Is it better to just go ahead and book now if I'm ok paying the current rates but hoping for a discount to sweeten the deal? Looking at 10/5 - 10/12 at CSR, probably business king. Not sure what kind of supply is available on those and don't want to lose it waiting on a discount.

I to am hoping for a pin code or or FD. If not oh well. I did book a package with AAA which saved 10% which is better than nothing for Oct 5-11. Keeping an eye on things to.

I say yes, absolutely. That way you are booked for what you want. You can always change it if something better comes around! That's I do, too. I'm currently booked from a value room the week we want. I also have an ongoing search running through my Dad's RCI account to hopefully trade into DVC. If that doesn't work, at least then I still have a room booked. What makes me nervous is that my parents are coming and haven't booked their back up room yet....

Well, I got what I thought was a code last night. Woo hoo! I thought. Then I clicked the link, went through the selection steps and... priced my vacation exactly the same as if I did it on the regular website. Ah well. I'm just going to call in tonight and book with a AAA discount but hope for something better later!

You can book a room only reservation with a AAA discount directly with Disney. If you wish to book a package, you have to book through AAA and they are in charge of your reservation at that point (meaning any changes will need to be made by the AAA agent).

We have AAA so how do I get discount? Do I put in a code or something on the disney website? What % off is it?

I believe you have to call to book, and the % varies. Usually it is low, about 10%-15% for values, maybe 20% for higher resort categories. Also, it is not a guarantee that any AAA disncount will be offered at all. The best thing to do is call Disney and see what they have available for your dates. Good luck!

Another option is TA's. They also offer deals throughout the year also.

Add me to the list. We are heading down Oct 21 - 27 after a weekend at Siesta Key.
We are going to book at Caribbean Beach Resort, but where we finally end up will depend on the promotions for October. Hoping for free dining or a really great room discount.
Excited, it's our daughters first trip to DW (she'll be 3) and the first time the husband or I has spend more than a day there in over a decade.

I agree about booking now instead of waiting. Availability can be iffy in the fall at any of the Convention Resorts and CSR is very Popular

No need for a travel agent. Just keep checking these pages often and you will know more than most travel agents. lol

Happy planning.
