No, all that is required for you to have a chance at getting a PIN is to be registered on the Disney website. As long as you create an account, they will have you in their sysetm making you eligible to receive one. It is a big mystery as to the who, why, and when for any given PIN promotion, but you definitely don't have to be a repeat visitor.

We are going for 6n/6d with 3 adults and 2 children. The savings that they are advertising at 600 is based on a family of 4.

While on the phone today the save up to 600 was the best deal for our family. We are staying at POR for 6nights and have 6 day park passes we have 3 adults and 2 children. It all depends though on how many people you are traveling with to figure out what the best deal would be. Free dining would be the best for us but it looks like this is the next best thing. We added regular dining and had to get a courtyard view and it added 400 to our vacation package. Sorry if this is confusing

Did anyone else notice on the Chase site where it says, "ask about other great rates available 1/18-1/20/2013." Anyone have any idea what this means? Is this the next time they'll be announcing discounts?

The savings don't appear to be capped at $600. I just called and made our reservations.

Pop Century, preferred room, 2/7 - 2/15, 7-day tickets w/park hopper, quick service dining, 2 adults, 14 & 3 yr old and saved $789.87. I went on Disney's site and made the exact same package.

Is it February yet?!

ARRGH! I'm going to have to wait until I can hash through the numbers with my TA. Which probably won't be until next week. I don't think I can book using my Rewards ard, and then pay with another credit card, right? Because that's how I would have to do it--that, or wait until the dates open up for the general public.

On the good side, though, I originally planned to pay for the whole trip. Then MIL said she'd pay for hotel/tickets/dining plan. So, even if I'm "forced" to upgrade and get, say, concierge, in order to get a discount, it's going to cost me little or nothing. MIL does have a limit on what she'll pay, but it's a high one--enough to cover a week a the Poly with park hoppers and the regular DDP.

I booked yesterday with the new Visa discount. I tried 3 different weeks and none had value resorts available. We booked a moderate which is fine but just wanted to let you guys know they may have very low to no availability for many dates.

We're booked! January 30 to February 6
We used the dine/stay Disney Visa promo...
2 adults and a child for All-Star Music (standard) with 7 day park hoppers. We saved about $500 (it is 2417 full price and we paid $1922).

I asked if there was a PIN on my account, she said yes...BUT...the pin was some lousy deal. It made the same package $2241. The Visa deal was better.

I was ALSO told by the CM that there has been a lot of "pixie dust" flying around lately so keep looking for a FD promo in the next few weeks. That would save us about another $130...so let's hope!!!! :

In any case....WE'RE GOING TO DISNEYWORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just curious which weeks you were looking at? I am hoping for a value resort from 1/9-1/15....specifically AS Movies....*biting nails*

I just booked airfare this a.m. because airfare has been slowly creeping up and wanted to lock in our fare before it was out of our budget. Hope I didn't make the wrong move *assuming* that there would be a value with our dates................
