Booked CSR this morning and saved about $400 with my Disney Visa. We'll be there the 18th thru 25th. Haven't been to Disney since 2010, so can't wait!

Going to see what happens when the general public offer comes out, but according to Danny's charts, our May trip to POFQ wouldn't go any lower in price Very disappointing. We could switch to POR, but we really wanted to try POFQ for our first on-site experience and it would only save a few hundred and thus we think it might not be worth it. Guess we'll see if that's accurate come January 3rd! Or hoping for a pin code!

That is not true. Some resorts get different rates than others.

Yup, the % rates are "up to... %". Some resorts great discounts while other resorts within the same category have next-to-nothing discounts. I can even depend on the room - I've seen quite a few people on here switch from one room type to another in order to substantially increase their discount.

POFQ is only a 5% discount. I was booked there and was only going to save $200 on my May trip. I was really excited about staying at the French Quarter, but switching to Riverside saved me close to $700. I was a little disappointed to switch, but that $700 covers our airfare... I'm just happy I got some sort of discount!

Same here. I was really looking forward to staying in POFQ, but I figured for another $350 in my pocket I can walk over and see it instead.

yay!! CSR is fantastic!
We are there May 14-22. Did you get standard?
I had preferred booked at rack rate and had to drop to standard to get the discount. :/ We really wanted Casistas, but just happy to get the discount at CSR.

Quite true. That's why I'm debating. I'd personally be happy to save 5% at POFQ like a previous person mentioned and would stay there, but if it's a significant incentive to switch... Gah, decisions decisions! At least we'll get to go regardless though

POFQ is lovely, but I would go with the discounted resort if I were you. 5% off is pretty much rack rate in my books. You can always try for POFQ again another time. Unless, spending the money doesn't bother you, then go for it.

We budget about $500 for airfare. Use a combination of points and cash. Works out fine most of the time.
