Does anyone know if using the Orbitz promo, which By the way works for our dAtes with a 20% savings, if Magical Express can be used??

Not crazy about having to prepay entire stay, as we have a one night deposit with wdw now which I will have to cancel if we go ahead with the Orbitz, but for the savings would be worth it...

Note: got my own answer by "chatting with Orbitz"...the answer is yes you can use Magical Express...

If I book the Orbitz deal and free dining were to come out, could I add it on then since I would have the hotel and the tickets ?

Jewels...I think that answer is "no" since you would be getting a discounted room rate and booking it with a third party (Orbitz) rather than with Disney directly...free dining requires you to pay rack rate for the room and discounts can not be combined. You could always cancel this Orbitz reservation in the event that Free Dining came out, and rebook directly with WDW. I also priced the theme park tickets through Orbitz and does not look like any savingsl, so if we do this offer we will wait and buy them when we arrive. We do not like to pre-pay unless a discount is offered!

You are unable to get free dining if you book through a third party.

Just an FYI that there is a thread that I was reading yesterday that says that if you go through ebates, you can get cash back on orbitz, even with the spring20 code. Folks were using it for rooms and/or park tickets. Good luck!

I tried to plug in dates with Orbitz yesterday and for the room it was about a $190 discount, but when I added tickets it came out to only a savings of $77. I am not sure I would switch for that much. I am still hoping for that free dining pin.

yep, just need to call WDW. You can do online checkin too, just need to select booked as a group & have your confirmation number

Just cancelled our WDW room only ressie and re-booked with Orbitz with the 20% off sale...instead of pocketing the savings which is of course the smart thing to do, we decided to upgrade from POP to POFQ. Can't wait

We're Disney newbies-- can someone explain pin codes? I know they're a long code for a discount... But do you get them if you've already booked? Thanks!

Hi! Disney sometimes sends out emails and postcards that offer special Walt Disney World resort rates or deals to the recipients that are not available to the general public. For example, you may receive an email offering you the opportunity to take advantage of free dining if you book before a certain time or offering you a deluxe room at 35% off the going rate for a particular period. Disney uses a PIN (Personal Identification Number) so that only the recipient can use the code. I am not sure if people get sent them after already booking. I have only received them prior to booking before. Hope this helps.

T-Shirts

This is a little off topic from a pin code, but I want to be one of those dorky moms who has the entire family dressed a lot. Partly because it will be easier to keep up with 4 kids if they are all dressed the same. So for our trip to Disney I would like to get several sets of matching shirts, some disney. Any suggestions on where to get some cheap matching shirts in adult and kid sizes?

Just got off the phone with WDW...I asked about discounts for past June 14th. I mentioned that it seemed to be taking forever for them to come out this year. She said that fact would be an indicator that there might not be anything offered for summer travel this year and went into this long spiel about how the economy is up, the stock market is up, prices are rising and crowd levels are higher yada yada....then proceeded to kind of pressure me into booking at that moment instead of waiting.

I wonder if what she said was really true or if it just was a sales tactic to try and make her call conversion?? I find it hard to believe that Disney won't offer ANY specials for summer visits this year. When I mentioned that we go to Disney every 2 years for the last 10 years, she said "Well, this is not 2 years ago!" She was kind of snotty actually...not what you'd expect from a Disney CM.
