Ugh I wish they'd release a code that includes ALL of June! We are bound by the dates MD lets the kids out of school, esp now that DD11 is in middle school. Our dates are June 23-30.

We don't have anything except our flights booked right now. I even was looking at some offsite hotels just to see what they cost but I want the convenience of Disney transportation and to be immersed in Disney 24/7 for MY and DD11's very 1st (finally) visit.

FYI, if anyone is interested in YES tickets, they are open for summer dates! I just looked into those but it's only a $185 savings - I'm going to bank on a good discount coming out....I hope!

I received another one of those game board mailings yesterday from Disney for a resort offer. It lists a rate of $836 (double adult occupancy; standard room) for select value resorts for a 6 night/7 day package with accommodations and theme park tickets. It's for the entire month of June. I don't know if its actually a deal, but I'd thought I would let people know anyway. The URL for the offer is disneyworld.com/stayandplay

I just went out to price this using the URL and it looks like it's basically full price. We booked using the Disney visa discount that is now out for GP, so I wanted to see if this was a better deal. The quote came out to be exactly what our original price was before the Visa discount.

I don't know why they send people these "deals" in the mail, when they're not a deal at all.

It sounds like a deal because I was trying to put together a list of the "rack rates" for everything but I think it requires kids between 3-9 and mine is 11, will be 12 when we go. So no deal for us. Big fat bummer!

Whoops, not a deal at all. I just tried with a child that age and no deal, rack rates only.

That's what I thought. I tried with a moderate hotel and it came to the exact same price I've been quoted before. It's a shame.

That's what we found too... our DD is 7, so if there was a discount it should have "clicked" or something, but it didn't.

The discount through June 14 is live today though..... have you been out to the site yet? It is exactly the discount that was the Disney Visa Cardholder discount last week. It saved us $ 909, so I'm THRILLED with that! If you go to the bottom of the screen, click on "special offers" and then you can use that link to price out the trip w/ that discount.

In the exact same boat for June 23-29. I've already booked because we're going regardless, but I really hope they'll release a discount.

I have and have always been told no. I even have had them check my DH name and email address.

I have been feeling the same way this morning. I think part of my DSs having to go back to school today. That meant no more sleeping until 11 AM, and I didn't sleep more than 30 minutes at a time last night.

Luckily, I finally was able to get the discount added to our reservation. I was even able to keep the CR /w TPV. I thought about changing to the Beach Club Villas, since it would have been $200 for a one bedroom. I just felt bad about the DSs being on a fold out couch. Plus $200 more for my dream view isn't too much more.

Congrats on keeping TPV!!! We had that a few years ago and it was AMAZING!!

SCORE! I used the "Spring Discount" that was released today (thanks to whoever posted that on here to give me the heads up to look today!).

OKW 2 Bedroom Villa, 30% off with discount on tickets as well (saved like $60 on tickets!).

I know this discount doesn't help the second half of June goers, but I just had to share my happy happy joy joy moment!
