PIN assignment, ah, the unknown. Seriously, no one really knows how they are assigned. I've never knowingly had one! Some get them in an email, others via snail mail. You can call and ask if there's one assigned to your household.

My boyfriend and I both have valentines week off from work so I'm hoping to surprise him with a Disney Trip. I'm thinking I'll ask him to put the dishes away or some chore he hates and then when he opens the cupboard he'll see the magical express packet. I can't wait to see the look on his face! I'm glad to hear that the value resorts have minie fridges now. It will save a lot of our budget to stay at pop century as opposed to a moderate resort. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for a free dining or room discount offer that week. Does anyone know when february offers are usually released?

Yeah, I got a mailer yesterday that I knew for sure was a PIN. Instead it was an offer for dates in December just before Christmas week for $100/night at a Value. Is that even a deal. I remember we went one year before Christmas and our room at POFQ was only $91. Ahh. the good ole days of '00s. Getting kind of worried. Can't remember Disney ever going this long without some sort of special.

I'm getting worried about our week. We are heading down 2/2-2/9. I looked today and BLT and BWV's 2BRs are booked.

That week is supposed to be pretty dead. When we went in 2011, everything was walk on but TSM. I'm terrified it will be packed.

Still, since they have been heavily discounting around the holiday's, I'm hopeful.

We are going with a big group and will go no matter what, but I doubt we'll go again for a long time. The price went up over 35% from 2011 for the same week. That's pretty insane. It's to the point where we can go to one of the actual countries in EPCOT for about the same price.

In the past, if I remember right, the % would vary depending on the resort level. So maybe 35% off at the Poly but only 25% off at Carribean Beach. I would expect the same type of thing here.

If you have a WDW travel agent worth their salt they will be watching for the discounts & calling/e-mailing you to tell you it is applied & you won't have to do anything. If you get a direct PIN they can also apply that to your deal for you.
If you booked your own then unfortunately you have to monitor for the discounts & then call yourself to WDW reservations & work with them to get it changed.

Is it on the disney.com site or is there somewhere else I should go to get notifications of these PINs.
No one knows for sure the magical formula to get a PIN. I would suggest signing up for anything/everything you can WDW related. They have a couple e-mail newsletters, the movie club & movie rewards, enter contests they sponsor, request a copy of the planning DVD from their website, etc.
When you are at the parks, if you get a chance do a survey & give them your name & address.
There is also a Disney Visa card. Even if you never use it, maybe get that. (If you do use it you get points to use @ WDW and I think they have a no interest window if you put your WDW trip on it. Not much maybe 2 or 3 months, but hey, that is 2 months you can leave the $$ in savings & take the interest before paying the bill.)
I'm totally guessing, but imagine the more your name & address is in their system the better your odds of scoring one.

The discount for POFQ is 5%. I switched to CSR for a 25% discount! I also had the CM price out WL which was a 25% discount also. I'm not sure about the other resorts though.

Anyone know if AOA Little Mermaid rooms are excluded?

Where do you find this? I just booked WL on Monday for our pre-cruise stay, still hoping for FD though.

I called WDW as soon as I saw the announcement on the Disboards came out. The CM was so patient with me as I had her price out POFQ, POR, CSR and WL. All of them were 25% off except for POFQ which was only 5%.

You have to book with a Disney Visa card though. I imagine that the discount will go to the general public on Monday, but that's just my own prediction.

Thank you so much! I did book with my Disney Visa

I just applied the new discount and want to clarify. I had a really great CM and he explained what it is a little bit more. There are two discounts. The first is a room only discount and I didn't go much further than that with the percentages.

The second is called Play/Stay/Dine and if you book all three items on your package it gives a certain amount off. It is up to $600 at a value resort. I'm staying at CSR and it took $765 off my package which worked out to roughly 20% total. Not QUITE as good as FD but very very close for us. I'm very happy! We are staying 8 nights, Jan 31-Feb 8, 9 day MYW tickets without hopper, and regular dining plan. The CM said he wasn't sure exactly how the percentage was coming off (if it was a few days free or an overall percentage).

Hope this helps! I'm anxious to see the full details in writing so I can figure out what the discount might have been for other resorts.

Just thought I would pass along. It might make sense to have the CM price out both discounts for you to see which is better. For us, the package discount was $400 better than RO.
