For the first time EVER, I was just sent a PIN code and I can't even use it. Anyone else get one lately?

It's Remy offering me free quick service dining for travel from Feb 28th to July 3rd when I purchase a 4night/5day package.

Hi there - just catching up on some trip report - hoping to get mine reopened so I can continue it!

But yes - in the last few months I have gotten THREE pin codes. Can't use any of them. Especially since DH just got into graduate school. And he says he's not ready to go back! Oh well!

I don't think we've ever gotten a pin but then again it would probably go to waste anyway since we're DVC members! I don't think DVC gives out pin codes.

A Pin!! Here's hoping you get one that you can actually use for your Christmas trip!!

The last couple years we haven't gotten any either. But, this year we've gotten 2!! (room only discounts but I'll take them!!) Wish I had gotten your pin code though.....5 day package w/ free quick service....ahh...it's exactly what we wanted!!!

I was soooo excited to get one, even though its not for the dates we wanted. I'm hoping this was the first of many! Oh, and I'm really hoping I get an upgrade offer like you did too... that was sweet!

Three! What were they for? Busy time eh? It's too bad you can't use them but it sounds like they'd really like to lure you back.

I think it had something to do with a quote I called in for a few months ago when Alex's friend was going to come with us. She misheard my last name so she was getting all my information over again to put into their system. The PIN came thru with the misspelled last name. Hey, it still worked!

George told me he ran into some DVC members on our second Blizzard Beach day and they got to chatting. (Too bad they didn't talk him into joining! ) They told him they hadn't used their DVC points for their trip this time because the free dining was just too cheap to pass up.

I was thinking of that when I got it, "Gee, Angie could use this!"

I'm a little bummed today because last night I started playing around with quotes using the PIN code, pricing it around my birthday in June. Man it's a great offer. I upgraded the quotes to the regular dining plan and it was barely any difference.

Then I got sucked into saying to myself, "Hey, I wonder how much more it would be if I did a DELUXE RESORT?" I mean, when am I ever going to go deluxe?! So I went over the list of resorts and immediately chose Animal Kingdom Lodge. Ariana's Lion King obsession?

A standard room at AKL, upgraded free quick service to regular dining in June is half the cost of our Christmas trip to POR. It's killing me not using the PIN.

What do you guys think about the free dining PIN going out covering February to July? Do you think that's a sign the deals will be good for 2010? Maybe the free dining will get extended into Nov/Dec like last year?

I've never received a darn pin from Disney! I guess they know that I'm coming back whether I get one or not. Too bad you can't use it though.

They were all room discounts - I think all three were 30% rooms, just different dates. It's such a stupid busy time - we're moving in July! But still - I wannt go to Disney!! I would love to be lured - maybe next summer? Definitely not another 10 years though!!

I'm sorry about the great deals! I did that too, and it was incredibly depressing. I tried yesterday also for dates that might work in the future - those were depressing the other way, in that they were really expensive! Even staying at a value was just about as much as our honeymoon, and I would need something less than that to convince hubby. Oh well - will just have to keep an eye out.

And yes, I think they're going to keep doing the discounts. I don't think they'll have anything new, but I think the economy is not enough better yet for them to do less than they did last year. We'll see!!

I just found your thread and spent the last hour or so going through it (stuck home b/c it's snowing) and LOVE it! I love the pictures of Blizzard Beach and typhoon Lagoon. I have been debating on getting the waterparks and more or just a one day ticket and you have pushed me into keeping both in our plans. We are staying in POR in May for our 5 year old daughter first trip and can't wait.
Your kids seem like such great kids. I love how close your older son is with the little one. My daughter is 5 already and will probably 9 or 10 by the time we have another. I hope our kids have a relationship like that. You must be so proud of all your kids.

Well I'm going to buy myself a Lotto Max ticket today. It's up to $50 million and then there are nine $1M prizes as well. If I win anything, I'm going in June and December!

Moving and graduate school, yeah that'll keep you busy. Maybe you can sell him on this summer... after the move? Especially if you get another kick butt PIN code.... it would be so relaxing to get away for a little while.

I'm pretty optimistic too the deals will keep going. I really hope so. I'd never thought a deluxe resort would even be a consideration for us.... it would be fantastic if we could do AKL in December.

Hello and to my TR! POR in May for your daughter's first trip? Oh wow, that is exciting! Share your details!

Thank you, they are great kids and I'm very proud of them for similar and different reasons.

I wish! We're moving mid-July and he starts school mid-August! Oh well. Soon enough, though! I will wear him down

We considered AKL for our Honeymoon, but decided on POR instead - and it was great. I know AKL is gorgeous though and I hope it works out for you guys!

Ahh...it must be sooo frustrating to finally get a pincode and not be able to use it!! Especially, when you are pricing it...at AKL and it's less expensive than your Christmas trip. On the other hand...you just have to keep reminding yourself that going at Christmas is what you've always wanted to do. Still...it must be hard seeing such a difference in price!!

We've already gotten 2 pin codes this year... so you never know,there may be another one in your future too!! I think with all the room discounts, free gift cards and free dining already out there for this year there is a very good chance that free dining may be extended like last year!!! Don't give up!! I'm sure something will turn up for you!!!

George and I had a very long conversation last night going over all our options between the July and Christmas trips. (We even went thru all of the DVC stuff I recently ordered. ) And though it pains me to give up the deluxe option, we're sticking with the Christmas trip and hoping to get lucky with a good promotion or PIN code. Plus, the Christmas trip is twice as long. We prefer the longer stays over the snazzier accomodations.

Thanks Angie!

Thank you and to my trip report! I love taking pictures, as I'm sure you've noticed and have this annoying problem of not being able to summarize all that well.
