Wondering if anyone that has a visa could do the Disney math for me? I can do my. Discount until tomorrow. We are staying at CSR.. We were debating on switching to beach or boardwalk.. But really don't want to spend more than a couple hundred dollars more than what we are paying now. Another option was upgrading to deluxe dining.. We are at CSR for 7 nights with a 5 day hopper and reg. dining. I tried getting a cm to help be today but she said she couldn't pull up any discounts. She did say CSr was 25% off..

I dropped our BOG dinner adr in favor of eating there for a CS lunch. The dinner menu and peoples pics of the food was not doing it for me

I hope the discounts are good enough to allow us to upgrade! Wish I never closed out my Disney Visa its driving me nuts not knowing what the numbers will be

It would have saved me about 250 bucks had I kept our reservation at POP. But because I moved up to a preferred room at POR it cost me about 80 bucks more. I think you could totally move up to a deluxe without spending much more than a couple hundred. The only problem might be your dining. I personally wont do the deluxe dining again. We did it one time and it dang near killed us eating all of that food. It was an appetizer, entree, and desert with EVERY meal. That meant each of us got each one of those things 3 times a day. On top of that we spent most of the time chasing ADR's instead of enjoying the parks. We did the regular dining option the last couple of times and could work with that. Not near as much food. If it were me and I could get the same package but move to a deluxe for not much more than 200, then that is what I would do. I personally wanted to move to a deluxe on the monorail, but since we are also doing the cruise afterwards I decided to just move to a mod.

I have also done deluxe dining before. Back in 2008.. We had never done it before and was way too much because we over scheduled and were basically eating 3 sit downs a day.. We have already made our ressies this time and added some deluxe ressies but not more than 2 in 1 day. It's more for having the ability to eat wherever we want. Although, we would definitely switch to a deluxe resort for only a couple hundred more..

The spring promotion looks good, but no discounts for us since we rented points to stay at BCV.
We are leaving from Sea-Tac a few weeks after you! Got really great prices on airfare, 250 per person but not non stop. I am a little afraid to do the plane rides with a 2 and 5 year old Hoping to get my hands on a Kindle Fire before our trip Hope you have a great trip!

Where were you before? If you don't mind, how much extra or less?

We did the math and we got 25% plus a slight discount on the tix. We are staying 10 nights in a preferred room April15-25 if that helps. It saved almost $700

I have been out of town. Is there a room or package discount for April coming out? Just for Disney Visa holders?

Joining this thread. Husband and I have had to change our dates three times now. First because my mom decided to have her wedding on our fifth anniversary, and we moved it back a week and the. Decided Memorial Day week probably not a good idea. So we moved it to the first week in may. DH found out a co worker already had that week today. So therefore here we are changing it to April, a whole month before our anniversary.

April 20th-27th Wilderness Lodge-first stay not at POR.
