I just called and to add the quick Service plan to our 7 night vacation would have cost about $600. With the extra 10% off the room. I declined because we will just get food from the grocery store. I might check back up on it in a few weeks though and see if they are giving a deeper discount.

thanks again!

Did you call the regular reservation line yourself or did you have the cast member who booked the room call the cast member line? WE have a friends and family discount for October and I was just curious if I would be able to call to apply any further discounts.

So the first time you called the main WDW reservation number and just asked about the discounted dining plan and further friend and family discount of 50 percent and they added that just like that would do for any other discount? Tonight you are calling the actaul cast member line, I thought only a cast member could do that?? I would like to know what you hear from that. Thanks!

You should call the number that is on your confirmation. I believe it is not the regular line.

I called last night they were still offering 15% off DDP. If you have the discount with cast member staying in the room you can get 40% off adult DDP but no discount on children's.

The CM line just kicks you to the main reservation line. It just lets them know the type of call they're getting. They don't offer different discount rates on different lines. They're based off the type of reservation. Deeper discounts are out through May now.

Pinkerbell & ReyNM,

It's not likely you will see "deeper discounts". What's up is what will stay up til the end of May. It probably won't be until beggining of Sept to see promos for October. Currently your room booking (whether the regular CM discount room price or the "Other Guest" price) is the only discount open. If you want the DDP, it would be at full price, UNLESS closer to time frames they offer a promo.

The pricing is unlikely to change. The CM promo (where the extra 10% off the regular room discount is offered) and the approx. 40% off the DDP is highly highly unlikely to change for the remainder of the year (and it won't get cheaper, the 2012 to 2013 prices went up $2 a day for adults).

The "Other Guest" offer is also highly highly unlikely to change. The current special prompo of the extra 10% off the regular "Other Guest" room and the 15% off DDP and that isn't going to change.

Pinkerbell- your CM friend was probably thinking of the price she would have been offered if she herself was staying in the room (a CM booking), there's only the 15% discount that goes with the Other Guest offer.

I haven't called back, my CM friend did that for me. I got an email from him first thing this a.m. and a new ressier. He arranged to get us a bigger discount somehow and now we have two ressies? I think we are getting 60% off the room now when he is there with us (same resort not room) and 50% when he is not. And I think 15% on dining plan. Since he has been VERY generous and is VERY busy, I don't want to question him more about this, he has gone above and beyone (including putting down our deposit on both ressies!! and not even asking for it back - which I have paid and will on this next one he just made) And it's confusing to me I can only imagine it's confusing to him as well. Just keep calling! (to the music of "just keep swimming! - nemo) Good Luck! :good vibes:

Yes, that's good! Any days he is there with you staying at the resort, of HIS CM ressie he can book up to three rooms locked under the CM offers (the DDP gets locked in at the lower rate and the rooms too, it's all part of his one ressie). Sounds like he got the 60/40% off. When he checks out, it starts a new ressie he can lock in a "Other GUest" offer for you which would lock in the 50/15%. That's great that he's being so nice to. The deeper discount on the DDP is *awesome* and the deeper discount on the rooms is great too.

Sounds right. They split it because one is a CM discount since he will be there and the other is Friends and Family when he won't be there. Two different discounts = two different ressies

I called myself. It's already in the computer that I'm a Friends & Family since my CM friend made the original reservation for me.

So i think I am getting the 60 40 YEA!! but it is odd that the price they told my friend for the meal plan is 19.99 per adult and 14.99 per child - that is not 40% off the price of the plans per almost every site I visited listing the prices at 37.58 and 14.32 regularly. It's just hared for him and me to understand how they figure pricing out. I wish it wasnt such a mystery -
