I'm in! I was hoping for FD the weeks before Easter because we would love to go 3/20-28. But we couldn't go without a great deal. Here's hoping.

I am getting a little discouraged with all the pins popping up lately and none for me. The last time we got pins is a few years ago, and they were always for when we couldn't go or we already had a trip booked with a FD/better discount. I keep checking my spam filters hoping that's the problem but it's not.

For now, the pin's wouldn't cover our dates anyway (my dates are similar to yours...). The FD only goes to March 7, and the room-only discount goes thru March 24, which would cover a few nights for you I guess. Do you have AAA? I got a AAA discount for Easter week at BC. Rack rates are so high that it was a pretty big chunk off. Still, I'd like a better deal to make the trip more affordable. I might end up switching resorts if I don't get a better deal or else reducing our number of nights there.

When I was quoted a AAA it was only about $30-$50 off my rate for CBR for March 22-28, 2013. I'm booked as a group with my ds's baseball team since they are doing Spring Training in Disney but don't need the tickets so if I can find something less expensive, I'll take it but so far no good!!

The RO discount that you are talking about with a 3/24 end date, was that a pin that you got? Because the only public RO discount that I saw has the end date of 3/7, like the s/p/d offer.

There is a pin out there now that offers free dining through 3/7 and RO through 3/24. Which of course I haven't received Come on Disney we need some love.

When you get a PIN Email, what does it look like? Who does it come from?

Thanks for someone eagerly wishing to get their first PIN

I have received Pins in the mail, they will have several numbers, asking with a special number to call. That pin is only for yourself or your address.
If you call Disney, thst Pin will already be associated with your name.

Well, today is the last day to book the Fall offer. I wonder if Disney will extend the winter offers tomorrow? Any rumors??

I remember when the Fall Free Dining came out, it initially went to December 13th, but then about a week later they extended it to December 21st. I am hoping something similar happens tomorrow with the dates in March!!

We've always gone in late Sept/Early October but now that my son is playing football, it's not an option anymore

Go the first week of March and you'll be fine!! It's low crowds and you can still get the Stay, Play, & Dine Package which offers a great value!! Offer ends March 7, 2013. After that week, spring break crowds will start rolling in!!!

Ugh, bummer, still nothing past March 7th. Is anyone starting to lose hope? I looked at offsite condos at Windsor Hills and a lot of those are already booked for my week. I want to commit to something, but not a value for $180.00 a night. It just seems like a lot for that small room.

I'm still hoping for something, anything, even if it is only getting a % off for a few days. I can't go beginning of March because of school schedules.

Im hoping a new offer comes out soon!

My boyfriend and I were planning to go in march for my birthday (my parents will be there too!)...and since he dumped me, my plans are changing a bit.

Im still going, and my parents decided that since its my older sister's birthday that week as well (im one of five, and four of us have a birthday in the same week!) She'll come and celebrate with us too!

And im hoping to make it so we can stay deluxe. I want to stay on the boardwalk so I can get liquored up at epcot!

I need a good deal for that!

Yesterday I paid half of my balance. I have the money to pay in full but don't want to have to deal with refunds if I get a discount. I want to pay it off by then end of November so I won't "accidentally" spend the money. So I sure hope something comes out soon.
