Our dates are 1/16-1/22 and we got the discount so I think that you will be okay with 1/18-1/22. Good luck!!!

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.
I hear ya~
I just stayed in an LM room 2 weeks ago and they said they've been pretty much sold out since they've opened and will continue to be for quite some time. I guess they don't need to offer the discount, they know they will book up the LM rooms anyway. You can look at it that you are getting your wish by staying there, when others can't book, it being sold out, and that they are new and pristine. The rooms are adorable and very nice. I wouldn't mind paying extra for that. I hope you like them!

OK finally got through.

1/18-1/22
4 day hoppers
Standard dining plan
2 adults, 2 kids (11 & 7)
$3501.12 for Poly
or
$2833.76 for Art of Animation Finding Nemo Suite

Still seems like a lot more than we've paid for our past trips! I was hoping for a better discount I guess. I booked the A of A suite for now so we have something. My husband prefers deluxe though, so he probably won't like that choice.

Can someone tell me if this seems right? This is what the website is telling me.

Stay play dine
January 21-26 at the Poly
6 days basic park tickets
2 adults, 1 2-year-old
= $3066

Everything the same, but room only, plus park tickets (just no dining)
= $2159

That means the regular dining plan will cost us $907 for 2 adults for 5 days. That's $90 a day *each*. It doesn't even cost that much normally!

Your quote of $2159 is NOT the normal room price--it includes the 35% off room only discount. If you add dining to it you get $2715 for room, tickets & dining, so for you the room only discount is clearly a better deal than s/p/d. That's because you're only getting a deal on the 2 adults in the room. For deluxe hotels the room only discount beats the s/p/d deal when there aren't as many adults/older kids in the room.

After a LONG time (almost 2 hours) between the 4 times I called this morning (twice got the system out answer, then was making the package changes and call was disconnected ), then finally was able to sort it all out!

I changed my 14-night at Pop with no DP for 11-night at Pop with same tickets and QSDP and it was just $7 more!!!
I'll stay 3 more nights at the off-site hotel where I was staying for the first nights (we're arriving at 11:30pm! needed a place near the airport to crash!) which will add up about $200 more!

The total amount now is $3341.59 for 4 people (3 adults and 1 teen) at Pop century Standard Room with QSDP and 8-Day MYW with PH and WPF&M!!!

My fabulous travel agent just emailed me.
We saved $583.90 with the s/p/d discount!

That's for 2 adults.

That does seem like a lot for AOA. I guess because you have to upgrade to the regular DP and you have the park hopper option.

I would guess that you can get POFQ (or any moderate) on the p/s/d for about $400 less because they include regular dining whereas the value you have to pay to upgrade from the QS. Oor if you took off the park hopper option you could probably get AKL or WL for clost to $2,800 for one of the 35% off rooms as opposed to the p/s/d offer.

DISAPPOINTED!

Looks like the discount is not included on AKL savannah view rooms! We were really hoping to get some sort of discount Staying in the savannah view room has been something I've been looking forward to for years. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Disney will offer some type of discount on our room rates before January. sigh....

Not sure but you might want her to check the room only discount. You might get a better deal.

I got through almost right away this morning but the CM I got was insistant it was Oct 9th and that the discount wasn't avail until the 10th. Once I convinced her it was the 10th it was pretty quick except the reservation took forever but I was off the phone in abuot 45Min

SO I got....
2 adults
POP Standard room
9 - 19th January
10 Park Hoppers and Dining...not the quick service the regular dining.
$2506.00

Pretty happy with that.

Called this morning, for the first time ever! The reservation agent was amazing. Applied the code and saved me $50 total, not the best discount but wanted my hotel so still free money back!

No, didn't try calling. I checked online and AKL specifically says "Standard View". I am working with a travel agent, so I guess it wouldn't hurt to contact her. I don't like being a pest, but I suppose she's used to that and if it can save my family some money for other things at WDW it's worth it. I'll post if I'm successful in getting a discount.
