Hello everybody took a big chance,I have never visited WDW, our first visit will be on December 10 thru December 15th. Now I got an alert in my email for flights, Philadelphia to Orlando for 90 dollars round trip. That was including taxes. If your looking for the deal it's with AirTran and my week was Monday the 21st thru the 29th. So I booked it now all I need is to find out where we are staying as well as a car rental. We are getting APs so no need to worry about tickets..... Hope someone else takes advantage of this deal! It's kinda of crazy going back to back. We are taking our kids on this trip and not telling anybody lol. We also have a may and september trip. Came to let out some excitement at the only place that won't judge ......DIS

So Excited!!

YAY! When we asked DS12 and DS10 where they want to go on vacation next January, they insisted they want to go back to Disney! DH would have preferred somewhere else just to try something new, but he went along with it, so here we come! I booked the room only discount at All Star Music in a family suite from 1/19-1/26. I CAN'T WAIT!

This will be my 5th trip in 3 years... I am officially obsessed. Three trips with the kids and hubby, and 2 with my sis!

With the discounts officially offered to the public today, I spent about an hour with my excel spreadsheet calculating dining costs based on our ADRs and touring plans, and using them to compare between room only and P/S/D discounts for AoA as well as other resorts. DD and DS have their hearts set on AoA Finding Nemo Suite, so decided to stick with it.

Once I included the dining costs into the total costs, the room-only would have only saved us $190, but the Play/Stay/Dining package with an upgrade to the full Disney Dining Plan (from the quick service plan that comes with value resorts) will save us $500 from our originial pre-discount costs! So, I just booked a new ressie using the P/S/D package. Now I have to cancel the previous reservation to get my $200 deposit back. Very excited!!

I am so bummed out that I didn't receive the free dining code in my email today It would save me about $400 more than the S/P/D promo that i have booked now.

They are totally random. Having an account on the Disney website could help, as is ordering a planning DVD, and building and saving random vacations on there. No one knows why one person gets a PIN (the discount code for a promotion), and another does not. These PINS can also be for a room discount too. You don't get to pick, it just shows up in your email, snail mail or sometimes you have a PIN attached to your name and won't know until you call and ask.

I got the e-mail about free dining, but I'm already booked with the S/P/D. I guess I brushed off the e-mail because I didn't think it would make much difference. I'm gathering maybe I should call and check into it???

Yes, call back. My original quote was the S/P/D package. I got the free dining PIN in my e-mail yesterday and saved another $367.00

We are 99 days today Let the planning begin!
Now, personally, I don't like CR as much as the Poly only b/c I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Poly theming, location, pool, plants, etc. But CR is fun, too. And you just cannot beat walking over to MK. You can just laugh at all of us other folks cramming into those bus/monorail lines to go back to other resorts.

Awesome!! Glad your DH is going along with it, too. Our thoughts are that while the kids are young, we will enjoy WDW.

First trip ever for me, DH, and DS (6).

Jan.4-12 at AKL (thanks to the DIS, without which I would never have known that I could change resorts and apply the new discount to move us from a mod to a deluxe!)

Now gotta go and make me a ticker...

Talking Trip is officially booked!

Family trip, my mom, boyfriend, daughter (10) and myself. booked the family suite at ASMu with the free dining plan pin i got in an email from Disney. Arriving Jan 2, departing Jan 13. Debating booking an airport hotel and flying in on the first to avoid losing a whole day but not sure really of the logistics of our luggage/ check-in time at our resort.

This will be my second time, my moms 4th time and my daughter and BF's 1st visit. So very excited!!! will send pm message to join fb private group
