It's just hared for him and me to understand how they figure pricing out. I wish it wasnt such a mystery -
The children DPs are rack rate. Only adults are discounted.

If the CM is staying with you in the room you'll get the 60%.

This is the price for the cast member staying in the room with you. If they aren't then you should call back because from what I have read they will send someone by to check if the cast member is there. I called and was quoted that discounted package also before realizing their mistake.

I have talked to several CM's at this point, yet I never get the whole story. Yu have been far more helpful than any of them. It's almost like I'm running a gauntlet Even for my CM friend. We agree they are always nice, but why do we have to pull inforamtion out of them?
I was also just told that I can get ANY room at the same price - yup no price change from pool view to preferred pool view??? So then the % off cannot remain the same (60%) as those rooms have different pricing... this is getting maddening

Well I agree that the CM should be staying with if they are getting the CM rate/not the friends rate but that said in the many many times I have stayed with my daughter (a CM) on property not once has anyone come knocking on our door to see who is there and even then much of the time she is at work or we are out somewhere and I doubt they pilfer through our things. There would be no way of telling for sure. I suppose it's possible but I have never experienced it or heard of it happening. For the CM rate though the CM does the checking in and paying. She always wants to stay at the resorts! I couldn't get her not to if I tried LOL - mom buying food and checking out all the different resorts is a lot of fun for her and me.

For the Friends rate she just goes in ahead of time and shows her ID to the resort.

This is not true. And I am not entirely sure the percentage is exact (we never do the math) but when the CM pulls up the page for resort availability (and they have to do it through their portal) then it will show what is available and the different prices. For a deluxe (if available in these categories) it will show say standard and the price and then plus or minus for different other views (theme park, lagoon, concierge, outer building, etc).

My daughter always does it online unless it is one of the special deals when you have to call in and use a code.

well, he has not used the portal and they are very well aware he is NOT staying in the room as he and his family have their own ressie, yet on my reservation confirmation it says Cast 60 room + Quick service dining

I am a bean counter by nature, number cruncher, call it what you will, but there is no way to figure out what is costing what based on what we have been told and what we are paying ?????
and I really don't care, excpet when he asks me questions like
what are you paying for ____ and how much is _____
there is no answer other than IT IS CHEAP and all good!!! lol

Yeah go with that - also - like another poster said it appears if he is also at the resort and linked all of the reservations it's fine. We have never done that.

The discount stays the same but the room category will effect the price just like with any other discount. No idea where the CM got that

This is correct. They can book up to 3 rooms (like AP holders and pin codes) as long as they are going and they get linked up. So it sounds like it's all fine.
