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.
Mind if I ask you to tell me if I did my math right here:

2 adults Jan 9-19, looking at Pop and PORS right now.

Child 7-day ticket: 287.55
Dining plan: 17.16
Per person total: 334.71

334.71 * 2 = 672.42 plus room?

I can't seem to get a non SPD room check anymore. All links are leading to that package offer so I can't check my room rack rates currently for Pop and PORS.

On hold now for 57 minutes and counting...wondering if I should just book 2 new rooms online and then link them and cancel my old reservations later on when the call volume drops. Sorry to be so crabby.

Ones a package so yes, 2 ressies needed.

And I'm disappointed by the issues they are having, because I'm calling from Singapore and we're 12 hours ahead of you guys -- so if I have to wait until 11 or 12, it's going to be midnight here! Yawn!
For two adults, POP standard, upgrade to reg. dining plan 6 nights with 2 day tickets, it was a little over a hundred dollars more than the Visa offer. Cm was great and put me on hold for a while twice to make sure.

POP Century Jan 5-13 2 adults and 1 Child (11) Regular dinning plan 7 day park hoppers \$2653.11 We didn't have dinning on there before and it was 2065.00. I double checked online (the jan-mar discount page) and it matched. She tried to give me the room only discount. It was 200.00 or so cheaper but I needed dinning. Then she quoted me the regular price for dinning. Then she realized it and told me to hold on, came back with that quote. Said they were still figuring out all the new discounts. __________________ November 8-15, 2014 Port Orleans - French Quarter! January 5-13, 2013 POP Century Resort! Our First Trip!

DBF loves his food and we have dining reservations with the hopes of FD. Th S/P/D option for PORS came to 3172.06 so it just was not on the table for us. We would be willing to do a split stay since the first few days we won't even need our DDP, so a RO would work for us, but we'd prefer to be at a Mod for the last week of our stay.
There are free dining pins out there for 2013??? If so, I want one

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

Thank god the spd was released online! I was able to do my own math and I was right! I called instantly, all this time they booked me with non expiration tix which sky rocketed my cost!

People if your numbers don't match, check the ressie online :/

It was Free Quick service only but I could upgrade to the reg DDP for upgrade cost but couldn't get a mod resort. I'm not sure if I'm going to call back later and see if I can move to PORS or another mod. I'm glad I asked if I had a pin though. I wonder if DBF has one.

We're coming in for the marathon 1/12-18 and I've tried every which way to apply some sort of discount to our stay (even switching the first couple nights around the race to POR) and no dice. I know our room type is sold out and I should be thankful we got it, since we'd been talking about staying there since they were announced, but it still burns a little to know that basically everyone else is getting a discount while we're stuck with the rack rate! And, /rant.
 10-10-2012, 11:25 AM #1317 whiporee Earning My Ears   Join Date: Aug 2012 Posts: 47 RO saved \$1200 I modified my original reservation after 90 minutes on hold. The discount off two room at the Poly for three nights was \$1200, but I used it to buy 10 park tickets, so the net discount was only about \$200 (plus I got park admission for five!) Can't complain about that -- worth the time on hold. Thanks to everyone who let me know it was going on!!

I had booked LM back in May for race weekend as soon as I could because I really really wanted it. I just changed it now to Pop because I couldn't argue with over 400\$ savings even after I added a day due to cheaper flights the day before we had booked. I really want a LM room but I just can't say it's worth 400\$ to me right now when I'm coming back down in Feb for the Princess.

We're booked at POR garden view from 1/18-1/27, and our total for the stay using the RO discount is \$1301.74. That comes out to a 30% discount off each night of the reservation. The room rates are higher for MLK weekend, but the discount rate was the same...at least in the case of POR. I think you've got a good shot!
