I looked up the discounts from last year, and it looks like there were June room discounts announced in the beginning of November. Then they ran them again in Jan / Feb. I'm hoping that it will be Oct / Nov this year....

If you go onto Disney's website, the current discounts through December 2012 end on Sept 29. So maybe they'll start putting out the 2013 discounts at that time. Here's hoping!
Ah ok, maybe I was looking at the wrong thing. Knowing me, that's highly possible. We were going to try and wait until we know for sure when the last day of school will be but now I'm not too sure. Our school systems builds 4 days into the year for snow, emg closings, etc and will release the last day of school around March. Last year the kids got off two days early and the year before I think it was 3 days early. I'd like to go the week of June 15th vs June 22nd because I think the crowds will be ever so much lighter but I guess in the grand scheme of things it really doesn't matter. As it is now, the last day of school is June 19th.

On that note, what happens if I book with a discount or pin but then need to change my dates at the end of March? Will I get to keep the existing discount I have? Let's dream and say they come out with a 30% off or free dining pin, as long as my dates fall within that pin I should be able to keep that discount, right?

As long as you booked something before the pin expired, then yes, you can switch to something else later (within the offered dates). But subject to resort availability etc.

Received an email for a Disney Survey from our last WDW trip in January, hope that means I am on their radar for a pin!

I checked through the June 2012 code thread and it looks like pins came out beginning in Jan/Feb.

Couple of more questions -

The emails you get with the pins....Who are they from? Disney Insider? I don't get many disney emails at all.

Second, what is the best disney guide book out there?

previous ones came from Disney Destinations. It has been awhile since I have gotten one though. I am tickling the WDW website to see if the helps.

There are a number of guide books. I have read several. If you search the Theme Park Strategy forum you should find numerous threads.

My inputs (which you might find in those threads)

Unofficial Guide - the most comprehensive guide out there. I have used it for things like picking my rental car company in Orlando. You get the normal restaurant and resort reviews but there are some sections you won't find in other books. The one I reference probably the most is the travel time between WDW locations; parks, resorts, etc. You used to get perks for owning the books (site access) but now you have to pay for these. They have touring plans, crowd estimates a fast pass and wait time app, etc

Passporters has a lot of touring information. To me it is best for carrying your planning with you. It has great maps, sheets for itineraries and reservation numbers, pockets for holding items and other features.

Passporter and UG both have updates to their books on their sites. These often go to print in August/September and Disney changes things often.

Complete Guide to WDW is a smaller guide I like. It has the normal ride/resort/restaurant reviews. It has great pictures. (The UG has a companion book that is mainly pictures and costs as much as the Complete Guide.) My favorite part is the ride detail and the interesting things to see in the parks. Their description of Haunted Mansion is almost overwhelming. I read little sections before each time.

I'm not a fan of Birnbaum. There are some.

The Hidden Magic author has a new guide book that I haven't seen.

Some libraries have copies. You can take a couple for a test drive before buying.
