You do have to buy it from photo pass because the ghosts are digital additions-- so that's one you can't get done with your own camera.

I'm currently planning a trip to the Mouse House Sept 8-14 and my wife and I will be bringing our 2 yr old and <1 yr old. First time taking kids to Disney so I'm sure it will be fun! Excited to see fall promotions hopefully soon and stretch my accumulated disney bucks from the disney visa card!!

Try signing up for everything free online- the free planning DVD ect... That may help?
We went last time with my parents and sister and her fam, and had 3 seperate room ressies. I am planning on going back in October, they aren't... But they both got pins and I didn't haha. It may be because I've already booked and Disney k we I was going anyway so they didn't want to send me one... Who knows.

I don't know what actions are likely to get you a PIN. I am signed up for everything and all the vacations are booked under my name -- with the exception of one trip back in 2004, which was booked in DH's name. Yet, DH gets PINs once or twice a year and I have never received one. Maybe they know I am going anyway and they don't need to send me one lol.

Thanks both of you! I've signed up a bunch of places for a bunch of things but no pins yet. I just upgraded to the new premium disney credit card from the old card so maybe that will trigger something? Who knows - but thanks again wasn't sure if there was a specific "thing" I had to sign up for or not.

Have you tried calling in to check if you have a PIn? I never get them in the mail or email but I've gotten them by calling and asking to heck under our family name!

I got something in the mail from Disney Destinations on Monday and started freaking out. I thought it was a PIN. I opened it and it said "we are glad you are thinking of coming in August. Here are some great discounts (or something like that). I was so let down I wanted a PIN for September. I only clicked on the August link to see how far out the discounts went. I will still wait patiently for my discounts

Ha! What did I just tell you? I went out to get the mail a little while ago and there is a card with a PIN in DH's name! LOL

It might not even be a good deal, I don't know. It's for summer dates and we aren't going until September. But still, *I* never get them.

Hi everyone!

Does anyone have an idea when the September room discounts will come out? We're booked for 9/13-9/21 and hoping to apply the room discount to our reservation!

TIA

I'd really love to go to Disney this Sept, but without a good discount it's not happening. DS turns 3, and I'd love to take him before I have to buy him a ticket. DD turns 14, but I admit I have concerns about taking her out of school for a week. Either way without a great discount it won't be happening. Come on Disney give me a great deal.

Thank you - we still have to book our first night, if we did that on rack rate are we then entitled to free dining if it happens and is it just for the number of nights we are booked?

So my BF's sister got a code today in the mail for a stay and play package, dates 09/14-09/30. She says it didn't give specifics on percentages, and didn't include dining but did say you could add that. She's going to call tomorrow to get more info but I was wondering if anyone here knows what the stay & play deal is - the only rate published in her flyer was $712 for adult, $289 kid, based on 6 night stay in value resort. Would this be like a room discount - only apply to the dates listed, or would it apply for whole trip if any date listed falls in the stay? Has anyone used this type of discount before? Is it even a real discount or just another teaser like the fake mail pins that were distributed last month? I'm a bit antsy to get details from her on it tomorrow so I can crunch numbers, and also jealous that I didn't get the same offer (we're vacationing together & have the same dates stored on Disney website profiles, darn you pin distribution system!! lol)

Do you know if the code is 3 digits or 15 digits? If it is only 3, it is not a discount and just an advertisement. If it is 15, there should be some amount of savings, but it really should say something like "save up to XX%" somewhere on the flyer. If it is a true PIN, she can book up to 3 rooms with it. Good luck!

No, didn't think to ask about the pin length. Guess I'll just have to wait for her to report back tomorrow. Thanks for your help though! If I get good news I'll post it here for everyone also. I know a pin discount isn't much help to GP but maybe you can score it by asking a reservation rep. putting good ju-ju out!!!
