Got through early this am...CSR Feb 26 - Mar 6, 2 adults & 2 kids, DDP and preferred room for $3767...saved a little over $570 with the s/p/d! Tried to call back to ask one more question and was on hold for over an hour...gave up!
Asked CM about RO discount and she said the s/p/d was a better deal...but now I'm wondering if I could have saved more...guess I'll call back later when the action dies down! Good luck to everyone waiting!!!

Well, I called this morning...changed my January rack-rate magic your way reservation to a discounted room only only reservation. (We had purchased AP's between the time I made the original reservation, so we no longer need tickets). Once you factor out the no-longer needed tickets, I suspect I saved a good 1500 clams.


Also, just an FYI for people. The CM I spoke to had said that she doesn't see any more free-dining deals coming down the pike and suggested that Disney Travel is getting rid of free-dining as an incentive. Instead, there will be discounts on the dining plan.....but no more free dining.

I only saved about $560. I am also wondering if I could have gotten a better deal but I was too concerned with losing the call, or the whole system exploding so when she told me the deal I took it. It's still cheaper than I expected it to be but I'm seeing posts with savings of $1000! I guess since it's two adults only on my reservation I didn't save as much as a family would have.

"We're sorry, all circuits are busy. Please try your call again later."

Sigh...

You're right, the savings are much more when you have older kids. If you'd like to save more I'm happy to send my kids with you... (I'd miss my kids, but I've never been to Disney with just my husband and that sounds like fun!)

I figured out that the Kid dining plan was $17.16 per day (vs $55.59 per adult) and used the kid ticket price from the Disney website (after the tax was added) and ran the figures as if everyone in our party was a child plus I added on the cost of a room only reservation to figure out what my cost should be with the s/p/d promotion - if I can ever get through again!!!

Your savings seems low.

POFQ is a moderate, so you could choose to take 30% off RO instead of s/p/d. Taking 30% off the room rate, you'd save about $330 on garden view and $360 on river view.

S/p/d is the same formula for moderate as deluxe, so your savings should be more in the $72 per night range over the non-discounted prices, not $142 for the entire trip. You can calculate the s/p/d discount by calculating the difference in the dining ($55-17+99-55)*4 persons plus $2 * 4 persons for the ticket difference per day. So, your 5 night trip should have a total discount under s/p/d of about $370.

All calculations I show are rounded to the next lowest dollar. Expect Disney not to round, so the prices could vary by $20-30.

The two discounts are pretty much equivilent, based upon your dates and number of guests. But, they're still a lot more than $142 off list. They ARE about $142 off list if you previously had a AAA discounted room rate.

Thanks for linking this. It's really helping me to see the numbers and crunch them myself:

I had a PIN for free QSDP (upgraded to DDP) at Pop so for our stay it still saves us almost 200 over the SPD option, though I can't seem to get a mod with that PIN .

We got it!

My boyfriend has been calling all morning (as the vaca is booked in his name) and I've been gchatting him as we are both at work.

I told him to use Q69 and the CM kept telling him that saved up like $75, which we knew wasn't right for either RO or s/p/d so he told her to keep trying. Finally she said that she couldn't apply the s/p/d to our reservations because we booked them so long ago (July). I again told him to tell her no or to ask for someone else. We eventally had to rebook our trip but we got everything thing the same, so who cares! Here are the details:

King Room at POFQ Jan 7-14
2 adults
Regular dining plan
6 day park hopper
Original: $3620
With s/p/d: $2905

That's $715 saved! We are so psyched! Sending you all lots of pixie dust and best wishes- don't lose hope!

For anyone who has aleady booked a package with Run Disney, like I did, this RO discount does apply to us! I just got off the phone with a lovely CM at Run Disney and she explained that they typically have lower rates with the Marathon Package but this particular RO offer would be a better choice for me. I bought the Run Disney PKG for 2 adults w/ Dining Plan at AKL (Savannah view) originally so she priced it out with another CM and they told me that if I rebook through Disney Travel then I would save a little over $300.
The only thing is, I am now missing out on the mysterious "free gift" from Run Disney. Something tells me it doesn't have a retail value of $300 though, so I don't think I am missing out on much!

I booked 1/16-1/21 and saved about $700. CM said the I got the biggest discount on my first 2 nights, last 3 nights not so much. It's worth a shot.
