I know someone else who was on hold for a little over six hours, so it wasn't just me. I'm just glad I'm done.

The Disney Quest vouchers are new for 2013 packages.
For any package or for this discounted package? I've added WPF&M to my tickets in order to do DQ because it was cheaper than paying OOP for the both of us. Should I take it off? We're not doing water parks and going after the discount dates. Thanks!

This isn't my first rodeo with this, but this is the longest I've ever been on hold with anyone. In my entire life. This is ridiculous.

If I have to listen to this loop of hold music one more time, I'm going to pour hot wax in my ears.

ETA: Got through! Saved over $1,300!
I'm so glad you finally got through!! and wasn't it totally worth the torture to save $ 1,300 !!! No really, wasn't it ? Congratulations!!!

Got a note from my agent she was able to apply the discount and brought my trip cost down by $949.60! With the hold times everyone has experienced today I'm glad I went with a Dreams TA and she had to do the waiting. I'm so happy!

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!
That's great! Hopefully the rest of June will will get that joy moment as well!!

So this discount period worked well and there is even a discount on the park passes too with this agency week.
Do you know about how much you saved with tickets? We are staying at BC 6/18-6/22 and from the historical listings it looks like we could possibly get a 30% room discount from Disney for that time. Would switch my reservation if it looked like we get close to the savings.

Disney website down???

Hi All. Is anyone else having trouble accessing the Walt Disney World Resort website? It keeps telling me "Problem loading page...Site may be temporarily unavailable or too busy". I have been trying for over 24 hours now! We will be at Disney from June 17 to June 26th. I know that the discount offers do not extend there yet, but I like to check every day so I do not miss anything. We currently have other accommodations booked (first time off Disney), but if I can get a great discount, I will definitely switch.

I just went on and had no troubles. Maybe try now?

Just tried again a bunch of times and even attempted accessing the site from other places/links...still no go. I can access anything else I want, even the Disney Land site. Not sure what is happening, but if you could access the Disney World site easily it means it is on my end.

I would post a link, but since you are in Canada, I am not sure if it would work (aren't you guys routed to a different site?)

Nonetheless, there are no discounts out yet beyond 6/14/13. I wouldn't expect to see any until March or April, based on past release dates. Keep an eye on this thread as we have all made a pact to post here if we something on another thread!

I have a question...

We are booked at Pop, checking out on Friday (but we have tickets for that day). I am also paying for QSDP, so if I try to add Friday night on, it automatically adds that as well. Can I book Friday night under my husband's name as a seperate reservation and if I do that, do you think that there is any way they would let us just keep the same room? I don't care about dining for that day, we can just pay out of pocket. I'm just thinking we aren't going to want to drive 12 hours after a park day and I really don't want to pack up the room to move to another room for one night.
