Then he priced out 5 day base tickets and said they were $259 and UT has a price of $269, I guess it's a savings, but I just went room only because I'd rather be able to have the option of being able to cancel 5 days before the trip just in case the unthinkable happens.
I did the same thing. The ticket discount was nothing like it was promoted to be.

I mean if UT didn't exist then the discount would be better, but I always order my tickets through them and have always had a good experience.

We're also room only at this point. I did save $330 with the Visa discount for our June POR trip. I'm currently on hold to see what the ticket discount is. Judging from what I've read here I'm not expecting much.

I got the promo email for WDW... Is there one for Disneyland? Taking PC cruise in May 13 and it ends in LA. Perfect opportunity to take my Sr parents there.

Just used this to book a regular room at Coronado Springs June 4th-12th for two adults and three children (11, 9, 2) with 7day MYW plus water park tickets. On the Disney website it would be $3264.31 and we paid $2674.12 for a savings of $590.19 or about 18 percent. The ticket discount didn't work out to be as much as I had figured but we will take what we can get.

Quote for Wilderness Lodge for the same trip was $3750.92 and for Beach Club $3824.12. Want to stay Deluxe just not sure it is worth the $1100 extra.

Thanks for letting us know the discount was available!

You could pay your whole trip once you get the card and get the points the following month.

You cant book this deal until it goes to the gp because you wont have your card number to pay at least the deposit with.

I just got off the phone with a very nice Cast Member, I changed our May 6-13 reservation at All Star Music, 5 day park hopper pass to the new discount. I saved $240, not great, but still a savings. I did hate the idea of paying full price without any Free Dining or anything, so the $240 is appreciated at this point.
The hold time on the phone was way too long, but did pay off in the end.

Total call was 40 minutes. I had a $200 gift card but they would only take my Disney Visa at payment for the deposit.

Talking TA finally got it done

We only saved $200 off our stay at POFQ but I will take it. We just did not want to switch to any other resort.
Also my agent said that the person she talked to said that the DV discount has been very popular so far.

I'm not sure if the biggest "plus" for you would be getting the rewards, or getting to book the discount early, so this may not work for you. But if you were mainly concerned with booking the promo asap, you could go to Chase tomorrow and get the debit card on the spot and come home and use it to apply the promo discount.

Thank you so much! We don't need tickets since we are traveling with family earlier in the week, arriving on Easter, so we just need the room only discount. I'll give a call tomorrow. Tonight, we watch POTC Dead Man's Chest!

Okay, here are my totals--for anyone who is wondering about a value for 8 nights:

POP-May 25-June 2 (8 nights)
4 "adults"--me, DH,DS,DD
9 day tickets with Park Hopper and Water Parks

Listed price-$2881.70
DVisa price-$2,504.88
Savings of-$376.82

Oh, remember the days of free dining--THAT would have been a savings of $1,120.

$13 (based on menus) X 4 (people) X 2 QS/day X 8 (days)=$832
QS is $35/day for "adults=$1,120
Difference of $288.

Then, I figure the snack and mug difference--

4 snacks @ approx. $4 for 8 days=$128
4 mugs @$16.58=$66.
128 + 66= $194

Still around $100 cheaper to go without QS IF we do a snack a day and mugs; however, is $100 worth the convenience of scanning a card? Something else that I have to think about.
Oh, wait--I forgot that QS includes dessert, which my figure of $13 does not. Now, are desserts at every meal worth $100?????
2003-CR, 2004-CBR and CR, May/June 2005--CR and POR, July 2006-CBR and Beach Club, December 2006--Wilderness Lodge, May/June 2007--CRTower and AKL, Nov. 2007--AllStar Sports, June 2008--Pop Century and AllStar Movies, December 2009--Wilderness Lodge, July 2010--CBR, Nov. 2010--Pop Century, May/June 2011--Pop Century, May/June 2012--Allstar Sports, May/June 2013--Pop

to pp...looks like you have your numbers right...and while I enjoyed the fun of soda mugs,and scanning a card for food...no, those things aren't worth the extra $$ IMHO! do your plan,and pay oop!
The only way all those extra desserts and drinks are 'worth it' is when dining is 'free'.... we never,ever finished all of the food at qs while on the plan. And my people can EAT.

Hi only to know because you have posted 2 differents scenarios, are you rtickets discounted or not, and if you can tell us how much you have saved switching form POFQ to POR because I already have posted that POFQ don´t will be discounted at all when I post the spreadshet. Thank you for your time and I´m very happy with your savings have a great 2013

Danny I saved 5% off my standard room at POFQ with this deal and I had the tix too.

8 nights, 8 day PH, with dining plan...and save 150 bucks. We weren't willing to switch resorts.
