Hi! I'm new at this and was wondering what are pin codes and how do you know you have one? Is it like a coupon in the mail or is it a code on a Disney mailing? I just got our planning DVD and there is a code above our name, is this one? Or are they obvious? Thanks!!

Last year I got a pin for 30% off the rooms and free dining from Aug-Sept. A few days ago I received a pin for 35% off the rooms.

(I gave the possible arrival date of 4/16 since DD's b-day is 4/17) And of course I didn't have a PIN under my name anyways.

I received one last January and we originally booked under it but then I got a better deal with the free dining for this past trip.

Question on Pin Codes

I took the chance and called to see if we had a pin code associated with our name. Behold, DH had one tied to his name. (how he got one is beyond me because everything we have ever done or booked has been in my name... oh well - as long as we got one that is all that matters.)

Anyway, we got a code for 25% off for RO rates for next August. (For the AKL)

Can someone answer this for me.... Is the discount tied to which hotel and time of year? I see others mentioning 30-35% discounts, but I wonder for which hotels those are and at what time of year.

I did get an email with a pin code, but when I put in our info for hotel, and the travel dates, I still only got the same 25% from when I called.

I'll keep checking back, and I'm hoping that the closer we get to next summer, the will offer a better discount on the room rates.

OR, I'm keeping my fingers crossed as we bought AP's this year and I've seen that they sometimes offer better rates for AP's than the general public. (although that is not guaranteed)

That's how I asked for and got it on the phone *shrug*. Maybe you had a new person.

Funny/odd PIN story. In 2003, my wife booked a trip to DL for her boss for a trade show, and, for some reason, he wanted everything sent to her as well; they had no office, as it was either work from home or go to a client's office. Later, he needed her to go, so we made a family vacation out of it. At that point, however, there were no more rooms in the DL Hotel, so we stayed at the Holiday Inn across I-5 from DL.

Fast forward to 2009. We got a PIN code in the mail... for her old boss!

Got mine in the mail today!! 30% off of room or free dining!!

We used the free dining and saved $354 dollars!!

Funny part is that I had booked my trip (Feb 7-12th) and was thrilled to get the stay play & dine special. Two hours later I go out to get the mail and there is the pin in my mailbox!! I called them and it only took 10 minutes to change over to the free dining!! YAY!!

New here.. I am confused as to how you get the "pins". I did apply for the Visa and was instantly approved, so do the pins come with the card? Or is this a random thing? Do I need to sign up somewhere?
Thanks so much for your help, this is one overwhelming process!

Pins?

We traveled to Disneyland 7 years ago and have not gone since and we have decided to go to Disneyworld in May 2013. Now I did request a travel planning kit like 2 years ago and am going to attemp to request a new kit since we are for sure going, and never got to go until now. I just booked airfare for May23-June 1 to Orlando....what is the number to call and see if there is a code attached to our name? Should/ could there be?
