Gee, I guess I better get ready to update the first post due to all you resort-changers getting discounts!

Don't forget to make your changes at the Facebook page too if you are on there. I actually like the way she set it up better than the way I did, but I'm not about to try to change things up now, lol.

Oh good grief!!! How in the world can the disney website be working, but not the call center??? I just can't decide if I want to wait and risk missing the discount totally or make a new reservation online and cancel my existing one. Sigh....

I don't think the discount will be gone within a day. Most people don't frequent this or other Disney planning websites and thus won't necessarily be privy to this information so promptly. Most probably won't book the day the discount comes out.

I think POFQ has limited availability for the discounts and when it does, it's pretty small - like 5% off the room (plus the ticket discount)

I just found out that my sister will be able to join our family trip. Which is great, but I made all of our dining ressies for 5 people (not 6). How easy is it to get them changed? It looks like I can't do that online (unless I rebook, and I have BOG so I can't do that), but if I call up is adding an extra person something they can do easily? It's not something that would be a problem, would it? I would guess that most parties of 5 are being seated at tables for 6 anyway?

Its not completely excluded. Its just not that great of a discount. I think you only really save money on the tickets. Maybe 5% or something like that. We tried it the day the Visa promo came out because we love POFQ and the price for our 5 day stay was only about 200 dollars cheaper than what was quoted as a non-promo price, and that was for a standard room too. However I was able to save a considerable amount when I switched to POR. Its basically the same price as what I had for my room at POP.

Booked POR riverview for 4/12-20. Not extremely excited about the location since I've read some ho-hum reviews of alligator bayou where our party of 5 will have to stay. I just keep telling myself that we aren't going to be in our room that much.

Just got through and with a resort switch got the discount applied.

We're now at POR instead of AoA. I'm a bit sad, but in the end, the money won out.

it's so hard..... I can switch us to AKL right now (from AoA) and save us an additional $350 (on top of the $400+ I already saved from the new discount)........... so a DELUXE for LESS money!!! BUT......I think the kids will be underwhelmed by AKL. They won't hate it or complain or anything, I just think they'll be like "eh, whatever" (it would be a standard room, not savanna-view), and I don't want them to be all "eh", I want them to be like "OMG!". I just keep telling myself they're only young once and the time is limited for them to have the "WOW factor" and I think they'll def. get the WOW Factor at AoA.
I think this will be our last stay at a Value. I love the Values for young kids because I like the over-the-top, in-your-face aspect of them. As they get older though, I think they'll appreciate the Mods & Deluxes more with the better pools, and easier access to parks and stuff.

Do your kids like animals??? I mean, I think that WOW factor is there, that they can step outside and see all of the animals....and you'd have the pool slide (if your kids like that)....As much as I want to stay at AoA, I would switch to AKL in a heartbeat! Just sayin...
