AAA - 2013 Rates (We just booked!)

So we just called to book to see if we could get the AAA Rates, and at first the CM said that she couldn't see the rates yet. So we gave her our reservation number and then she was able to apply the AAA Rates. Saved over $500.00 after the room deposit.

Just as a note I am not sure if the AAA rates are officially out as of yet, or if you can just get the discount applied if you have a reservation already booked.

Good for you! I've never saved that much with AAA. Glad you were able to take advantage so quickly.

We have an existing room only reservation and I was told this morning that the AAA rates weren't out. I'll try again later. Very frustrating!

I thought I calculated the savings incorrectly, but it is a lot of money. Makes getting the AAA membership worth it.

We booked the Polynesian. We have always done AAA and bought tickets separately.

thanks I will call to price it out! Thinking that a moderate will be more a percent off than a value correct?

I called this morning about applying a AAA rate to my February 2013 reservation at the Art of Animation, Little Mermaid Section. I have two nights booked, a Thursday and Friday night. My initial reservation was for 359.99, my new price is 334.13. Not much of a discount, but it's something. I may change resorts if it looks like I can get a better discount!

Are there only a certain number of rooms that can be booked in each category with a AAA discount or can anyone who has a AAA card get the discount on their room?

I made a new reservation online this morning and then called to add AAA discount. The CM spent about 5 minutes looking, but I ended up with 20% off my room only 1 bed at BLT!

Sorry, it is one or the other. Usually we book with AAA rate & AP rate comes out later.

Can you please tell me your dates? I was wondering, because I tried AAA rate for December and they couldn't give it to me.

Thanks.
