Those of you that don't have a pin, have you considered renting dvc points? We did that last year and it worked out really well for us...just a thought Of course, I would hold out a while longer to see what public discounts are released first!

We did too - there was a VERY small window to book - we arrived the Sat of Memorial Day weekend and had Free Dining for our 10 day stay.

We have considered renting points the last 2 trips - the problem is "timing" - by the time Disney releases any discounts or specials for our travel dates, the majority of the DVC rentals are gone..or at least the ones that we would enjoy staying at. BUT I am seriously considering NOT playing the *Waiting for A Disney Deal* game for our next trip and just renting the points.

well Mayers I think I might be ditching you If we can't get a good cruise rate for May we are going to move our trip to November 2013. I'm sad we'll be waiting longer but we decided to do a cruise and shorter WDW trip but it's still $$$ and we could use the extra time to save some $$

haven't cancelled May yet though just in case something awesome comes along and we can't pass it up but it's looking like it's going to be November. It works out though since we'd be cruising for our anniversary and my birthday yippee!!

Normally I always hold out for a deal, but with my kids being older (and thus harder to take out of school any time of year) and dance being such a big part of our weekly schedule, this week is pretty much it without getting into higher priced spring break/summer weeks. We like to go in January (too hard with dance) or free dining in September (now too hard with school) but that's just not in the cards.

We are going no matter what

We plan to book our May 22-28 vacation in 2 weeks, right before the 180 day for ADRs. I'm crossing my fingers (and toes) for some kind of a deal to come out before then. Or better yet for Disney to bestow a PIN on me. But if nothing becomes available we'll be booking anyways so that we can take advantage of the 180+ ADRs!

I ended up booking on Friday night at full price just to do my ADRs this weekend at 180+10. Still holding out for a pin for mom or I, a visa offer, or a public offer.

Booking a kid free surprise anniversary trip for me and DH. We will be staying the 23rd - 27th. Its just for the weekend. Can't believe the 180 mark will be soon. I still have no idea what restautrants to eat at. I know for sure we will do coral reef. Hubby loves seafood and the atmoosphere of the place. Really hope a discount comes cause it will be our first time on property and doing a mod. too. Staying at CBR in a pirate room for my big kid at heart.

I really wish Disney would release something soon. I got a pin code from Universal the other day. We have AP's for Universal so we may end up there instead.

Joining in just decided today to move our January trip to may ( long story) just need to change everything... Excited, our stay in may 2011 was awesome (hot) and we had free dining - hoping for free QSDP at least.

Oooh that sounds fun! I would love to do an adults only trip at some point too, but right now we are able to do one trip a year and so dd(almost 5) is with us! Our 180 days is on Sunday, I have a spreadsheet with our hopeful-ADR's all planned out! ha

Can someone remind me of the ADR rule if you do NOT have a room reservation yet??

I know if you do and are staying onsite it's 180.......but not sure the rest.

The way I understand it, anyone can get ADRs at the 180 mark. But if you have an onsite ressie, you can also book ADRs for up to 10 days of a stay.

No ressie means you have to call each day to get an ADR for each day of your stay. You can only book an ADR at the 180 mark for each day.

Hope that makes sense, I didn't explain it well....crying 1 year old is distracting me :-P

fanoftiger Thanks so much!!! That makes complete sense. My old brain was not working (big shock there!), and I just couldn't for the life of me remember what the rule was.

thanks again,
Missy

P.S. Enjoy the 1 year old......they grow up so fast.

That's how I understand it. With a room ressie, you can book 180+ 10 days. Without, you can book only do the 180 days out. So you would be calling/booking online several different days if you have a multiple day trip.
