If you are familar with Bounce Back

I asked this on an existing BB thread, but no response yet, so...

We have never done BB because we just did one yearly trip every June and I thought BB you had to book something within 6 months or so and couldn't do the 2nd stay a year out.

We (myself, DH and DS) may go in June 2015.

Then we want to go back in Aug. 2015 and bring with us my DD and her husband.

When we are there in June, and if we have a BB offer, can I book 2 rooms? What are the discounts? Is there a certain time when BB info will come out for 2015? And is there any other info. that would be helpful, like I said I have no experience with this? Thanks

I will answer what I can.

You can book 2 rooms with a Bounce Back discount. However, it is one room per person, so you would have to book one room, and your husband would have to book the other room. And then you would have to remain as the leads on both reservations. So your key and magicband would be tied to one room, your husband's to the other.

So maybe list the girls in one room, the boys in the other, and then just sleep how you want to sleep. It will be tricky too if you want to charge back to your room. I think your husband and your son in law could trade wrist bands, but they would have to trade them for everything.

Yes, you would be able to book a BB for August. 2015 if you were there in June of 2015 if current practices remain.

Typically, a bounce back offer for a room discount is only for the current year. So if you are staying at a WDW resort in June your BB would only be good for that same year. The BB for the next year typically comes out in November and December. We were at the WL in Dec and booked a BB for this upcoming October.

Now, if you were there in late summer and early fall, you might get offered the free dining BB. That BB would be for the next year, typically limited to dates in the second part of August and September.

That is what Disney has done in the past. It could change in the future.

Someone who goes in January 2015 (or earlier) should be able to tell you what the BB offer will be. I found the offer and dates available here on the DIS before I went on my May trip, so I knew what days I wanted to book. The 2014 BB was not available between August 3 and 16th -

Dh and I went in September and booked BB for the next year when DS & DDIL were going to come with us. The rooms have to be booked by an adult that is currently there. We booked one room in my name and DDIL and the other room in DH name and DS. We had to pay the $200 for each room. A few months out I called and change the names on the reservations. DH and me in one room and DDIL & DS in the other room.

Another question, we would need to go back first week of Aug, does the whole trip have to fall within the dates to get the discount or just the first date of your trip? Say for instance (going by this year's dates) if I booked my trip starting on Aug 2 for 5 nights, would the discount be for the entire trip or just on Aug 2. I hope my question makes sense.

Oh and georgina thanks for the dates, kind of gives me an idea of what might be available for next year.

If the discount is for FD, then you would get FD for the whole trip. If it's a room discount, you would only get the discount for 8/2, with the other nights being at rack rate. FD carries through for the entire time as long as you check in by the last day of the promo, but room discounts are date specific and will only be applied to the nights included in the offer.

It has to be those exact dates. The only sort of discount that extends out over dates not included is Free Dining.
