Since the rumor is that the summer GP rate will be up to 30% I've got my fingers crossed that an AP discount will beat that. Since MK resorts have usually seen lower discounts, I would be surprised to see 30% off at the WL. We would be willing to switch to YC or BC if the discount is better there. Does anyone remember what the AP discount was at the Epcot resorts last summer?

Still not booking until AP discounts are out...

Just book it with $200 down and add the discount later. Also look at the other post on what the discounts should be and and the question over there. Should be the same as the current spring discounts sounds like.

You know this actually decreases the chance of a discount right? Disney offers discounts to fill rooms, and if the rooms are booking up then they have no incentive to offer them. People do this with free dining and they will eventually kill their chances of getting it. What you want is for Disney to see a low room demand for a certain period of time, then they will begin to offer discounts and promotions to try and fill them.

Gotta agree with you. That's why I'm still waiting to book.

Well if you don't mind possibly getting your 3rd choice or not going then wait. I myself want the exact room type I want. I will let people like you wait and keep disney coming out with discounts.

I don't think a 5-10% discount is worth possibly not getting what I want. You could say the same thing about not reserving dining 180 days out as well and not going to disney all together.

In the end you need to draw the line some place be it 2, 4, 6, or however manus months out. Lots of flexibility helps but most of us probably have to secure a weeks worth of vacation a few months out.
