What are the chances of another discount being released?

Hmmm, I think it's book by March, cutting it close!!

I just heard that the Nemo rooms were excluded from the Spring promotion? Is that true? My daughter is so set on Nemo, but to save $400 I might need to try Lion King......anyone have an opinion? I mean $400 isn't that much overall. Gosh, we can stay in a villa with the discount for the same price, but with 5 of us, the suite seemed so nice!!

theyre not outright excluded because i' m in one. i think certain weeks they probably have booked their quota of discounted rooms so arent included those weeks. i bet only the busiest weeks like march to easter weeks.

Yeah, we are booked in one from 15-21 and we were told we had to switch to a LK or CARS room to get the discount

ok - here is my question more specifically (just posted this in the resorts forum). What do you think? I am so torn, we need to add a night because it was SO much cheaper to fly out a day later. We were going to stay at POP for that one night...but if we save $$ we might not need to and can stay at AoA. Ugh, what to do!!

Here is what I posted:
So....turns out there are no rooms available in the Nemo section at AoA for our dates with the Spring promotion. This trip is for my daughters 5th birthday and she specifically chose the Nemo room. Now, being she is 4 (almost 5!) I am sure I can easily "sway" her through some choice wording to the Lion King rooms, but I am not sure if it's worth it! What do you think the chances are of a Nemo room opening up? Should I switch now to a Lion King room and save $400?

I must say, when I booked this trip (In August) I was SURE a promotion would open up and now realizing we might be paying the full price we booked at, I am a little bummed!

ive heard they only put out a small # of rooms for the visa people so if thats the case then some nemo rooms should be available on the 3rd

i cant stop thinking how looooong january- march is going to be. i really wish february wasnt so crowded, then we could be going during feb. vacation, but i' m not willing to endure those crowds, so its always going to be april.........except maybe when the kids are a little older and i can leave DH behind so we' re not tied to school vacations.
