I seriously would bet money that there's some crossover of symptoms and/or internal chemical response (release of endorphins, etc.) shared by us Disney addicts similar to what you might see with low level substance abusers. It would make a fascinating study if it hasn't been done already.

You beat me to it! That's a pretty tricky thing they do there, too. It looks so set in stone that it has to be 5, and so many people wouldn't even know to try the 3 days with the offer (or even think to try it!). You'd just assume it's 5 and book it. Nice hearing about these kinds of tips here...

Just punched the numbers.. The price increase I assume will factor in with the change in booking. But its still something. Present package comes out to $1094.86 (rack rate at the time I booked was 1277.12) If I add a dining plan it would be around 360 for 2 adults for stay. Making it 1454.86 on the discounted room rate. Rack rate right now is 1326.12 so I would save $128. If they would have included the 26th date before the rate increase I would save $49 more. So I will still have to decide regardless if I want to pay the extra $231 to get "free dining". As we will be getting off a disney cruise prior to the stay we may not be so hungry anyways.

As long as you tap loudly enough for the fairies to hear it & REALLY believe, then sure it does!

Well, ended up calling Disney today anyways so went ahead and had then check again for a PIN, nope. No surprise there, and no hints from CM. I had to call as on a whim today I thought, I'll login to Delta to double check our flights again. (I've heard to keep a watch as seats and times are known to change)

Well imagine my surprise when there was a notice saying a flight had changed etc. Well changed is an understatement, my return connecting flight was a different flight with a 3+ hour layover! So got to pick a better time flight leaving Orlando so we have less of a layover for no charge and we get more time the morning we leave to eat Breakfast at the resort. So it worked out. Had to let Disney know so they could fix it in their systems and Magical Express.

Same thing happened to us on our recent Denver trip. 1 hr layover to a 4 hour. You can legally cancel a reservation without penalty if they alter the trip by more than 3 hours. We just had lunch at on of those "fancy" airport eateries. But we could have drove home in that 4 hours....

Similar thing happened to me this trip too. We were flying United and they changed our flight to include a three hour layover. It's already a red-eye and we are traveling with young kids. Ultimately, they ended up putting us on another airline, no extra charge.

Thank you for making me smile! I really needed this... I've been on vacation for the last 1 1/2 weeks and was hoping for some type of news during my vacation... but no.. no such luck.

I will hope on one of the FD fairies!

This is the latest I've ever made FDing reservations......assuming they will still extend the deal . It's making me really really nervous, because soon we'll be in our 45 day window so I'll have to pay the FULL price at booking!!! Yowzers!

Is there a certain day of the week (for the general public and for Visa-holders) that they typically announce new offers? Or is it just random?

Okay, I ran the numbers and here they are.....

We would save $1592.83
My parents would save 1062.42
My aunt would save 2272.81 (that is including their portion of our room, because they have 5 total. One of them will be sharing a room with us)

Grand total savings is $4928.06. Now that's a lot of Mickey bars!!!!!

Pretty sure the September offer started Monday for Visa holders and Thursday for GP. Someone will correct me if I am wrong.
