I really like waiting for the discount. I think it adds excitement!

In terms of the FP+ it looks like its an add on to the packages. Unfortunately, like the dining plan, it seems like it will not include the Dolphin.

Has anyone heard anything about Magic Bands??

I'm cool with waiting for the discount, but I've never planned a trip myself where getting the discount was applicable (offsite the last two times, and the nights we stayed onsite, we didn't know about discounts! What would we do without the DIS...) Not sure about how the early morning phone call process will go but nothing ventured, nothing gained, I guess.

I have a question for those who have the Disney Visa - is it actually helpful in terms of getting access to discounts earlier? Or is it the same limited availability?

I'm hoping when I make my reservation, the discount will already be out there! I'll be making mine in October sometime (i'm not worried about not being able to get a room, for one, it's the slow season and two, theres 6 resorts I could stay at! I highly doubt they could ALLLLL get booked)

We will not know the discounts until they are released. Until then, it is at best a guess. Disney is a company, and they can change their mind if they want depending on what they need to sell.

It is probably wisest not to plan around having a particular discount, in case it doesn't end up being released or is changed.

Disney Visa offer should come out about 10-12 days after that.
Then it will turn to a General Public offer near the end of the first week of October.
Question about promos. I am staying from Dec 30-Jan 7. What is a promo is for half of your stay? Would I get any discount?

Normally, package promos such as the Stay, Play & Dine or Free Dining, the reservation has to begin during the promo period, but the promo will apply to the entire package even if the package goes out past the promo offering period. Example: if S/P/D started on Jan. 3, you'd have to do a split reservation to get the promo at all because you are checking in before (dec30) the promo starts. Another example: if the S/P/D period was Dec 28-Jan 1, you would get the promo for your entire trip since your reservation would begin during the promo period.

Room only discounts apply only for the days of the offering period, but you can check in before the promo period starts. Example: if room only offer started on Jan 3, you'd get the discount for the nights starting on the 3rd, and nothing for the earlier nights. However, it could all be done with one reservation.

I said normally, because of course Disney could alter the rules with any future promos. However, this is how it has been in the past.

Has there been any informed speculation yet re: what exactly the RO percentages will be (i.e. 30% vs 35% for deluxe resorts)? Really hoping for at least 30% this year, but got nervous when I saw the GF/Poly at 20% this summer!

MLK weekend wasn't blacked out for RO last year, so will that likely be the case again this year?

Crossing the fingers!

I'd love to know percentages too so I can know exactly what I want on the day it's announced so I can make that call!
