My cm also said that at first, but then said "let me try anyways" and then he found it and applied the discount. I'd call again.

Definitely the cm is wrong. I just booked a stay in March with a AAA discount. Try again.

I see ... Don't have to like it, but I do follow you.

Anyway... Just booked a stay for March. I was originally planning to stay at WL, but I chose to save the money and booked CSR (water view) for 10 nights beginning March 6th. I saved $273. Not as much as I would have liked, but it will do until Disney can help me do better.

I had a AAA rate applied to my rm only at POP when I called yesterday. It was 10% Jan 2-Jan. 7. We will arrive on Jan 1, but no discount for that date.

Does it matter what membership level you are on for a certain discount? We are looking to book for May 2013 at either POR or POFQ. Will it make a difference on the amount of discount between the two?

I believe there is only a certain number of rooms designated for room only AAA rates at each resort and once they are gone they are gone. I do not know if this is the same for AAA packages.

Edited: you can only book a AAA package with AAA, not thru Disney yourself. That's why the CM said what she did. Room only AAA rate you can book yourself.
I understand about needing to buy a package, but seemed odd that I couldn't make it a package when booking directly through Disney (which you can do if you're booking a room-only discount through Disney).

So just to be clear -- if I book through AAA directly, I can make it a package and add tickets/dining plan? I generally prefer booking directly through Disney just for ease of making changes later, but I guess I can do that if it means I can still get the dining plan.

I don't think my original post & edit were that clear, so let me try to be clearer:

- you can book a AAA rate room yourself through Disney (or through AAA of course)
- you can only book a AAA package through AAA.

And you have to have a package of some kind (AAA or Disney) to get a dining plan.

Usually mousesavers has the rack rates listed for all of the resorts. Right now, they still only have the 2012 rates. I'm sure it will take them a while to get the 2013 rates posted.

I just waited over30 minutes to apply discount to February room reservation at POR. she said it was a 10% discount but I realized after I got off the phone it was more like 5%! Anyone call for a AAA discount recently at POR. If so, what rate did you get?

Update: I called back and spoke to another CM. Seems like this IS my discount and it works out to 5%. No discount for Saturday and Sunday February 16 & 17 and 5% off the 18th through the 21st.... My DH and I don't usually go this time of the year but this trip will a first mother-daughter trip and my daughter is a high school teacher and this is when she has off.
