I'm a Disney Visa member also..but didn't receive the email. Maybe because I had already booked? I did find it though. I've been on hold for 47 minutes and counting to see if they can even apply it to our ressies.....

We have a Disney Visa and I didn't get an email (for what it's worth, I hardly ever receive any emails from them) but I had read that a promotion was coming out on January 3rd. When I read a post that it came out to Disney Visa holders early, I called and had it applied. Let us know how your call goes. Hopefully, you can apply it to your existing reservation like I did and save some money.

Well, after about an hour on hold I was unsuccessful at applying the discount. The agent said that because of our travel dates (May 25-June 1) our last day would have to be separately booked and we could not do dining with a one day reservation. We would only save about $300 doing this..but then it would not be a true savings because our last day would no longer include dining. This is very confusing to me. I know before when we've had a code, as long as it was valid for your first day of stay then it was valid for your entire length of stay. I'm not sure why that isn't true with this one.... Anywho...Maybe another play, stay and dine will be released for May..but I doubt it.

Doubtful....andthis is a sign that Disney is really cutting back discounts....no more free dining and now no more "as long as your chech in date is included, all your days are".

Not to nitpick, but the "as long as your check in date is included, all your days are" has only applied to free dining....never to the room discounts, so that aspect is nothing new.

Hum....that doesn't make sense to me at all. Our travel dates are May 22 to June 1st and I was able to apply the discount to all of our days and add the dining plan.

Southwest ran a 40% off special for one week back in October. We live in New Hampshire but it was about $400 cheaper to fly out of Boston.

This thread makes me glad I bought into DVC!
Feb 12-21
5 nights Bay Lake Tower, 4 nights Animal Kingdom Lodge-3 Disney adults
Flights-$775
8 day park hopper with plusses ( Disney yes tickets)-$883
Dues on points used for resort reservations.( I am not factoring in the initial buy in cost because that money would have been spent on regular room costs years ago) -$868
Dining (OOP)-$1000

Total for 3 adults, 9 days= $3526. This further breaks down to $130 per person per day.
Not too bad considering we are all adults Oh how I miss the cheaper costs of having Disney "kids"!
