What do you mean by calling for a "pin"? We expect to visit again in June of 2013 (probably the 3rd through the 8th) and I was waiting for them to announce the discounts before I booked. Is there something more i can do besides sit and wait? Is a "pin" a discount separate from the ones they announce a few months in advance? Thanks!

You can call their reservations line and ask if there are any pins associated with your name and if there are, they can apply it to a reservation. They didn't have one in my name, but there was a pin in dh's name. I would imagine you could ask about your kid's names too (if you have any), though I'm not sure on that one.

I agree with pp that it appears Disney is scaling back on discounts; and it appears they are becoming more selective about what they do offer as indicated by them waiting until October to release a general public offer for Jan-early March. My issue is that I am not good at playing the waiting game. I like to have my trip booked and budget figured out at least 9 months out, especially for a big trip like WDW. I know this is a big year for WDW with the opening of a new resort hotel and FL expansion; but unfortunately for my family of six the price has to be right and we have to be able to really plan ahead to make trips like this happen. So unless something comes out within the next month or two, we may have to look elsewhere...
Hopefully, you won't have to look elsewhere and WDW will be kind and release discounts soon! Wishful thinking

My wife called on the weekend because we had to move our trip by one day and we didn't have any pins . We'll be checking again when we book some of our dining reservations in a few weeks.

My mom got a pin in the mail today for the offer some others have gotten (up to 35% off RO through 9/28/13 or FD through 3/7/13). I haven't received anything but I finally got an email from Disney Destinations today. That was the first in a few months so maybe I'll start getting pins again, too. :fingers crossed.

I got the same thing. When I saw "Disney Destinations", I got all exciting thinking that possibly I got a pin code. I guess I should have known better.

Same here. I was so excited until I realized there wasn't a pin code. Oh well.

At least you guys are getting emails from Disney Destinations!
I have never once received an email, even a general one, from them.

I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed for a GP promotion.
