It's still quite hot (expect a lot of sweat), but the crowds are really low and for me that makes the heat a lot more bearable. The rain really is unpredictable. The trips we've taken in September have seen some rain, but nothing out of the ordinary for Florida in summer. There's just no telling though with it being hurricane season. That being said - we were there the last week of August this past year while a hurricane was along the coast and we had awesome weather. We arrived on Saturday and I didn't sweat until Wednesday. It was so nice! There was one day of varying amounts of rain all day - but that made for a practically empty Magic Kingdom. It's not often you can walk on to Peter Pan's Flight.

Got the same mailer as well this week. Wondering which are included in the 35% as well. We actually "rented" points and there are 9 of us staying at Bay Lake Towers instead of 2 rooms at the Poly because of the savings. If I call out of curiousity...well actually my Disney OCD ...I will post. Wish I could transfer the pin to someone!

My daughter and her husband also got the mailer. We are going in July this year so the dates aren't good for us. Hopefully, something will come out in July like the last couple of years when we went.

some hotel info

Don't know if this will help anyone but I received the same PIN and as we were planning a September trip it was perfect! After years of waiting and mutiple Disney visits finally, a PIN!!!

I called today to see what the discounts were on a few different rooms. Not the most knowledgable CM - she wasn't able to tell me if the PIN was good for 35% off deluxe, less on moderate and so on. She also couldn't tell me which resorts this PIN applied to. She did me there were no rooms available in Sept. for Arts of Animation Suites. We tried a few different dates so her thought is that AOA was not included in this offer. She did give us prices for 35% off the Poly and BC so I think we'll be staying deluxe. I may try again later just to make sure about AOA though. I didn't ask about any of the moderates. If anyone else gets more info about this room discount please let us know! Thanks!

Sandy

I am on the phone right now with the most ding battiest CM ever. Just trying to find out if POFQ is included in the discount and she keeps saying "bear with me one moment", for the past 20 minutes. She's very nice....but.

Oy, she just said that the only mod resort included is Caribbean Beach. I'm calling again to get a different CM.

Edited again: Ok, finally. I stuck with this CM, got POFQ for Sept. 22. It came out to a 20% room discount, but since discounts at POFQ are so rare, I booked it. Don't know if I'm gonna keep it, though.

Thanks for sharing! So maybe just the deluxe resorts have the 35%. Would CBR have had 35% ? I'm glad you were able to get a discount on POFQ though. Enjoy whenever you go!

Yes, I'm thinking that the deluxe resorts get the 35% discount. CBR was the same as POR, I didn't ask but I'm guessing it's probably the same 20%. I'm probably gonna call and switch to April, though. I was so frustrated with the CM and the time spent on the phone that I just wanted a number, any number, and confirmation that POFQ was included. It seemed like she was confused about the PIN and the dates, she kept telling me that it was a package discount, which it wasn't. Sometimes I wonder why I'm so polite. Thanks, mom.

Yes, I am a loon. Just called back, a much better experience with a much more knowledgeable CM. I did a complete turnaround on this one....canceled for September (which I wasn't too happy about anyway) and re-booked POFQ for March with free DDP! I'm just happy to get POFQ with a discount, and since we'd be buying a dining plan anyway, FD is good for us. Whew. My work is done. Wait'll DH gets home and I tell him we're going on March 3. So for the two of us, it's about a $560 savings, vs. the measly 20% room discount.

I got one of these as well and wish there was more info, I don't have the patience to call and be on hold forever. For example, it just says free dining and the dates, but is that the regular plan with a value or do you get the quick service plan? Also it states 5 night/6 day, but I wonder if it could be used for 3 or 4 nights? Anyone?

I booked using this pin code (% room off), for an AKL Savannah view and it seemed to save us between 25-30%. Probably would have been higher for a standard room, but I wantyed to splurge the extra bit for the Savannah view!

I got the Ariel code a few days ago. But I kept putting off calling because I didn't want to wait on hold for hours.

Yesterday I called and got a CM within 4 minutes, booked YC GV CL at 35% off, and the entire call was less than 20 mins

Maybe phone traffic is slowing down....
