I'm sure it's been asked (probably in this thread) but, is there any indication that this new special offer will go live on the website tomorrow morning? Or will it only be available if calling?

That seems to be the $64,000 question.

We have a late Nov/early Dec trip planned, but due to DH's work need to reschedule for late Feb/early March. Hoping the deal/s will work out for us to match or better the price we already have.

Regardless, I'll be on the phone tomorrow morning...

Good luck moving everything around if you need to
I agree with ^^^
Unless you are in the Little Mermaid rooms you should still get the discount.
And I would point them to these boards. I know that discounts are posted here (or at least rumored) DAYS before disney sends travel agents the info. It kind of stinks. If you aren't on here and you are not paying attention to others then agents don't know until (usually) later in the day that the offer is open.

We are in the Little Mermaid rooms. My sister and BIL had planned to go to Disney for their honeymoon, but when they found out they were expecting and due just two months before their wedding, they called it off. So we wanted them to have a separate room for the trip.

And I specifically said in my email to the TA that I heard about the discounts on DISboards and she still said there was nothing that she knew of, so I dunno!

I guess I'll just email her when they go public tomorrow and ask about switching to Pop and pricing things out!

Thank you everyone who has offered advice!

My travel agent didn't know about the deals either. She had no idea what I was asking about and quoted me a savings of just $300. We have friends going with the same reservations as ours that saved $1,300. So, I'm hoping that once my TA looks into it, my savings go up, too.

A little advice.

The sample pricing for value resorts in the email that I received is $1968. That is for 2 adults, 1 junior, and 1 child with the QSDP for 5 nights and 6 day base tickets. When I got a quote for Pop for 4 nights,(2 adults and 1 junior) it was for $16xx. I don't remember the exact price, but that seemed on par with their sample pricing. But, when I got a quote for All Star Sports for 5 nights, the price was $1268, so we booked that. I didn't question the CM, but I was, and am still shocked by the almost 25% reduction in cost. We love Pop, but am willing to stay at All Star Sports if it will put $400 back in our pockets and give us an extra night with meals. I also noticed that All Star Sports room only price for my dates were $85 a night. After 25% off, that's about $64 a night. So, if you're willing to stay there, I would suggest at least getting a quote for the All Stars. Good luck everybody!

Have you received a confirmation with your reservation details? POP is generally priced higher than the All-Stars, however, that seems like an awfully big price difference. I would make sure everything is listed on the reservation correctly.

I'd switch from AoA to Pop, but not to an All Stars, especially not Sports, but that's just me! I can't believe the price difference is so much though!

I understand your position. I almost feel the same. To reward my wife for being willing to stay there, I'm going to book a 2 night room only at a deluxe to end our vacation.

Yes, the confirmation is what made the decision a little easier to stick with. I originally asked for a quote for 4 days and thought that I booked that. But after the confirmation email, I realized that it was for 5 nights.

Special offer

When I looked at the offer on the chase website (it has since disappeared from the site) it said to book fast that the offer will be offered to the general public on the 10th.

I called at 7am (6 my time) and was speaking with someone within 5 minutes. She told me that the only special she had was room only discount that would save us around $150. No stay, play, dine. Then she asked me to call back later in the day because the system wouldn't update our reservation. Grrrr! I set my alarm for nothing. :-(
