Can you add a discount after booking?

So I am planning a trip for the last week of January 2014. Since this is usually a discounted time to go I want to wait to book until I can get a discount.

However, I really want to have dinner at Be Our Guest and from what I am seeing you have to have the 180 +10 to get a reservation there. Unless somebody knows something different?

so now I'm thinking I need to book at least my room so I can have the +10 to make the dining reservation but if a discount comes out later will I still be able to get it?

Yes, you can have a discount applied to an existing reservation as long as the resort/room type you want/have booked is available under that discount. Sometimes you have to be flexible with your resort/room type as having a reservation already in place does not guarantee a discount can be applied.

Yes, I did it last year, but they offered a package discount (play, stay, dine discount) instead of free dining. We have been going in Jan/Feb. For 2011 and 2012, they had free dining offers. Last year they offered the play, stay and dine which was not as good, but close enough. I had booked in end of July/early August and made my ADRs at 180+10. The discounts for Jan/Feb came out later last year - early to mid-October. I made a call and they applied the coupon code and gave me my new total. It took about 10 minutes and was very easy.

Since we have the TIW card, and aren't usually waiting for dinning discounts, we always book room only first...as soon as we know we're going. That's been more than a year in advance more than once, but every time we've been able to apply a discount later, either AAA, AP, room only, or...? every time.

Good luck, ruthies12! I hope it works for you, too!

As the pp said, yes you can have FD applied if it's offered, as long as the resort you want is available under FD. But, keep in mind that if you book room only now and want to change to a package later, the room only will have to be cancelled/refunded and a package booked, requiring a new $200 deposit. Room only and packages are different reservation systems, so money paid toward one cannot be applied to the other.
