You can book it now and apply a code later if you need to.

If your last night is Friday, Jan 11th, that is considered a weekend nght, so it is more...but Sunday is NOT considered a weekend night so it would be the lesser rate.

If you're OK paying the rack rate, you probably should book now to make sure you have the room you want. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as "applying a discount" if one comes out. The room type has to be available for your dates at that special rate in order to change the reservation. From what I can tell, not all the discount codes are being offered for AoA.

I'm also hoping and waiting for a discount in December, but we're OK with paying rack rate if that's what it takes to stay there then.

Awesome! I hope it won't be too crowded, but I know it will be worth it! I'm loving that AoA has their own buses!

But that gives you no advantage in getting you a discount room. All it does is guarantee a room at full price in the absence of a discount.

Hannah, Disney's Marathon Weekend for 2013 begins Jan 10th.

1/10/2013 - 1/13/2013

Probably the reason for the cost increase!

Yup. I looked up the dates and saw that that was the reason. I think I'll go the 6th-10th.

First I want to say how good it is to be back on here with all of you good people. I haven't been able to get onto this site since last week because every time I tried to log on my computer blocked my access saying that the site was risky because of some type of 'danger'. Did anyone else run into this? I didn't know if there were hackers causing trouble or what. Today, as usual, I tried again and this time I was able to get on. Does this happen often? It has happened to me once before, but just for a day or two, never for as long as it was this time. I kept thinking about all of you and what I may be missing regarding the AoA!!!!!

Thanks for sharing this tip! I'm going to try it; you never know and it may just work.

You can see Triton here.
Thanks so much for your vote of confidence Cinder, but I'm not too well versed on PC techniques yet. Thank you for posting that wonderful link. That's the first good looks I've had of the LM and LK sections so far. I really hope that your move goes as smoothly as possible. Best of luck to you and your family.

Good for you, Jen! You have some serious photos to take, huh? I love photography also, and I love the opportunities that we can find in WDW. My little PAS camera does good considering it's not a big one with lenses and such. My GF has one of them that her DH bought her and she is taking it with us, but I often get photos that are better than hers, except for the night parades.

Boy it's good to be back on the boards again.

Yup, and we are there to run! DH is running mararathon, I'll run the 5k, and DS (7) will run Micky Mike and 400m. AoA, here we come! Booked Nemo, looking forward to seeing everything and checking out the amazing food options! Can't wait to try the naan and tandoori choices. We're all adventurous (and healthy) eaters, and we are PSYCHED that WDW is finally moving in that direction! Yahoo!

Correct. The poster didn't say they had to have a code, just that they were "kind of waiting to see what deals, if any, are coming." Rather than wait for a code and lose a room, I would book it now. Unless of course I wasn't willing to pay rack rate!

Yes! Same thing happened to me for a few days. I couldn't understand it. This was the only site that I come to that was giving me the virus scare. Then it went away?

I was looking for a room October 25-27 LM and found no availability for the last 2 days. This morning I looked and was able to book my nights.

No toaster. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator with a tiny freezer section, coffee maker, small sink, and a microwave oven.
