to get me to call since my little PIN miracle was right there waiting! We already had a Pop Century reservation for 5 nights starting end of May, so I inquired as nicely as I could if the CM would mind checking for a discount I may have missed in a promotional email. The CM was excellent and re-did my prior online booking to a "call-in" room-only ressie and pulled up the $59 per night rate ($65.79 with tax). Thanks again to all for the advice, and best wishes for pixie-dust for everyone else! :cloud9:
