Remember - these discounts are offered to fill rooms... if rooms are pretty well taken for your dates ... not much of a need to discount and so the discounts are considerably weaker.

ALSO - besides dates, discounts vary considerably by resort.. the LM rooms are in high demand and so its not terribly surprising they would be discounted less than others.

You should call back and check for different resorts (Pop Century for example) and I suspect you will see considerably different discounts.

Would someone mind checking my trip costs? This will be my first trip to WDW and was waiting out FD for Jan, but here is what I (hopefully) came up with:

Dates: 1/9-1/15 7days/6nights
Resort: AS Movies
Room: Preferred
Tickets: MYW Base Tickets
Dining: QS
Guests: 2 Adults/2 Children/1 infant

Cost of package: $2585.64--less 25% discount ($646.41)= $1939.23

The cost of the package before I added the QS dining offer was $1962.84....so if I'm figuring correctly it is actually a better deal than FD would have been.....right?

I am not a Disney Visa Card holder, so I would be booking with the GP on Oct 10th, but would like to start getting my airfare locked in if the math looks good to everyone here! Thanks!!

The 25% discount is on the room only, not the entire package. I don't believe you can price the pakcage discount online, you'll have to call for that.

Yay thank you! I just booked for 8 nights for 2 adults and 2 kids, with regular dining plan at the French Quarter, 1 day park tickets for $2416.08. We did one day tickets because we upgrade them to season passes once we get there.

This is *almost* as good as free dining, so I'll take it!

I priced out ASMo for my dates in Feb. Yours wouldn't be as much, but it will give you an idea.

2/8-2/18 at ASMo

3 Adults
1 Child
5 day base tix
Dining Plan (not quick service, i believe you have to upgrade at value resorts)
$2941.44

You got free QS dining basically. I priced it out with free QS dining and it's exactly the discount you got gor 3 adults in the room. So this package deal with 3 or less adults you are getting 'free dining' in a value. In a value with 2 adults and 2 jr's it would still be free dining equivelant.

In a moderate and deluxe I can't think of any way to run it that it would be equal or better than free dining. It's going to come up to be a bit less of savings than what FD that we are used to is.

Ahhh....sorry about that! I thought it was too good to be true...that's why I posted to make sure! LOL I guess I'll be calling Oct 10th to get some prices for the package deals.....

If any of you Visa card holders do a package deal discount, specifically a Value resort + QS dining.....would you mind posting the numbers here? I'm pretty sure with doing a value resort, it would make sense to do the dine/play/stay discount package vs. room only discount.....right?

Ugg....it was so easy to do the math if it was a FD'ing discount

I just booked POP in Feb. for 4 nights, 2 adults, 2 children, with 4 days of base tickets, and the DDP.

The room discount worked out to $2,407.52.

The play/stay/dine worked out to $2,169.78.

I'm guessing you can tell which way we went

I may call back and price out a mod. both ways as we want the DDP, but all and all, I'm pretty happy with the price and very happy to finally "know" when we'll be traveling.

Good luck!

What's the difference between a junior and a child?

What's the upcharge to add a Park Hopper to the tickets?

It's just child/adult with a child being 3 - 9 years old - PH is $57 to upgrade per person regardless of age for all tickets.

Okay, this is crazy! I called for the THIRD time today and got another very nice CM who managed to get me a discount of $559. I changed absolutely nothing vs. the first two calls. Makes no sense to me. Makes me wonder if I call a FOURTH time, will I save even more? I think I'd still rather have FD and will continue to watch for it, but I took this for now. That means we had to give up our LM room , but I'm not surprised. Still not 100% certain whether we'll keep the reservation or head back to Liki Tiki ... decisions, decisions.

Oh and I looked at the offer on the rewards site and it says $101/person/night for a moderate room, tix, and DDP. I couldn't get close to that and I still don't get why b/c the first week of Feb is one of the lowest crowd times. The CM couldn't explain that and I finally gave up trying for it. I'm looking forward to the offer going public so I can play around with dates and resorts myself online.

For those it may help ... Our deal wound up being $2319.27 for 2 adults and 1 child for 8 nights at Pop Century std room w/ 7-day MYW tix and DDP (not QS). Dates are 2/1-2/9.
