CM on the phone just yesterday when I asked about a PIN told me to check back later this summer when October deals are typically released (meaning they probably don't know anything yet). I am not giving up hope on a better promo or FD. Nope. "Even miracles take a little time..." - Cinderella

You need to remember we are on a planning forum with lots of planers. We are a very small percentage of Disney guests. Many people book last minute or book because a special comes out. Just because some of us have our rooms reserved does not mean there will be no discounts. There are many many rooms at WDW!!!! Some cms say no free dining others say watch for the public fd. Really they know no more than we do.

Also, everyone was saying there would be NO FREE DINING AT ALL this year. And, that turned out to be wrong. I'm going to keep hoping.

Me too! I just don't get the obsession with free dining. I don't even like the dining plan. 35% off at a deluxe would save me way more than I would spend on food. Here's hoping!

I think I might die of a heart attack waiting for an October discount!

Me too! We have no interest in free dining when F&W is going on. We just bought APs yesterday so come on AP discount!

That's a good point. F&W is why I am going in October. Who would want the dining plan when we can graze around World Showcase?

Hoping for AP discount too!

The way I was looking at it is we wouldn't always be eating at Epcot, so even the QS plan (we're staying value) would save us a little. Plus the F&W booths have taken snack credits for a lot of items in previous years. Of course, a largely discounted resort stay would be the better deal in a lot of situations. I'm all for whatever discount makes the most sense.

I'm new here but I just had to say I'm so thankful for this board and all of your posts! My husband has a three month internship in Cocoa Beach and I'd been going and forth on getting AP's or just doing a five day pass over Halloween weekend and the next. Because of all of you I read the heads up on potential rate increases and jumped on the AP's - I'm so glad I did (saved $70 if had decided to do this later)! Plus, I read here about the AAA discount and saved $107 off our room reservation after joining (which we'd been planning anyways as my husband is driving the 3000+ miles to FL). So thank you!!! So now I guess we have to go enough times to make the pass worthwhile - a 'problem' I'm not sad about having

I am hoping for a room only discount too. The dining plan takes too much time out of the day. We are planning on going to a couple of sit down but would much rather spend time doing the parks

That is why we always do the QSDP. I can eat steak at home. I can't ride PotC at home. Keep in mind, though, that you can now use a TS credit for a QS meal anywhere on property. So if there ends up being no room discount and you can get free dining (at a mod or deluxe), you can use it for the two TS meals you have and do the rest as QS.

Good luck to everyone waiting for any type of discount. Fingers crossed for all of you!

I understand - when I buy an AP it is a good excuse to make another visit or two!

Congrats on the AAA discount, but keep in mind that if Disney offers additional discounts, they are likely to be greater than the AAA discount. You can't stack discounts, but you can usually call and have the greater discount applied to your existing reservation.

I totally understand that some people do better with a room only discount. I just am not one of those people who do, so I will go on hoping for fding for me and a room only for you.
