Let us know how it works for you.

I'm just glad that AoA Family Suites were included ... albeit only 5% better than a AAA rate, but at least it's something.

Thanks! We're currently booked for AoA Family Suite as well so we'll take whatever we can if and when the discounts become available.

That's what I was reading from other threads on DIS as well - that there are two VISA offers, one for room-only and one for what DISers are calling stay/play/dine package discount.

I've also read a couple of posts reporting back that CMs are telling them Free Dining will also become available to the public on the 10th - but they could be confusing Free Dining with the Stay/Play/Dine Package discount. We shall see

It was a great deal for us. Almost free dining.

10 nights
POR-Royal Room
DDP
8 day Hoppers
4 Adults

Before $6356 after applying Stay Eat Play discount $4563

$1793 savings .... $44.82 per person per day (almost free dining)

So I don't see how this is not a good deal??

I have 2 rooms at POR one has 2 adults and 3 children the other room is 4 adults....the savings for the 4 adults room was around $1800 while the savings for the room with kids was $900...so I'd have to say the discount is on the adult portion...

Yes, it sounds like POR and POFQ have great savings. We thought about switching...

Since I am doing AoA, the savings are just not there but that makes sense since it is the new resort. The discount was only 15% when AAA is already 10%. Also we don't need tickets since we have DVC AP. however we are so excited about trying the new resort, ESP after touring it in July.

So glad you all are getting great deals!
