I just received a message from my TA. The only Value resort that even has a room available with an AAA discount for my time frame (Oct 20-24) is the All Star Movies. Preferred rooms only. And the discount is only 10% at that. Pittiful.

I just booked two rooms for July of next year with an AAA discount (10%). I went through a travel agent. I'm still hoping for a pin code or GP discount though!

OK, this is sort of OT, and I don't know if it applies at Disney resorts...

I worked for years in large hotel chains. We offered the AAA discount, which was 20% off the rack rate- the standard highest rate for the room. We also offered all kinds of other discounts, many of which were much, much better.

As an example, at one hotel, the AAA rate was 20% off $320.00 a night. $256.00: a good deal, right? Nope... for the same night, we had a weekend special that got you the room for $59.00, AND you got a full breakfast. I can remember people calling and DEMANDING the AAA rate, and refusing to listen to anything else. I was once told that we were REQUIRED to give the AAA rate, and the lady insisted on it. She got it.

My point is, you should always look at all of your options: and Disney has lots. Not necessarily Disney advice, but always ask for the best deal.
I'd love to have a countdown banner, but I go too much to keep up with it.

Can you use the AAA rate for the room portion, but still have it as a package with tickets?

Yes, but this cannot be booked through Disney or another travel agent. You must go through AAA for a package with the AAA room discount.
