Saved $800 with the S/P/D deal! Still hoping they offer FD and I will switch to that, but I am happy with what I got! 115 days for us!

121 Days for me!

My TA applied P/S/D to my reservation today, added an extra day of tickets (I was not originally planning on a park on arrival or departure day) and upgraded from Standard to a Garden room at POR (required for the P/S/D). Total discount of $996.31 over my previous balance (that was 7 day tickets and standard view). If comparing apples to apples (garden view and 8 day) my savings is more like $1160.

POR
2/7-2/15

That's a prepurchase? What's on the DVD? I'd LOVE to get the DVD with stock photos ahead of time to help me make our autograph books!

AND I just spent an hour and a half on the phone with Disney...to SAVE 800 BUCKS!!!!

I don't know whether to jump for joy or jump for relief, but I think I'll just do a happy dance instead!

Some of these we just did & LOVED, others are new for us. This past trip was hot, humid & rainy so we are hoping for MUCH cooler in February.
SOOOOOOOO excited
Feb 7 is my birthday too!
We will be disembarking from the Dream and heading over to the parks for 3 days. Not too sure if we can take advantage of the discounts with so little time.
Enjoy your very magical birthday. There is no better place to spend it!

Congrats on your discount, $800 is a lot of dough when planning a vacation!

Yes, the photopass+ is a prepurchase. Instead of paying $199 when you arrive at the parks, you can purchase the voucher and the CD with stock photos (400 photos) for $169. You also get a code to purchase the photoCD free of any charges.

I decided to purchase mine well in advance because I was worried about international shipping.

Not FD but seems to be more of a everyone eats at kid prices kinda thing. That and a room discount.

For us the 'Kids of all ages' offer will save us more money!
I just wanted to say thank you for posting this and giving us the heads up about special offers coming up. I check for special offers fairly regularly but may not have checked on Oct. 10 had I not been aware of this and I may have missed getting this discount! It's not appearing on Disney World website anymore - not sure if it is no longer available or just temporarily offline, but I'm just so happy I was able to get the discount yesterday. So thank you, thank you, thank you! This board is awesome!

I'm sad that Splash Mountain will be closed for all of February my kids were too scared to ride it when we were there 4 years ago and we were all looking forward to riding it this time!
