I waited since everyone was having issues this Morning, and then had to go to parents Day with my son, so started calling about 10:15 (11:15 FL time). A few "all circuits are busy" messages, then finally it thru after waiting about 5 minutes or less. 3 adults, 2 kids (one is 10), preferred room at POR, 9day base tickets, DDP. Saved about $1600!!! So we're basically paying a little over $400 for the dining plan for 5 people for 8 nights. Woohoo!!!!!! So excited. And it was about $250 less than when I tried to figure it out at the kids prices, so I was thrilled!!!!

My CM was awesome, I wish I could remember her name. She said she had NO idea what type of discounts it was giving, they had no name for it. She said it comes up on her screen as regular room rate and discounted components. Weird! But I'll take it!!!

Holy cow! My travel agent got us a discount of $105.21 on a 5 night stay. Not a huge discount, but that will pay for our Jiko dinner!

Thanks fla4fun for the suggestion!!!! And good luck to everyone else on their discounts!

I was finally able to get back in touch with a person a little after 12:45 today and they applied the discount so we got a pretty good discount vs. rack package rates. We are paying about $500 more then we would if there was free dining but I will take it. Thanks for all the help!

I had previously booked POR standard room for Jan. 10-14 (marathon weekend). Called exactly at 7am this morning and they were having all kinds of problems. Could not find my resi, name or anything. Was told I should call back later, but he would mark my whatever and I would get the discount. I was out of the house for several hours, but when I got home I did receive a call from Disney. The nice lady told me that the only discounted rooms they had were only for the Royal garden view rooms. She said the room I had reserved did not have any discounts for it. Actually, none of the cheaper rooms had the discount for that time frame. I can't go with a Royal room because my 8 year old son would kill me. Not sure what to do because POR is not worth rack rate prices. Did anyone else not get a discount on cheaper already booked rooms?

The room I had booked was not included in today's advertised discount rates either; however, I got a small discount on my AKL savannah view room using a Disney travel agent. I contacted her and she was able to find a discount for us. I don't know if you're using a TA, but if you are staying for 3 nights or longer you can use a Disney TA and pay no commission fees! This might be an option for you to consider. Good luck!

We got a preferred (non royal) room but they had garden rooms and i think water view when I called earlier.

You may want to just call back and verify the info you have. I know a lot of people on here, myself included, were consistently told different things by the CMs, so before changing things it may not hurt to just try someone different.

I will save $1094 with RO discount
I would save $ 979 with S/P/D.
It is fairly close, but we are not big eaters/never eat dessert. DDP not good deal for us. Past experience says we will beat DDP cost by $200, even with TS each day. So I am going RO. If we could maximize the DDP, it would probably be worth going with the S/P/D.

January 2-7, 2013
GF-LV


Full Price

$3125 Lagoon View
$1184 Tickets
$1112 Dining

$5421 Total Full Price

S/P/D

Dining 4 adults 5 nights
6 day base tickets 4 adults

$4442 S/P/D Saves us $979

Same Deal RO
From $3125 to $2031 (35% Off) RO 5 nights Saves us $1094



We are staying New Year's Day at POR since it was $933 with tax for our GFLV room New Year's Day! $274.50 for New Year's Day at POR. That is all my gas for the 3000 mile roundtrip in my Suburban!

We are staying 5 nights with a Savannah room as well. When I booked with the discount we saved almost $400! Did you price out the p/s/d offer and the RO offer?

There is a RO offer for AKL savannah but it's only 5%. However, with the p/s/d we were able to save more.

We have the DDP though so the p/s/d may have saved us more with that plan? If you want to PM me I can give you our exact details if you want to compare.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that Disney will offer some type of discount on our room rates before January. sigh....
Just priced out some resorts for my dates, and I'm able to book AKL Savannah view (both accessible and not)
But maybe Disney exclude the savannah view for some dates?
I get a quote of $3530 - 5 nights (1/2-1/7), 6 days, 4 adults and reg dining plan...

On our dates (Jan 29-Feb 6), the discount is available for all categories of rooms at POR except the standard rooms. It might have to do with the fact that it is marathon weekend.
