When I said I've never had that happen, I was referring to the system asking for my pin code, but while we're on the subject...that's weird. How do they expect people to know about a code that they didn't mail or email? If they don't tell you when you ask, why even bother giving the code? On our most recent trip my parents paid and they looked up codes for all 3 families for me. Only my brother had a code and we wouldn't have known about it if I hadn't asked. I've asked about codes at least 5 or 6 times in the past few years and I've never been told they couldn't check. I'm glad, because I would have just hung up and called back to talk to a different CM, lol.

I've never been told no, either. They are always very polite and then, tell me no.

We went the first week of December in 2010, actually the same week as POP Warner kids were there and I did not think it was very crowded at all (and I do not love crowds at all). The only time it felt "crowded" was when we were at the fireworks/parade during MVMCP but that is just because you're all crammed into one space. I will try to find some pictures of our trip that show crowds when I get home today and post them for you.

Very excited to join. We are going 12/26-1/3 busy busy busy time of year but excited to be able to go back. You know it is a busy time of year when you can stay (rent) at BWV one bedroom for the same rate you are paying at POR.

We love the Poly but over $700 a night

12/26-12/30 POR
12/30-1/3 BWV renting from DVC owner

Dec 2013 Trip

I've had to change my dates three time between my hubby's schedule and mine. Hopefully, these dates will stick now. We are arriving on Dec 14th and staying until Dec 19th. I have already got a deposit made for POFQ but I would love to get a discount of any kind. Our trip price is currently around $2600.

i received an email the other day from Disney Destinations (usually get excited when they come from there!), but I couldn't read it - normally I'm asked if I want to show the images, but it didn't ask this time, so I have no idea what the email was about other than I could read a couple of things.

Did anyone else get an email the other day with this type of issue?

When did you receive it? I received an email and had no problem opening it. It might not have been the same one.

I've been hearing that CM's wouldn't look for a PIN any longer, so I decided to call. The CM I spoke with checked under my name and everyone in my party. Unfortunately, nothing.

Hello everyone! We're looking at returning to the world Dec. 5th until the 14th. We're hoping for free dining and will stay at POR, though any discount will help.

I'm worried there be an issue with a discount for those dates as in the current BB offer my dates are complete blacked out, so I'm hoping that doesn't hinder public discounts.

Okay, so curious now, if the BB is blacked out for those dates , has anyone seen or heard of anyone getting a BB for the week before Christmas? I'm trying not to worry to much , but I may have to switch resorts if there is no discount, which then I would switch to POR (want to try it anyways, but love my BC )!!

Booked our vacation today for AoA. I can't wait. I doubt there will be codes for the week after Christmas but we're still going!
