Friends and Family Discount

Can anyone tell me more about the Friends and Family Discount? My aunt is a CM and has offered this discount to us, but she hasn't been very good about detailing the discount for us.

Thank you!

The discount is normally about 40% off. During very slow times it can be as much as 50%. It's a room-only reservation and sometimes the Dining Plan is offered at a small discount. Your Aunt can only book Friends and Family reservations up to 4 times per year.

Thanks, Plutolovr! I really appreciate the response. Do you happen to know if the discount is good on club level rooms?

It's good on whatever rooms they decide to put into inventory. I know I was able to book a Friends and Family for Poly Club Level for last September.

How far in advance can you book a room with this discount? Would they already have rooms for 2014? My guess is no since the rates have not even come out, but would these discounts be available as soon as the rates for 2014 come out?

If we needed two rooms in one res would that count as one or two reservations? We have a CM friend but I would feel bad if they had to use two of their reservations on us

Depends. If you need two rooms and have 3 or more adults you'll be on 2 separate reservations and then linked together with a Travel With number. With two adults and kids both the rooms are on the same reservation. The CM discounts are by room and not reservation so either way it will use two of their rooms.

Little update to help answer those questions...We've been checking the Hub for a Friends & Family Moderate POR stay Aug 3-9.

Running the online Hub method shows 40% off a Royal Guest Room -Pool View but I could not add the DP to it while online.

I called this morning to verbally do it and was given 50% off and the DDP was $46.99 per adult which is nearly $10 off the daily rack rate.

Caviot to that is the Cast Member must call to make the reservation - so my Daughter called right back and I have the room at $780 plus $1128 for 6 nights on the Plus Dining Plan or $1908 total rounded to nearest $$$

Have the Cast member make the call if you are ready to book! (It saved me another 10%)

Also always ask if you have any PIN Codes attached to your name. I've been getting advertisment flyers with specials for years and never used them because I'm Military and already was getting 30-40% off with the Military Salute Program. I had one that just expired on Jun 14th and it gave 40% off a Moderate (the MSP was only 35%).
