And this is the reason I'll book everything myself and wait (or pray) for discounts from Disney. As far as I'm concerned, this just goes to prove my point that TAs can't be trusted and don't really do what is in the client's best interest. NOT ALL TAs.....just the ones that I've had experience with. I just prefer to be in control of my ressies myself and I'll just deal with whatever discounts Disney does or does not release.

If worst comes to worst: we stay off-site if free dining isn't offered and we still have a great vacation.
Well, it would not be in the TA's best interest at all to purposefully deceive a client, so it could be that this was an unintentional mistake by the TA. Did you write back and ask them how WL was possible when you have 5 in your party?

Yes, I did and what he wrote back didn't give me the warm and fuzzies either. lol He said that he saw three kids and thought that the youngest was three. However, on the quote it had my three kids and their ages at the time of travel. So......no, not happy with the TA. Definitely won't be using him/them in this instance and just reinforced my choice to plan and book myself.

Best rates possible now

So, are there ANY deals offered right now for early October? Figure we should get something held and then consider upgrading/changing if a better deal comes along.

Nothing out now, but if you are a AAA member, you might be able to get a small room discount.

To get the AAA discount, do you have to book through AAA? I don't want to have to go through a TA, would rather do it myself.

You can do room only and get a AAA discount through Disney but if you want a package you have to book that through AAA.

Smile Disney World October 2013!


I am planning our first family vacation to Disney World for this October - dates aren't set and I am waiting to see about discounts and school schedules. It is a little intimidating the amount of info there is to read! I will definitely be watching this thread/site for good info/discounts!

Don't be intimidated. Just ask any questions you need answers to....that's why we're all here (oh, that and to drool over our vacations!). Planning is half the battle....at least you are aware you need to plan. You wouldn't believe the amount of people who just show up at WDW with no plan and then get upset when they don't have "the most magical time".

AAA Discount

Has anyone called about the AAA Discount? I just called and was told it was 15% was given a total price for 7 nights of $3667.21 for a Std Room at the Poly

When I price out a room only for the same 7 nights online I get $3638 ......Less than the amount the CM quoted me with the 15% discount ?

I have a 15% AAA RO discount - booked it like last August just to "hold" a room in case nothing better comes along. I priced it out online BEFORE calling to make sure the discount came in lower. Make sure you check availability of the AAA discount down to the room category you are booking - CM I talked to said that not he'd have to check availability on the specific category (we booked WV). In your case, I would call back again and make sure the discount was applied. Then pray something better comes out later this summer like me!

I did not book it today just called mainly to see what the AAA Discount was. I will have to call back, I am thinking maybe even though the CM said that was the amount for the Std. room perhaps it was for another category or maybe she keyed in the wrong number in my party, I told her 2 but if she keyed in more that could explain the difference.

Just checking in to see if there is anything new but it doesn't seem like it.

The waiting game continues.
